Kaims & Pimas,

I'm campaigning early on behalf of my father (Philip Kikala) for the Lagaip/Porgera Open seat 2007 because I believe in him. I never fully appreciated what my father was up to in politics as PNG's Top Bureaucrat (National Planning Secretary 2000-2003), until recently (when I, myself, am doing a Doctoral degree in Economic Development at the Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan.)

PK seems very popular nowadays but I would like to ask for your moral support! A vote for PK is a vote for Agriculture Development. PK is the author of the Nucleo Enterprise Agriculture Policy currently utilized insufficiently by the incumbent Somare goverment. The goal of the policy is to mobilize national resources (i.e. labour, capital-land, finance, fertilizer) in order to utilize vast estates of land in PNG and expand agricultural harvest by providing village landowners with capital such as fertilizers, machinery, etc.. Greater harvest and attempts to establish communication and markets through recognized retailer outlets or crop buyers is essential to boost the sale of agricultural commodities (e.g. coffee, tea, pyrethrum) for sale to international markets. How to achieve this efficient and long-term planning using foreign bilateral/multilateral aid sources (e.g. Asian Development Bank) is a challenge and requires intelligent and visionary insight.

Here in rich countries such as Japan, FOOD SECURITY is a major concern and the Japanese (or other richer country consumers) are very conscious of the food quality recieved from untrusted developing countries such as China. They believe products from such countries i(e.g. China) involve too much chemicals such as chemically enhanced pesticides that tend to ruin the quality of natural food crops, and hence, may affect their (the Japanese) health. Imagine the money PNG could make in terms of millions of dollars, or the incomes for rural people (like our unemployed youths and relatives) if we could create an active and productive agricultural workforce with complementary market networks in our rural areas! Imagine how many Engans in POM, Lae and Mt. Hagen would return back to their villages and homelands to grow crops!! (I HAVE A VISION!!)

Why do we have rapid urbanization in POM, Lae and suburban cities when really gold can be discovered on our own tribal land?? What will we as local communities do when the unsustainable mineral and petroleum industry in Porgera Gold, Lihir Gold, OK Tedi Mines, Kutubu Oil, and Ramu Nickel shut down?? What next?? Do we loose our jobs only to return to unused land and live in impoverished conditions where our children cry begging for food each day! Remember, overpopulation and pollution is also a problem for both rural and urban areas in PNG!

People, we need visionary leaders like PK to lead this nation. He is a Honors Economics graduate from UPNG with two Masters degrees in Economics (England-Norwich Uni) and Rural Development (Canada-Carleton Uni). He has the planning experience at the national level and international to lead this nation. You are leaving the country in the safest hands by giving him your vote!

So before you write that number 1 in the ballot paper, think about what's best for yourselves, our people and country for the long and short term! Either we be beggers or income-earners on our own land! As an intellectual like PK, I ask you to vote for none other than Mr. Philip Kikala for Lagaip/Porgera Open 2007!! He has the experience, knowledge and wisdom to lead our electorate, MORE than any of our former and previous MPs of Lagaip/Porgera!

Yours sincerely,

Stephen P. Kikala, BEcB-UPNG, PostGrad-Commerce, MBA-Waseda Uni
(Current PhD student in Economic Development & Infrastructure 2005 - 2008)
Waseda University, Tokyo (JAPAN)

PS: As the first born, I am 26 years old (born: Jan. 4, 1980) so you can imagine how young my father is and how much maturity, and experience he has to lead. I thank GOD than my father for my achievements in life!!!
PSS: I'll be hot on the campaign trail in Laiagam/Porgera during June 2007. So it would be good to catch up with any of you likeminded citizens of Lagaip/Porgera!

Kaim, Lagaip Porgera needs qualified people to lead. However, qualification should not be only seen as the only quality in leadership. Take for instance our current MP, Mr. Karpa Yarka, the people of Lagaip Porgera mandated him to lead them because they felt he was a very qualified man, however what he turned out to become of, once he got to parliament is contrary to his qualifications.

What we need in our electorate is a leader who is qualified and at the same time have the wisdom to lead. Without wisdom, qualification cannot operate alone. Wisdom and qualification goes hand in had in leadership. Wise people make wise decisions for the people, while foolish people make foolish decision that will affect the population at large.

There are many foolish people who have qualifications, a recipe fordisaster and wrong decisions. There is a lot of fools leading the people today, and i cant name names or give you examples, because PNG does not seem to run our of them.

For our electorate, we need a qualified wiseman to lead us. Wisdom is a gift, wisdom neither can be gained through qualification, it is God given and can be gained through years of expereince.

