Moresby community raises issues

A community in the Moresby North-East electorate has raised issues about water and power disruptions in their area.

While they welcomed road development into their community by their electoral member, John Kaupa, they are calling on the member to help them in terms of the lack of these vital resources.

The community of the ATS block have raised the concern that they have low to no water pressure.

Community policing member, Jessie Lenny, says they have been faced with the challenge of having to wake up in the early hours of the morning to fetch water.

While at times they have no water pressure at all.

Meantime, a worried mother, Anna Koip, says for mothers and children it is a concern for them when they have to walk far distances then stand in lines to fetch water.

Both residents are calling on the member to help them with the issues raised when he is looking at development plans in their areas.
