When launchingthe plan, local MP, Robert Ganim, said funds will be distributed evenly to maintain all existing and new infrastructure withinthe township and surrounding communities.
Education remainsthe most developed sector inthe Enga Province and Wabag districtoandthe lLeadersvowed to keep it that way.
However, Mr. Ganim said in 2014the funds will be evenly spread out to ther sectors as well. He saidthe district’s entire infrastructure from classrooms to staff housing to government institutions and roads will be maintained.
Law and order is one area that will also receive extra attention. Tribal clashes are inevitable and happen frequently withinthe township and surrounding communities.
