Gabi Village

​Motu-Koita neglected for too long: Candidate

Their lands have been taken away from them and their villages lack basic services, among other things. This will and must stop!

This was the main message to more than a thousand people gathered on Wednesday evening at Gabi village, Hanuabada, to witness the first rally of Moresby north-west candidate Russel Simon Wavik.

Wavik is running under the People’s Progress Party banner.

The message was clear, it was time for the people to choose a person they believe would lead them to fight for their livelihood.

School to petition NCDC over road construction

The school has more than 800 students and is situated next to Gabi Village, Poreporena with the classrooms located near the road running from Kanudi to Hanuabada By-Pass round-about.

The main concern raised was that there was no consultation with those affected prior to work done on the road.

Head teacher Lucy Badu said since the start of the construction last year, the school has been severely affected with the different types of pollution including noise, dust and human waste.
