K10m to develop Wabag town

RESOURCE rich Wabag town, the provincial capital of Enga, will get a face lift with of grant of K10 million, courtesy of Wabag MP and Foreign Affairs Minister Sam Abal.
Mr Abal announced the good news a week ago in Wabag that he had diverted all the funds to upgrade and develop the town in accordance with its standard techniques and specification in the urban planning.
He said in the previous years, Wabag town planning was poorly done and leaders had deliberately failed to give attentive consideration.
“I will divert this K10 million into the development of Wabag town and other projects within the vicinity of the town,” he said.
“Right now, I can’t fund any project in the rural areas because there is tribal fighting.
“If you are still fighting, I can’t blindly pump money there,” Mr Abal said,
He added that law and order must be in place before the people could expect services.
Mr Abal said the town development would cater for the specifications including proper sewerage system, drainage, street sealing, designing of parks, installation of street lights, repairing of culvert and others.
Mr Abal, who is the son of former Wabag MP and first Opposition leader, Sir Tei, said town development was a concern concept for the people and he would ensure necessary developments were done to make Wabag a decent town for business and investments.
He said that Sir Tei was one of those who funded several projects like Wabag Secondary (now Sir Tei Abal secondary school), Sir Tei Bridge, Enga administration building, which was burnt down, and others in the electorate.
Mr Abal said the ground breaking ceremony was expected to embark later this year and actual construction would begin next year.
Meanwhile, he urged public servants, police, councillors and town Lord Mayor to work together.
He added that scattered tucker shops and container retail outlets and street vendors should vacate trading in the town.
He challenged the urban council and Lord Mayor to set their prioritise right to help him clean up the town.

I support Sam Abal's move, however, a thorough and tight planning is required to achieve something tangible at Wabag. The location is at a very tight terrain and there is absolutely no room for expansion but if it's thoroughly planned, the K10M can make a big difference in Wabag. And then again, the K10M will step on a few toes and hopefully will not cause much stir!

It's a very good initiative by the MP for Wabag. I suggest a portion of that K10 million should be used to put reinforced concrete pipes along the kopp creek. The concrete pipes can then be covered with layers of soil and dirt to the level of the road effectively increasing the width of the road.

This creek is a eyesore in the middle of the town as it creates a steep trench along it's path.

Otherwise, drain and channel the kopp creek from near the Catholic Cathedral to the creek that runs through Amala.

Merry Xmas

The trench in the middle of the town is an eyesore but culverts won't help. You need tonnes and tonnes of big bolders placed along the entire lenght of the trench. It will cost millions to fill up this area. It will probably be cheapy buying new land somewhere and buiding a new township then to fill up this big trench that runs more then 30 kilometers or more.

Very efficient town planning is needed here to develop Wabag Town. The customary landownership is the main obstacle to the expansion and development of Wabag Town.
I wish the Govt would carry out a Re-location programme
of the Town. I don't think the people will be moved.
In Enga, no one can be moved out permanently of his land so the Aipiaps, Lanekeps, kayalu, kala, or sapips willl not be moved and the town will be consumed by the growing population of these tribes.
We better do something now for a better Enga Capital.

...When our home is okay, we'll be okay...

It's better we help Sam Abal for the good intiative and give better town planning proposals to him.
I had a plan which I'm gonna give him.

Piping or Re-channelling Kop Creek would be a very expensive exercise. We can make Kop creek part of the town beautification. All We need is better urban planning.

Cheers

After all EO does have some bright ideas, that's the way to go. Let's weed out the negatives and look at ways we can contribute for Enga to charge ahead in the new millinuem.

Guys, let me put it straight, it is one of the many media out burst by MP's that never ever get materialised? Where are the physical evidence of the first K3M out of K30M given to Wabag Contractor to improve the Wabag town just before the elections?

The standard wire mesh installed around Wabag Market by his tribesman, or Project Officer's contractor?

If you have worked on projects and how much k10m can do in terms of road construction, the amount is just peanuts. He will need K100M to reflect the town as truely a resource rich town as stated by the reporter.

If you can advise Sam, get him to have the money available and seek funds from doner agencies and come up with a better Wabag town with a budget of K110M.

Sam is in the right position, minister for FA and a former secretary of FA, whats so difficult??

Hope he does not put the money into a trust account to recoup the election expenses?

I for one am ashamed of our little town as it is not reflecting the provinces presence of Pogera & Mt.Kare. Just drive down to Hagen and see how much they have benefitted from the spin off?

Sam needs better leaders to work with him to shape Wabag town. The group from the last five years will never improve...

I think I totally agree with you. I am sick of jumping up and down just because of some media propaganda. I was earlier going to write something like..

