Board chairperson for National Initiative for Civic Education (Nice) Trust, Bishop Fr. Francis Kaulanda, has said the organisation will concentrate on educating the citizenry roles and responsibilities of leaders they elected in the May 20 Tripartite Elections.
Kaulanda made the remarks on Sunday at Salima Community Centre Ground when Nice launched its Programme Estimate Two.
He said after educating the masses on the need to cast their votes, Nice has a role to enlighten them about what they should expect from the leaders.
“For instance, because the country was without ward councillors for many years, people had forgotten their [councillors] role as it was been taken over by members of Parliament [MPs],” said Kaulanda.
He also reminded the audience that they have duties and responsibilities to help the country realise progress.
“Desist from acts of vandalism because such conduct will take us nowhere as it just derails the country’s development,” said Kaulanda.
