Two men shot in Vavaʻu, one remains in hospital in stable condition

One of the two men who were injured in a shooting in Vavaʻu Saturday 22 remained in hospital, a Ministry of Health spokesperson has confirmed.

The man is now in a stable condition at Vaiola hospital after he and a co-worker were shot in the legs in Neiafu.

Two Tonga Power employees were allegedly shot by a person staying overseas, the spokesperson said.

The victims were from Tongatapu but they went to Vavaʻu to work on a project.

Police could not be reached for comments.

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.
