He noted that it is a democratic exercise and a constitutional mandate for individuals to peacefully express their views on who they want as leader.
The exercise, Shatta Wale said should not be characterised by violence and called on youth to question any leader who would wish to use them as an instrument to initiate war the where about of their kids and family.
“If any politician come to you and tell you to go and fight in this year’s elections ask them the whereabouts of their children and family members,” he said.
Shatta Wale urged the citizenry to maintain peace before, during and after the elections adding that “SM4Peace.”
