He also sent a strong worded warning that any current executive member of his administration, who seeks to advance such behavior, would be delt with seriously.

“We are conscious that our patchwork heritage is a strength not a weakness. We are Christians and Muslim. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of Pujehun district; and because we have tasted the bitter swill of disunity, and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of superiority shall soon dissolve; that as Pujehun district grows bigger our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that PuDSA must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace and development”, he said.
