Minister leading baton relay

​It was all excitement and noise at Korobosea/Manu in the nation's capital for the Oil Search Gamrs baton relay run this morning.

Hundreds gathered, waiting for MP Justin Tkatchenko to arrive and start the relay.

He turned up with his daughters, vowing to make the walk all the way to police headquarters at Konedobu.

The Tkatchenko family and supporters were walking down the Scratchley Rd hill to Sabama by 9am and being welcomed by throngs of students and residents all the way.
