“A criminal will never give you back the stollen mandate and the robbed peace. You must take it back; reducing the renegade to on bended knees prodigal son, even if it will eventually involve the use of the correctional facility.”
This a Sage would say, while contributing to the conversation on peace and security in a community where the notorious few would want to rewrite the history, coercing on others, their violent story, with swords as their pen and blood of the innocent citizens as the ink; considering the fact that “the pen is mightier than the sword.
The beginning of wisdom in peacebuilding and security strengthening is to remain apolitical and defeat obnoxious sentiments to do the needful by crediting to every actor their deeds and misdeeds, before taking any action devoid of any air about hypocrisy, bearing in mind that insincerity is the insecurity that sabotages one’s success, the progress and development of a community.
