A prominent leader from Mt Hagen Central in the Western Highlands Province has taken the initiative to recognize his maternal uncles from the Moge Nambuka tribe by giving them a substantial amount of money and a number of live pigs.
He said he had chosen to undertake this customary obligation while his mother is still alive so that she could be a witness to the ceremony.
“I am doing everything from my heart and not (out of) pride,” Mr Dee said.
The ceremony was held at his village last Saturday.
