PNG Power Ltd acting managing director Carolyn Blacklock says Port Moresby is much better than the time she had first arrived in the city 10 years ago.
“It is home away from home and I thank Governor Powes Parkop for transforming the city so residents including myself can come out onto the streets and enjoy the city,” Blacklock said.
“It is a beautiful city. You (dwellers) all are beautiful as well, and we all live in the beautiful city. However, we often forget just how lucky we are to have such a city.
“Lots of people around the world don’t have what we have in Port Moresby.
“Some think that life in the city is tough and uneasy. It is definitely much better than when I moved here 10 years ago, the city is beautiful, much cleaner and the people are safer.
“We have got a long way to go but we are going somewhere. The problem is for communities that have not started the change yet and Port Moresby, under the leadership of Governor Powes Parkop, has more than started.
“It is well advanced on a progress to a safer, cleaner, greener city.”
Along with a foreign visitor, she took part in the usual walk and yoga for life yesterday.
Meanwhile, Blacklock, a domestic violence survivor, has called on men folk in the country to get educated about their role in domestic violence so that little boys and girls grow up respecting each other.
