PNG PM Marape donates in Cash & Kind to the Landslide Affected Community in Goilala

Papua New Guinea Prime Minister, James Marape, visited the landslide disaster site at Saki in the Goilala District of the Central Province.

He travelled to the site yesterday with the Member for Goilala, William Samb, and the Governor of Central, Robert Agarobe, to see for himself the damages caused by the landslide last Monday and visit relatives of those who died in the disaster.

James Marape pledged the Government's support towards the landslide affected people.

He announced a K50 thousand contribution for food rations from his Hela community in Port Moresby to the families affected by the landslide.

Marape also gave another K10 thousand kina to the two rescue teams.

The Prime Minister also pledged to work with the local MP and the Central Administration to look into issues surrounding the Tolokuma mine and the alluvial mining sector in the district.

Mr. Marape encouraged the locals to conserve the environment and observe safety first when carrying out alluvial mining.

He also urged the youths to properly manage the monies they earned from this mining activity.

The Alluvial mine site will be declared a burial site once they recall the search team by the end of this week.

Fifteen people were buried alive in the landslide, nine of whom have been retrieved and repatriated back to their respective villages.
