Goilala District is made up of 3 LLGs – Tapini, Woitape and Guari.

Tapini LLG is the Head Quarters of the Goilala District. And most obviously is the Administrative hub of the District. As such, it has the Districts’ Administrator and the District’s only High School and yes the best brand new state of the art Hospital which was co-funded by Australian Aid and Central Provincial Government under the leadership of former Governor of Central Province Alphone Moroi and was spear headed by the Catholic Church and its Bereina Dioceses.

While not all is rosy in Tapini, at least basic amenities of a HQ for a District is visible.

For example the Goilala Highway, connects Tapini to Port Moresby. Having a main market and a Police Station.

Back in the Post Colonial era and immediately after 1975, Tapini was a bustling, lively and eventful station which had literally every thing required of a place to be tagged a Head Quarters.

Post Office, Court House, Tapini Lodge, functioning telephone systems, 24 hour Hydro, Mini Super Market – LAGU TRADING & MATSIA TRADING, Department of Works Yard and Huge shed which had heavy equipment available for road works, a lively Department of Primary Industries, a Health Centre which was the best back those days. And a committed District Administrator and his troops of equally faithful public servants who lived in Tapini to perform their duties.

The Goilala Highway was well kept, and had trucks running up and down without a hitch. We had racing motor bikes and motor cars raising up and down this dusty roads carefree.

The current state of affairs has seen the DoW shed closed down, Mini Super markets closed down, police station having just a handful of personnel, court house closed, Lodge closed, Hydro closed, health center, DPI closed. Telephone networks and service die a silent agonising death which the Post Office service just extincted.

And all the public servants has migrated to Port Moresby and operate under rain trees in Konedobu.

Woitape and Guari are politically the sub-district Head Quaters of Goilala. They are supposed to be second in command posts/hubs which Tapini gives orders to and these orders are executed out of this locations.

Right now, Guari and Woitape does not have District Manager. Let alone the sub-district administrative office complex are merely a run down hide out used by drug addicts and strayed domesticated and wild animals alike.

For Guari there is no such thing as a Sub-District Office. Because there is none in existence.

No one knows who is the District Manager or the Council Manager is for Guari and Woitape.

If there are basic government services like Health and Education with Postal services and telecommunication service available and is available in Guari and Woitape is really something politicians and their brief case carriers does not care about.

If such is the current scenario of our District then what has the respective political heads of the District that we have voted in consecutively since 1975 done for our District?

Starting with Andrew Ruddaka, Elijah Vino, Camilo Esef, Ajax Bia, Fabine Inne, Mathew Poia, and the current Daniel K Mona.

What has this so call leaders done for Tapini, Guari and Woitape? What has these clowns done for Goilala and her people generally?

It hurts so bad to see these clowns have a high flying life down in Port Moresby and do their thing on TV and print Media and over the air waves, but the actual reality is shitty and so broke down and hurting.

It leaves one to wonder if these guys are really humans and have the commen 5 senses of SIGHT, SMELL, TOUCH, FEEL and TASTE.

Because it seems they lack all of these senses and as such they just live in a world of their own and dont give a slightest of f@cks about what, how, why and where and who of Goilala District and her people.

Unitech Invests To Have Wi Fi Coverage – EMTV

The Lae University of Technology will be investing a significant amount of financial resources to develop a Wi-Fi network for the whole of the University Campus.

The Vice for Unitech, Dr Schram, since resuming Office has embarked on ensuring the Premier Technical University in Papua New Guinea lives up to its reputation.

And with the limited space in computer laboratories in Unitech Campus, Wifi Technology seems the remedy that will assist in cutting down on the high demand for Computers in departmental labs.

The primary reason why students rush into and scrump up in Computer laboratories is to do research on the internet.

Having a Wifi service accessible throughout the campus will greatly improve the ease with which students access internet services.

This service is long over due but only visionary people see the need to have such a service invested in.

Thank You VC Schram.

How can this two entities work together for the benefit of the people who call Goilala their home? Is it possible these two can work together?

Goilala District well before any other church group came and Catholic has a following much larger than any other denomination in Goilala.

Catholic Church has its presence in literally all four corners of Goilala. Place where the government falls short to have its presence felt, the Catholic Church has its presence there. Remote it may be. Mountainous and very rugged the place and terrain may be. Catholic Church is there. Where no one wants to till the land, build a…

Since the first exploration was conducted almost 35 years ago in the Goilala region, the Tolukuma Gold Mine (TGM) has had five separate owners.  Newmont Australia Ltd (1983 to 1993), Dome Resources (1993 to 1999), Durban Roodepoort Deep (1999 to 2006), Emperor Mines (2006-2008), and finally the current owners being Petromin Holdings, who is said to have purchased TGM for 1 kina from Emperor in 2008 on the rumored condition that all environmental legal liabilities were not pursued.  Remember, Petromin was created as a private entity, owned 100% by the state, by the previous Somare-led Government.

Since the Petromin take over, TGM has like any mine in a remote location, had its fair shares of ups and downs. But media issues seem to only touch on some real hard facts that several…

Goilala MP to hold talks over priest’s murder – Post Courier

Goilala MP Daniel Mona will fly into Tapini station today for a possible intercession with the mediation team on the ground in relation to the murder of a catholic priest earlier this month in Goilala.

Central police taskforce team who were assigned to the operation scene in Guarai LLG (Kunimeipa) had made it possible for the mediation after arresting previous murder suspects in relation to payback killings.

The late priest Fr Jerry Mario from Givene village of the Guari LLG served as a catholic priest for the Kamulai Mission until his untimely death on May 24, 2014, when he was shot dead at close range. He was a victim of the payback killing that has been continuing over the years.

The police personnel were flown into the station by chopper yesterday with previous murder suspects who were arrested along with their confiscated firearms, bows and arrows.

The police personnel said through the mediation, the suspects in the killing of the late priest will be handed over to the police after they had difficulty in rounding up the suspects in the rugged terrain.

Mr Mona applauded the police operation over the last two weeks and said the mediation will be a possible approach to handing over the suspects and also putting an end to the ongoing payback killings.

Goilala Settlers Demand Justice – EMTV

Published on May 23, 2014

It is a week after the clash between the Wabags and Goilalas at Vadavada settlement in the Nation’s capital and tension is still high.


The Main stream media keeps bluffing and painting a wrong picture. Without properly investigating the facts behind the whole situation.

Post Courier and The National, your reporters needs go sit down with the people, ask direct questions and then go to print.

Why get one sided stories and run to print?

Obviously you people know BAD NEWS SALES like HOT CAKES, but you dealing with a human being. Treat them like Humans.
