Kerema MP, Richard Mendani has taken a bold step to set Kerema district onthe right development path.
He handed K1.1 million to contractors for a building and road infrastructure project. Though six months late into implementingthese planned projects, he would like to getthem offthe ground inthe coming weeks.
Mr Mendani presented K300, 000 to SK Wilson and Associates to design and build an office complex for the provincial administration in Kerema town.
He also presented Duba Consultancy Services with K800, 000 to carry out scoping exercises for a road project that will link Malalaua, Kaintiba and Aseki. Various government and private contractors have trlied to connectthese sub-districts but failed and for over thirty years,the road link was abandoned.
The funding for these projects comes from Kerema’s joint planning and budget priority committee. Withthese projects, comesthe need for an active public service, thus a proper office complex for government officers.
Mr Mendani also sought help fromthe National Volunteer Service for extra man power, especially to servethe rural areas.
An agreement will be signed under NVS’s Joint Voluntary program oncethe Kerema Distict administration identifiesthe type of voluntary service it needs.
