Donald urges people to take care of services

YOUTHS, men and women in North Fly District of Western Province have been urged to
take ownership of services delivered to them.

In recent years, vandalism to community halls, classrooms, water tanks and others including stealing off-grid solar panels in some villages had increased, therefore, locals should respect and take ownership of such services in their villages.

North Fly MP James Donald said such act is not good and must stop.

He said the District Development Authority (NFDDA) is committed to supporting community solar power system in Rumginae station located 28 kilometres along the Kiunga Tabubil highway and has delivered over K4 million solar power project.

He said it is a full four phases project where phase 1 is putting solar power in Rumginae Rural Hospital, Phase 2 is the Rumginae School of Nursing and its facilities, phase 3 is the 14 staff houses and phase 4 is the street solar lights starting from Rumginae station to main highway road junction.

He said: “All these phases have been completed and work is still in progress and
street solar power poles are being set up along the road”.

“My people please take care of these projects because delivering such services cost a lot of money for improved living. If you damage the streetlights, your village and the road will be in darkness,” he said.

Mr Donald said Rumginae is strategic because people from remote villages within the district and Western Province as a whole as well as close neighbouring provinces access the rural hospital for medical treatment.

He encouraged his people not to damage the lights staged along the Briompenai village to
main highway road.

“Other community projects and services delivered by development partners within the province, churches, NGO groups, the Government and NFDDA must be kept safe as it will serve you for better living,” he said.
