How can our prime minister, James Marape make PNG a rich black nation within ten years if there are structural and underling problems of poverty in the cities and towns?

How can we expect someone to live on the streets, under the bridge, crowded with wantoks, on top of roofs and feeding from rubbish dumps?

It is a violation against human rights to be unable to get better housing, food, employment and education. In fact we are in a worse state of poverty experiencing dehumanised socio-economic conditions.

If we continue to experience criminal activities in towns and cities, we will become victims of a society that is very sick and needs to address the problem immediately. The worst is yet to come.

Thank you Scott for exposing the reality here in the capital city of Papua New Guinea. Life here in Port Moresby is very expensive.

Yesterday I heard from NBC Current Issues that people are homeless. They are living on the streets.

They make bridges, toilets and demolished building as their homes. They feed on fast food outlets.

A person who was interviewed by NBC said 'he lived under a bridge while working with Shady Rest'.

Accommodation is a problem so native real estate owners must lower their prizes. K500 per fortnight should to be OK.

Business is one thing but service and humility is another thing. After all what you accumulate on this earth wont be brought with you when you die.

Apart from real estate, formal and informal money lenders needs to rationalise their rates. Charging 50% or 100% interest on a loan is another things which is making family have financial hurdles.

We really need Papua New Guinean owned SMEs involving in real estate and finance companies to be service oriented to and for their people.

They must lower their interest rates.
