With the dry season here, ice cubes hail down in the night and early hours of the day and once the sun rises, next day, this ice cubes melts and chokes out any green vegetation attached to.

Such has ben going on for some time now and this has directly resulted in all food gardens destroyed and rivers and creeks drying up – drop in volumes.

Wild fires are now an order of the day and the risks of food gardens and village getting burnt down is all time high.

Mr Taman when contacted at Woitape confirmed he has sent his students home in fear of students starving during classes. He said most of the student came to school hungry and it was risky teaching a hungry child.

He has closed down his school and is now at Woitape trying his best to seek assistance from the Authorities.

There seem to be lack of action from the responsible authorities in Konedobu. Whether there is some action been motioned and is in progress, no one knows.
