Members of the PNG Defence force on PNGDF ship HMPNGS Moresby intercepted an illegal barge loaded with fuel for logging company off Vanimo in the West Sepik Province last week. PNGDF members boarded the vessel at 0300am on Friday last week 1st May2020)

The barge illegally entering Papua New Guinea waters with no licence on the captain and had duplicated international tracking signal.

The barge initially used international tracking transponder for Oil tanker but then changed this once they entered into the PNG waters.

The crew was interrogated at Vanimo when what they thought was a Oil Tanker turned out to be a barge smuggling illegal fuel to the logging camps.

By : OBO SEVA

Never ending filth of corruption surfacing again at PNGDF. Its now against the Defence Secretary Mr John Akipe who claimed to be unqualified and corrupt after being appointed into the Defence Department (DOD) as Secretary.

The mind boggling questions;
1. Is he the right and qualified person for the job among others who are much qualified in terms of expertise and qualifications?

2. How was he appointed in the first place?

3. What were his previous jobs apart from being PMJM's Campaign Manager?

Refer to the copy list attached.

Those names mentioned are handpicked by the DF Secretary himself with no merit, qualifications and NEVER gone through the recruitment process. They are classified as casuals and being paid exorbitantly at the expense of the Service Personnel (soldiers) which is the Department main responsibility to look after them.

The list outlined the amount he and his wantoks being paid by DOD. All of them have been engaged on short term contracts. Its mind …

It is so sad the PNGDF Air Element has been hijacked by certain PNGDF pilots and Engineers for sinister reasons. It is amazing to note that the same thieves within PNGDF have been abusing the aircraft by way of engaging into commercial operations at the expense of Tax Payers to make millions in clear profit.

On 13 July 2016, whilst doing one of such commercial flights from Telefomin to Vanimo, the aircraft developed reduced oil pressure on its right hand engine Propeller Reduction Gearbox (PGB). The crew procedurally shut down the affected engine on reaching 18000 ft cruise altitude. Indications of imminent failure were detected whilst passing 15000ft on climb...thank God didn't happen on take off roll or immediately after take off.

After shutting down the engine, it was realised that the Propellers of the affected engine didn't feather. This resulted in creation of aerodynamic drag and reduction in performance. To maintain altitude, the …

The money was paid in an illegal deal arranged by Kumul Consolidated Holdings late last year.

The Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, and the chairman of Kumul Holdings, Paul Nerau, are currently engaged in a desperate cover-up of the deal and a shifting of the blame to senior Kumul Holdings staff.

In 2014 both URP Leader and Mt Hagen MP William Duma and Chairman of Central Supplies and Tenders Board (CSTB) philip Eludeme went out to Manu Manu outside Port Moresby and got some land.
Philip Eludeme got 20 hectares  (ha) and MP William Duma got 800 hectares. These were old farming land thus there were state lands this saw both men apply to government to get these lands. They then collaborated in the last 2 years to sell those land to the Department of Defense. The Department of Defense only acquired approximately K20 million to purchase those lands. This saw their close friend Defense Minister Dr Fabian Pok come into the scene.
