MARAPE LIED TO LADY VERONICA SOMARE
by SAMSON KOMATI
During the funeral of the Late Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare in Wewak in 2021 an emotional James Marape while consoling Lady Veronica promised that he would renovate her humble Kreer Heights home in Wewak she shared with her late husband. Lady Veronica thankfully accepted the offer.
However, after 1 year and 6 months Lady Veronica is still waiting for James Marape to fulfill his promise. She has literally given up reminding and chasing him up and has now resorted to living in the basement of the one of her daughter's NBC houses in Wewak.
James Marape has over the last 3 years gone all over the country making numerous promises which he has no means, intention or ability to fulfill. He has a tendency to make promises to people to please them. But for him to make an empty promise to the grieving widow of the Father of the Nation is cardinal sin. It goes against common decency. The Tari man publicly potrays himself as an humble and honest person. This is a false facade and deceptive appearance of the liar he his.
James Marape now has the audacity to publicly declare that he would be forming the new govt from Wewak in honor of the late Father oF the Nation?. What a shameless lying man. What makes him think he is even welcome in Wewak and has the blessing of the Somare family to set up camp in ESP?
The Somare family are believed to be angry and divided with Michael Somare Junior running against NA's Governor Alan Bird. Bird has used the Somare name to make political mileage so it would be interesting to see how all these fans out. Dulcie Somare is also running for the Angoram seat but not under Pangu. Pangu does not have a genuine chance of winning any ESP seat.
James Marape might be forced to camp in his own dysfunctional war torn town of Tari to form the next Govt as he his not welcome in ESP.
