THE people of Tsak in Wapenamanda District, Enga Province have finally received funding for the Tsak road which has been neglected for the past 15 to 30 years.
The Tsak Local Level Government president Mathias Waep stated that the road has been in a poor state and unsuitable for any other road vehicles apart from four wheel drives.
The timely funding came when the Reformation Ministries and Churches Network held their Church Aritum opening at Tsak valley on January 15, 2012, where the Minister for Finance and Treasury Don Polye committed K2.5 million for the maintenance of the road.
Mr Waep, on behalf of the people of Tsak, thanked Mr Polye for the timely commitment of funds.
The Tsak road services more than 20,000 people in the area and is the main access to one high school, seven primary schools, two health centres and two Aid Posts.
Mr Waepo said that with the upcoming elections, it was vital that road works commence soon enough to make electoral activities easier.
“For accountability and transparency purposes of delivering services, I suggest the funds be given to an organisation that has a proposal in line with the church and government’s partnership policy in its Vision 2050,” he added.
“We the people of Tsak applaud you, Mr Polye, for the funds you have given to us. We can see the light through your leadership and ministry,” Mr Waep said
