In a direct response to your article on Monday, 15th April 2013, “Goilala MP refutes Claims” by reporter Moua Omoa, please have my view published for public reading.
It is impressive and very encouraging to see that our Goilala MP is proactively addressing development issues and law and order issues in our home district.
It is particularly encouraging to see our Goilala MP been able to proactively attend to the two murder incidents that took place in Tapini immediately and efficiently. It is something we need to take note off and give praise where it is due.
However the law and order cases been discussed are incidents that took place in Tapini and around the vicinity of Tapini station. How alert and responsive are your 12 commandos if we have issues in Sopu or even Givena or say Kafano? Better still how responsive are your reserve police if an incident occurs in Ilaiap or, Mainit? How about Kioliv and Kamulai?
The Village court systems are malfunctioning. The Magistrates are same old colonial appointed old men that has gone past their productive age. The Peace Offiers who are equally old and ineffective with enforcing law and order, are not been paid properly. And the rates they are paid on is pre-colonial – K25 per month or so. MP Mona and Sr Insp Jeffrey Tewesi, are you two sure your Operation Daunim Hevi lon Goilala will do the trick?
Politics and media publicity seems to be the winners in this so called Daunim Hevi publicity stunt as always.
Schools district wide are closed. Aid Posts are bare and short of medical supplies. Airstrips are closed. There is hardly any form of income generating opportunities for locals in their respective villages. As such youths and able locals turn to cultivating drugs to sell in Pom. They end up getting busted on their way into Pom. Home brew production is on the rise in villages. Incest, adultery and other petty crime goes unattended to.
This is so, all because of lack of basic services and opportunities which will keep people at bay and busy.
Mona, why do you keep lying to the public about what you doing in Goilala when all you are doing is concentrating your productive days in Waigani and attending to your tribesmen requests and even decorating your close family members with latest goodies?
All this is done at the expense of our students at UPNG who have been waiting for their schools you guaranteed to pay up some 2months ago. And also the Tapini Sacred Heart High School free education component you promised to pay on behalf of the parent.
Again, using the media to paint a positive picture is one area you are good at however please take a good look at what the realistic situation is back in Goilala. Because, more lies can be made, but the reality remains as it is.
