DIMAPUR — Phusachodu village and Kuzha Netho Kethsu, consisting of Leshemi, Lasumi, and Zapami villages under Phek district, reaffirmed their commitment to uphold, preserve, and promote the bond of friendship and oneness during the centenary celebration of their friendship held at the local ground in Phusachodu village on December 15.

According to a press release issued by the centenary celebration organising committee, Advisor for Civil Administrative Works Department (CAWD) and Taxes, Küdecho Khamo, speaking on the occasion, emphasised the need for Nagas to live together in peace and harmony.

He urged the villagers to become ambassadors of unity and peace, setting an example for others to follow.

While appreciating the pioneers for their vision and diplomacy in bringing the villages together for peace and friendship, Khamo observed that many parts of the world grapple with war, calamities, hunger, and social unrest. He commented that they are fortunate to have the blessings of unity, peace, and social harmony bestowed by the grace of God.

He further encouraged everyone present to cherish, uphold, preserve, and promote this valued friendship among the four villages.

Kewekhape Therie, former minister, said in his speech that the celebration marks a significant milestone, commemorating a century of enduring peace and friendship established by the ancestors.

He hoped the younger generation would imbibe the message of peace, unity, and friendship through the celebration and that the legacy must be preserved and passed on for generations. Therie appreciated the wisdom of ancestors for establishing peace and friendship that has survived 100 years.

During the programme, the invocation was said by Rev. Dr. Dingu Kenye of Lasumi Baptist Church, while the welcome address was given by the village council chairman of Phusachodu village, Vehupa Rose. A souvenir during the programme was released by Hütsonyi Chuzho, retired personal assistant to deputy commissioner.
