ALCOHOL, homebrew and marijuana-related problems in Enga are on the decline.
Former provincial police commander Supt Martin Lakari said things had calmed since New Year and the province was quiet.
Lakari said abuse of homebrew, marijuana and alcohol in the province was hopefully a thing of the past.
He said social problems associated with substance abuse had declined dramatically, resulting in people settling down well in their communities.
“I want to commend the people for cooperating with the police and listening to their leaders to give up their bad habits and live a peaceful life,” Lakari said.
This, he said, paved the way for developments, delivery of goods and services.
Lakari said as the Prime Minister Peter O’Neill had declared this year as the “year of implementation” and news that more than K10 million would be given to each district to provide goods and services, there was an air of anticipation to see services reach the people.
“I think the people of Enga have at last decided to settle down and prepare to work with their local MPs towards receiving goods and services,” he said.
Meanwhile, Lakari also appealed to the community and church leaders to continue working with the police to prevent trouble.
