I SUPPORT PRIME MINISTER JAMES MARAPE TO LEAD PNG

Image
by DON POMB POLYE

I do realise in the mind of the young a DESIRE FOR MORALLY  UPRIGHT ways of life for PNG. An UPRIGHT life for THEMSELVES, do they crave for!!!. The inference I have deduced expressed in social media and talking to many of them is that,  the  poor leadership  that some leaders have provided  has hampered their progress and success. The conduct of some leaderships have set very bad precedence that has misled many of them. The young have been confused as to which is the right example to follow or who would be the  correct lifestyle role model to emulate in National leadership, public service,  private sector,  in  or in other fields. The success stories are very rare in this country while  corruption and failure  is very  frequent and prevalent in their daily lives.The confidence of many of our  young has dwindled. This is very serious matter!!!

In every comments or statement a supporter or admirer of PM Hon. James Marape when he/ she argue in defence of PMJM he/ she would say PMJM is cleaning the mess created by Hon. Peter O'Neil.

I find it hard to comprehend and always beg question 'is the person commenting knows what he/she is saying?' 

Peter O'Neil employed the same people that are now being employed by PMJM. They all created the mess together and now PMJM tries to clean it. While in the process of cleaning it PMJM is careful not to hurt his own foot. That something we all citizens should know and understand.
For us to praise PMJM and denounce PO is not a right thing to do.

To avoid shooting his own foot PMJM would change and shift his strategies to deviate our attention from the real corruption issues that he vowed to fight when he took over from PMPO.

Fighting of Coronavirus, approval of Superannuation funds, Sapotim Wantok Foundation and his other actions and deeds are mechanism employed…

James Marape- The 8th Prime Minister. A year in Review

Image
by GABRIEL RAMOI

Twelve months ago who among us would have predicted  the rise of a much under rated James Marape as the 8th Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea putting an end to eight years of tumultuous rule by Peter O’Neill and his PNC Party.  In this article we profile the achievement of James Marape over the last 12 months and lay out the challenges both for Marape as Prime Minister and for the country he now leads and contrast that with the Style and achievements of Peter O’Neill, the man he replaced as Prime Minister.

James Marape continues to intrigue and surprise us with the array of tools he is deploying from a Pandora box of politics. Intrigue because from a base without money or support of big businesses or a regional based political party he was able to effect a regime change in PNG, a feat that will be hard to repeat for a long while. Surprised because the man he replaced is no political midget and to successful pull the rug from under   O’Neill’s   feet is a master strok…

IN POLITICS NEVER RETREAT, NEVER RETRACT,NEVER ADMIT A MISTAKE.

In politics… never retreat, never retract… never admit a mistake. Those were the words of a tyrant named Napoleon Bonaparte.

The recent revelation regarding several Whatsapp messages among our Honourable Prime Minster, James Marape and his Pangu Party cohorts have stirred up so much anxiety amongst Papua New Guineans whilst also reinforcing blind faith in those that see him as a stainless demigod. Amidst the eminent threat posed by the Corona Virus pandemic, such a leak has been modulated by the government and the Prime Minister. Even educated Papua New Guineans do not wish to comment on the issue for varying reasons.

I believe that everything happens for a reason and we all must embrace the fact that there is no such thing as accident; it is fate misnamed.

Only a fool would believe that Pangu Party members weren’t promised anything for their loyalty and their support for the Prime Minister. Only a fool would believe that all the governments formed, both past and prese…

PM SCRUTINISE HEALTH MINISTER AND SENIOR OFFICERS

SCRUTINISE HEALTH MINISTER AND SENIOR OFFICERS AT DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH ON COVID - 19 FUNDING

Can the Rt Honourable Prime Minister scrutinise and examine the minister responsible for Health & HIV AIDS and other senior officers on the accessibility and spending of COVID 19 Funding.

From the reliable sources have informed me that the minister is interfering with the administrative functions of the department in the procurement process. Other senior officials are also colluding with the minister to have some personal interest in their management of the funding earmarked for the pandemic.

The following issues need to be looked at;

1.There are two (2) resigned officers (names withheld) have been recalled and engaged by the dept to assist the acting secretary during this time of crisis. Well its reasonable and a good call in fact that their memories and experiences are required at this stage.
However, it doesn’t not go well with other senior officers who are currentl…

CENTRE-PIECE OF CABINET: KRAMER & KUA

Image
by JOHN KAMA
The new Marape-Davis government has created a centre-piece in the cabinet that the entire country is drawn in with so much interest in the appointment of Kerenga Kua and Bryan Kramer among the 33 cabinet ministers.The following are the uniqueness about their appointment, hence, became the centre-piece of attraction:
1. They were members of the opposition who never voted for PMJM.
2. Their appointment to ministry as opposition members was unconventional in the WestMinster System.
3. They were the two top critics of the last government whom PMJM & majority of his current cabinet members were part of.
4. They both stood for zero tolerance on corruption at all levels by both citizens and non-citizens.
5. They were both outspoken on white collar corruption and the arrest of former PM Hon. Peter O'Neill and his cronies.
6. They both understood every letter of the law and were willing to use the courts as their strongest weapon against anyone.
Why PMJM appointed them? Be…

Twisted tale into corruption [Excessive Legal billings and corrupt state officials]

Image
by MELL LAKA
The Attorney General is empowered to brief private lawyers/counsel to act for the State. This occurs when there is need for particular expertise or the Attorney General is unable to undertake the work itself. From Finance Department records a Commission of enquiry found that over the period 2000 to 2006 the State incurred liability in payouts of approximately K100 million in legal fees. The Inquiry saw that there has been no compliance with the Public Finances (Management) Act procedures of expenditure for approval prior to engaging in those brief outs. A  Commission of enquiry after making extensive examination of these payments with ready assistance from all the law firms concerned except Paul Paraka Lawyers which has been the recipient of at least the K41 million in brief out fees for January 2003 to August 2006 noted in NEC records.

 Let me illustrate what I mean by excessive legal fee with our so called Chief Secretary of the National Government, Mr. Isaac Lupari. Mr I…

FAILED ELECTION

Image
by JAMES MAKOP

Less than a week ago I posted an article regarding the deterioration of democracy as we know it in our country.
Now the results of the elections are slowly but surely bearing testimony to foul play, rigging and indicative of sinister motives at play.
Fellow citizens, we cannot ask for more evidence that what we have now.
1. The Rule of Law no longer applies to Peter O'Neill and his cronies.
2. People who are in positions to make a difference for the better have sold their souls for the proverbial 30 pieces of silver. That includes the Electoral Commissioner, the Police Commissioner, the election managers and returning officers and people down the rank and file.
3. Isaac Lupari had usurped the functions of the election advisory committee and illegally orchestrated the biggest denial of the right to choose elected representatives by citizens.
4. The economy is dysfunctional. Our foreign missions are being boarded up and shut down due non payment of lease…
