We need change now. Old MP's should give way to up and coming young vibrant leaders. Old MP's should play the role of mentors. A true leader is known by how well he grooms up and coming leaders. Sinai Brown is old. Sir Jihn Kaputin is old. Come on guys. You won't be here forever. Groom new leaders. Let new young leaders contest.
We have a real problem in PNG about repeating terms over and over without having a clue about what they mean or how to explain them. This term "young vibrant leaders" is a great example of that. Someone picked the term out of some overseas article or something and now its repeated again and again in PNG without people being able to really explain it.
I too would like to know how these "young vibrant leaders" are going to bring us anything but inexperience and trying failed experiments yet again and watching them fail again. Young vibrant leaders are inexperienced and that's their biggest, sometimes fatal, problem!
Mate I quite agree with you but won't go with recycled MP's...I mean people that had their chance but failed their own people.I'd rather take "vibrant young leaders" description from another perspective as having the necessary skills and calibre of a leader but first timer in the political race.
You have not understood what I said. Yes young vibrant leaders on their own cannot do it. They need the wisdom of the past along with what they know now to make it work. What I am saying here is that PNG, let along ENBP lacks good political mentors. Where have you heard of ENBP Political leaders calling a joint meeting and inviting young people to participate and bring up ideas on a whole range of issues concening the province and PNG as a whole? Is there someone in power you know that has taken the time to mentor/educate/advice young leaders on the how to lead a public live?
AS A SAYING GOES, WE NEED THE WISDOM OF OUR FATHERS AND THE STRENGHT OF YOUNG BLOOD TO GO FORWARD.
WE NEED PEOPLE WHO CAN SAY, " WHAT CAN I DO FOR MY PROVINCE, NOT WHAT CAN MY PROVINCE DO FOR ME"
In PNG, people have the perception that lawers are the best lot of people to be in the parliament as they understand and can interpret well the laws of the land.Its no surprise that we have a bunch of them in the parliament who have been very vocal with legal issues that the country is faced with...The influnce they have on decision makings of the government they are with is a measuring tool and can be a test to their reputations as the legal brains of this country....Poping up are names of two lawers who will be contesting for the Gazelle Open.What do you Gazelle people think?...I mean people sometimes use their knowledge to abuse the power they have by manipulating the policies inplaced to suite their own personal gain...........................
The only thing the lawyers seem to be achieving right now is the passing of more and more laws to restrict our freedom. They are not using their knowledge and talents in a good way but in very bad ways.
Lawyers are not to be respected. They are mostly like snakes.
Read what Malakai has to say about his electorate.
We people of Gazelle are not fools.... This is an indication of an MP who does not understand his electorate and having a clear vision of service delivery and integral developments to his area.
Tabar: Health difficult area to address in Gazelle
The National, 01st May 2012
By ABIGAIL APINA
THE health sector in the Gazelle district, East New Britain province, is a difficult area to serve, Gazelle MP Malakai Tabar says.
He said the sector was given K1,358,500 in the 2012 Gazelle district budget but there was always a need to get updated reports on the respective health facilities in the districts.
Tabar said unlike the education sector where there were continuous inspections and reports submitted, the health facilities were under the provincial health divisions and did not have any regular inspection and reporting system.
He said while so much effort had been put into health in the district, there were still efforts to renovate the Vunapaka health centre, Malasaet clinic and a few rural health posts.
Tabar said maternal mortality and other health related problems continued to be the major concern in the district particularly in the remote communities.
He said there were problems with ensuring heavily populated communities got proper health services.
“Understanding the challenges of our district gives us the reason to do more work and to spread the limited resources to our pressing and priority areas.”
He said the 2011 census showed there were 105,671 people living in the district’s 3,700 square kilometres.
He said therefore the task of managing a diverse district would always be a challenge.
“It is important that we organise fairly to bring services to remote areas and positively affect the lives and activity of those rural people,” Tabar said.
I am not a fool, yu campaign manager belong Tabar or olsem wonem?
