Another attack caught on video inside kava club

A Tongan man has been caught on camera punching another man repeatedly inside a fale kalapu (kava club).

According to sources, the incident occurred in New Zealand last night.

The motive for the attack was unknown.

Another man intervened and stopped the attack. It was unclear whether there were injuries.

The incident came after another video clip had been recently shared online.

In that video, an old man was beating a young man with an ukulele.

The ukulele was broken after the old man seemingly struck the young man’s head with it.

The victim later claimed on Facebook that he was injured after that attack.

Commenters on Facebook said attacks in kava clubs are becoming increasingly common.

They said kava sessions were meant to be a place for entertainments and friendly chatting.

Some commenters applauded the victims for their patience and decision not to fight back.

They condemned the attackers’ actions saying older people should be more patience and lead by example for the youth.
