2017 Walk for Life Campaign

Men should take lead: Governor

This message was stressed during Sunday’s walk for life, which was dedicated to one of such campaigns.

Leading by example was the Governor for NCD, Powes Parkop, a big advocate on this issue.

He was joined by Police Minister Jelta Wong and the Minister for Religion, Youth & Community Development, Soroi Eoe.

Parkop said mostly men were perpetrators. This makes GBV a man’s problem to take on.

NCD Walk for Life program set for Sunday

Governor Parkop said the 2017 Walk for Life Campaign will kick off this weekend.

 He urged city residents to gather at Murray Barracks on Sunday at 8:30 in the morning to start the walk.

The promotion of healthy living and change of mindset was the main drive captured in the Walk for Life program.

NCD Governor Powes Parkop says he has seen the difference the program has made to the community and is pushing to involve wider participation.

Governor Parkop said on Wednesday that the program would see mass participation from people from all walks of life.
