He said that amidst heavy presence of the military relentless offensives against the bandits at the wake of his administration, the wanton killings and maiming by bandits was still increasing in a fearful proportion.

How ever, our honesty and focus in the deal Saw the near total drop in baditry attacks which allowed our roads, markets, schools and farms to be re-opened. In the same vein, nearly 1000 persons were willingly released by the ex-bandits and thousand of dangerous weapons willingly surrendered with out payment of a single Kobo; Matawalle said.

He said the peace accord initiated by his administration has achieved in his first three months more than what its absence has achieved in eight years.
