SHP set for second roll-out

Highlands, Normal

SOUTHERN Highlands province is gearing up for the commissioning of the second phase of the district treasury roll-out programmes.
Provincial treasurer Lawrence Olkoben told The National in Mendi last Wednesday that following the first roll-out programme for Ialibu-Pangia, Kagua-Erave and Imbonggu electorates last July, the second phase would see the commissioning of district treasuries in Nipa-Kutubu, Komo-Margarima, Tari-Pori and Koroba-Lake Kopiago districts.
Mr Olkoben said originally, the event was scheduled for Oct 20-24 but  was further delayed as Finance and Treasury Minister Patrick Pruaitch and local MPs are attending the National Parliament session this week.
He said Mendi-Munhiu district would have their commissioning next year.
