KOHIMA — The Northern Angami Mere Yiemiako (NAMY) held its third conclave in Kohima on Saturday.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Kezevituo Mere Keditsu expressed concern over significant deforestation in the state capital and notable rise in sugar and blood pressure levels among the citizens.

Reflecting on the depletion of natural resources such as trees, which have been replaced by residential areas, he highlighted the significant weather changes observed recently.

Keditsu, who is the managing director of Puotuonip Nursing Home, lamented the increasing prevalence of diabetes and high blood sugar resulting from poor dietary habits along with a rise in alcohol-related deaths. He apprised about instances of individuals grappling with infertility post-marriage due to prior involvement in unhealthy sexual practices, leading to a multitude of health complications.

Keditsu also noted the emergence of various gay cultural movements including the presence of gay church leaders and gay-affiliated churches worldwide. He urged the Mere members to seek guidance from God and prioritise honesty, truthfulness, fostering mutual understanding to attain equality and strive for success in society.

He cautioned parents against substituting their teachings with monetary favours and fulfilling all requests from their children saying it could negatively impact their upbringing. He further encouraged parents to instill in their children a dedication to reading the Bible and engaging in prayer and also called upon the members to support the economically disadvantaged children from their clan by providing assistance for their education.

Also speaking at the event, Kruzo Mero underscored the importance of nurturing individuals within their community to become bureaucrats, technocrats, politicians, and athletes.

Lhoubeizo Kesiyie, president of the Angami Sports Association (ASA), emphasised the importance of resolving any lingering grudges among clan families. He emphasised that despite mingling with various people through different occupations, the closest bond remains within the family.

Khriesamhalie David Mere, president of the Angami Students’ Union (ASU), acknowledged the significance of providing a platform for members to come together and deepen their understanding of one another.

Ruokuotuolie Mere, in his presidential address, reflected on the expansion of the Mere clan across various villages within the Angami region.

Neilavotuo Mere, associate mission director of ABCC, invoked blessings upon the newly elected office bearers of NAMY for the term 2024-26 under the leadership of Khrievituo Mere as president.

The event featured prayers led by Rev. Khrieo Mezhü, Sevilie Mere and pastor Kevidzenyü Mere, along with musical performances by Khriephrenuo Mere and Pelevinuo Mere. Office bearers also presented general reports.

Neikralie Kezieo chaired the programme and Dr. Khriezovolie Mere delivered a vote of thanks.

Approximately, 2,780 members attended the programme.
