A reader pointed out yesterday that the Dirio power project which needs K15 million to get its turbines installed may face a similar fate as the multi-million kina casino wasting away in the sun and rain in Boroko, Port Moresby. No proper feasibility study was carried out before landowners’ funds were invested in both, he thinks.
Visa fees

Vacant shops
There are around a dozen shops in a new huge white building opposite the Eight-Mile roundabout in Moresby North-East which remain closed. Three recently started doing business but only one is left. It must have cost a fortune to build them and the adjacent properties which are also still vacant.
League transfer
Melbourne Storm’s Josh Ado-Carr is already lamenting the loss of his fellow winger Suliasi Vunivalu to rugby union next season – probably in France. He says it will be a big loss to the club, which needs him to leave because of a salary cap issue, and rugby league in general.

Rugby comeback
The Japan-based Sunwolves could find themselves back in Super Rugby in 2020 on the back of Japan’s success at the World Cup. A Sanzaar meeting in Tokyo tomorrow is likely to endorse the idea.
Thought for today
Relationship with a nice person is like a sugarcane: You break it, crush it, squeeze it, even beat or grind it but it will still retain its sweetness.
