“Many traditional leaders are making promises to support politicians during their campaigns, even though many of their followers have lost their lives in past elections. It is crucial for traditional leaders to advise politicians against causing harm to their people during elections. Simply pleasing politicians is ineffective, especially when many of them fail to fulfill their promises,”he added.

He advocated for chiefs to leverage their influence to ensure peaceful and non-violent electoral processes.
