Council plans to observe trouble-free Christmas


THE Wewak urban council plans to host a trouble-free Christmas celebration for town residents, Mayor Charles Malenki says.
He said in the past some especially young people have created problems in the Christmas period when under the influence of homebrew.
“Especially young people engage in consuming homebrew, alcohol and other negative behaviour that resulted in fights, damage to properties and event deaths,” Malenki said.
“So we are planning events that will get everyone in the 16 wards to participate and stay out of trouble.”
He said the events would start happening towards the end of this month and continue on until December.
Over the weekend they invited three Chinese doctors to provide free medical services to people in town.
Malenki said last week that the doctors were to have set up their stall in between the National Housing Corporation area and the ANZ bank in town to provide free medical checks for the public.
From Nov 26 to Dec 4, they will be hosting the urban ward council sports tournament initiated by the mayor himself and his 16 ward councillors.
“The main goal of this event is to build unity between our people from the 16 different wards through sports,” he said.
