Reconciliation meeting between Chepoketa and Ikiye village was held at Chepoketa Baptist Church on December 20.
The animosity between the two villages arose as a consequence of an incident on February 20, 1952 where late Sakiye Aye from Ikiye village was murdered by some men from Chepoketa village and in retaliation Ikiye villagers burnt down the entire Chepoketa village.
The reconciliation meeting was made possible by the efforts rendered by J. P. Vikugha Jimo, who took initiative to pave the way for reconciliation to bring peace between the two villages.
Rev. Vezopa Tetseo and Inato, son of Lt. Sakiye spoke on forgiveness on behalf of both the villages and pronouncement of blessing was done by Hekheto son of late Sakiye, head GB, Ikiye village and Yesai Vero, head GB, Chepoketa village.
Holy Bible was exchanged and reconciliation papers were signed by both village leaders as a sign of sincere reconciliation.
Rev. Puduhu Khesoh was the minister of the reconciliation service, and the meeting was chaired by Zhopra Vero. The meeting was also supported and attended by neighbouring villages.
