Disaster is now and must be attended to now, says Central Province Governor, Kila Haoda.

According to him, people wait for months before relief arrives.

“This is a very serious issue…we need to change, we need a better system.

“We must have funds parked on the side all the time for natural disasters so when it strikes, we can quickly attend to it now rather than later (months later).”

It was a strong second half performance that sealed the win for Papaka in front of over 500 spectators.

Papaka took the lead in the 50th minute of play when Leana Rawali powered a shot into the nets to bring the crowd into a frenzy.

Papaka continued to dominate possession and put the nail in the coffin in the 71st minute after a mix up in Kalo’s backline allowed striker Ryan Gerega to score.

Papaka (1) walked away with K8,000. Runners up Kalo settled for K4,000.
