The successor of the late Kelly Kwalik is a criminal ?

February 11, 2010

Almost two months Jeek Milian Kemong has succeeded the late Kelly Kwalik, but his leadership has not been accepted by its members.  Therefore, the leader of the OPM and Deputy Chairman of West Papua National Coalition for Liberation (WPNCL), Dr Otto Ondowame many times call upon all para military forces to accept the decision and give full support to the new Commander.    Some who rejected his leadership due to his involvement in the attack and destruction of the Freeport copper pipe, which caused the company losses of millions of dollars in 1977.  This group believe that he will face criminal charges without a doubt and become obstacle of struggle.

Kemong grew up with the late Kelly Kwalik and Dr Otto Ondowame and went to the same primary school in Amungun, sub-district of Akimuga in the 1980s and attended the Catholic seminary in Abepura from 1968 to 1971.

We will stop fighting, promise

January 12, 2010

Keeping away from strife is an honor for a man, But any fool will quarrel. Proverbs 20:3

Solomon asked, “Do you see yourself as an honorable man or a fool?” If you avoid strife and fighting then you are an honorable man. But if you like to quarrel about anything and everything then you are a fool. Do you remember that our kids at SD Inpres state elementary school in Kwamki Lama in Mimika, Papua have not been school.

While they had got problem, we were proud to fight with our family. As a father I am ashamed with my kid’s complaint “father, please stop your involvement in the conflict, we want to school now.” My kid reminds me Solomon message during our prayer at Church that the honorable thing for a man to do is avoid strife and quarreling, not engage in it. Thank Mimika Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Moh. Sagi for your effort to mediate in the dispute.
