As a former Station Manager of Radio Morobe (1972-73), this is a depressing tale.

Unfortunately, the fate of 'Maus Blong Kundu' seems to echo the entire experience of NBC Provincial radio stations in this day and age.

Neglect of staff and physical broadcasting facilities, combined with a complete lack of interest by the authorities in reaching out to Papua New Guinean people in remote locations to offer independent news and development information.

Radio Morobe's library once held a treasure trove of tape recordings of traditional music, oral histories, 'stori blong ol tumbuna' and other unique material. I guess it has all gone.

Shameful, simply shameful.
