LLGSIP FUNDS USAGE ABSENT IN GOILALA – LLG

LLGSIP FUNDS DISTRIBUTION IN GOILALA.

LLGSIP stands for Local Level Government Service Improvement Projects.

Just like DSIP, every year each LLG gets its allocation (termed as LLGSIP) from the National Government.

It was K500,000.00 until Peter Oneil and Co decided to trim that down to K100,000.00.

On top of the K100,000.00 LLGSIP, Provincial Government also give LLG Administration grants which falls within the vicinity of K250,000.00 yearly. There might be more funding available and is at the LLG Presidents and their Councillors disposal but I’d settle with this two funding components for now.

Now, the crux of this article dwells squarely on the usage of this LLGSIP funds and LLG Admin grants.

Generally speaking this funds aren’t big enough so to speak. And as such, LLG President and their councilors wouldn’t be of much help if they are to use this to initiate major impact projects in the LLGs.

However, what would matter and will be of interest to the public is, regardless of how big or how small these funds may be, are these funds been used transparently with accountability a guiding indicator.

Being from Woitape LLG, I’d like to ask Woitape LLG President Honorable Joe Geru to highlight some of the useful projects he has sanctioned or funded during his time.

Maybe as counter funding to what Open MP has done thus far or as a seed capital to some geniune community based project.

While I am been hard on my Woitape LLG President, I’d expect the same to be asked of Tapini LLG President, Honorable Keleto Kope and also Guari LLG President Honorable Patrick Bauai.

what have you done with your LLGSIP funds and the LLG Admin grants to date?

Speak Now and enlighten the masses because we don’t want to vote back into power same old lost headless confused individuals who knows nothing except “spending formula”.

Father Jules Dubuy pioneered and established Ononge Parish dedicated to the patroness St Joan of Arc. Built the station with local timber produced by a Hydro powered Saw Mill.
He evangelized the people using a Solar powered Slide Projector around the 1920’s on wards, which is still there today.

He prefabricated a steel Cross which roughly weighed 1 ton when assembled. This mighty Cross stands on the summit of Mt Albert Edward as a landmark commemorating 25th Anniversary of the establishment of Ononge in 1937, and shall be reaching 80th Anniversary in 2017. There are so much he did and if only the Ononge people kept up with the progress from then on till now you all could imagine where would they be.

Once established, it will save the people of Woitape LLG 4 days of continous walking from home into Port Moresby.  4 days back home from Port Moresby.

Another major benefit to the Woitape LLG people would be the breaking open of the “vegetable flood gates” into Port Moresby.

Veitapu Valley has heacters of fertile land laying idle. Coffee from this valley is organic and tourism potential offered by Mt Albert Edward is enormous.

Only time will tell. But one thing at a time, let the Ground Breaking Ceremony take place. To signify the start of a new era for Woitape LLG people.

Words By Father Charles Kape – Brief History and Background on Father Jules Dubuy.

He established Ononge in 1912. Had a great influence on the people of Lower Vetapu. In 1994-1997 people kept mentioning his name.

In the three Years I was there I learnt why even he was dead decades earlier his name kept ringing on

Among many things I would like like to mention a few things that comes to my mind.
He pioneered and established Ononge Parish dedicated to the patroness St Joan of Arc. Built the station with local timber produced by a Hydro powered Saw Mill.
He evangelized the people using a Solar powered Slide Projector around the 1920’s on wards, which is still there today.

He prefabricated a steel Cross which roughly weighed 1 ton when assembled. This mighty Cross stands on the summit of Mt Albert Edward as a landmark commemorating 25th Anniversary of the establishment of Ononge in 1937, and shall be reaching 80th Anniversary in 2017. There are so much he did and if only the Ononge people kept up with the progress from then on till now you all could imagine where would they be.

Fr. Jules Dubuy deserves to be honored with the plan of renaming the track to Highway after the mighty man

Apart from his missionary priesthood works, he realized Goilala been a rugged terrain needed some form of transport.

At his disposal obviously where horses.

He also realized the bulk of Goilala’s population inhabited the Upper and Lower Veitapu areas (in Woitape LLG).

To Father Jules Dubuy, the shortest route to reach Ononge Mission station was via Kuriva.

Hence this horse Track was built and named after himself – Dubuy Track .

Fast Forward to 19th February 2016, with Honorable William Samb at the helm of Goilala’s political seat, Dubuy Track will be renamed to Dubuy Highway.

Goilalas in Port Moresby, if you have a day to spare, be part of History in the making.

Father Jules Dubuy – May Your Soul Rest in Eternal Peace. You showed us the way in both worlds – Spiritual and Physical.

GOILALA DISTRICT SIGNS MOA WITH MANOLOS AVIATION – FLYING CLINIC.

On Friday, 12th February 2016, Goilala District Development Authority signed a one-year MOA with MANOLOS Aviation.

This MOA is primarily a “FLYING CLINIC.”

MOA - Manolos Aviation
Honourable William Samb [right on your screen], with Manolos Aviation owner and Manager Mr Jurgen [centre] with Goilala District CEO Mr Titus Girau [far left on your screen] showing off the signed MOA papers.

This is more of a medivac arrangement which is on standby to assist with any “medical emergency” situations faced all across Goilala District.

However, on top of this agreement, Goilala DDA can utilise this services to airlift school supplies, medical supplies, teachers, exam papers and any other projects the DDA has/will approve (ed) in Goilala.

This MOA with Manolos Aviation has triggered another benefit for Goilala female students.

Mostly Grade 12 students who have the desire to persue careers in the Aviation industry, Manolos Aviation has a attractive package for you.

This is how attractive this package is. Goilala DDA only identifies and selects a female student and surrenders to Manolos Aviation.

Manolos Aviation takes care of your school feels, rental accommodation, fortnightly pay (which will increase yearly – 4 year course).

Flying Clinic service is a first of its kind in Central Province.

And Goilala District under the guidance of Honorable William Samb is the first to tap in to that service.

Especially mother’s who will experience difficulties during labour, Manolos Aviation is only a phone call away.

And with the VSAT project roll out, Goilalas future leaders will be taken care of during birth.
