Warring clans

Warring clans end 5-year clash

Local churches, together with district and provincial government officials, helped to broker the peace agreement, ending the violent rift that started as a family feud.

The clans participated in a reconciliation ceremony and signed a peace agreement, vowing to put the hostilities behind them.

District Law and Justice coordinator Rex Umpari said when the clans came forward and placed their signatures on the document, they were answerable to the law should they breach the agreement.
