Thanks kaim Moniker. You were once an Engan, sorry to hear that you are no longer Engan now. All these time I though you were an outsider talking AS IF you are not of Engan origin and that you hate Enga. Many share sentiments about the maladies of Enga, yes, we all do, but that does not take away the Engan root. After all WE ALL ARE ENGANS. Had you been specific about your resentments about Enga, Ipatas, for instance then, the tone of the message would have been different. I am sorry I have been in a mess with many foreign intellectuals and academes abroad who have called PNG and Enga "cannibals" over the table, not knowning I am an Engan. Apparently it is natrual for me to acknowledge our maladies at the same time defend my home. I KNOW WE HAVE PROBLEMS but they are not commitment by all Engans. Only a few Engans do, which paint the whole picture bad and I won't buy that, as if all is bad. You may call my position about Enga as "self serving manner" but let me be clear kaim, these are my reasons of my patriotism for Enga. Enga may be bad, but be sure that you will receive reactions from many goodhearted sons and daughters of Enga, that she is not that bad at all. After all, Enga is home.
About Ipatas, Moniker, I have confronted him and his officials in different occasions. I suggested many possibilities. My suggestions fall into bad ears. What do I do next, I support those who want to dethrone him. As long as I live, I will do that. Sorry, wasn't home when the election was on last year. Was late. This time, next election, I will support someone who will take him down. Some of us are not happy with the way his current administration is functioning. Kaim, your Enga and my Enga, OUR Enga is not what is supposed to be, but the irony is THE ADMINISTRATION. That shall be our focus of discussions, not Enga in general per se.
