Koiari clan leaders unaware of protest: Chairman

The Narime, Omani and Behori clans received the national government grant of K10 million Land Mobilisation Funds in 2018 after their legitimacy was established by the National Court.

Chairman of the Narime clan, Saroa Beredi, said the group that had blocked off the Sogeri road as well as shut off water at the Rouna stations carried out the act without the clan leaders’ knowledge.

Whilst apologising to the residents of Sogeri, Beredi said the group’s actions were illegal.
