Southern Highlanders' cheap praises for MPs

October 30 2007 at 8:44 AM
Watchful eyes 

For the past 6 years, I have read extremely cheap comments on the newspapers where Southern Highlanders trying their best to convince each others on whom they support as their MP and leader or whatever...

The latest ones are on Pastor whoever from Mendi (MP).

Can you guys find better ways of arranging your terms, phrases and even make it look much intellectual than what it is? Some of the comments are senseless and out of propotion - childish, I should say. It is an eyesore reading cheap comments everyday. It's your right but your rights can damage your credibilities. Not everybody but esp, to those longlongs with fake names. Stop it!

Something I've never understood about SHPs

October 30 2007, 10:05 AM 

First, I've never understood how southern highlanders can so consistently vote for one corrupt leader after another. They kick out one corrupt, then replace them with another person almost guaranteed to become corrupt.

Secondly, I don't understand how southern highlanders have allowed literally billions of kina worth of NONrenewable resource wealth disappear forever, all to benefit the economic development of other countries, while you go around Hides or Kutubu, and you see virtually nothing that came out of all those billions.

Combining 1 and 2 above, I'm even more puzzled why southern highlanders are so laid back about the permanent loss of so much opportunity for development, especially since the oil resources are nothing like what they used to be in volume. That's why chevron pissed off PNG, they took the cream and left the rest to oilsearch.

If you live in Moresby, try and hang around the Mutual Rumana and that other building opposite Boroko Motors. All landowners will line up to collect their millions (Royalties). Literally, NOTHING goes back to the villages to benefit the people. Every toea is spent on Taxi hire, hotel room hire, prostitute hire and very interestingly, Pokies. Some stupid people I've ever seen in my entire life.

This has gone on for the last 15 years or so.

I doubt how these people will live after every resource runs out.

They will become gypsies after the money runs out. What a shortsighted attitude. And you know it's not the average landowners coming to Moresby, its all the spivs and conmen of the villages that have managed to trick all their wantoks and make off with all the money on their own. Very, very VERY sad. No wonder we're called primitive peoples, we have no understanding that those who are money rich are those who use money wisely.

All well said. I am a Souhern Highlander, but sadly, never benefited one bit from the oil spills. Royalties are enjoyed by Kutubus, Eraves, Komos, Taris and people who come from the Southeast and Western end of Murumbu. No tangible services from the governments are evident in the province, and I doubt it will ever happen while resources are fast declining. At least some of us struggled to survive through hardships and false accussations and labels as "Landowners" but rest of us will see how the true landowners survive when everything runs out. Keep firing those negative comments. We deserve them!

Brats,

These Landownewrs are flying high now but tomorrow they will flow low ya dont worry just keep an eye. We are still surviving not because the LO"s are there but because our God is rich and is Blessing us. If we can survive today with a kaukau and vegetalbes without and oil, we feel so satisfied than those with a roasted chicken infront of him for lunch, dinner and breakfast.


Kaukau and kumu still da best ya bro, forget those LO,s and just enjoy whatever is before you with thanksgiving to God.

Thats what the rest of our people at home are like and wer should become part of them so that we are part of suffering community in which we come from.

thanks

Not all Eraves are landowners. I think the same applies to Komos, Kutubus and Taris; don't know much about them. I am from the neighbouring landowner clans villages but I touch 'nothing' not even a single toea. I sweat my guts out for my family's bread and butter everyday while the next door enjoys the royalties and equities. Only time will tell the continuity of their current life.

If you need land royalty, you better ask Hame Yawari and he will provide everything for you.

Wheather you are a LO or not I believe as long as Im happy have a shelter over me is called basics. Unfortunately I have witnessed alot of these LO 's going off one by one because of those spinoffs. Lets not talk about them thats their blessings and there is always good and bad effects to these privlegesif we misuse or mismanage these blessings.

Iam a SH but I enjoy what God blessed me with and I feel content. Southern Higlanders are good people, dont talk about them leave them alot, there are some bad ones everywhere you go also. God bless you all

Oil royalty - a personnal account

November 3 2007, 9:53 PM 

I come from Erave and my clan is part beneficiary to the Gobe Oilfields. Like all other clans within the region that benefit from the oil royalties, my clan receives substantial cash couple of times a year. Unfortunately, I have not touched a bit of that money simply because of some very greedy individuals in Port Moresby stealing this money. I have heard when the money is taken, these thieves hang out at hotels or take trips to Australia, Singapore, Thailand, to name a few. I am in a well paid job and do not worry about the money they take, but the most unfortunate ones that miss out are people in the villages. Especially, when there is good number of people supporting the corrupt leaders, it is hard for the good and like minded people to come together and take the oil royalties back to the village people. As a result, there are lots in-house conflicts among themselves before the courts to determine the genuine beneficiaries. So not all LO's from the oil rich regions are enjoying the benefits, there must lots of us missing out on the royalties. There must be more than K5.00 million paid out to my clan since the project started but there is no tangible project developed by my clan and am still waiting to see one happen.

All those resource developers have given literally tens of millions of kina to Southern highlands Province. It's the responsibilty of all southern highlanders to demand, pressure, and otherwise make sure that these funds are dealt with transparently. Every southern highlander should know exactly how much money has been given to SHP by OilSearch, Hides Gas, etc and where that money went. Whether or not you get any royalties.

This is good work thanks for the sharing. It has been long known that some of these pollies plant letters favourable to themselves. Sadly, most PNGans can't see that, they believe everything they read!!!!!!!!!

Fact is that these SHP pollies steal money like you'd never believe.
