AS a Jiwakan, I am happy the three MPs – Wake Goi (Jimi Open), Benjamin Mul (North Waghi Open) and Jamie Maxtone-Graham (Anglimp-South Waghi Open) – are supporting the creation of the new province.
Jiwakans have been fighting for a separate province for a while now and we are happy our dream will come true in 2012.
The people of Jimi are very proud because they are the resourceful ones in the province.
The attitudes of the youths are gradually changing for the better and some Jiwaka leaders are pleased with the way things are going now.
Although Jiwaka does not have mineral resources, it is rich with agricultural and human resources to drive the province forward.
