The Morobe Provincial Government has announced a K400,000.00 scholarship for tertiary students studying political sciences next year. This is in honour of the late Deputy Prime Minister and Member for Bulolo, Sam Basil. Morobe Governor Ginson Saonu made the announcement of the award to be called Sam Basil Academic Award during this morning’s Funeral Service of the late Sam Basil at the Sir Ignatius Kilage Stadium in Lae, Morobe province.
Governor Sanou announced that the Provincial Government will also setup an education fund for the children of the late Basil. The Provincial Government has pledged K50.000.00. Governor Sanou invited stakeholders, businesses and individuals to support this fund, which will be managed by the Provincial Education Division. Meanwhile, thousands of people dressed in black gathered gathered at the Sir Ignatius Kilage Stadium for the funeral service. Today is a Public Holiday in Morobe Province, in respect of the late Bulolo MP.
Ples Singsing is envisioned to be a new platform for Papua Niuginian expressions of creativity, ingenuity and originality in art and culture. We deliberately highlight these two very broad themes as they can encompass the diverse subjects, from technology, medicine and architecture to linguistics, music, fishing, gardening et cetera. Papua Niuginian ways of thinking, living, believing, communicating, dying and so on can cover the gamut of academic, journalistic or opinionated writing and we believe that unless we give ourselves a platform to talk about and discuss these things in an open, free and non-exclusively academic space that they may remain the fodder for academics, journalists and other types of writers alone. New social media platforms have given every individual a personal space to share their feelings and ideas openly, sometimes without immediate censure. The Ples Singsing writer’s blog would like to provide another more structured platform for Papua Niuginian expressions in written, visual and audio formats while also providing some regulation of the type and content of materials to be shared publicly.
