The Tribal fights in Enga Province has eased down after a peace agreement was forged between the rival tribes, the Sikin and Ambulin faction; however, the locals a sceptical about the whole thing.
This agreement was brought about by the Provincial Police Commander (PPC) Mr. George Kakas, to protect life, and encourage peace and harmony between all warring tribes.
Though the agreement had been struck, there has been doubts between the rivals in upholding the peace agreement.
Minor heated arguments and fights occurred, but brief with the police intervention.
The brief conflicts are an improvement from previous encounters of long-term conflicts that result in hospitalization or deaths.
Mr. Kakas sympathized with families and said,” The fighting must stop, it is always the young men participating and it is painful to see our own young man hurting each other.”
Police are on high alert to stop conflicts entirely.
Police road patrols and road checkpoints in fight zones are taking place to maximize peace between the tribes.
Mr. Kakas also urged the tribal leaders and their allies to abstain from supporting the tribe factions to encourage more fighting.
