Thomson Harokaqveh, Goroka MP and Minister for Environment, addresses a group of villagers in his constituency. Thomson is believed to be half Australian but he sells himself as PNG born and bred. The intense sweat on his head is the result of chewing a particularly strong betel nut, a narcotic popular throughout the highlands.
