Kenu and Kundu Festival set for this weekend

According to the National Kenu and Kundu Festival Chairman, Harold Tabua, a good committee has been put together to take on the challenge of delivering the 14th festival.

Tabua said since taking on the chairmanship role in February this year, his committee is heavily relying on funds from local business houses and national companies for sponsorship towards the 14th NKKF.

Financial backing has been received from Pick and Pay, Boss Meri, Great Jadi, Alotau Enterprise and national companies like Trukai, Ela Motors, Lae Biscuits and ANZ Bank and State Owned Enterprises.
