Matungulu Sub County Deputy County Commissioner Mohammed Abass together with his assistant Walter Katanon, area OCS Hamisi Chivatsi and locational Chiefs on Thursday led residents to a peace walk ahead of the August polls.

The event was held at Kisukioni, which is the district headquarters whereby Mr Abass cautioned the youths against being used as tools of violence by politicians. "I want to sent a warning to youths to stop being used as tools of violence by politicians, they use you then dump you," said Mr Abass.

He added that politicians should be barred from speaking during burial ceremonies and cautioned religious leaders from giving them chances to speak saying that they take advantage of the situations to campaign.

Mr Abass said there would be a meeting for all aspirants in Matungulu so that they make peace declarations whereby he said any politician who would propagate violence should be denied votes.

He further pointed out that he would host a meeting with boda boda operators to educate them on how to form a society so that they can enpower themselves so as to stop following politicians for handouts.
