ENGA PROVINCIAL ADMINISTRATOR DISCOURAGED RETALIATION AFTER DEATH OF BROTHER

By Mortimer Yangharry

A Lanekep clansman of the Yanaitin Tribe in the Wabag District was brutally murdered after warring gunmen from the Kompiam Ambum District shot him dead last weekend.

The deceased, Kaiyakal Tsaka, brother of Enga Provincial Admistrator Sandis Tsaka, was reported to have been killed by gunmen who came searching for their enemies in the dawn of Saturday last weekend.

Enga Provincial Administrator Sandis Tsaka immediately called for peace and strongly restrained his tribesmen from retaliation and revenge.

His brother was laid to rest during the weekend with the customary obligation of giving pig and money to the uncles and cousins to follow.

Tsaka challenged leaders of the ongoing Kompiam Ambum political conflict to make peace as he assured the perpetrators that his clan and tribe won’t retaliate but establish peace once and for all.

The Administrator who has been spearheading the peace process in volatile areas of the province since his appointment as the top public servant last year expressed that the murder of his brother has placed a huge burden on him and his people but he has wholeheartedly accepted what has happened.

” Let the death of my brother remind all those who are fighting and killing each other that the work of the devil must be prevented and ceased from spreading at all costs,” Tsaka said.

He warned those tribal enemies that are living in and around the vicinity of Wabag Town to respect the locals and refrain from causing any troubles and involve in payback killings.

“If you are a refugee living with your relatives, please respect the local landowners and live peacefully.” Tsaka said.
