THE Walk Against Corruption was held successfully last weekend despite the recent unrest in Port Moresby.
“The city has returned to calm after the tension last week,” Metropolitan Superintendent Benjamin Turi said.
He was among the crowd at Jack Pidik Park.
“There should be no disturbances and public events can take place peacefully.”
The annual Sir Anthony Siaguru walk is organised by Transparency International Papua New Guinea as a symbolic stance against corruption.
It involves registered groups from four categories – corporations, families, schools and civil society.
The motto for the 2016 walk was “Vote for Transparency”.
Groups were awarded prizes according to each category on the best dressed and who had the best anti-corruption message.
TIPNG chairman Lawrence Stephens commended all who had assisted in making the walk possible and for being part of the movement against corruption.
“It is people like you who take part in events like this that allows a change for the better,” Stephens said.
