Leave buai at home, public servants told

Public servants in government departments have been reminded to not chew betelnut during working hours.

Staff of the National Housing Corporation who had a visit from Prime Minister James Marape on July 15th were bluntly told off.

“Simple thing first and please public servants right across the country. Yu lusim buai lo haus blo yu. Yu laik helpim mi senisim kantri, your attitude (chewing) will not make us change this country,” stated Marape.

“Leave buai at home. Buais are meant for traditional occasions, not in workplaces. Leave buai away from the public utilities and workplaces. Whoever wants to be MD for National Housing Corporation, first thing first, no buai in this organisation.

“This organisation must be a buai-free organisation.”
