PM’s salute
It may look odd but it is not unusual for leaders in civilian clothes saluting members of the disciplined forces. Prime Minister James Marape did that when farewelling the 100-strong contingent to Australia on Monday.
Paying tithes
Prime Minister James Marape recently advised churches not to rely on MPs for money but to use tithes they collect weekly. Good idea, but then tithes, unlike taxes, are not mandatory. Only some church members pay their dues.
Four pigs
Church members in Enga and Hela transported 36 pigs to the Evangelical Lutheran Church national synod at Boana, Nawaeb, Morobe. But four died along the way.
Poor taste
Graffiti in Port Moresby has now gone up another level with a competition staged online by a group. The members compare their illegal work online. One even posted a picture of himself holding a can of spray. Over to you NCD police.
Family members
From a reader: Some family members will travel miles to attend the funeral of a relative, but never bother to visit his or her when sick, or when in need of help.
Thought for the day
The most expensive thing in the world is trust. It can take years to earn and a matter of seconds to lose.
