One of the majors problem we have in PNG is that 80% of the population lack formal education. Until the 80% is educated, the nation will learn who to vote into Parliament, the health and welfare of the nation will also improve if more than 90% of the population is educated.
Independent media should play a vital role to informally educating our people about all this corrupt practices.
A similar situation of what the Somare familly/Cronies/Selfish Parlamentarians running the country down happen in Antigua a small Caribbean Island nation for years. Everything in Antigua was under the control of the Bird family and its cronies, until the opposition open a new radio station and started educating it's people about the Bird family and its Cronies corrupt practises, the Bird empire fall during the election as a result of radio station educating its people.
I believe PNG could do the same through independent media. I suggest all NGO groups in PNG should pull their resources together and own a SW radio station to educate our people about all issues affecting our country.
An educated nation is a healthy nation.
