DIVIDE & CONQUER.
“Keep you friends closer, and your Enemies Closer”
This ideology was used by Adolf Hitler back in his DAY to write his name in the History books. In PNG, I think GC Somare used that technique smartly. And shared Ministries equally among all Regions in PNG.
This kept the sleeping dragon at bay and calm for the last 37 years.
Namah opened the cage and allowed the dragon to break out and run free and is on the RUN right now.
But the Dragon, while it was sleeping, learned a tricks or two and has played that by giving DPM to NGI region, and scattered Papuan Region apart.
Momase Region is at civil conflict which has GC Somare and Namah with Basil at logger heads. And this issue is yet to be resolved.
If the dragon is aware of that and is working overtime to ensure this region – Momsae is kept in check and divided as it is or the Dragon concentrates on setting up the ground works for 2017 is something am not sure of.
Most MP’s would say ITS SERVICE for the PEOPLE and the ELECTORATES but the larger picture is, its REGIONALISM that’s KILLING this Nation
