Security Concern

Student leaders from Western Highlands and Enga provinces from the University of Papua New Guinea, say the recent Gerehu fight is an indirect threat to their students.

They describe the ethic clash as unnecessary and say it is stopping students from attending classes.

In a news conference today, the leaders say the issue is of serious concern and needs to be address immediately by concerned authorities.

The recent fight has cost the lives of four innocent people. Since Monday, students from both provinces have refused to attend classes in fear of their lives.

The situation is tense but student leaders from both provinces have been working together to maintain peace amongst the students within the school.

They are now calling on NCD governor Powes Parkop, member for Moresby West Michael Malabag and Gerehu Station Commander to look into this issue.

They say, most of their non-residential students live around Gerehu, Waigani and Morata areas and are afraid to travel to and from UPNG especially in the afternoons. 

This is the first time, student leaders have come out to speak on the issue outside of the school. They say as professionals, they want to become part of the solution.

In another news conference this week, leaders from Western Highlands have also call on NCD Governor to implement tougher penalties on betel-nut sale in the city as they claim it is causing too much problem for the city residents.
