"We understand the legal process needs to be followed critically and systematically as the wheels of justices is known to grind slowly, notwithstanding the consciousness of this fact, we call on all stakeholders involved in finding a solution to this dispute to hasten the processes for a resolution to the issue", he added.
He also eulogised the security services in the region for their timely intervention in derailing the renewed chieftaincy turmoil from escalating.
