“I do not propose to take any action against Charmungis or Salarzai, as they are not opposed us as tribes, although individuals have fought against us in Mamund valley. The Khan of Nawagai can put pressure on former tribe, and the Salarzai can be kept in order by Khans of Jhar and Khar. There remains the Mamunds. Political Officer has today received word that Wara section, which comprises about half the tribe, is on its way in with some arms and instalment of fine; the Kakazai, which is the remaining half, is also inclined to come in, and I am suspending further punishment till intentions of tribes are quite clear.”

“The Mamunds, the last and most important of the four sections of the Tarkanri tribe, inhabit the Mamund or Watelai valley, which lies between the two Salarzai valleys of Chaharmung and Babukarra. Like the Salarzai, the Mamunds also own lands in Shortan and Marwara, in the Kunar valley of Afghanistan. From the Lakra range, which forms its north-western boundary, a spur jutting out near Lakra Sar (9,370 feet) runs south-east and divides the main Watelai Nala from a western branch called the Kakazai Nala. To the east of the Watelai, the valley is known as Wur Mamund, and to the west as Kakazai Mamund country.”
