Kalabu Residents Warned Over Brawls
Warning

Landowners in Kalabu have warned their residents that those involved in brawls and violent behaviour during drinking parties will be permanently removed from their land.

This follows an incident where three men were allegedly beaten up by a group alleged to be under the influence of alcohol at a roadside in Kalabu last Saturday.

Litia Rawiriwiri, who is the wife of Kalabu clan leader and one of the landowners Paula Rawiriwiri, said brawls had become a common problem especially at a popular drinking site in Kalabu.

Mrs Rawiriwiri said that her youngest son was one of the men who were allegedly beaten up in the brawl.

Jokaveti Serukula, who also said her son was beaten up in the brawl said: “This is a very disrespectful and inhumane act.”

Mrs Rawiriwiri said the landowners have decided in a meeting on Tuesday night to permanently remove those who were found guilty in the incident.

“We will remove them. We will follow the proper channels by giving them 30 days with an eviction notice, if they fail to do so we will get a court order,” she said.
