Projects unveiled for Lagaip-Porgera
A NUMBER of projects unveiled by Lagaip-Porgera MP Philip Kikala will bring change to the district in Enga province, which is lagging behind others due to tribal fights.
Projects amounting to K13 million were unveiled in Laiagam by Mr Kikala and Works, Transport and Civil Aviation Minister Don Polye, who is also deputy leader of National Alliance party.
A five-year development plan for 2008 to 2012 was also launched and new vehicles worth K1.1 million were distributed to various divisions like health, education, police and district administration.
The projects included the construction of a mini hydro costing K7 million, rehabilitation of the run-down Laiagam jail costing K2.5 million and the reviving of the pyrethrum industry in the electorate at the cost of K2.5 million.
Mr Kikala said with unusually high revenue coming into the Government coffers because of commodity boom, now was the time to deliver and he urged his people to actively participate in the development of the district.
Mr Polye also revealed to the people that under stage two of the Wabag –Laiagam road maintenance, he would allocate another K27 million for the sealing.
He said that he would also allocate K42 million for Laiagam to Porgera road upgrading and sealing and another K25 million for Laiagam to Kandep road sealing under stage two of the road project.
He said funding for the projects would come from the K3.2 billion funding the Government would be getting from the Asian Development Bank.
Mr Polye told the people that under the Somare-Temu Government they would see some major changes in their electorates.

Mr. Kikala has done fine with the development plans and securing of such huge sum of funds.

One misconception is that such things can be done by any elected member in his and/or above his capacity as an individual and member from laigaim-porgera electorate.

The challenge is to practically bring these projects down on ground and operational with social and economi equities.

I hope that cuts out the assumption of him chasing after government cheques and chewing up vulupindi haus.
