What its like living in remote Kaintiba

by James Kila

THE LYRICS to a song by the popular band from the Gulf province Hollie Maea which goes, “Kerema, yu no save, yu yet kam na lukim” fits in quite nicely with this amazing story of an extension officer who dwells amongst the Kamea people in the remote and disadvantaged Kaintiba district of the Gulf province.

Mogia Honepe hails from Henganofi in the Eastern Highlands province but now lives, eats and mingles freely with the Kamea people for almost two years as a coffee extension officer attached with the Coffee Industry Corporation.

Honepe has been with the Kameas, as the locals are referred to traditionally for quite sometime and understands the practical situation and the extreme difficulties these people face merely trying to cope with the western lifestyle where money makes everything happen.

There are government and DAL officers at Kaintiba, however, their roles and functions lack recognition compared to this lone CIC officer. To these remote communities CIC is the most effective and highly respected organization.

Honepe moved to Kaintiba, a government station only accessible by air in April, 2002 after working in the remote parts of Central province for four years in areas such as Goilala, Koiari, Rigo and Rigo-Central.
