In a meeting today, they resolved that Babe who made the statement on EMTV last night is no longer a member of the Association.
They say the Association represents over 400 thousand people of Hela Province.
Hela Gimbu Association was incorporated in 1985, with IPA records showing Damien Arabagali as Chairman.
And the Association represents over 400 thousand people of Hela Province.
Speaking to EMTV this afternoon, they say Mr. Babe is not the chairman of the Association.
