Violence, a major impact on national growth: Parkop

VIOLENCE has a major impact on national development, National Capital District Governor Powes Parkop says.
He said violence was a behaviour which everyone should put a stop to.
He referenced the recent fight between the Gurias and Eagles resulting in the death of rugby league fan Joe Pidik.
“Violence has affected our people and nation and that makes it a major impediment to our development,” Parkop said.
“All forms of development cannot take place to their full potential because investors, business houses and the public fear each other because of violence.
“We as peace-loving people should come together and reject this kind of negativity collectively.”
PNGRFL chief executive officer Bob Cutmore said in every sports, there were always two teams.
He said one of them will win and the other will lose.
Cutmore urged sports people to accept defeat.
The other event to promote the campaign against violence is the rugby league match between the Prime Minister’s 13 and the Australian Prime Minister’s 13 on September 24.
