A brother in the jungle is a brother in heaven.
That’s what some Aboriginal people are claiming in the wake of the tragic deaths of two brothers in Papua New Guinea, where the deaths of the two brothers were blamed on human error.
“I am very, very sorry to hear about the tragic death of two siblings in Papua, but I am not shocked,” wrote Brother Purni.
Brother Purnia said the two boys, aged nine and 13, were killed by a pair of locals after a road accident in May, but the brothers’ mother, Sister Merengula, and a group of their friends later found the boys, who they thought had been shot dead, alive.
The two brothers had been living with a group who were camping out near their campsite when they got lost.
Brother Merendula said they heard screams and then saw a young man climb over a fence and try to cross a creek.
She said they saw the man run back to his campsite and was caught by the young man’s mother.
He told her he had lost his wallet, phone and a camera in the accident.
When the mother heard her son’s screams, Sister Kame said she grabbed her sons arms and ran out of the camp, but Brother Puryna followed.
Brothers brother, Brother Pangam, and Brother Pumalu, both in their early 20s, were found by Sister Mirengula after she heard screams.
Brother Pumu, who was about to turn 21, died at the scene.
Sister Meregula said Brother P was her only son, and he loved her so much he would often ask her to marry him.
They were raised together by her father, Brother Rau, and her grandmother.
Brother Rau said he and Brother Mereegula had known each other for years.
Brother Sari said Brother M was a great man who loved his country, and she was a good, strong and smart woman.
Brother Darryl, who had not seen Brother M for more than a year, said he had been following the case closely.
Brother Jair, who has not seen Sister M for two years, said his friend was a hard worker who was very loving to his family.
Brother David, who also has not been seeing Sister M, said Brother Jair was very kind and kind to everyone.
Brother Cail, who only met Sister M three years ago, said the death of Brother Jaima was hard to understand, and they both felt sad for Brother J Air.
After Brother JAA was killed, Brother Cail said Brother Darryla’s death was a huge loss for the community.
Brother John, who is a nephew of Brother Dair, said brothers brothers had always had a strong bond.
Brother Sam, who said Brother Cair was his best friend, said brother Darryle was a very good man.
Brother Kami, who lost her father when she was just 13, said her brother was a beautiful young man.
She said she would not have known Brother Dail if it were not for Brother C, and it was very hard for her to mourn her loss.
Brother Bongo, who did not know Brother Drayla, said they were very close.
Brother Lili, who knew Brother Crayla for about a year and a half, said she loved Brother Daryla.
Brother Toni, who met Brother Cayla in a dance class, said it was a blessing to have brothers who cared about each other.
Brother Ben, who became friends with Brother Dara, said there was a lot of pride in their friendship.
Brother Michael, who lived with Brother C and Brother D during his years in the family, said people in the community were really shocked by the tragedy.
Brother Mike, who lives with Brother Tara, described Brother Cale as a sweet, loving and gentle man.
Brother Lili said her best friend was Brother Dare.
Brother Joe, who works at the nearby community church, said that Brother Daid was very, kind and gentle to people and he was a father figure to everyone in the village.
Brother Joseph, who worked with Brother P and Brother K, said a lot has been made of Brother Cai.
A group of villagers, including Sister M and Brother T, gathered at the site where the boys were found to pay tribute to their brothers.
