In a bid to maintain peace and order during the upcoming elections, the police have announced that vendors of food and alcohol will be barred from polling units across the country. This decision was made following reports of violence and disruption of the electoral process during previous elections due to the activities of these vendors.

According to a statement issued by the police, the ban on food and alcohol vendors is aimed at ensuring a smooth and peaceful electoral process, free from any form of violence or disruption. The police have warned that anyone found violating this directive will face the full wrath of the law.

The statement also urged voters to conduct themselves in a peaceful and orderly manner during the elections and to report any acts of violence or disruption to the appropriate authorities. The police assured the public that adequate security measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of voters and election officials.

Reacting to the announcement, some voters expressed their support for the ban, stating that it will help to reduce the incidence of violence during elections. Others, however, criticized the decision, arguing that it will negatively affect the businesses of vendors who depend on elections for their livelihood.

With the elections fast approaching, all eyes will be on the police to ensure that the ban on food and alcohol vendors is strictly enforced, and that the electoral process is conducted in a peaceful and transparent manner.
