Lae Christmas celebrations 2016

Police chief thanks Lae residents

Wagambie Jnr says there were no reports of incidences and attributed the peaceful season to the behaviour of the residents.

"Police were out in full force, manning the streets on a 24-hour rotation,” said the metropolitan superintendent.

“Beats were done at Eriku, suburban police on patrol and the streets were so quiet.

“I thank the public for observing the season.”

He revealed that a number of drunkards were locked up but later released when they were sober.

"The same thinking must be extended towards the new year.

Lae roundabouts light up

The roundabouts at Milfordhaven near Mobil Service Station, 7th St and Kangaroo Road at Market have been alight since last week.

This is the fourth Christmas that these roundabouts were decorated with Christmas decorations, made possible by the office of Morobe Governor Kasiga Kelly Naru.

Families gather there every night, taking pictures with their friends.

These attractions will be there throughout the festive period.
