Oro Governor Gary Juffa has condemned the killing of an innocent young woman from Enga accused of sorcery-related crimes.

 

“Many who were there or who had relatives there including a few womenfolk, have totally endorsed this horrible crime and some have even gone as far as posting the photos declaring the crime as if justice had been carried out,” he said.

 

“Our collective silence, especially that of leaders such as myself and others including churches and NGOs only endorses these vile crimes,” said Juffa.

 

He added that as leaders of ENGA Province the onus of them to speak out against this is vital. I urge my fellow Governor Peter IPATAS especially to stand up against this and see that actions are taken to bring the criminals responsible to face justice.

New LLG to be announced

20/12/2017

A new LLG will officially be announced today around 3pm at the Konebada resort in Boera, Central province.

 

This new LLG will ensure that the Hiri LLG is halved, that is Hiri LLG and the new Vanapa_Brown LLG.

 

This move is in support of leaders of Kairuku Hiri efforts to separate Kairuku and Hiri  with reasons including;

 

*Overly populated

*Geographical status of Hiri and Kairuku

*Funding lacking

*lack of development

 

The move to have a new LLG will ensure that the move to separate Kairuku and Hiri will be fast tracked.

 

This was also supported by Hiri LLG president, Haoda Rogea, who noted that to have a district, the concerned area must have at least more than three LLG’s.

Cleaning and maintenance work at the Jomba police cells began over the weekend following a National Court order for work to be done immediately.
Judge David Cannings issued an order for the provincial government to make available K50,000 of which K25,000 was to be paid to the contractor that built a new female and juvenile cell block as part payment.
Another K25,000 was to be paid to police for the clean-up and maintenance of the current cell block.
Madang acting police commander Senior Inspector Jacob Bando said the contractor had gave him keys to the new cells which were available for use.
Bando said Madang administrator Daniel Aloi had arranged a contractor for the clean-up and maintenance of the old cell block.
Cannings said the cell was unfit for human occupation.
The clean-up came after he ordered for 36 detainees to be released on human rights grounds.
Cannings’ orders followed the filing of a report by national court officials about the cell conditions and over crowdedness.
