Val Rivers, Baroness of Burra, dies at 78
Cronies & cash destroy PNG's justice system

Ambuge will be Paradise


In the shadow of Mount Hagen
Amidst the cold of Giluwe
Among vast valley of the highlands
Dwells the determined Ambuge

Brown tributaries bear the Wahgi waters
From fertile soil spring bounteous crops
People of all races desire this paradise
And business booms, and never stops

Nicknamed as the Rubbish City
Attracting scoundrels by the score
A place of dreadful reputation
Ambuge is scarred and poor

But we’re a very hopeful people
Our troubles will disappear one day
With changing minds and good behaviour
Ambuge’s paradise will come to stay
