PEOPLE POWER SHOULD ONLY BE BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE – GARY JUFFA


PEOPLE POWER SHOULD ONLY BE BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE - GARY JUFFA

This may come as some surprise to some…others will agree and others will be outraged…nevertheless…it must be said…

In protests, remember, not everyone leading from the front has the interest of the country or people at heart…the peoples interest can best be represented by a true peoples champion whose interests are selfless and who is not driven by the promise of payment other then the good of his people…often times, the people are shepherded by clever shepherds who have sold their effort for a fee and are seeking outcomes that are very much in contrast to the interest of the people…this is why many protests and acts of dissent fail..

Successful revolution comes from the people, by the people for the people…a classic example is the effort put by the people in the issue on violence against women…everyone came because they cared and they were motivated by an effort for the people…this assured success…money and politics and any other motive, will ensure ultimate failure….that is one reason why many protests that are non genuine are destined to fail…because the purpose has been contaminated by ulterior and sinister motives…in such situations…genuine dissenters pay the price… ask yourself this.. “Would this person fight for the country if he were in parliament? Or would he sell it..?” Tell tale signs will be evident…for instance the money they have available…the resources…cars and so forth…there you will find the answer as to his genuineness..

True revolutionaries must be vigilant and do not be swayed or easily misled…do not be a blind sheep that is herded by shepherds whose intention is to sell your wool and flesh…

Even revolutions are now packaged and sold as commodities by those who wish to earn a buck and bought by those who wish to earn more…

The true revolutionary must be willing to die for his cause… he must be focused and be able to discern from what is genuine and not and act accordingly…

“PETROMIN HOLDINGS DOES NOT HAVE ANY MINNING EXPERIENCE” – PM Peter Oneil


On Monday morning, 23rd June 2014 at 10:30am, Papua New Guinea Honorable Prime Minister Peter Oneil and his key ministers were scheduled for an hour of airtime on the local radio station Talkback Show – FM 100.

The main agenda for this high powered team making a booking on FM 100s Talkback Show was primarily the PARAGATE SAGA and TASKFORCE SWEEP recommendations to Police Commissioner of Papua New Guinea and the subsequent events that unfolded since that letter.

A copy of that letter made it out to the Mainstream and Social Media which then got everyone talking.

The seasoned Radio host Mr. Roger Hau’ofa after the introductions opened up the lines to let the public in on the Show so they can ask questions to get feed back from these high powered team of Ministers, Governors and the Prime Minister.

The very first call that came in was from GOILALA. Precisely from Tolukuma Gold Mine.

The name of the caller is Mr PAUL BODI.

SAM KOIM ACTIVELY GET INVOLVED IN PNG’s POLITICAL LIFE – PM Peter Oneil.


SAM KOIM ACTIVELY GET INVOLVED IN PNG's POLITICAL LIFE - PM Peter Oneil.

The former Head of Task Force Sweep is in Australia actively trying to undermine our national interest, Prime Minister Peter O’Neill said today. The Prime Minister said it is now very clear Koim is actively trying to be involved in the political life of the nation.

“Any pretence of Mr Koim being independent has evaporated – he is playing politics – and undermining our nation, and our people,” Mr O’Neill said after Koim flew to Australia and went on the media urging the Australian Government to cut aid to PNG.

“He is blatantly trying to get the Australian Government to suspend the billion kina plus development assistance program with Papua New Guinea and that means he wants a stop to health and education programs, the redevelopment of Lae Hospital, major community works on Manus, and other projects that benefits the people of the nation.

“He does not care what damage his actions will cause to our people. “And it is disgraceful that he is trying to get Australian politicians to interfere in issues that are the business of Papua New Guinea, its parliament, its legal system and its people.

“His media comments have been reckless, wrong, and damaging to the national interest in the worst possible way.” Koim’s behaviour could be contrary to his employment condition as a public servant in the Department of Justice and Attorney General.

I WAS IN AUSTRALIA TO CORRECT WRONG IMPRESSIONS. SAM KOIM


I WAS IN AUSTRALIA TO CORRECT WRONG IMPRESSIONS. SAM KOIM

I traveled to Australia at the invitation of Transparency International whose global leaders were also in Australia at around that time for the G20 Anti-Corruption meetings, to explain the domestic situation in PNG.

The impression the outside (international) community got was that what is happening in PNG is a domestic political situation as it was painted by our leaders. Our leaders have branded law enforcement agencies like the courts, police etc as “politically compromised” as reported in international media including ABC. That sends a wrong message to the international community and clearly undermines all the genuine efforts of all hardworking Papua New Guineans manning those institutions. It also portrays an image that the institutions of government, particularly law enforcement agencies had been and can be politically compromised hence creates doubts in the minds of the people in the international community.

My reason for going to Australia therefore was to clarify the domestic situation in PNG. As people holding responsible position, we have to continuously demonstrate confidence in our institutions when we make public statements and representations, even when it doesn’t suit us.

We have fought hard to uphold the rule of law without fear or favour. The Government of the day can go as low as they want to and remove all they want from us. But we will never allow them to maliciously discredit our institutions’ reputations or our individual reputations. I have seen good men and women standing up for this cause and I am duty-bound to protect them, even as a private citizen.

I wanted the rest of the world to know that we did not initiate and pursue a political agenda. We refuse to be seen or called political stooges. We sought to uphold the rule of law in ensuring that all persons are seen to be equal before the one and the same law. That has been and will be our cause.

INVESTIGATION TASK-FORCE SWEEP IS INDEPENDENT: SAM BASIL – PRESS STATEMENT – DOL SAM BASIL


INVESTIGATION TASK-FORCE SWEEP IS INDEPENDENT: SAM BASIL - PRESS STATEMENT - DOL SAM BASIL

23rd June, 2014

The Deputy Opposition Leader and Member for Bulolo, Sam Basil said that he has nothing to hide over the Prime Ministers allegations that he was collaborating with the Chairman of ITFS, Mr. Sam Koim.

I was the Minister responsible for ITFS from August 2011 until June 2012 in case Hon Peter O’Neill forgot. As Minister responsible, I have met with the Chairman on number of occasions. ITFS had an office beside my office at Department of National Planning, when it was established to commence investigations. I don’t see any impropriety in these meetings and how those meetings would influence ITFS independent investigations.

After the new Government was installed, the ITFS was reporting to the Minister for Justice and Attorney General and to him through NEC. I want to state that ITFS and Mr. Sam Koim hold public office and anybody can call or visit him and the team at their office to lay complaints or to follow up.

“I am surprised that the Prime Minister had very possessive expectations of the ITFS as it is now portrayed. It appears the Prime Minister had vested all his trust and confidence in ITFS however, as he is now under investigation, he is conveniently turning around to accuse everyone including the Police, courts and ITFS and I see that these are reckless statements from a desperate man.”

As responsible leader and head of our Government, he must stop the decoy and diversion and attend to the interview that he has been formally and politely asked to attend to. Hon Peter O’Neill must not think that Papua New Guineans are stupid and gullible and continue to divert attention and focus away from himself.

“The more diversion and delays tactics the Prime Minister creates, the more he will sink like in a quicksand and I have warned earlier last week that he must act appropriately by respecting the rule of law and hand himself for questioning.”

All lies and tricks of diverting attention has been exhausted and further attempts of resistance will see more damage done to this country.

“It would rather be good to be known in life as a honest sinner than as a lying hypocrite and now it seems Hon Peter O’Neill will go down in history as the lying hypocrite”

For the Prime Ministers notice, I spend most of my time in my District and Province since being in the Opposition and ITFS is an entity that has always been respected and his allegations against me is nothing more than a smokescreen.
