Many have died, many more are fleeing their homes, and only a few are making the bold stand to expose the actual situation on ground.
Over the weekend, Rev Wai Tege, Bishop of United Church in Hela, sat with Loop PNG to expose the grim situation.
He said very soon, Hela will be a province controlled by “he who has a gun”.
“Hela has roughly 300 thousand people. About 50 – 60 percent of that is male, and each of them own a gun. I’m not talking about home-made guns, these are high powered guns,” he said.
