Youth reps speak out against graft

National, Normal

SEVERAL youth representatives in Port Moresby have appeared in public forums to speak out against corruption.
Five young, enthusiastic students from tertiary and secondary institutions around the city had pledged to work alongside Transparency International when it undertakes a number of activities to fight corruption in the country.
Bridgette Mirio, Brian Wafi, Wilson Kalo, Leah Kelo and Sydney Isaiah were part of the group of dignitaries who observed the UN International Anti-Corruption Day yesterday at the National Research Institute.
The youths were from factions like the Youth Against Corruption Association (YACA) at Jubilee Secondary School and The Voice from the University of  Papua New Guinea.
They shared their experiences on how their decision in taking a stand against corruption has affected them and how they  wanted to educate their peer  and other members of the community.
