Covid-19 is having a remarkable impact all over the world as it exposes the ideological and structural shortcomings of government and corporate entities.
In the USA and Britain, the bumbling incompetence of their leaders is shown in the disastrous statistics related to rates of infection and deaths from the virus.

2 weeks ago it was revealed on Facebook that Deputy PM Davis Steven was sacked as DPM and Attorney General. Steven had had a very long standing feud with the Chief Secretary. If PNG remembers, this was why he resigned from his ministry last year and a few days later he joined Marape to dump O'Neill because Lupari was O'Neill's boy.
Lupari facilitated for O'Neill (and for himself) millions and millions of Kina in stealing. Remember the time during APEC he paid one hire car company he is linked to several small payments of K50,000 each in one day until it totalled K3 million? Or when he asked ExxonMobil for a success fee of K100 million if Pynyang was approved?
