Somare has done it again. He has once again shown the people of Papua New Guinea how corrupt he is. He has lost the plot completely. Children are dying of hunger, services are not reaching the people, students are dropping out with no other alternative in education, our schools are in dire need of funds, yet Somare sees fit to increase the number of ministries.

Papua New Guinea doesn't need new ministries. We already have enough as it is. Where are we going to get the money to pay for these new ministers? The taxpayers once again have to foot the bill, just like they had to foot the bill for the Moti inquiry. Somare seriously needs to be stopped. He is running this country as if it's his family business. He appoints his family members and associates to positions of influence while the majority of Papua New Guineans suffer.

We must realize that he is demonsrating attributes of a dictator. The Opposition is weak because they lack the numbers. The only way for PNG to turn around is for genuine Members of Parliament to use their conscience and vote against any such legislations.

Don't know how much corruption is going to take place before it all gets uncovered. Our only hope now, seems to be divine intervention. We claim to be a Christian country, but that image is long to be desired.

Over to you for your comments.
