It is indeed welcoming news that one of Chimbu’s most famous sons has now been appointed president of the Peoples Labour Party (PLP) who will lead the party into the national elections in 2022.
Jerry Bagme Waine has had an illustrious career as a no-nonsense rugby league player in the past that donned the Kumul jumper twice as an inside centre for the national team.
He worked his way through rank and file to attain the presidency after many years of dedication and loyal service to the party.
We, the people of Chimbu, take this opportunity to thank the PLP for having confidence in one of our sons by way of this appointment.
We are sure Waine will lead party well.
