One hundred and fifty Wawan people from Panas, South Pentecost, marched to Lonoror and cut down a Nagol tower, preventing the planned Pentecost jump taking place. This was on Saturday. Many of the young men were armed with bushknives. Daily Post reports Chief Peter Watas of the Malbangbang chiefly council in the southern part of the island saying the tower was cut down because it was not constructed on the southern part of the island, south of the Pangbo River, "the true home of the Nagol." Lonoror airport, it seems, is considered outside the legitimate custom area for the important and unique traditional event , at least by the Wawan people. bobmakin | April 27, 2015 at 3:56 pm | Categories: The News, Digested | URL: http://wp.me/p2A4RK-BG Comment    See all comments    Like Unsubscribe to no longer receive posts from Vanuatu Daily Digest.
