Govt yet to get details on landslide

Speaking to Loop PNG during the deployment of joint security personnel, he said the Government has not received news or information on the landslide occurring over the weekend at Guo outside of Kundiawa, in Chimbu Province. Once they do, they will act accordingly.

The landslide at Guo, which is five minutes from Kundiawa Town, Chimbu, completely shut off the highway yesterday (Saturday) after continuous rain.
