Namah critics warned to provide facts
PNG Party President Robert Akunaii last night shored up support for his Party Leader Belden Namah by warning critics to provide facts when making accusations.
He said that since the coalition partners began pushing their anti-corruption agenda, people have publicly attacked Prime Minister Peter O’Neill, his deputy Namah, ministers and members of government.
He said the current leadership is very concerned that Papua New Guineans are coming out in the media, on social networking sites and in public to accuse the O’Neill-Namah Government with false claims and unfounded allegations.
“We all have our freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution to speak. However, we must be mindful of what we say against our leaders,” Mr Akunai said.
“Many of the allegations against Messrs O’Neill and Namah and their ministers are unfounded in nature. They are totally false.
“They seriously border on defamation of character. I call on all serious thinking Papua New Guineans to stop this mischievous nonsense.”
He said a recent case involved allegations that Mr Namah was interfering in the Ministry of Defence and in the recent military coup.
He said Mr Namah was acting Defence Minister and was responsible for putting down the uprising led by retired Colonel Yaura Sasa and a small band of renegade soldiers, who have since been offered amnesty by the Government.
Mr Akunai said: “If it was not for Mr Namah’s personal sacrifice to put his life at great risk again for the love of this country, the recent coup attempt would have gone out of hand with potential for loss of lives, including lives of innocent women and children.”
“Those perpetrating downright lies and unfounded claims against Prime Minister and his deputy should be wary of their illegal, unsocial and ill-conceived actions,” he warned.
He urged genuine Papua New Guineans not to be associated or be misled and fooled by people with sinister and vested interests.
He said both leaders have demonstrated that they have the interests of Papua New Guineans at heart by their commitment to fight corruption, pay for free education, free medicare and establish the sovereign Welfare Fund.
He said both men also showed their commitment to women in PNG by trying their very best to have the Gender and Equality Bill passed in the last sitting of Parliament.
Mr Akunai said both leaders are visible in public from the many commitments, conferences and meetings they attend and that anyone with a question to ask them should do so in a public forum rather than hiding behind a computer screen and spreading lies.
