I will like to use this column to state my view on this subject, about which I feel very strongly indeed? In my opinion, an attack on the character of a member of a party opposed to your own is a fair political weapon.
What sort of a man a politician is indicates how he is likely to behave if he is elected; and the electorate should know the character of the candidates for whom they are being asked to vote.
If any man, even though he is a member of the party I belong, is proved to be dishonest, I shall not be voting for him/her at the next election.
A man or woman’s character is considered to be of great importance in accessing his or her fitness for any kind of work. The character of a politician to whom we are entrusting the welfare of our people is of the utmost importance.
