KOHIMA — Tsütuonuomia  Khel Day was observed in Kohima on Wednesday, with a series of inaugurations, including the opening of the approach road NH-29 to Tsütuo Stadium by Khel council office bearers.

The event coincided with the 144th anniversary of the peace treaty between Britishers and Tsütuonuomia, one of Kohima village’s four major clans, and the inaugurations culminated in a formal programme to commemorate the day.

Other inaugurations included the Tsütuo Irrigation Channel, Upper Vürie; a footstep at Model Village; a link road from VDB road to the national highway; and the renovated Tsütuonuomia community building, Mission Compound.

Furthermore, the extended market building, Sokhriezie, was opened by khel GBs from the village and town, while MLA Dr. Tseilhoutuo Rhutso, who was the guest of honour during the programme, unveiled Sokhriezie Market, phase III.

Following the inaugurations, a formal programme and a community feast were held at Mission Compound.

During the programme, K Neibou Sekhose, chairman of T Khel Council, recounted the history of how the 7th generation of Tsütuonuomia faced British forces, adding that they bravely fought in two battles, winning one and losing the other.

Sekhose also announced that the traditional gate-pulling ceremony (Tsütuo Kharu) would be held on December 7 in collaboration with the state government. The event will begin at 11 am at Merhülietsa.

Rhutso, in his speech, emphasised the wisdom of their forefathers in promoting love and understanding despite the horrors of war and conflict and stressed the importance of these values for society to progress.
