Former head of Ghana's UN Peace Keeping Mission in Rwanda, Major General Henry Kwame Anyidoho is appealing to Ghanaians to reject hate-speeches.

He said negative actions by political parties that can lead to violence in the run-up to the December polls must also be rejected.

At a conference organized by the Forum for Governance and Justice in Accra, Major General Anyidoho said, the Rwanda genocide occurred as a result of hate speeches by political parties and in a matter of 100 days, 800,000 Tutsi's and moderate Hutu's lost their lives.

He expressed the fear that the rate at which politicians traded insults and indulged in hate speeches could trigger a civil strife if not checked.

He said the Rwandan genocide is a regrettable incident and challenged Ghanaians to tolerate each other to promote peace and unity.

A member of the Committee for Joint Action and Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr said, Ghanaians should criticize anyone in positions whose actions or comments do not augur well for the development of the country.

He condemned statements by NPP firebrand and Member of Parliament for Assin North Kennedy Agyapong on an Accra based private radio station describing it as reckless.
