Central Province leaders say the buai ban in Port Moresby is a nightmare for their people.
Governor Kila Haoda made the remarks following reports of another attack at Manu Manu village yesterday, allegedly by police.
He said this, and other issues, have now prompted the leaders to take sides with the people in plotting a demonstration to the city hall.
Governor Haoda in a conference today, vented his obvious frustration at the continuous harassment of his people, and said enough is enough.
He urged NCD Governor Powes Parkop and the Police Minister Nixon Duban, to warn authorities to stop intimidating his people before physical confrontations erupt out of frustration.
Local Level Government Presidents for Hiri and Mekeo Kuni also expressed their disappointment, saying the ban is in Port Moresby, and not Central Province.
Governor Haoda argued that NCD Governor Powes Parkop and the NCDC authorities did not stick to the agreements that market facilities and other job opportunities be reserved for his people.
The leaders are plotting a demonstration to city hall, to raise concerns about the amount of rubbish dumped in the markets and checkpoints, increase rates of illegal activities and settlements along the two highways amongst others and trading within and between Central villages.
In the meantime, the Governor is awaiting the transfer of the land title for the Boroko market to the Central Provincial Government.
He said only when this is done, better shelters, ablution and parking facilities will be built for his people to enjoy whilst selling their garden and fish produce.
