people, our MPs or any other leaders for that matter will not change Enga. no one individual can change the minds and hearts of Engans.

i think it is all in the attitude of Engans. if we all want to see change in our beloved province it is up to us to take the first steps by changing ourselves first. like what Mahatma Ghandi said, " if you want to see change in the world you must first be the change you want to see in the world". Hence it is up to each individual from the villages right up to educated Engans and MPs to change themselves first before we change our immediate families, tribes, and the province. Now the question is how do we change ourselves? as educated engans we all know the answer to that question. it is easy for us to change. however, the poor average Engan villager at home has been entrenched in the 'old and outdated Engan system' and will not be easy to change. this are the very people that need to change now to stop tribal fights and create a conducive environment for progress in Enga. how should uneducated engans at home change?

I leave this open to you others to express your views on how our people at home should have a quantum shift in their mindset and what should be done to induce such change in their attitudes so that progress and development can be effected in Enga.

I agree with you partly, and to say there is nothing that don't change, especially human behaviour. Enga will surely change but will be a process of changes. The people of Enga should be 'influenced' in their way of live and thinking, then change will occur. Now, the MPs have a direct responsibility to the people of Enga, and engans are the most sensible people in PNG, they will listen to the MPs, if the MPs are serious about combating tribal fights.

For us educated engans, education has already influenced ourselves and we shouldn't be thinking about tribalism. We should strive to create a United Enga, indeed Enga is 'One People, One Language and One Province.' Lets stand for Enga with our MPs.
