Powerful forces, those who make money off PNG through associations with Government officials and politicians, are at play again to get rid of populist Hon. James Marape as PM who has so far shown resistance to easy push-through by company prepared agreements.
What you read and hear may have another angle to it. The least honest concerned PNGeans must do is pray for truth and justice to prevail. Both overseas and local media, including sponsored social media pages, will run stories with underlying dynamics that run to break Marape government.

It is eight months since James Marape was given the position of Prime Minister by his Parliamentary colleagues following a tumultuous few months of politics.
Now only 250 days later we are in a position whereby there is outward revolt in the Cabinet, NEC meetings are being cancelled because there is no quorum, Ministers are refusing to be seen at public events with the Prime Minister and members of the public can see the general malaise of a Government in crisis.

His situation has come about due to a lack of capability as a Leader, having never had any executive management experience. This is made worse by more than 20 billion dollars in foreign investment having been lost as the Marape Government has been unable to reach agreement with investors.
I contested in 2017, and was interviewed by Pangu Party Executives to be endorsed as a candidate for the party. One question i remember being asked was..." yu kumul yah, you fly antap, why yu laik kam down lo graun na ron lo politics?"
I never got the party endorsement but it was clear to me,during the interview, that our most experienced political strategists,thinkers, and chess movers,in the game, still regard politics as a "popularity dirty game" and not something "Game Changers" doing well in education and professional career should waste their time doing.They were more interested in winning through popularity and gave less attention on positive impact of having the right winner.
Maprik MP John Simon has been cleared by a Leadership Tribunal, on all nine allegations of misconduct in office.
Mr. Simon was referred to the tribunal, by the Ombudsman Commission following a complaint from former Maprik MP Gabriel Kapris.
The allegations relate to the MP, engaging his own companies to work in the District and later getting paid for it.

There must be a human resource audit in the Enga Provincial Government public servants restructure. The public service machinery in Enga Province must be audited .
In most cases, several people are still unattached but still on payroll.
Some old people are now becoming ineffective due to age. They must be given a golden handshake to go home.
So many incompetent people are occupying public offices not on merits. They have no good qualifications for the job. The service delivery mechanism is spoilt by this guys because they dont know their duty statement.

Few rogue policemen think they are above the law and can do anything. This perception is immature and totally unacceptable.
Police officers are supposed to be well decipline in carry outing their responsibilities . Their responsibility is to enforce the law and order to maintain peace , security and harmony in our societies.
Sadly, it is a different story all together when it come to PNG police. Police bruality is common in our country. Our police luck ethical values and principles to understand the nature of their work.
For example, as you can see the picture above policemen with alcohol and ladies while wearing police uniforms. This is illegal. This is unethical. The government properties should not be use by government officials over time . They supposed to work within their schedule time and return the property back. I've seen many police officers using government vehicles as their own. They can drive anyway at anytime under the cost of government budget.
Bulolo MP and Minister for National Planning and Monitoring Sam Basil, has announced a plan to revive the Lutheran League of Members of Parliament soon.

In Part I, we discussed the rise of JM and fall of PO. This article discusses why PMJM appoints Kua and Kramer as State Ministers, both comes from opposition and didn't Vote Rt. Hon James Marape, 8th PM of PNG.
This is the second article relating to the first one written on PMJM, and this one tries to give reasons as to why Brian Krammer (BK) was appointed as Police Minister despite him not voting for JM to be PM on 30th May 2019.

This time last year all in PNG would not have dreamt that James Marape would be PM of PNG one year on. Peter O’Neill seemed rock solid and many other pronounced candidates were ahead of the political cue then Marape but what happened and out of the blue Marape runs past every politician including PO and becomes PM.
Whilst many will assume that many factors were at play, including the Hand of God and POs corruption rating to make Marape PM, no one has really studied James Marape to see if he is a beneficiary of an intricate and crafty political strategies that he set up to see his rise and the fall of his former boss.

In PNG we have so many illiterate political prostitutes and gullible people who don't comprehend themselves but so easily be fooled by others.
A strange scenario I observed over time was the CEO of the Country that is the Prime Minister's Post.
These same people continue to say that :
