The National Nwspaper: Monday, 18 August 2008
Agiru set on developing infrastructure in provincef
A BRIDGE building programme was launched last week in the Southern Highlands province under Governor Anderson Agiru’s plan to connect all the districts in the province by road.
The programme is worth K4 million and will be implemented over five years.
Mr Agiru said he believed an improved road network would enhance economic activities in the province and provide better access for people to market their produce.
“We will build good road networks and bridges in the next five years so that people have better excess to sell their garden produce and improve their livelihood.
“We will build more roads, bridges and other infrastructure. The province has gone backwards in the last 10 years and we have a lot of catching up to do,” Mr Agiru said at the launch.
However, he reiterated his earlier call to people in the province to “own these developments” coming into the province by refraining from unnecessary compensation demands and maintaining law and order at all times.
He asked the people to develop a sense of responsibility in looking after those public infrastructure and developers that come to invest and develop the province.
Mr Agiru announced the construction of steel girder bridges for Kapia and Kirapo rivers in the Pureni area in South Koroba.
Hornibrooks PNG Ltd has being contracted to build these bridges as well as six others at Pori, Lapea river in Margarima, Hulia, Piwa and Ayane rivers in Tari district.

Porgera Gold Mine and Enga Provincial Government

I have mentioned some aspect of the Tax Credit Scheme of the Progera Gold Mine. The enga provincial government is also allowed to comment on the determination of tax credit scheme programme.

the enga provincial government and the enga provincial administration are not performing is in regard to this issue is :
(a) the enga provincial government and the enga provincial government cannot develop a economic development plan for enga province. their non-performance is reflected in the ado-hoc operations they lead and also the ccurrent development stage of the project.

-any provincial government can fund free eduaction programme. this programme is supported mainly by the special support grant from porgera gold mine to the enga provincial government.

-any provincial government would have erected a centre such as ipatas centre. this centre is funded by the funds of the province; all engans own that building and strictly, it is wrong to call it a ipatas centre-which narrows the ownership notion but, at large, it is not owed by peter ipatas. the fund to erect that building did not come out from peter ipatas's own pocket money. but credit to him and his advisors, the idea was from them.

(b)because the enga provincial government and enga provincial administration cannot develop a enga economic development plan, the province operates on an ad-hoc basis. the enga provincial government and the enga provincial administration will not be able to effectively and efficiently conglomerate the projects of the district service improvement programmes (dsip), projects from the tax credit scheme (tcs), projects from the electorate funds (district support grant (dsg)), the special support grant (ssg) from porgera gold mine to epg, projects enga provincial government annual budget, projects from the national government under different sectors, projects from donor agencies.
if this aspect of the project funding mechanism is explored, you would be really ashamed to see such a very ulgy choatic array.

there is not economic development plan for enga that states all that i have mentions. there is thus, not clear alignment, cohension, intergrity, credibility and respect in this aspect of the province. the province is all over the place. the mandatory trust and electoratoral support of the people of the enga province is not being heard, prioritized by the enga provincial government, enga provincial administration.

where is the enga provincial government and enga provincial administration taking the people of enga to from five years now. (hope enga is not aken to a brothel for arse whip).

Enga Provincial Government and Special Support Grant

The enga provincial government, under the memorandum of understanding among the enga provincial government, independent state of papua new guinea, the landowners, and barrick/place dome porgera gold mine, receives about 2 per cent of the total support package called special support grant which amounts to about K5.0 million per annum. If you multiply K5.0 million by the number of years the porgera gold mine would in commerical operation; that is how much was given to enga provincial government.

frankly, you would hardly see any project been funded from this special support grant from porgera gold mine to the province. where doe the enga provincial government put all these funds to. i assum that ipatas centre, wrongly named, and the bsp building have been funded from the ssg. however, where is all the millions of kina which rightfully belong to the people of enga: the wapenanmadas, the wabag entrals, the laigams, the porgeras, the kandepans, koipiams, ambuns and the maramunis.

the national department of national planning and monitoring informed that about K25.0 million was released to the enga provncial government in special support grants mid-2007; please where the funds which rightfully belong to the people of enga.
