Excellent comments, Reg and Phil.

May I also advise readers in Australia, that if any of you want to find out more about the law and order issues affecting Motu-Koitabu society today, I still have a few copies left of the Rev. Oala B. Arua's book "Whispers of the Voiceless" - which will help you to understand them. $30 each.

There is certainly a case for special treatment and some clear thinking for the traditional landowners around Moresby.

With the development boom no one seems to be planning ahead much.

With the land reclamation altering tidal flow poor old Hanuabada has become the depository of all the nasty flotsam and jetsam in the harbour. Who could have planned for that happening?

There are other people displaced by city development in other parts of PNG.

The Melpa people around Mount Hagen come to mind. The landowners around the town are now displaced refugees living on their neighbour's land.
