SHP to work in partnership with Muruks

first_imgRugby League BY KEVIN TEME Southern Highlands Provincial Government yesterday honored its commitment to the Petroleum Resources Kutubu Mendi Muruks with a K200,000 sponsorship. This is part of the K400,000 commitment for this year to Muruks. The first part of the payment was made earlier in the year and yesterday’s presentation was the final installment for its support to the pride of the province. SHP Governor William Powi said at the Hilton Hotel yesterday that “SHPG pledged to support Muruks with K400,000 and have already made the first part of the payment and now I have K200,000 to support Muruks for and on behalf of the people of Southern Highlands. Powi, who for some reasons shied away and was out for a time being said: “Previously there has been some misunderstanding with the board and the SHPG where the leadership of the board has not cooperated to work with the SHPG. “I felt offense and I didn’t feel comfortable and I kind of shy away from the support which I should have as part of SHPG give to the Mendi Muruks. “Now with chairman Isaac Joseph, director Mark Sakai, franchise manager Erick Alom and others in the team, I am confident that the pride of our people through the Mendi Muruks will be re-established and that SHPG stands ready to work with the team and support the rugby league development in the province.” Powi said: “I will be making several other presentations on how we want to rebuild SHP from the broken walls and other issues that we have at present. We’ve just recently come out from difficult circumstances. “I am encouraging the new Muruks management, its board and the team to corporate and work in partnership with SHPG under my leadership so we can see the full potential of the development of rugby league in our province. “But for now to start with, I am very happy and confident that through the management and leadership of Muruks we will build a good partnership with the SHPG going forward to develop the rugby league code as a way of developing and empowering our people and giving confidence to the people, especially youths who are energetic and dynamic in taking part in rugby league,” Powi said. “I would like to assure you, Governor that on behalf of the board we will work with you, Sakai said. “As you know Muruks is the tool that can unite SHP and on that note I would like to ask the SHPG and Governor to use Muruks as tool for change in the province and Muruks is willing to partner SHPG in that social obligation,” Sakai said.last_img read more
