      Mourners with body,drown

      By Caldron Laepa

      Mourners returning to Gulf Province with the body of a victim in the Hiritano Highway horror accident ended up in another mayhem
      last weekend.
      As a result two people perished in the sea and relatives at Auma village are now mourning the death of three people, including the
      body they were bringing home from Port Moresby.
      According to reports reaching the Post-Courier yesterday, two people a man and a woman drowned in the sea at the mouth of the
      Vailala River when the dinghy they were travelling in capsized.
      The body of the victim of the highway accident was in another dinghy. Reports say four other people who were in the same boat were
      saved.The deceased are identified as Mavis Rovori of Auma village and Joshua Hare of Vailala East No.2 village and their bodies were
      found on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
      They were travelling from Seapeharo to Auma village when they ran into trouble.
      Husband Ipavu Rovori said his wife with other relatives left Port Moresby on Saturday by PMV via Seapeharo and got on the banana
      boat for Auma .
      Mr Rovori, who did not travel with them, said information which reached him at the village was that the dinghy that his wife was in
      capsized as a result of motor engine failure.
      He said he was told that as the dinghy was going into the river close to the shore, the engine died, forcing the boat to sink.
      Mr Rovori said a search team was sent out that day, which recovered his wifes body in the river.
      He said the body of the man was found the next day floating on the sea in Kavava village, about a two-hour ride by dinghy from
      Vailala.
      He said the bodies were buried on the day they were found.
      He said they were lost for words as they were taking one of their relatives who had died in the PMV accident and had to do another
      funeral for his wife again.
      Mr Rovori pleaded to Gulf leaders to restore infrastructure in the province as the deteriorating state of the roads was costing
      Gulf peoples lives.
      These deaths can be stopped if only our leaders had us in their hearts, but it seems that we are not. That is why we keep suffering
      for years, Mr Rovori said.
