Woitape youth given K48,000 for games

If help is given, what are you going to do?

This question was directed to the youth of Woitape LLG in Goilala District by the local member William Samb.

Locals have organised a rugby tournament that has seen 16 teams for both male and female from surrounding villages will participate.

The teams will have knock-outs this week leading up to semi-finals on Saturday.

Samb, who was on ground the previous weekend, returned over the weekend with K48,000 to sponsor the competition.

K32, 000 is for the 16 male teams who will have K2,000 each, while the other K16,000 goes to the 16 female teams, dividing a thousand between each.

Samb called on each team managements to organise the teams better for next year in preparation to try out for the 2018 PNG games.

“There’s a lot of talent here but we need to embrace and develop it,” Samb said.

He said the DDA will be following closely on the spending to see if the money was use transparently and for the intended purpose.

In addition to that, the DDA presented each team with jerseys, uniforms for linesmen and referees, as well as trophies.

He called on the youths to use such opportunities wisely and make the best of it.
