I believe the topic for discussion was a genuine one, the very thing that is making our province go back-wards. However, the branches that sprout from the original thread are somewhat personal, political, defamatory, malicious and most of all primitive and un-intellectual, coming from minds that are not well developed.

It is rather sad to see educated Engans cant see the need to step and try to stop our own brothers killing each other, rather than buying guns for our own brothers to kill each other and die. Now, if you look at the current trend of fighting in the province, educated people are supplying the guns to our village brothers and sisters.

I know there are learned brains out there who are pride driven when they purchase guns for our tribesmen. They feel big when they buy guns, but, the fact of the matter is, his action contributes to the death of his own brother.

So you see, if i am not wrong in picking up some lines in the threads that are posted, about learned people who satisfy their ego by supplying guns to their own people.

The original thread had substance and the topic is of interest to the province because, tribal fight affects a lot of things. Tribal fight permeates to the rest of the society. Businesses get burnt down, serivces dont get through, and most of all productive people die instead of working the land to support the village economy moving. I would say, tribal fight is one of the most important topics of discussion for the province, unless you are still in your mothers womb, enclosed and cant see the reality that is affecting our society.

If you are a learned Engan, you and i should not condone tribal fight, rather be an advocate of peace and harmony. Learned brains that dont want to be advocates of peace become the major stumbling blocks of a society. If you feel your brain cant comprehend such discussions, please refrain so that those who are concerned about the issue can discuss.

And one other thing, Jealousy is a big stumbling block for building block for our province. One Engan Excelling in edcuation, going up to the level of PHD should not bring niggling feelins in our brains, we should be proud of an Engan son reaching the skies.. "If you feel that you and inside outside Engan" then an Engan Excelling in business or Education should make you feel proud of such achievements, thats the spirit that will build Enga. If the niggling feeling starts to enter your heart, mind and soul because of someones achievement, than check yourself properly, maybe you are Engan outside but a foreigner inside.

Kaim cool guy1.

Thank you for your comment on the thread on tribal fight in this forum. You have nailed it well. I can't understand why educated engans couln't take this seriously then to make comments that are even unthinkable. Please guys, think big!

Fr. Robert, you are right. This is not your bread and butter alone and I salute you for the topic. Very true, this is not your solution but our solution. We need to put our heads together for "our children of now and tomorrow". Hope your superiors do not kick you out of priesthood for involving yourself in village matters. Watch your back always, kaim, pasere.

There is a solution that is clear for us to see and that is our all loving saviour Jesus. It is in the Bible that tribal fights do not serve the interests of humanity. But our church teaches that if you are threatened you are obliged to defend yourself and to punish the agressor. Kembol can be taken seriously if we consider this interesting news. Tribal fights can actually serve the Lord. During tribal fights God takes over sometimes and exacts His Almighty revenge on sinners. Tribal fighting can be God's way of clearing the rubbish of Satan.
So be aware that God works in strange ways and tribal fights can also help God help us to survive by alarming us to the fact that we are sinners.
