PNG PM Marape Delivers K32 Million to Chimbu for Major Projects

 Prime Minister Hon. James Marape has delivered K32 million for major projects in Chimbu Province.

The major projects are:

- K10 million to start work on the long-overdue road linking remote Karamui-Nomane, a landlocked district with massive agriculture potential, with the rest of Chimbu;

- K5 million for Sir Joseph Nombri Memorial Hospital in Kundiawa which is currently rated as the best hospital in the country with patients from all over the country;

- K5 million for the overdue Kundiawa Water Project; and

- K2 million for education in all six districts of Chimbu.

Prime Minister Marape made the announcement in front of hundreds of people who braved pouring rain at Dixon’s Oval in Kundiawa on Friday to hear him speak.

With him were all seven Chimbu MPs, namely:

- Governor Hon. Michael Dua (United Resources Party);

- Karamui-Nomane MP Hon. Geoffrey Kama (Triumph Heritage Empowerment Party);

- Kerowagi MP Hon. Bari Palma (People’s National Congress);

- Kundiawa MP and Energy Minister Hon. William Onglo (United Resources Party);

- Sinasina-Yongomugl MP and Petroleum Minister Hon. Kerenga Kua (National Party), Chuave MP;

- Chuave MP and Minister for Environment Conservation and Climate Change Hon. Wera Mori (Pangu Pati); and

- Gumine MP and Minister for Higher Education Research Science and Technology Hon. Nick Kuman (Pangu Pati).

Prime Minister Marape was accompanied by Works Minister Hon. Michael Nali and Secretary David Wereh, Agriculture and Livestock Minister Hon. John Simon and Secretary Daniel Kombuk, Transport and Infrastructure Minister Hon. William Samb, and Vice-Minister for Treasury and Tambul-Nebilyer MP Win Baki Dakri.

Former Treasurer and Kandep MP, Don Polye, who is founder of THE Party, accompanied the delegation.

Prime Minister Marape told the people that such was the importance of linking Karamui-Nomane that Works Minister Nali would add another K1.9 million on top of the K10 million to start work on the road.

He made special mention of Kama for sacrificing his Labour Ministry in the recent ministerial reshuffle for political stability.

“When I go to Karamui in 2022 to campaign for Geoffrey Kama, we should be able to travel by road,” he said.

“We are building roads into the most-undeveloped areas.

“Some people think only about Port Moresby and the main highways, I will build rural roads into your villages.

“Our rural people are crying our for want of services.

“When I come back here for another Chimbu Provincial Government-hosted event, the full costing of the road from Kundiawa to Karamui should be ready, and hopefully a contract in the range of K100 to K200 million should be awarded.

“I should also be able to announce start of the work from here (Kundiawa) to Bundi and on to Madang.”

The Chimbu Road projects are all part of the Marape-Basil Government's 'Connect PNG' programme to link up rural areas of the country by road.

Prime Minister stayed in Kundiawa on Friday and on Saturday travelled back to Karamui where he spent Sabbath with the people.
