NCD Settlement to Suburb Upgrade

Settlers gather outside stadium for NCD launch

To be officially launched by Prime Minister Peter O'Neill, the settlers this morning walked from Eight-Mile to the stadium to witness the event.

Andy Waribi, a leader from the Eight-Mile settlement, said this is a special day as they will be given land titles and have decent lives.

"We have many professional people in the settlement and such initiative by NCD Governor Powes Parkop is a blessing to our people."

He also acknowledged the effort of Prime Minister Peter O'Neill for recognising the people at the settlement and giving them land titles.
