Former Tewai-Siassi MP

Former MP calls for peace in district

Zeming made the call after tribal fights in two different parts of Tewai-Siassi, Morobe Province, resulted in four deaths.

The clashes had made community leaders worried about the ability of the district administration to bring the law and order situation under control.

One fight is raging in Sialum, involving villagers in Upper Ziwe, while the other is on Siassi Island, involving Gasam and Gom villagers.

At least four people have been killed within a week, with many more seriously injured and houses and properties destroyed in both areas.
