Thieves target homes around Kolonga in spate of break-ins

Five properties in Kolonga were broken into between the evening of Sunday March 26 and yesterday Wednesday 5.

Fakaʻosi Maama of the Talaki newspaper said two church missionaries were also allegedly assaulted at the town.

It was not immediately clear whether or not the robbers were linked to the alleged assault.

Maama, who is from Kolonga, said it was a bizarre.

He warned neighbours to watch out for each other.

“If you see any strangers in Kolonga ask why they are coming there”, Maama warned.

We need to stop this odd incidents as fast as possible, he said.

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

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.
