DPE to collect public’s opinions on Peace and Unity bill

The director of Development for Peace Education Mr. Sofonea Shale says society has the right to be involved in matters that affect, hence the exercise to collect public’s opinions on Peace and Unity bill.

Shale said DPE will collect opinions to identify points that people do not agree with, after which they will approach the parliamentary committee overseeing the drafting of this bill.

He said decisions regarding enactment of laws must be communicated with the society to avoid any outcomes that may result in instability and threats to peace.

He said people have already formed opinions about the bill as some believe it is meant to protect high ranking officials who have committed illegal activities while some believe it should not see the light of the day.

The exercise will start in Maseru next week.
