ethnic clash

Residents and workers hit the road… on foot

The PMV bus service is dominated by Western Highlanders, and their decision is affecting city residents.

The choice by Western Highlanders to pull their service off the road yesterday stemmed from a fight against a certain group from Hela Province.

During the confrontation, some buses had there windscreens smashed.

Police have yet to confirm the cause of the fight.

Acting NCD metropolitan police commander Brian Kombe told Loop PNG that he has dispatched vehicles to round up the buses and address their grievances at the Unagi Oval.

For now, buses are lining up along the Manu bus stop as well as the Manu roundabout.

Boroko is a sight of people walking while the main Murray Barracks and Three-Mile road area is clogged up with traffic. This is because all the buses have gathered at the Murray Barracks roundabout.

For now residents are advised to exercise caution while on the road as the situation is quite tense.