I believe the Gazelle has a larger land area than Rabaul and Kokopo Open but I don’t think it is a difficult area to serve. Tell me which area in the Gazelle is not connected by road? Mi no ting health em bikpela problem. You guys need to revive the cocoa industry, it’s dead as far as I am concern and start looking at a long term water supply system. One suggestion, pump water from Warangoi or Keravat to VDR, treat it and reticulate to Keravat, Burma, NCR, Rabau, Kokopo and low lying Toma areas.
Gazzelle and Rabaul should be proud of our two current members to be in the same party which makes things easier and that they have set up the foundation. Let Marat and Tabar back so they carry on. New leaders will give headache to many hoping people who still awaits success of the pending pledges. Maski ai pas.
Health area is "difficult to address"???????? Why doesn't this silly guy just come out and speak the truth. HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY ARE BEING STOLEN THAT ARE ALLOCATED TO HEALTH. That's why there's no progress. Let's be blunt.
Are you one of the NGI candidates?
Please don’t post your photo on the net. You need to hang it up on a tree so people can vote for you. Don’t know which part of NGI you’re contesting. It is late anyway, voting is in progress.
Tabar just got lost in the jungle.(Waigani) For 5 years he was lost and just when he started to discover the tracks, 5 yrs was up. Waigani na Parliment ino blo ples blo ol man lo go lus. Know the tracks, yu won't be lost. Het blo tok. Yupla yet skelim.
The majority of pollies in developed countries are lawyers by profession. After all, politicians are supposed to be making laws that promote development and hard work, not spoon feeding the people, handing out money, and "bringing development" that later collapses.
But it's been how many years since independence now and we still don't seem to get it.
black in the middle, black outside????? If you don’t know PNG is NOT a developed country. We don’t need lawyers, we need honest people. Lawyers are professional liars. I thought we had two PM, two judges etc before the election??. Job well done by these so called lawyers
Kurice natuna, whatever you are?- either a celestial being or just a silly fellow country man/woman/animal? I first of all want to ask you a question- are you not one of those regular two kina's that hang around tokua everyday for some clients flying in from other centres??? And besides don't hate on kubak because his air of sophisticated arrogance is too much for you to handle, unlike you, I believed in Kubak for years, your the biatche that endorsed tabar and now look where your at, before you try to show to the world that- your advanced I'd like you to come down back to earth and rethink what really makes you think that you know what's best for our electorate. Now I know for sure your one of those slutty lowlifes who's denied your humbled beggings, its alright, I know your the biatche who used to sell cooked rice and salt fish at kokopo market underneath the shed,,,,so before you show off,, I ask you to save it, coz I really don't care about a wanna be tolai like you,,
Mr png oreo for life, thanks for abusive comment. Don’t know where in my previous comment I abused you. You asked me who/what am I? My last name is ToKuraip, you can give any first name if you want. Maybe used one of the names you gave me in your comment, like silly fellow, two kina, biatche, slutty lowlifes, rice seller, wanabe tolai etc. To answer you other question, I don’t hang around at Tokua, I don’t know what you mean cos I never see people hanging around at the airport every time I come in from my break.
Now let me explain why I reconsider voting my bro NK. Since NK started contesting for the Gazelle Open we have always voted for him only to lose to Sina, Tarbar and Konga. The consequences of that are, we are always last on the development priority list. Take a drive up my village and have a look mate. My village sits at the border between Rabaul Open and Gazelle Open. Needless to say I don’t give a rats *** about who wins the election.
You have a mother, aunty and sisters do you? Well the lastly, you comment about selling cooked rice and salt fish at Kokopo market is very low and an insult to our mothers and sisters.
That’s good, next time you need to think before putting thrash on this forum. We’ll just hope that NK wins. I have had lots of beers with his old man anyway and I am sorry if I have offended anyone.
oh my please do excuse me for my unnacceptable rambling, I still forget that I am Papua New Guinean no matter what, in particular tolai,,, despite my father being highlander, and I realised that I need to humble myself,,, because as a tolai I forget that no matter where ever we come from we always get along,, I am truly sorry, the mistake is that I aired my frustration at the wrong topic, for nothing at innocent people.... Marum
I've lived in Tolai country you DON'T get along. Instead of tribal fights you have drunken brawls. Constant drinking and fighting, that's the tolai way. So don't give me that crap that you're so peace loving and able to solve your problems. You've only shifted your violence to a level where it's less organised but the violence is still there.
