Along with the 50,000 years of rich cultural history, East Sepik, also contains gems from its recent history.
In the Wewak airport terminal, I never paid attention to the details. But behind the check in counter, is an old Air Niugini logo from the 80s. The red kumul and the black text prominent proudly announcing the ‘National Airline of Papua New Guinea.’
On one side of the wall, is another piece of independence history. The terminal marked PNG’s 10 years as a politically independent nation.
I do hope the East Sepik Provincial Government will take these pieces and pu them in a safe place when they do decide to upgrade the terminal.
