  • Another case of alcohol abuse that is amplified even worse in a settlement environment with different ethnic groups living together. whatever the true story is, it all comes down to having a good law and order committee set up in places like this and in all communities, villages in PNG. Otherwise PNG will still go down this road of senseless killings and destruction. A clear example of TAKING BACK PNG in its simplest form…Our Behaviour Change.
