KOHIMA AO OFFICERS CONDOLE THE DEATH OF MLA NUNGSHIZENBA
The Kohima Ao Officers Forum (Ao Officertem Telongjem) have condoled the demise of late Nungshizenba MLA who passed away on 29th November 2010 at Delhi. In a condolence message, the forum expressed shock and sadness to hear of the demise of the respected leader and representative of the Aos in the highest people’s forum, Nagaland Legislative Assembly, Mr. Nungshizenba.
The Forum described late Mr. Nungshizenba as a leader in every sense of the word, having continuously been elected to the Legislative Assembly consecutively since 1987 and serving the people in various capacities for nearly three decades as an MLA and Minister of various departments.
Late Nungshizenba was a political leader who was in touch with the people at the grassroots and knew their problems, their aspirations and needs. He was a man who was in touch with his roots and was a storehouse of folklore, cultural and traditional knowledge. He was thus a whetstone for the younger generation and a leader and pioneer among his contemporaries.
The Kohima Ao Officers Forum greatly mourned the demise of late Mr. Nungshizenba and offered their heartfelt condolence and shared the sadness and sense of great loss with members of the bereaved family. In his death, the Aos and Nagas as a whole have lost a true people’s leader, a generous businessman and a cultural whetstone, the forum stated. The Forum further stated that late Mr. Nungshizenba may no more be with us in flesh but the good and great deeds of our leader will ever be with us.
