Mendokain Pambarana,

What you say here is true. Peter Ipatas, John Pundari, Jeffrey Balakau and the others have failed Enga terribly. All thinking Engans know our province needs to elect someone better to lead.....BUT WHO?????????

It's good to come out with informative pieces like this but if you are to criticise someone or something you must also come up with a better alternative. What has been done to Enga, has been done. Who is your alternative amongst the field of candidates we have for the Enga Regional seat? Who is the right person that Enga must chose this GE? I hope we don't return Peter Ipatas, or put in outdated Paul Torato. This people have shown how destructive and regressive they can be when in power.


We need a new leader.

Positive Thinking/Writing for Enga

It is very saddenning that All that I have read over this web is a set of complaints. Manic idiots who cower behind pen names to attack other peoples standing and character.

Even worse, they provide not alternative to the criticisms they seem to endlessly propagate. They should know that "A set of complaints do not constitute a plan".

Until and unless these so called educated idiots provide a real alternative to the Ipatas regime in both a Charismatic Leader and Development policies, all their rhetorics are just that, nonsensical rhetorics by people with nothing better to do with their time.

Good Leadership is a trait not defined by educational qualification, religious affiliation or economic standing. Education, religion and economic standing can influence the capacity and capability and style of leadership but they do not define leadership.

This is because leadership is not defined by the enclosed ideals of a text book. Leadership by definition is about; 1.the ability of a person to lead the masses and having the ability to mobilise and rally the people behind a united cause for their own advancement (Charisma & Vision).
2. Having mobilised the peoples support behind him, a good leader will organise and mobilise the development resources to address the development issues affecting our peoples which every body in Enga knows about.

You don not need to go to school in Tokyo, Sydney of London to know how to do this.

A good leader is one who has the ability and capacity to identify the strengths and weaknesses firstly in himself/herself and build a team of people around oneself so as to improve his capacity and ability lead his/her people effectively.

He needn't have gone to Harvard, if can mobilise a Harvard graduate to think for him/her to address a particular problem. It is better to have a leader with a general ground in all facets of life rather than a PHD lab rat with a tunnel vision for test tubes. It would be better to have a lay Christian than a fundamentalist idealist willing to blow himself/herself Up for God's cause.

An even sadder picture for Enga, is the fact that you so called educated people are all tainted and biased by tribal and political affiliation. As such, no matter how neutral you try to pretend, reading through your mess, we can see that your biases shine out as clear as daylight.

First and foremost, let us all swallow out prides and egos, with which, will go our biases and contradictions. If we seriously believe in the future of the province, speak maturely and honestly about the ISSUES and not the PERSONS and be a proponent of change for BETTER in stead of a REGIME CHANGE antagonist which does no good for Enga.

Preaching blind regime change will maintain the STATUS QUO of culture of Government, Administration and Society but a change of peoples faces at the top with no real progress for our peoples.

If you seriously look at it, you change the leaderships of Ipatas, Polye, Abal, Yarrkka etc, what you achieve is regime change with no real progress as has been the case. The same culprits that were the problem in Enga in Tindiwis time, were the same ones during Balakau's time are still around when Ipatas is around. If we get a regime change and have Miss Shit as Governor next year, I will bet my life that the same culprits will continue the culture of government and administration in Enga.

In two years time when I visit this site, I am sure to read the same kind of nonsensical educated bullshit about another regime change.

If you educated people out their in cyberspace want to be a real proponent of CHANGE in Enga, I ask you firstly to swallow your prides, egos and biases.

Start to write and think positively as educated Engans and not as disillusioned exiles.

Every positive writing and thinking will become a pillar of CHANGE for Enga. Lets face it, Rome was not built in one lifetime.

If we really want to change the culture and mentality of our governments and peoples and be an influence to later generations of Engans coming, we need to be proactive proponents to change the culture and mentality of governance and administration. You can really change Enga with your positive writing and thoughts. Remember the "Pen is mightier than the sword".

People like Plato and Aristotle shaped the destiny of humanity with their thoughts and pens. We can be a beacon of hope to our people.

If you fight people or attack them, humankind has a natural tendency to fight back. The law of "Self-Preservation" is written in every human gene. We cannot destroy all the "bad" / "evil" people so that Enga can become better. Remember the Holocaust did not succeed, but we can influence the way our Families, Wantoks, clansmen. Tribesmen think.

The kind of change required in Enga is in the way our people think, rationalise and set out to address their societal problems. The culture of the Engan way of life is the cause of tribal fights, law & Order problems, compensation issues and the list is endless.

These issues can not be solved by legislation, or government antagonism, but by an integral change in the way of thinking and culture of our peoples. I essence we need a process of "CIVILISATION" to assimilate our peoples into the 21st Century so that we can live in this global village as "civilised beings" in the 21st Century instead of "Stone Age Barbarians".

I apologise for getting carried away in the maze of thinking, but the point here is that: ENGA NEEDS YOU. You are among the fortunate few of Enga, and as such with this privilege comes the responsibility of Individual leadership to your families and communities to bring about this change in our respective communities.

Real Change in Enga, by the nature of our province and peoples can not be top down procedure as is propagated by the REGIME CHANGE idealists but a bottom up civilisation process with changes beginning from the family unit.

This is where your responsibility starts. So please do not waste you thoughts on mindless ideologies and fantasies because Enga Needs All its Brains... And that includes you too...

Sanso,

I cannot believe you have purposely undermined what has been discussed with your rather open handed attack on criticism. You begin your opening lines overly downplaying the facts of the Ipatas government as highlighted by Pambaran. I must say it is NOT A REQUIREMENT in literature to always present an alternative or to make soothing comments for the sake of comport-seeking readers with the likes of you and a few others who have expressed their ‘tunnel views.’

I like the way you preach leadership with big, unsubstantiated remarks, aggregating loosely packed and wide generalizations to make a single point which is the need for good leadership. Don’t hide behind the rhetoric and claim to be a proponent of change, when in fact you yourself have become a victim and an advocator of treason. I am reading the mind behind the person who wrote this and am thinking, this is a living example of a proponent of corruption. When will such people like you, ever DRAW THE LINE BETWEEN WHAT IS GOOD AND WHAT IS NOT? We have had enough sweet talkers and people who seem to show as if they really care about anything, when in fact, they are actually co-conspirators of current woes. Come down to earth, people, and see the realities of what Enga and PNG is going through right now. We need people who can DRAW THE LINE, not compassionate, sweet-talking comport zone seekers. It is time to cause a status quo, to disturb the sleeping to realize the realities. For you to make noble statements about leadership and classifying all Engan intellects who expresses their opinions here as narrow minded and complaint oriented, you have gone way to far, as if using the name of God to demand sins to be forgiven and to let the current conditions of governance be extended until such a time when all Engans are ‘CIVILISED’??

Every literature written on the phase of the earth has a purpose, a point. Regardless of its style, taste and expression, it is for the critics to derive the conclusions or come up with the alternatives. It is for the pro-current regime who seem to desperately seek a good word, a measure of fairness with their blunt, ignorant criticisms and generalizations to come up with your points with facts backing, and equally show us why we so DESPERATELY NEED to continue on with the current regime.
