The West Africa Women and Girls Empowerment Sierra Leone has worked to improve free, fair, and peaceful elections on June 24th.

Despite young people’s ability to affect positive change in democratic processes they can also be involved in and  subject to election –related violence .Although the vast majority of young people are neither violent nor interested in violence, political leaders sometime successfully manipulate and mobilize young people to initiate or escalate violent actions to support their own political objectives. In some part of the country with history of election violence, some youth groups have developed strong ties with some political parties that have been directly involved in violent activities.
Elections are key elements of democratic process they provide for transparent peaceful change of government and distribution of power for this ,a strong emphasis on democratization as a means to durable peace emerged among international policy circles the notion of supporting peace building in tendon with democratization developed as a consequence of the recognition that political often, is the very reason youth took to arms in the first place .hence democratization does not only open up for manifestations of political rights, but is also seen as a response to addressing the root causes of election violence. Promote democratic norms and to ensure democratic rule of law is now seen a crucial for peace building yet experiences and recent research snuggest that democratization in transitional and elections in particular can become a hindrance rather than a solution to peace building. Elections are key for fostering peace and stability in transitional settings and are often as a result one of the control elements of peace deals and transitional political accords for example the Nations Security Council Resolution 2254  
Also suggest that the problems of early elections can be mitigated by the context in which they occur including the presence of certain political institutions and peace building mechanism these, factors are likely to affect not only the quality and legitimacy of the elections but also the consequences of losing the elections for several reason, violence can be unattractive option to influence the electoral process and outcome. Election violence beyond direct effects such as hindering people from costing their vote and perverting candidates from participating in the election, can have long term effects from a conflict prevention perspective low intensity ,or localized violence can serve as a training ground for more large scale violence at a time numerous civil society organizations has conceded hate speech strongly.  
Election violence occurs in a complete system of social economic political and security dynamics election appears to be playing virtually all factors of human existence today .in Sierra Leone .one form of violence that is predominate yet seasonal is electoral violence through seasonal electoral violence has pervaded. The sierra Leonean public space to the extent that many offer forms of violence could remotely or immediately, be lanced to it mostly during election, so much violence is perpetrated in Sierra Leone.
This work identifies that is mostly youth that perpetrate election violence very often they do this without check and actually away with it. Political parties often give youth’s money, alcohol, drugs or weapons, in exchange for participating or causing political riots generally disrupting the electoral process and or buy their votes. Election related crime delegitimizes the process that underpin democratic systems .to preserve the integrity of election and prevent the eruption of election related violence; aggressive effort should be taken to disband party militia group or violent youth wings of political parties that support them.
The Sierra Leone police can play an important role in monitoring illicit activities and ensuring that reports of possible investigations. Multi party dialogues are often held to encourage cooperation and build trust between the different political youth leaders in interests of peaceful and credible elections.      
According to Brchard 2019 as well as fide and Hagland 2016 report says more than 50% percent of the elections held over the past two decades in African countries have experienced some form of electoral violence and youth have been particularly affected in the interests of peaceful elections. Young people are the most affected either as victims or perpetrators, the very rich literature on youth and political violence has identified several ultimate and proximal factors that facilitate youth engagement in electoral violence .including material and non-material.
Preventing election violence through diplomacy aimed at promoting and supporting an environment conducive to peaceful and successful elections and ensuring electoral integrity by encouraging government official’s election management bodies’ political leadership and non-sate actors to keep election related tensions or disputes from escalating into violence and to pursue legal means to express disagreements.

Africa is the leading youthful continent with a demographic index of a total population of close to 1.32 billion people as of 2019 ,60% of the population are under the age 25 ,young people between the age of and 35 constitute one thirds of Africa population .Given its rapidly growing population it is projected that by 2030 the number of youth will have increased by 42% ,this projection presents both opportunities and challenges the youth in sierra Leone have right expectations will and demands toward political participation that need to be taken into account to ensure real social contract between citizens and powers .These aspirations can be best achieved by enabling their equitable and meaningful participation and ownership of all sectors of society making processes. Outbreak of election related violence can be devastating, but experience has shown that they can be prevented.

A scammer from Sierra Leone has been captured by Guinean police.

  The person in the picture is actually Abdulai Jalloh, despite the fact that he is identified as a lecturer from Njala University under the name of Dr. Kanu. In early January of this year, he posted in a WhatsApp group in Kambia that he had scholarship chances and could help people acquire government pin codes, among other things, but that the offer was only valid for those from the South and east.   Someone sent him NLe1,500 for overseas study without realizing he was a scammer.  The scammer claimed that the entire application process for the scholarship cost 3,000 New Leone.  Later, the contacted person realized that he was not who he had been representing himself to be, and he immediately blocked the victim of his syndicate.  He once more perpetrated the same crime against Molai, another individual, and someone else.  In the pretense of an international scholarship, he demanded 3000 New Leones from each person. He accepted the cash and fled without telling them where he was.  The m
