Sikita and Naro, I appreciate the way you look at the reality. I do agree that if ever we could think of and Engan who is genuine and wants to move Enga, I would go for the late Andersen and of course Kundapen, but we all know that Kundapen is not running. Just to correct you Naro, Kundapen contested againt Torato, together with the late Balakau. Torato was nick named Alupee and so was Balakau Yamarak. Enga has its history, but Kundapen supporting Torato is not on. He had been seen teaming up with the priest, Paul Kanda. Check your facts, coze I have seen some "activities" going on with these men.
In experience wise, I may all agree that the priest may not have any political experience, but mind you, politics is about consensus, integrity and transparency. Leaders ought to have that. When you talk about governance, then, I wouldn't question the ability of this priest. He had set records as far as Wellington New Zealand as a leader in a white dominated institution and even in the remote places of Hetwara sepik in Timbuke. (I did my homework to check his profile).
I agree that he should be at the altar serving the people, but difference does it make when, the priests points out the wrong doings of the leaders and NOTHING is done? I know of priests who have used the pulpit to talk about justice when there was injustice; they have talked about transparency when there is a lot of misuse. The list goes on, and at the end, NOTHING, but a deep sigh. I think it is time, a man from the pulpit goes public and try. Let us see how it happens.
I respect the decision he made, to let go what he loved mose to be in favor of God's people in a political scenario. Guys, mind you, he had done his home work first before he raised his hands up.
For six months, he went around Enga, getting the opinions of all the people, catholics and SDAs, Lutherans and AOGs, and the overwhelming majority said they will back him up. Even a SDA pastor had donated his toyota land cruiser to the priest for his campaign. What do we educate learn here?
Why not we educated pipol listen and observe the unspoken words and actions of our people who in their simplicity want this man of their own kind give it a try, to see if there is any hope of shedding light back to Enga, back to them.
Ipatas has practically done nothing. He is sailing on the Free Education policy which is not even free at all. He is using this policy as a basis to be the next prime minister, but what he had failed is to clean his own backyard. Education may be the key to any success, but proper Human Resource Management had suffered badly in the Ipatas regime in Enga.
I for one would still go for the priest. He may lack certain aspects in a political game but politics is a collective game. He would need people like us and I bet he will beg for people like us to help move Enga. Can't we leave this priest do his part? Maybe this is time for a change. It took David to oust Golliat in the Scripture.
This EngaN priest, a son of Enga is the David againts all the Golliats we have, the recycled leaders. Mark your choices.
