Schools in the Bulolo Township have closed for the 2013 Academic year following the ethnic clashes and the declared fighting zone in the area.
The clash between the Watuts and the Warias has resulted in a total of nine deaths, several casualties injured and countless homes and properties destroyed.
District Administrator for Bulolo Mr Tae Guambalek told this newsroom that all schools along with other government services like health and finance have all suspended operations since the start of the clash.
The BSP Branch in Bulolo town along with other major supermarkets and retail outlets have also scaled down on operations with many families consequently facing shortages in food, fuel and other necessities.
Mr Guambalek added that movement of people in the township has been very little over the past days despite heavy police presence in the township and its surrounding areas.
Situation is tense at the moment as the Watuts are gathering in three separate Haus mans at Golden Pine, Society and Kaindi and are rejecting peace negotiations from the authorities.
