Fletcher Morobe

Settlers left in shock

Apparently Fletcher Morobe had won a 10 year court battle over this piece of land, and the physical removal of permanent to semi-permanent structures, was a result of the non-adherence to a number of eviction notices issued to the community.

A lone bulldozer took down homes belonging to three generations of settlers.

Police were there to supervise; some settlers stood by and watched, others made it there business to take down their houses in an orderly fashion.
