Ipatas and Polye Must Talk
This is an open letter to two of Enga's notable leaders, Mr. Peter Ipatas and Mr. Don Polye. PNG's top job for the next 5 years is in your hands. It seems to be the silent public opinion that the 'haus-man' is divided. PNG is now looking up to you two and the least we expect is personal political differences to get in the way. As fine sons of Enga and PNG as a whole, you must not let politics hinder the people's desire for a better government. The tide is hitting your way and you need to have a private dialogue and make a clear stand in the coming elections. That stand has to be declared now. If the 'Akalyanda' is divided, the chances of an Engan being a Prime Minister probably for the next ten years or so is unlikely. When coincidental circumstances have favoured the Engan leaders for a likely outcome in the next elections, we should make the appropriate adjustments to allow for what has to happen.
A united Enga towards the course is a better approach. Regardless of differences, Ipatas and Polye must know that the lives of 6.6 million Papua New Guineans are at stake. With deteriorating public infrastructure and services and increasing rates of socio-economic problems, PNG needs a different version of strategic leadership that can make a u-turn and lead the country to prosperity. If Ipatas and Polye think they have what it takes, a united stand is a prerequisite. In spite of the bad media coverage, the rest of PNG is seeing the recent developments and concluding that surely, Engans do have something to offer. The only saddening part of this all is that people are saying Engan politics will have an upper hand and spoil the good course.
If only Ipatas and Polye can hold their hands together as brothers towards leading this dynamic nation of Papua New Guinea, Enga will make history in offering one its own as Prime Ministers. The people of Enga will be 100% behind you in your pursuit, so will the rest of the nation who are crying for a change. PNG sees a powerful combination of leadership if only you twos can make a united stand.

Ipatas makes a good governor - this position and career suitably fits him untill he gracefully retires, dont think of growing him wings yet.
As for Don Polye, he is merely a yardstick stationed to plumate and extend NAs chances of returning to power. He is steered by Arthur and Patrick, authorizing him where to go and what to say in the highlands region - he does not make a decisive leadership - all his public appeals are begging people to vote NA again. A real nut.
Sam Abal was tipped to ripple some shock waves, smart NA also tamed him and now it seems that Enga, like Simbu in the last election, will become a stronghold of NA in 2007. Meaning, Enga cannot wrestle for the Prime Ministers post!

This is the problem with your folks up in the highlands. Unless they stop voting along party lines, you will continue to have poor choices of candidates to represent you in parliament.

NA's last minute ploy and tactics to hold onto power will fall flat on their face.
Patrick and Arthur are kids on the bloke. They can fool some people but not all the people all the time. We will gladly take your last minute "goodies" but that is not a reflextion of of a change of heart.
PNG doesn't need kids with corrupt heads who are hell bent on sponsoring foreigners to plunder its manifold resources

Even if NA remains in parliament, Patrick and mini Somare are off the list and thatís definite. Such young, controversial leaders who do not have the political charisma, yet abuse sheer power to gain self-interest are not the kind that PNG needs to have, when we desperately need a different turn in leadership. They think they are being the master-minds but just wait and see how the developments turn out, leading towards the elections, and the results thereafter. there is a saying that you will never understand the mind of an Arab. While he is talking to you, a thousand other things are going on in his mind.

Polye and the big mud pit
|May 17 2007, 8:40 PM |
The blind Ipatas/Polye supporters on pngscape, as usual, conveniently overlook the fact that their heros steal public money by funneling it through private business companies (Ipatas) or lick up to the PM of what is clearly becoming the most corrupt government in PNG history (Polye). Those talking about either as PM are obviously voting for more of the same, deeper and smellier.
Polye can't even keep his own house in order, despite being in government and thus receiving considerable funds.... which maybe is going to buy votes????

Kandep fed up with the Deputy Prime Minister
I write in response to USK (Post-Courier May 15) I wish I knew where he lives or comes from. As a true Kandepen, I wonder if USK has seen the grief-stricken photograph last week on the front page of the Post-Courier of travellers pulling PMV trucks in the extremely bad road conditions in Kandep, the very electorate of the Deputy Prime Minister, whom he or she seemed to praise. We the people of Kandep have suffered in silence for many years without any proper services and are fed up withpeople like Deputy Prime Minister or cronies like USK to talk smart without knowing how the Kandepens or people in other remote areas are suffering from basic services like road maintenance, health and education.
USK, for your information, if you are not from the Kandep electorate then I want to tell you this, the Kandepens are fed up and are at loggerheads with the so-called Deputy Prime Minister because of his boasting and a lot of hot air that he speaks. We the people feel that we donít come from an electorate where the very elected member is the Transport Minister and deputy prime minister. USK, have you seen in media that the country is campaigning against NA to completely uproot it? We want to change this nation (by changing these selfish leaders) and bring tangible developments. So USK, stop making unsubstantiated comments.

POLYE HAS TO GO
|June 7 2007, 11:01 AM |
Dear all Kandepeans,
I am from Last Wert (Kanaka tasol), I supported one and only Sauk in the last election. Only because he has all the qualities of a leader that incoorperates traditional style of leadership, God fearing, wise and approachable. I am living far away but my heart is still with him.
Those people who supported Polye must be seeing some changes in Kandep, apart from the pocket money of course. I have never been there since 2002. I think the Engan elder talking about "Japan wokim car long karim man tasol mipela Enga karim Kar" is from Kandep.
Never mind I will never drive to Last Wert when Dong is still in power. I wil find other means.
I compare DON to Yuangtine koroba (former SHP primier), bilasim face wantaim mausgrass na mauswara tumas. I attended Wert Com school, kandep High School and only God knows where I will go next.
Vote for Jimson Sauk to finish off the good things he did before Don came on to the scene.
Polye's cronies may say things at me but let me remind you, I am bit better than you and Polye.
I will leave it here. It is up to the voters, Wert will always remain Last WERT.

Look at Don, a civil engineer by profession, yet awarding contracts worth K8,000,000.00 to cronies who have no equipment, knowledge and labour force to commence work which has no designs. Yet he sees fit to comment on contracts awarded by NCDC to global.
I believe all roads in kandep must have been resheeted or sealed. Why a lot of complaints when he has done alot for Kandep worth of 8 million kina?
Don hasn't got a business and yet he housed his wifes in hotels for 6 months paided for by friends. Who are this good friends who waste big money on housing dependents?
WHO IS IPATAS? HE IS AN EMBARASSMENT IF MADE PM... POLYE IS BETTER
|June 11 2007, 12:55 PM |
Am an outsider, both members are leaders by their own rights, but for Ipatas to be PM, my foot. PNG must have just run out of capable leaders.
Ipatas better come of his dream and establish a party that can win national elections. He has yet to establish a party with a winning combination and now wants the top job, I am sorry for the man.
Don Polye can be PM, he is in the winning combination but wrong team members.
Hope Polye can be PM.
Are they concumbines or wives
|June 11 2007, 1:16 PM |
Suppose all meri ya ol pren tasol ating em mas bilong ol haus lain. Concumbines for all.
Concumbines or concubines? Topic is Ipatas not fit for PM
|June 11 2007, 2:06 PM |
Poro Nim Kal,
Your post and thread does not make sense.
I am sure Ipatas has concubines and wives but not concumbines.
Must be a new word, or engalish, concumbines.
