The Kivori villagers’ initiative to build a new road to avoid the abuse and harassment by the nearby Waima youths has been boosted with the support of Central Governor Robert Agarobe.
After numerous law and order issues between two villages in Kairuku District of Central Province, the Kivori villagers took up their knives, axes, and spades to build the 12.7km road since last year.
Chairman of Kivori road project, Francis Hau said Kivori villages consist of Kivori Kui, Kivori Poe, Kivori Meauri, and Kivori Hereparu and the villagers sought assistance from the Governor after presenting a submission for the new road project at a recent Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) meeting. Provincial Administrator Francis Koaba last week did the launch on behalf of the Governor at the project site.
“The district road is the responsibility of the Open Members while the provincial roads is the responsibility of the Governor in the province,” Mr Koaba said.
Shape Makers Contractors are being engaged to begin work on the construction after the approval was endorsed by the last PEC meeting held recently in Port Moresby.
