PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (The National, Jan. 10) – Seven Papua New Guinea tribes along the Karamui-Kundiawa road project route have been given tools to clear bushes for the project.

The road is to start from Karamui station to Kilau-Mogiagi before connecting with the Gumini-Kundiawa road.

The tools were presented to the people at the Karamui government station by Chimbu Governor Peter Launa, witnessed by more than 2,000 people and the entire provincial cabinet. The tools cost about K10,000 (US$3,180) .

"Before my term ends, I want to connect Karamui by road," Luna said, adding that he had secured K2 million (US$636,000) for the project.

However, this will be boosted when the National Government fulfills its commitment and chips in some money.

When the bushes are cleared, a road construction company will be engaged to begin actual work.

Karamui Member of Parliament and Correctional Service minister Posi Menai also assured the people of his financial support. He also promised to buy a chainsaw to help the people clear the bushes.
