Improving services in the Samarai Murua District of Milne Bay Province will continue this year.

A barge carrying district materials that left Port Moresby last week was well received in Misima.

The barge travelled three days and nights before arriving in the district at Bwagaoia Station, Misima Island on Monday this week.

Samarai Murua MP Hon. Isi Henry Leonard who officially discharged the barge from Motukea, was again on hand to receive the barge on Misima Island.

Mr Leonard while officiating at the offloading of materials at Bwagaoia wharf, reiterated the importance of service delivery for a maritime district like Samarai Murua.

He said after his re-election into office, he is looking forward to continuing his ongoing programs from the last term of parliament including new ones for this term.

He highlighted some of the materials and items in this first load of the barge run.

“We have eight PMV trucks, Misima Secondary School building materials, East Liak United Church building materials, Pantava United Church building materials and Tagula government outpost building materials for maintenance works. We also have solar street lights, we have eight copra driers from India and eight bales of copra bags for the copra farmers among other building materials and items,” said Leonard

He indicated that after the offloading of these cargoes, the barge will return to Motukea wharf and load more items and materials for the district that were not loaded due to limited space.

He thanked his people for their patience since his re-election three months ago and has called on all leaders within his district to come together for the common good and development of the people of Samarai Murua.

The local MP added that many leaders especially election candidates with ulterior motives were only going to delay further development progress for their people.
