It means there are still guns out there in the hands of some people who are secretly hiding it in their possession.
When RAMSI arrived here just after the ethnic
crisis, one of its first tasks was to get rid of the guns, be it high powered
ones or home made.
It was an exercise welcomed by many
communities, mothers, children and the people of this nation.
The country had somewhat ruled by people in
possession of arms back then and that was a scary experience for our young
children, mothers and the business people.
The presence of guns poses a security scare
to the lives of many people and that experience has affected many lives.
While the country has seen so many honest
people coming forward to surrender and lay down their arms which were later
destroyed there are few dishonest people who have decided to hold on to the
guns for reasons only known to them.
Sunday's incident will bring fear to people
and community of Geza and the surrounding areas.
The times when guns moved freely in our
communities and used them are over.
The country is going through a recovery
process from the impact of the social and economic problem.
Thus we should not entertain people who are
still holding on to guns. Such a practise should be discouraged.
The police are now hunting for the
unidentified gunman and we hope that he will be apprehended soon to face the
full brunt of the law.
The community and people within the area must
assist the police with information.
Lets work together to get rid of guns that are still out there in the hands of people we know.
