Moresby South MP Justin Tkatchenko

Tkatchenko connects water for Ranuguri, Vanama and New Town

Moresby South MP Justin Tkatchenko presented a cheque of K549, 000 as the final component payment for the water projects on Wednesday.  

Tkatchenko said Kirakira Village will also be covered in the payment, in the development of stage two of the water project into the village.      

 The first term parliamentarian said it’s not political point scoring with elections in few months’ time.

“We have connected 16 water projects for Moresby South in the last four and half years,” Tkatchenko said.    

Tkatchenko, Parkop fed up with land issues

Minister for Sports, Special Events, & APEC, and Moresby South MP, Justin Tkatchenko, said various court battles over land have caused headaches for him as well as for NCD Governor, Powes Parkop.

Tkatchenko made his comments following a recent court ruling, lifting a court injunction against the municipal government from using land on which the Koki market sits.

The injunction was made after a private developer claimed ownership of the land and took NCDC to court.

City residents urged to be self-reliant

Following the launch of the new Koki Fish Market, Moresby South MP Justin Tkatchenko is calling on people to stop the handout mentality and work hard to earn a living.

Tkatchenko said the major facilities including the new established markets are put there for the people to use and make money for their families and for their future.

“We want you to be self-sufficient, we don’t want you to come and beg for money at our gates or at our door steps.
