There was no polling, says witness
By JAMES APA GUMUNO
A WITNESS told the National Court in Mt Hagen yesterday that there was no polling at Titip rest house in Kandep district on July 3 and 4 during the National Elections last year.
Witness Dii Apkas, called by petitioner Alfred Manase, told the court that on July 3 polling officials led by presiding officer Sakarias Kalo arrived at Titip rest house around 4.30 in the afternoon.
Apkas said the presiding officer insisted that they vote but the voters asked that polling delayed until the next day because it was very late.
He said all the voters agreed that Mr Kalo should keep ballot box #0059 and papers in his house.
Mr Apkas told the court that before the ballot boxes and papers were taken into Mr Kalo’s house, the presiding officer allegedly told the people that he brought 1041 ballot papers but he also took five extra ballot papers which added to 1046 for the polling officials to vote.
He said he learnt that around 5am the next day the ballot box and papers were taken to Tope village some 2.5km away from the Titip rest house and some people marked all the ballot papers in favour of Mr Polye. Mr Apkas said there was no polling that day as expected.
During cross-examination, Ray William, counsel for the Electoral Commission, asked if he saw people marking the ballot papers for Mr Polye and the witness replied that he stood some 40 metres away from his house and watched people marking the papers.
Mr Apkas said he could not go closer as some people shouted threats for people not to go near. He could not identify who shouted the threats.
Trial continues today into its fourth week. Petitioner Manase is challenging the election of Works, Transport, and Civil Aviation Minister Don Polye as Member for Kandep.

Kandepian Wane, your arguement shows that you don't even read news papers. See, Chicko is keeping us informed of all the latest...and that's what we call real evidence. We are argueing basing on facts and not on assumptions like what you are doing. Let me tell you Kandepian Wane that the strings will go tighter and tighter around you king's balls at the end of this legal betal and this will proof to you that Chicko is by all means right by saying your Don is a professional corn artist.

Cheers,

Ballot boxes were ‘hijacked’

A POLLING official for the Kandep Open electorate told the Court of Disputed Returns yesterday he saw a ballot box with ballot papers for one resthouse being swapped with another.
Gini Koko, a polling official assigned to cover the 2007 Kandep elections, said three ballot boxes had been hijacked by supporters of Don Polye and he was told not to follow the track where the boxes were taken.
Mr Koko told the court in Mt Hagen that voters from Kinduli, Laguni and Imapkaye resthouses told him not to follow the ballot boxes taken away allegedly by Mr Polye’s supporters.
He said despite the warning he went to Tirip rest house where ballot papers were allegedly ticked by presiding officers in favour of Mr Polye.
He said he was told by presiding officer Sakarias Kalo to go through the common roll for Tirip and identify names of males against females and leave the rest with him.
“While this was happening, I saw the ballot papers for Tirip were put on the side and ticked by a supporter of Mr Polye and signed by Mr Kalo,” he said.
He said he was not allowed to cross off the names of men and women he was asked to cross check, adding Mr Kalo wanted to do this himself.
He said this was happening inside Yasua Waro’s house and he also saw five other ballot boxes sitting there and all the presiding officers of those boxes.
Mr Koko said the boxes were for Tirip, Kanem, Tinili, Biapoli and Imapyaku.
Counsel for the petitioner Paul Mawa asked if the boxes were opened or closed. Mr Kokoe said all the boxes were opened when he went in.
He said the Imapyaku box was sitting idle while the others had their papers signed by the presiding officers.
“After that I saw someone pick up that box (Imapyaku) and there were unmarked ballot papers inside,” he said.
Mr Koko said after that a young man took the box outside of the house and he saw him tick the papers which were the presiding officers.
He identified the presiding officer as Luke Angat and as the Imapyaku papers were filled, they were then put into Andakoi’s box and taken away for counting.
He said out of the six ballot boxes, only five of them were filled and taken away while the Imapyaku box was left behind without any ballot papers in it.
In cross examination, lawyer assisting the respondent Paulus Dowa asked asked if the presiding officers, including Mr Koko, made any effort to register a complaint with the district returning officer of the hijack of ballot boxes,
Mr Koko said that they were busy at the time and did not register a complaint.

Wake Wane,
That is not a hard evidence, rather full of lies and fabrication by this witness so don't call it a hard evidence as yet.
And if you fail to succeed in tying up Don as you say, it might be tightly around your own weak balls which you might piss painfully.
By the way, if you don't know the truth, Kenneth Andrew was the one who initiated and hijacked these boxes which unfortunately he did not complete his mission but fled..
Don is a gifted leader and not a conartist like you say. Looks like you have not known Don yet even though some of you claim to be his relative in this forum.
I suggest you guys put your difference aside and rally behind Don to really know who he is. Then you might start to appreciate and follow like everyone else.

Brothers, I see all of you are not using your brains but emotions,anger,frustrations and words leading to destruction and desolation that you will only regret later.
