Things are never dull out here and everyday brings new surprises and a great many challenges. As a matter of fact the message below just came in this moment. (A PMV is a public Motor Vehicle, basically a small truck with benches for people to sit on in the back)
ARMED HOLDUPS – 06DEC04
TUBAGI JUNCTION AND PIMAGA AREA
POLICE HAVE REPORTED TWO ARMED HOLDUPS OF PMV’S TRAVELLING TOWARD MORO (MARKETS) TODAY.
UNCONFIRMED REPORTS STATE THAT AT LEAST TWO PASSENGERS WHERE CHOPPED WITH BUSHKNIVES – BUT NOT CRITICALLY INJURED.
POLICE AND VILLAGERS ARE HUNTING THE OFFENDERS AND POLICE ARE INVESTIGATING
ALL COMPANY AND CONTRACTOR TRAFFIC IS TO LIMIT TRAVEL TO DAYLIGHT HOURS ONLY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. UNLESS URGENT IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT MANAGERS SHOULD NOT CONSIDER ALLOWING EMPLOYEES PAST KAIMARI CREEK FOR THE NEXT 36 HOURS.
We are working on the other side of Moro so this will probably not affect us very much.
