One of the major concerns frequently raised by the general public in Mt Hagen city is the weak law and order situation.
Michael Nita, councilor for Ward 7 in Mt Hagen Urban LLG said since his election in 2019 as ward representative, he had been doing his best to address law and order in his ward.
Nita, who represents one of the highly populated wards covering parts of Mt Hagen city, said he observed that most of the criminal activities like robbery and rape occurred when perpetrators took advantage of the dark streets with no lights.
Nita said he was relieved that with the street lights in place, petty crimes have been reduced and mothers also had the opportunity to do roadside marketing safely.
He however said there are other areas of need for his people and he has plans to assist them.
Nita also expressed interest in working closely with business houses, foundations and donor partners through the leadership of the district and provincial administrations to help set up a safe and conducive environment in Mt Hagen city for everyone.
