The National,Friday June 17th, 2016

PRESIDENT for East Sepik Tertiary’s Student Union (ESTSU) Newton Savi says students from University of Papua New Guinea are not stable in mind to resume classes or be rushed into making decisions about their education after last week’s incident.
Speaking on behalf of students under ESTSU in UPNG Savi said: “Students have been shocked and are still distressed by the incident.
“The administration should have the decency to consider this before deciding about the students’ education.
“There is still police presence on campus.”
Savi and students from the Mamose region accompanied Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare and Lady Veronica to visit the injured UPNG students at Port Moresby General Hospital over the weekend.
Meanwhile, Sir Michael had commended the students on their bravery and offered to talk on their behalf to the administration to find a way forward so that their academic year was not compromised.
According to the UPNG administration directives students were expected to be on campus and classes were to have resumed on Tuesday.
But the students freely chose not to attend.
