Put an end to this segregation and stop claiming who is the best. Let us measure each politicians performance against the output results. If our wia people work it out, non of the politicians have achieve sustainable,rewarding, benefits to the people of Yangoru Saussia.I had to walk from Numbohu to Negrie for primary education and then to Yangoru High school and was a year ahead of the current MP, Honourable P.Wararu. To this very point in time we see, hear words submerging like seasonal Mushrooms ( HUANHIA).It will be here and gone tomorrow. So my good people present the goals and target of what we want them to do and measure their output against what we want and not them elected MPs doing what they wanted. Failure to achieve them means the leader is a bleeder and not a leader. Vote them out in the ballot boxes and not crying over a share of cake.
Simeon Manihia's two sons working in the US. Also Engineers. They'll be sponsoring his election campaign. Both have set aside $US 10,000 each.
He also has alot of connections with the PDM party, since his CDP party are close aliance with PDM. That is the Former PDM, before Sir Mekere and the rest formed their new group.
He adressed a big gathering of Numbo Saussian Residents in Gerehu, Port Moresby in Mid January and assuring them of Sir Mekere's support for their CDP party. Also Earlier on in November, he addressd the Yangoru Saussian Students Association at UPNG. Other Prominant Yangoruans in Mosbi were there.
He is also close to Former Secretary of Finance, Thadius Kambanei. That is probably why Mr Kambanei won't stand, as was predicted.
Mr Manihia came 3rd in the last two elections, whilst Mr Dusava and Mr hagoria are playing with 1st and 2nd.
Notice how when Mr Manihia didn't stand for the recent Bi- election, The present member Peter Waranaka won the sit.
It has been said (theoretically) that Somare and NA, after ground work and research realsised Mr Manihia was a threat and decided to Bribe him a handsome some of funds to allow Mr Waranaka to collect Mr Manihia's Vote.
I happened to be at one of the Bi- election campaigns in Numboruan where I witnessed Mr Manihia hand over plans for Yangoru High School upgrade to Secondary School with boarding Facilities, to Mr Waranaka. He did a similar thing down in Kubalia High School.
Mr Manihia is very popular among the Assemblies of God church in PNG and Yangoru (East Sepik as a whole), being a stronghold for the AOG church seem to be backing Mr Manihia. That's where most of his votes are.
I gathered that Simeon Manihia is also implicated with Thadduess Kambanei in receiving payment from Nelson Wahune from the bogus claim of K4 million he (Wahune) received. I would not want to have a corrupt person as my MP. Anyone out there can clarify if this allegation is true?
Mr Manihia is the one who did the detailed design for the Passam Tuonumbe Road back in 1993.
Give it to him. We need guys like him with over 20 years practical experience in the engineering field, smart Buisness man and a guy with connections in all levels of Government.
Ol rot na infrastructure blo mipla i bagarap. There is a saying in Tok pisin, sopos igat fire, salim fireman i kam, sopos igat legal problem, salim lawyer kam. sopos rot na bridge i bagarap salim engineer ikam.
Is a Hydraulics (Water) Engineer by profession. He graduated with a Bechelor's degree in Civil Engineering from Unitech in 1980. However shear cleverness and brains allowed him to venture into structures, infrastructure and rural planning.
In 1981 He was employed by Australian based Willing and Partners in Madang. He later moved to the head branch in Port Moresby in 1985. In 1990 he became Managing director and share holder in the company. The company later in 2001 merged with Major Australian Based Engineering frim, Cardno Davies to become Cardno Willings, adding to a long list of other Cardno mergers such as Cardno Acil, Cardno Alexander etc.
He is currently the National Coordinator and Chief project Manager for the Department of Finance Nation Wide Housing Scheme in which they've made arrangments for Finance and Treasury (as well as IRC) employees to get housing loans from BSP bank (previously impossible).
As well as an engineering career, Mr Manihia is a smart buisnessman. From 1991 to 2001 he ran a chain of Service stations including Shell Gerehu, Manu Autoport (Shell), Hohola (Shell), Mobil 5 mile, Badilli Shell and Badilli BP. All this earning him a good reputation among the petrolium buisness community.
He contested the Yangoru Saussia seat first in 1997 and 2002, coming 3rd on both occasions.

Hey pipol blo Yangoru na especially Saussia
Harim gut. Here is a little insight i bet none of you Saussians know. Mr Manihia is originally from Kusambuk (Saussia) Side but his family a couple of decades back migrated to their Kwagwie (Yangoru) home where they are now.
This is way before the colonial masters drew up district borders. So in essence he is actually a Saussian.
Once again the fire is on as always during the Festival season of Election.The very people of Villages from Y2K have not seen any improvement in their Livelyhood, we have a system of politics that was adopted from the western world which is not suitable for our people.
When the season is over, all our WIA people will not see the the elected member, until the come around of the next season.PNG as a whole has a long way to go, before we see the light. Similar thing happened in Singapore, till LEE KUAN YEW decided to call the shots and now it has one of the highest Living Standard in the world.
Stop the bul****s and change the rule of the game.

Aren't elections meant to be democratic and of the voter's independent choice free from any undue influence and manipulation in casting his/her votes regardless of ethnic, kinship, tribal etc. affiliations?
That's a sign of a long way to go in realizing the meaning of democratic elections.
