Tribe attempts to break curse

Highlands, Normal

The National, Wednesday July 17th, 2013

 THE people of Gulge Kinsbe living in Mala, Dei local level government in Western Highlands hosted a curse-breaking ceremony last Friday to get rid of an alleged satanic practice.

Various speakers said their forefathers had a belief in a god called Teka Kagl that was like a seed they had planted that brought bad luck to the tribe.

Community leader Stanley Kupti Mek said they reaped what their forefathers had sowed but the curse-breaking was a step towards change and development in their community.

Mek said they lacked educated and business-minded people to support them.

A candidate in last year’s national election, Tui Ekil, said with the breaking of the curse the people of Gulge would start a new era in their life. 

He said living with much struggle would be a thing of the past.

“People of Gulge are looking forward for good and positive development changes”.
