Tuman River

Tumun River in Jiwaka devastates land and property

A major road servicing more thanĀ  10,000 people in the upstream in the Kindeng area is under threat while hectares of food gardens, coffee plots and valuable traditional land have been washed away by the flooding river in the Reraka-Keripi area.

The same river cut off the main Kindeng-Dei highway and destroying villages, gardens and land while it cut a new route downstream several years ago. The road is still cut off. Attempts to have it fix redirect the river has failed.
