I SERVED MY COUNTRY, I NOW WANT TO SERVE MY PEOPLE OF MADANG

by JERRY SINGIROK MBE, DMS.

I was born and raised on Karkar Island and went to Asaroka Lutheran High School then to Sogeri Senior High and joined to the PNGDF despite being accepted to read Law at UPNG in 1975.
I graduated as a Second Lieutenant in 1976 and joined the infantry corps spending all my first 18 years in the field.

I served overseas as an exchange officer with USA Military in 1982 with British Army on 1984 and seconded to the Australian Army in 1991-93. I had travelled extensively.

In between I graduated in Military Arts and Science and a graduate of Australian Management Institute and undergraduate of Southern Cross University for an MBA.

For my thesis I successfully completed my thesis on Military and it's application in International Relations and Diplomacy. I was posted to the Land Warfare Centre Canungra Qld as a leading instructor in Military Mobilisation in times of conflict and maneuver warfare in 1992-83.
I was a Visiting Fellow at ANU in 2004 at the Asia Paci…

PNG HAS TWO SETS OF ECONOMY ONE FOR THE RICH REST FOR THE POOR

Image
by MAJOR GENERAL JERRY SINGIROK MBE (rtd)

As a graduate Security Analyst I can forecast and make a critical analysis of where PNG is heading  to under the current status quo .

By default , association and by choice this government and previous governments have developed two sets of economy.

One that with foreign investment and investors and the other with its own people.

The foreign investment seems to grow rapidly and the local businesses seems to be shrinking.

The other issue is  of leadership and accountability. When matters of economic management seems to fail those in power will attempt to resurrect the economy but in haste.

In which case the nation fails thus becoming a FAILED STATE because most if not all arms of government will be denied the resources and budgetary support to enforce government control . Simply there will be no longer any control.

 Law and Order and the Justice system will be unable to sustain its constitutional functions .

Case in point North Korea, Uganda,…

NIUGINI OUTLOOK

Before we hear any outcry from the loyalists screaming that Niugini Outlook is in the pay of this, that or the other politician, or that Niugini Outlook shouldn’t throw stones at glass houses because we probably live in one too, let us tirelessly and cheerfully address those complaints as follows. First, anyone bothering to look through the more than 1,500 posters and associated articles on our Facebook site knows very well that we pick on anyone who deserves to be picked on because of unethical or illegal actions as public personalities, especially those who are in jobs that are expected to serve the public interest. Yes, Peter O’Neill is an adulterer but Sam Basil is too and we’ve called them both out. Yes, Patrick Pruaitch is a major crook and so is Belden Namah. James Marape is a fraud and so is Don Poyle. We’ve called them all out.

What is our moral authority to call these people out, don’t we at Niugini Outlook also commit sins and live in our own glass houses, so …

GUNS LIKELY TO CAUSE HAVOC IN 2012 NATIONAL ELECTIONS

Image
OP/ED

A meeting of senior police officers is underway in Mt Hagen to discuss the security aspect of the 2012 national elections. One of the topics that came up, again and again in that meeting, is the prevalence of firearms and the threat they pose on the elections. To show the police bosses the seriousness of the matter, Mt Hagen Police showed the police chiefs two M16 rifles, five other factory-made guns, and eight military issued grenades confiscated from raids into villages around this highlands city.
The demonstration was to send a clear message to the top brass of the Royal Papua New Guinea Constabulary that the accumulation of illegal firearms in the Highlands is a real threat to the coming national elections.
Guns have left thousands traumatised and have the seriously grave potential to bring Papua New Guinea down to its knees. Statistics compiled by the police force, show that there is overwhelming evidence that the majority of serious crimes like robbery, break and enter and s…

KILL THE GUN CULTURE IN PNG

OP/ED

Students at two schools in the Highlands will now go without their teachers because they were killed in a tribal fight at Minj in the Western Highlands. In that fight, Police tell us that guns were used. On the same day, three villagers from Kandep walked into our office in Mt Hagen and told us that some 300 firearms are in the hands of communities who are engaged in a conflict. They revealed that over 75 men have been killed in the conflict that has raged for a number of years.
The breakdown of law and order, the proliferation of violence now increasingly blamed on guns, and the inability of the Police or the courts to exercise authority because of various reasons, are more obvious features in PNG today.
According to Police, there is overwhelming evidence to show that major crimes over the last 15 years or more have been exacerbated by the use of illegal guns. Tribal fighting, robbery, break and enter and murder involve the use of guns. We can therefore assume that without guns, th…
