Why "Morobe Block" in NCD?

By Alexander Palai

Out of 22 province in PNG only one (1) province, and in only one City - the City of Lae were Papuans welcomed & land area specifically located, and dedicated & even called "Papuan Compound" for Papuan family to settle down & proudly educate thier children. Some of the prominent sons and daughters of Papua were born, bred & educated in Papuan Compound's own Milfordhaven Primary School, Bugandi & Busu High School. Prominent Papuans like, Wari Vele, Howard Lahari, Vai Kereva & many other big names were born and bred right there at Papua Compound.
In appreciation of that historical fact, another great son of Papua Late Sir William Skate who visited and spent weekends at Papuan compound while studying at Unitech, in consultation with other other Motu Koitabu leaders, earmarked, formally allocated and facilated 7 parcels of land (Agriculture lease) here at 9mile in NCD for Morobe families to settle down (not for free of course). That was a historical reciprocity.
