BRING THE PEACE PROCESS TO THE PUBLIC DOMAIN AND PERSEVERE TO BRING IT TO A JUST CONCLUSION. Involve the people especially the poor/under-represented sectors to raise and help resolve the basic issues/concerns of poverty, peace and development which are at the core of the talks. Let’s not give way for unfriendly forces to further obstruct and stall the peace process.
