Chief Superintendent Joseph Tondop has been appointed to lead peace negotiation to end ongoing tribal warfare between Enga and Western Highlands provinces.

Commissioner of Police David Manning said the current tribal warfare in Kompiam, Laiagam and Wapenamanda districts of Enga and Mul, Baiyer and Lumusa districts of Western Highlands has resulted in too many lives being lost and millions of kina worth of properties being destroyed.

He said there is great concern that this fighting must be brought to an end in a manner amicable to all parties involved and those responsible be brought to justice.

Tondop who is currently Deputy Commander (Highland Command Eastern End) will lead a team of officers from both Western Highlands and Enga into the war zone in an effort to bring about a peaceful and just resolution to the war.

Mr Tondop is well recognized for his efforts in stabilizing tribal war zones and bringing peace and normalcy into the communities affected.

Mr. Manning said as the country celebrates its 45th anniversary as an independent nation of a thousand tribes, perhaps it's time to put aside differences and forge a new future ahead in peace.
