Today, apart from the buai pekpek, I'd also like to highlight the problem of plastics, which is literally choing us to death.
Plastics should be banned!
Also today, I had the pleasure of National Capital District (NCD) Governor Powes Parkop commenting on my Facebook page about the buai pekpek problem in Port Moresby.
"I am open to suggestion and solutions that can work," Parkop said,
"Right now I have not heard or seen any new ideas that is viable so that's why I am sticking to the approach we are implementing: educating and enforcing.
"The other suggestion that has been propsed to me is to release bugs to kill the betel nut palm
". I am tempted to do this but prefer to educate and change attitude instead.
" It wont work overnight but if we continue we will suceed.
"Next stage is to spot fine chewers and spitters.
" I am waiting for workable solutions."
