“PEC CLAMPDOWN” – Scott Waide
The Morobe Provincial Executive Council has formally directed the provincial administrator to implement a set of recommendations which include directing schools to expel students involved in Friday’s clash in Lae. About 20 men, women and children were hurt when the bus they were travelling on was stoned by Lae Secondary School students. The provincial executive council has also come down hard on the Education Board, saying the board has been complacent. The decision came hours after a public apology from the Lae Secondary School Principal.
