In the morning of Sunday, September 13, 2020, at Kama in Goroka, I was privileged to be introduced to one of the pioneers of Goroka, 78-year-old Ebung Dambi from Mape in Finschhafen, Morobe.
His is an amazing story.
Mr Dambi, who is related to the Zurenuoc family, first came to Goroka in 1966 as a plumber and has stayed here since.
He married his Chimbu wife, Sinape, at North Goroka Lutheran Church in 1970.
Mr Dambi reflects on 54 years in Goroka and his thoughts of the future.
