Anger over village classrooms destruction

Orange flames lit up the dark night, as they walked in solemn silence, one by one, to witness flames eat away years of hard work and sweat as a total of four classrooms were destroyed.

Vavine Vere said on Facebook they comprised of three grade 8 classrooms and one grade 7 classroom.

“A sad, sad day for Gabagaba,” she said.

By morning, a wave of anguish and shock swept across the village and extended to those in Port Moresby and around the country.
