PPPN Sets Up Anti-Election Violence Group In Nimba
By S. Kannay Ziamo, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

GANTA, September 15 (LINA) - A non-governmental group, Pehn-Pehn Peace Network (PPPN) has constituted a 10-member anti-election violence working group ahead of the 2017 presidential and general elections.

The group was set up Tuesday at a one-day stakeholders meeting in Ganta, Nimba County, that gathered representatives of the National Elections Commission, Liberia National Police, Ministry of Transport, Motorcycle Unions, the media and other civil society actors from around the county.

Giving an overview of the meeting, an official of PPPN, Jenkins K. Zayzay, said the organization was established in 2013 to educate motorcyclists across the country on ways to seek legal remedy to problems, rather than engaging in mob and other forms of violence.

He pointed out that the creation of a body to conduct early sensitization ahead of the 2017 elections is important as the forthcoming elections will prove whether
Liberia is ready to steer its own affairs.

Zayzay said the PPPN has organized series of seminars that brought together motorcyclists, law enforcement officers and other stakeholders drawn from all sectors of the country.

He said motorcyclists were mainly targeted because they have over the time been used to carry out mob violence in the country.
