A FUNERAL service was held last Friday as relatives and friends gathered to bid farewell to two brothers killed in an accident along the Poreporena Highway in Port Moresby a week ago.
Brothers Kambi and Mangalio, aged 22 and 17 respectively, died in a horrific accident along the Harbour City stretch of the Freeway, last Nov 6.
Speaking during the service, their father, David Lambu, said his sons were gifts from God, who had decided to take them back.
“I believe this is a good test and a challenge for me as a Christian,” Mr Lambu said at the Christian Apostolic city hall church at Gerehu Stage 2.
The boys were on their way to see a mobile phone promotion at Sir Hubert Murray Stadium when they met their fate.
They were hit by the dog-trailer of a tipper truck that turned over, discharging the trailer laden with gravel.
The two brothers were regular church-goers and had actively involved in church activities.
“Most of the times you will find them in church,” Pr Tony Yans of the Gerehu City Faith church said.
Pr Yans said their presence, contribution and involvement in church organised activities would be greatly missed by the family, relatives, youths and church members.
Kambi was a bass guitarist for the CAF youth and was enrolled at Unitech Open Campus in Port Moresby while Mangalio had just completed Grade 10 examinations at Tokarara High School.
The brothers are from Makol tribe, Laiagam district, Enga province.
The bodies would be flown home for burial this week.
