AN initiative by member for Dei Westley Nukundi Nukundj to build a staff house, library and double classrooms for 13 schools worth K2.6 million in his electorate in Western Highlands province was agreed between contractor Hardware House and Dei District administration in Port Moresby
last week.
“This is the first project under the current government that is paid for to start in the Dei electorate,” Hardware Haus chief executive Richard McGuinness said.
“The project includes a staff house for Kenembo Primary School, a library for Keta Pori Primary School and double classrooms for nine other primary schools. 
“Kitip Secondary School will also receive a double classroom and a double storey 40-room girls’ dormitory.
Nukundj said he engaged Hardware Haus because it was a reputable and major supplier and a contractor considered to prefabricate and build school buildings in minimum time.
“The hardware provides high quality material, it’s negotiable and the buildings will be erected according to our interest and specification,” Nukundj said.
“Hardware Haus, in its operation over the years, has contributed to the development of the country thus has a good reputation.”
