Kavieng district

Public holiday declared in Kavieng

The overcast day has done nothing to dampen the festive atmosphere, fused with the vivid provincial flags of orange and light blue colour and traditional costumes.

Students in school uniforms, police and correctional service personnel, residents, government officials and the media have gathered outside the white mansion.

The building is quite similar to the Queen Emma mansion in Rabaul, East New Britain Province.

Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill and his delegation of Government ministers will be officiating at the event.

​DSIP fund not acquitted: Micah

Former Minister for State Enterprises and Kavieng MP, Ben Micah, told Loop PNG that most districts, including his own (Kavieng), have not been acquitted since 2013.

Micah was responding to Prime Minister Peter O’Neill’s statement in regard to the Kavieng DSIP.

O’Neill raised serious questions about what happened to the more than K40 million delivered to the Kavieng District over the past four years.
