Its true what you said.
However, the fact is that there is not true leader representing the landowners, a central figure for that matter. The leadership is fragmented in dealing with the matter.
Landowners are forming associations, the ABG President taking the lead, the Landowner women association are expression their concerns of not being involved, the Mekamui's Mr. Une is making another stand and so forth.
There is no uniting person that can spear head the negotiations. Amid all this political termoil, there are scavengers raoming the island of Bouganville laying their hands on what ever they can to make huge profit before there is stability.
My personal views are that there should be a central figure now be aggressive and diplomatic in dealing with the matter.
