Going by GDDF commentary, Candidate Bruce Mamando and his Team is preparing for the visit of Rt Honorable Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea and PNC Party Leader Mr. PETER ONEIL to Goilala District in the weeks ahead.
The dates of this visit, if confirmed, will be made public for everyone’s information.
Just like every political party leader, Hon Peter Oneil has the duty to give his moral support to his party endorsed candidates. And he does that here in support of Bruce.
Now the issue of concern. I see two issues arising out of this. Can Team Bruce Mamando make that known to the Goilala people? Dates, venues and maybe programs involved.
Peter Oneil while its Election year, and him been doing the campaign for his candidate, is still the PRIME MINISTER of PNG. The respect accorded to him does not change at all and must be maintained.
The second issue is the opportunity for Goilala people to ask the Prime Minister about the  promised K10mil funding for Tapini Highway and the also  promised TGM – Bako Road works funding he committed during the BY ELECTION campaign at TGM in support of John Mona who back then contested under PNC Party. PNC since then has dropped John Mona and gone with Bruce Mamando in the NGE2017.
Lastly, if given the opportunity, Goilala people can also enquire of SOUTHWEST AIR will continue to service Goilala to provide air transport after 2017NGE going forward or South West Airlines Twin Otter airplanes currently used by Team Bruce is just here for the campaign period.
Information is unconfirmed at this stage. Once confirmed, more updates on the trip will be posted on our District Blog for all to see.

NGE2017 COUNTING TO BE HELD IN TAPINI BUT NOT IN THE HIGH SCHOOL – FR. BRIAN CAHILL.
Sacred Heart HS is unable to provide the facility for use during the forthcoming election.
Our school will be operating one week into the voting period.
Diocesan and Education Dep policy requires us to maintain a distance and neutrality to the elections.
The school has been used and abused in the past providing for Government functions with the promise of payments that are never made.
The school will be in lock down mode during the mid-year break for students and staff to have a well-deserved break – school administration does not want to be burdened with hosting election activity.
The District Admin has an empty building at the top end of the station.
My advice to the electoral team: get yourselves a gen set for power, dig yourselves some pit toilets, organize accommodation in the empty government houses on the station. Work with the CEO, Titus Girau.
Most importantly do something about the road. Good luck.
If this is too hard for you I suggest you do the counting at Goldie Barracks as per the last four elections.”
Fr Brian Cahill.
CAMPAIGN ROUNDUP AFTER THE SECOND WEEK OF CAMPAIGN – 2017 GOI OPEN.
28th APRIL – 23rd June 2017.
We are in MAY 10th 2017. We got 5 more weeks left to campaign.
The Tapini Highway has been one major hiccup to the flow of candidates to and from Goilala, esp. Tapini and Guari LLG.
In the past Elections, candidates would normally drive up to Tapini station make their entry known to the locals there and then branch out to various LLGs.
With the Highway in shatters and unpassable, not open to traffic, most of Tapini and Guari LLG candidates are stuck in Port Moresby.
Woitape LLG candidates are slowly flying in to kick-start their campaign.
Henry Ivoro was the only candidate who has been in TGM. Henry Ivoro has flown back into Port Moresby yesterday and will fly back into TGM next week.
Candidate Ivoro will then move into Udaba valley to continue his campaign. He seems to have completed the Auga Dilava valley.
Airborne Logistics has ceased servicing Kodige so Matilda Koma will fly into Fane and make her way into Dilava area. Candidate Michael Tosip will fly into Fane has well and slowly makes his way around Auga Dilava and head towards Lower and Upper Veitapu.
William Samb Team after returning from Ononge and according to Jimmy Gulolo, they just completed the Chirime valley campaign leg.
They flew into Kumunga and walked through Yongai and into Kafano to fly out on Monday.
Bruce Mamando with Felix Gitai and Alex Hoem Robert has teamed up to address the Highway dilemma together.
According to postings on Facebook, there seem to be some progress but if the bad sections are cleared for usage, it something these candidates and their supporters on the ground will advise.
Peter Nomai is said to be already in Tapini station. Henry Kita was the first candidate to reach Tapini after nomination closed and he has been there for 2weeks now.
Apart from the mentioned candidates, it seems most of our Goilala Open candidates are still stuck in Port Moresby.
And we are in week Two of the campaign period. About 3/4 of the 30 candidates are still stuck in Port Moresby for various reasons.
