Sir Tei was a noble man. Although I was much taller than he, Sir Tei towered over most of us in spirit and in sheer class. His eyes had that penetrating appearance of a person who sees and not just looks.

I have a photo of Sir Tei standing in front of Engans clad for war; spears and galvanised iron shields, bows and arrows, and not a gun in sight. His group was ready for war against an equally irate Teremanda/Amala group, just to the west of Wabag Town.

Sir Tei calmed his group and did the same to the others and you could see that Sir Tei had the respect of both warring groups.

No one else in Wabag at that time could have stood between both groups at war with each other and prevented war.

Such was the status of Sir Tei.

Most of all Sir Tei was a gentleman and a warm human being.

Thanks Adrian, Sir Tei was a noble man, his legend will live through the minds of many engan generations to come. Great simplity with higher visions was he. Education was no barrier to his determination for his engan people, highlands region and PNG.

On an other note, today much education has made us educational fools and professional con-artists. Claimed leaders are corrupted and consumed with pride. Again our fathers during Sir Tei's days were loyal tribesmen to their tribe leaders, today no-one listens to anyone.
Sir Tei's Glorious purposes for enga are our failures today. Only a heavenward mind will liberate us from the bondage of poverty and give back what has been long aspired by our forefathers.

If Sir Tei was successful in delaying independence, would engans (PNG) be ready for it (independence) today??? Despite the leadership denial, people enjoy being loose cowboys than colonial bandits anyway.
