Haʻalalo machete attack sends woman to Vaiola hospital

A woman was allegedly attacked with a machete in Haʻalalo yesterday.

She was being treated at Vaiola hospital.

Kaniva has attempted to reach those involved and Ministry of Health authority for comment and have not heard back.

Two weeks ago in Nukuʻalofa, bar bouncers and a non-uniform Police officer had fought off a machete-wielding man outside a bar shortly after a fight broke out in the bar  Saturday 5.

Meanwhile four men accused in relation to the death of ʻAiveni Teisina, 36,  were in court after a machete attack in a parking lot in Vaini on October 23.

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.
