Houses for MMJV employees?

Response to Re: Meri Wau: What development has the big Hidden Valley mine brought to Wau?

I probably should add that our MP did make a public media protest about MMJV sited all its employees in Lae,bussing them 3 hours daily( and another 3 hours return trip in the evenings) to the camp rather than have them live in Wau but his protests fell on deaf ears to the extent that more accommodation has been built for even more employees in Lae.This accommodation is rented at huge prices from a Nasfund-Hornibrooks JV.
There is plenty of land in Wau where this development could have taken place.MMJV own a huge tract of land here that could have been subdivided and sold back to their employees at the cost of the surveys(salary sacrifice).With title to their own land,employees could go to any bank or even Nasfund and borrow to build and own their own homes.If they were paid a rental allowance of say,K1500 per month ,they could very quickly pay their own home-loans and MMJV would be in front a good K1500-K2000 per month saving on rentals and at the same time having proud employees,owning their own homes and enriching our community with their numerical presence.The land they own needs to be levelled a bit but is over 100 hectares.
As our MP said at the time-"There is little use trying to fight the mining companies as,at the end of the day,they do whatever they want anyway". He has been proven right!
