Porgera District Women’s Association (PDWA)

Women’s group outraged by Porgera killing

The deceased had sustained gun and knife wounds, believed to be caused by her tribal enemies from Tari.

PDWA President Sarah Erasi described the killing as completely unacceptable.

“How many more women and children should die like this? There is even more fear in our women and mothers because the law and order situation is now out of control, to a level where we are now being killed like animals as if our lives do not matter. This has to stop,” Erasi pleaded.

Women’s association pledges to back members

And already the Association, led by President Serah Erasi, has bigger plans to further move the group, which has had caretaker executives for the last 12 months.
