By ERWIN CHLANDA

 

The new chairman of the Central Land Council (CLC), Phillip Wilyuka (pictured), has been charged with driving under the influence of “medium range blood alcohol content”.
The alleged offence took place on July 6 on the Santa Teresa Road.
According to the CLC website Mr Wilyuka was elected chairman on May 23 this year after a leadership spill at the Council’s Tennant Creek meeting. He replaced Lindsay Bookie.
Mr Wilyuka, 55, is a Pitjanjatjara / Yankunytjatjara man who lives in Titjikala.
He has worked in a number of jobs including stock work, building houses and as a teacher’s aide. Mr Wilyuka is currently a Lutheran pastor at Titjikala, says the site.
He will appear in court again on September 12.
The CLC said it will make no comment at this stage.
