MORE than 14,000 people living in the East Pangia in Southern Highlands are calling on their local MP to bring communication services into their area.
A community leader from Molo village, chief Yakili Yangu said they were still kept in dark and did not know what was going on outside.
Yangu said communication was important and that majority of the 14,000 from the 10 council wards in East Pangia local level government council walk three to four hours to Apenda or to Alia Community School to use their Digicel phones.
He said that the people were tired of walking long distance to make phone calls and back instead of staying back their villages to call their loved ones.
Yangu said when there were problems, they found it hard to contact police or ambulance.
