Meanwhile, Makali said his house, worth more than K200,000, comprising 12 rooms (six upstairs and six downstairs) and a neighbouring four-bedroom house burnt down
Makali said valuable education documents for his son attending University of PNG, his wife to attend Divine Word University, and four others to attend elsewhere, and four laptops were also destroyed.None of Makali’s family members and other tenants managed to salvage anything.
“Losing Shasha is indeed a double-blow,” he added.
“We need public help. We appeal to friends and churches, the provincial disaster office and charitable organisations to donate generously in kind and cash to help us get on with our daily lives,” he said.
He added that it would cost K1400 for morgue fee and K800 to hire a PMV bus to repatriate Shasha’s remains back home to Dei, Mt Hagen, Western Highlands.
