The K4.5 million MRI scanner funded by the National Fisheries Authority to the Port Moresby General Hospital will be affordable to citizens.

Pukaikia continues to impress in NZ

Competing at the New Zealand National Championships in Hastings last weekend, Pukaikia won the bronze medal in the Under 18 division in 25.85 seconds, an improvement of three quarters of a second on her best performance last year.

She also placed fourth in the 100m sprint.

Of predominantly East Sepik heritage, Pukaikia’s athletic talent was first spotted by her teacher as a student at Footscray North Primary School in Melbourne in 2012 and 2013.
