PNG PARLIAMENT IS A DEN OF THIEVES AND LIARS.

by JOHN ENDEMONGO KUA

The prime minister Peter O'Neill has not resigned as yet with his deputy prime minister and minister for Treasury Charles Abel after passing a string of fake budgets over the years including the 2019 appropriation bill which was distraught with fraud as it did not capture the existing foreign debts , especially from the Republic of China and the component of debt servicing which would be as high as 50 percent leaving very little to maintain concurrent services.

The moral and ethical benchmark for proper conduct has declined since independence forcing inductees over the years to become prototypes of their predecessors who themselves were swimming in corrupt behavior.

To begin with the grand statesman Sir Michael Thomas Somare was found guilty of misconduct in office by a leadership tribunal Court for failing to report his financial statements as a public office holder and yet he clung onto public office as if it was his God given inheritance , not to mention the community college scheme which drained valuable state money , of which a bribe was paid to him and one of his siblings with an outstanding Singaporean Court order for his arrest.

Chan and Wingti are even worse for their involvement in the Cayman Island Saga where K3 billion kina had fallen straight into the Bermuda Triangle leaving no trace of the money ably assisted by Mekere who put the leader over the investigation in his term as prime minister.

Mekere has probably done more injustice to the people of Western Province and the nation when he colluded with BHP Billiton in passing the OK Tedi supplementary mining agreements which provided indemnity for BHP to destroy the environment alone the Fly River waterways which is the livelihood of 100,000 people.

Not only that he approved of the PNGSDP which siphoned billions offshore still controlled by BHP as the people of Western Province still suffer from the lack of essential services.

The leader of the opposition is in an unenviable situation where he is struggling to fend off charges of misappropriation.

In between the big players you have bishops who have been introduced as fully pledged members of the Waigani Club who are conditioned to operate and perform robotically as long as PNG remained as a vibrant democracy there was enough to go around.

The prime minister had been involved in so many fraudulent deals including the " oil search " investment of K3 billion , which was stifled by an incompetent Public Prosecutor .

The Manumanu land scam by the prime minister and his minister's William Duma and Fabian Pok had been swept under the carpet, with the person at the centre of the controversy - Gerry Hersey allowed to runaway after facilitating for his master Peter O'Neill.

We have yet to uncover massive fraud with another beachcombing Australian appointed by crooked O'Neill to siphon money for him once the audits are completed.

If the revelations of his involvement with Wildcat Limited and his acquisition of prime hotel properties and land through PNG Breweries is not serious enough to warrant his removal as prime minister by parliament , then we the people will call for a nationwide referendum to suspend the constitution and appoint a military Junta to investigate all parliamentarians and complete all necessary reforms before we return to a democratic election in 2022.