Why not we wait and get things done first before we go to the media or announce we have plans for this and that. I'd rather get some job done first then go to the media later, and not just exaggerate but be more realistic and practical with howmuch K10 Mill can truly achieve for us.

I guess our Wabag MP has gone out preaching again this time to the public servants while he is yet to come up with plans on how to realistically disburse his allocation of K10M to his own electrorate..

refer Thenational extract...3/01/08.

......................................


‘Use fund to benefit all’
By JAMES APA GUMUNO
THE Minister for Foreign Affairs and Immigration Sam Abal has challenged public servants in the country to work with vigour this year and deliver service efficiently to the people, now that each district had K10 million available for developmental programmes.
Minister Abal said that never before had districts seen this kind of money.
He added that the people also must not see this as a free handout from the National Alliance Government.
The minister said that the money was for the people and must be used to fund projects and bring development for the all people in the districts to benefit from.
He said that the Government had played its part by allocating the money to all the districts.
Mr Abal added that the challenge was now with the public servants to facilitate and draw down the funds and provide services to all the people at the districts and the country as a whole.
The minister said that the public servants were the people in the middle who act as a bridge between the Government of the day and the ordinary people.
Minister Abal said it was through the public servants that Government projects flowed and get implemented for the people to utilise.
The minister said that he hoped all districts in the country should be able to see better road networks in their areas, improved law and order situations, more classrooms for schools being built, and clean water and electricity for use by the people in all of the districts.

Sam Abal is a visionary and a humble leader..... unlike the other Engan Leaders. The only problem he got is the the guys working around him as project officers, advisers, and etc and kanakas who want to get much benefit as possible when their tribesman is in power.
I just hope he recruits some well educated elites from Wabag district to help develop the town.
Enga needs to set up a Enga Development Advisory Committee comprised of Academics, professionals and other specialised personals that can help develop strategies for a better Enga.
To this date, Enga does not have a qualified town planner, and a brilliant economic adivisor to see real changes.

EO, I agree, Sam is truely a humble man. He is yet to prove his leadership qualities and doubt if he is a visionary leader??

I am yet to hear his vision statement, mission, objective and strategic plan for Wabag and how to roll out to benefit all of Enga. What are his immediate 2 year plans and 5 year plans for this this term ( nothing on record for last term so lus tingting)?

I may be sceptical and doubting like Thomas of the bible, but I really want to see to believe.

I still doubt because, I am yet to see something tangible, during his many years in Enga Administration and the many years in parliament? If you look at the number of years, Wabag town should be one of the best mini cities with city lights, sealed road, beautified with the natural faunas and floras of Enga.

Wane,
I agree with you on all you statements. He has not done any impact projects. The only thing he can do for the people of Wabag district is to clean up and build the Engan's Capital City, Wabag Town. He is not doing anything but we just hope that over the next 4 years will will deliver.
On the other hand, he is rebuilding the Enga image in the national politics. Our image in the political arena has been spoilded by past and current politicians but he is showing to the nation the true colour of Enga. We still owe him but that does not stop him from developing Wabag.
He must recruit some brains and develop Wabag Town.

Cheers!

EO & Wane,

Only time will tell so wait na lukluk. Politics at the international and national level, I leave it to your on judgement. The most effective way to judge or assess is to compare apple for apple so you can compare or MP verses the former ministers like Namaliu, Somare, Kaputin,etc.

I guess, its really a shy of relief for Sam, after Australia elected a new PM and a government. Thought, the minister was getting nowhere with Somare always at the back directing him not to discuss Moti issue.

The country needs a better ambassodor, a powerful minister who can talk and sell the country well. He might relinguish the post and try the speakers post, that might suit him?

Is it true that the Wabag road sealing and road works is contracted to a Building contractor? Please, get real. We have already witnessed the wastage of K2.7 million contract to Wabag contractors and now K10 million? What a joke.

We can only assume that K2.7M was to steal money to prepare for the 2007 elections and K10M to recover costs incured by NA and the associates.

Good luck to Wabag?

Wane and EO,

Being humble is not enough of a leadership quality. One should not submit to be a mere machine, and run by minds and hand push by other politicians. For how long will elected leaders compromise their identities and continue a Yes Sir styled leadership. If you are an elected leader, display it on day one and stop giving Engans rubbish excuses. Be humble but ridicule for change, time does not wait for someone to create impressions. It is Day One or Never.

Engan Lenge,

I support you; political leaders should have plans, procedures and so called documentations to carry out development in there respective areas of influence before making up their minds to stand for election. When leaders have pre-made plans or vission, then he/she will know exactly where, how and what to spend money on as well as knowing what their purpose is to be a representative. However, by looking at the latest stage of Enga, I don't think our leaders have Heart for Enga. I don't think they have vissions to make Enga grow in terms of infrustructural developments. I think we need leaders with Great Hearts and not just minds...
