Brothers sent home to Tonga after serving 11 years of imprisonment for the murder of an Australian policeman

A Tongan man has been deported to Tonga today and it will be followed by his brother after serving 11 years in prison for the manslaughter of the NSW Senior Constable Glenn McEnallay fourteen years ago.

Motekiai Taufahema was sent to the kingdom today and his brother John will be sent later.

The two brothers  were both on parole for a brutal bashing when stopped by McEnallay with four stolen guns in Hillsdale in 2002.

Their accomplice, Sione Penisini, shot McEnallay three times, “once in the head and twice in the chest” on March 27, 2002.

According to the Australian 9news, “Constable McEnallay was gunned down after pulling over a stolen car in Sydney’s east”.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
