Finally, something good to report: K30,000+ deposited into Lae City Council accounts today

In 2017, the Lae District initiated an audit investigation into the accounts of the Lae City Council. It was found that  council was not getting any money from the  Lae Market.  The council had no records of how the money collected from humble  village folk who came to   sell their produce every day.

Last Tuesday,  with heavy police presence,  the market management and staff were  removed and replaced with people who were willing to challenge the status quo.  Within a space of six days, the  new market administration collected more than K30,000.

Cash is being collected every day by Guard Dog Security.  Yes. That is a measure the council has had to take because of various problems they faced.   For the first time in four years, the people’s money is being deposited into a bank account.

Some of that money has been used to pay  outstanding  water bills of up to K100,000.  When the council has enough, they will begin to renovate he market.   The thing is, this shouldn’t even be news.  But the situation has become so bad that depositing money into an account is now news.

We asked to see that the money was deposited.  So here are the bank receipts:
