9-Mile cemetery full
THE Nine-Mile public cemetery outside Port Moresby would soon close its gates to the city’s dead.
National Capital District Governor Powes Parkop said yesterday that the
cemetery is full and there is an acute shortage of available land.
“We will now have to look for another land for the cemetery,” he said.
“I’m now calling on to the city’s residences to take responsibility of their deceased and sent them to their respective villages and provinces for burial.”