So, my vote goes to the qualified wiseman. From what your presented out there about your dad, your dad fits the sort of quality that i am looking for. I dont associate myself with politics nor do i side with people to gain after a election victory. My vote is clean and goes to the person that is wise and qualified.

I will see you and your dad during the election in 2007. Taking a break from work to be there and witness the excitement. My brain and energy is there for free, to develop our electorate, i would support like minded intellectuals who are keen in developing our electorate.

Cheers Kaim.. and Good luck to your dad in his endeavor to lead our people.

I do agree with Cool_Guy1 with regards to qualification not being the reason for voting a person. A lot of qualified people tend to look for opportunities to expand their asset base once in power. I haven't seen any man that has had the heart for his people being voted into Parliment just yet for the Lagaip Porgera open electorate.

In 2007, we need a person who leaves in the village and feels the daily suffering of the old man in Yangel, Yapai, Liami, Kolobi and the list of isolate villages are endless. Development is not hard to bring to the village if we have visionary leaders with a heart for the ordinary villager. This can only happen when that person has felt the pains of life in the village. If a person who doesn't leave in Enga comes home during the season to contest the elections, you must remember that he will be spending 98% of his time going from Balus Bar to Pondo Tarvern and will be finishing off at Lamana Gold club. It is not hard to bring development to the village if the MP can spend 90% of his time in the electorate.

Personally I have a lot of doubts on Mr Kikala's ability to bring tangible developments to the electrate despite his well decorated CV. Having lived in POM for a while before moving back to the village I heard people wispering around Vulupindi Haus he was Mr 10%. Due to his reputation as a opportunist when he was National Planning Secretary I will have lots of reservations casting my 3rd preference vote to him.

Dear Cool_Guy1 and Paiela Wane

Thank you both for your thoughts and opinions on the subject! Your descriptions of a wholehearted, "true" and empathetic leader is by all means relevant!

Paiela Wane, you deserve a brief rundown of PK's experiences at the provincial and village level. Your claim that PK has spent most of his life in POM during his tenure in the public service is farfetched! For your information, PK served as Assistant Secretary, Senior Planner, Deputy Secretary and Secretary consecutively for the Enga Provincial government during 1985-86 and 1988-1993. PK is a true grassroots person and I have had the firsthand experience of witnessing his weekends passionately spent in Laiagam during our time in Wabag.

In 1994, due to excessive politics at the Green House in Wabag, he fled to greener pastures in Port Moresby where he took a job at the Office of Rural Development and became the first Highlands Regional Manager. Why waste your time playing petty provincial politics when you can do more at the national level?? Instead of playing provincial politics, he opted to serve his people at a national and bureaucratic level being responsible for allocating budgetary resources and foreign aid for long-term development projects.

Even during his time in POM, he spent much of his time in Laiagam trying to resolve tribal disputes and cooperating with village councillors and council presidents to provide basic services. (People in Laiagam have acknowledged his frequent occasions spent in Enga and have widely acclaimed that the Air Niugini is his "bus".) His achievements and contributions can be seen in education and include the establishment of the Aiyaka Top-Up Community School and Laiagam Vocational School. (You may observe these establishments on my tribal grounds on your way to Porgera or Wabag.) PK is even my personal inspiration for higher learning and academic excellence.

He also played a major part in alleviating the escalating tribal conflict that spread in Laiagam involving three major tribes (Walin, Tia and Pyain). Believe me if PK was not involved, we would have a lot of unnecessary bloodshed and widespread chaos today! PK is a Peace Advocate and is affiliated to all three tribes by blood and Moka. And believe me when I say he's the Moka Man with The CV, what more can you seek in a leader?? Ask any Lagaip dude of his village-based credentials and they should tell you? He has participated in village singsings (Maldi), gutted pigs and dressed in rags with a stringbag and bushknife on his belt. He even personally told me many times that whenever things would go bad for him, he would always return to the village where he could live on kaukau and water. And that is what he has been doing during the highs and lows of his time in the public service.

Political instability is the cause of opportunities foregone and inefficiencies of public resource management. As National Planning Secretary, PK was on the verge of implementing his revolutionary ADB funded-Neucleus Enterprise Project (partial to the National Medium Term Development Strategy) by creating the first set of test plantations in Laiagam where enthusiastic clans where willing to cooperate and donate portions of their land for such an enterprising project. However the aftermath of the 2002 National Elections ruined this plan and Honorable Kappa Yarka (who was a member of the NEC) provided no support. In fact, Kappa Yarka with some jealous intention, voted for the removal of PK at the NEC roundtable.

I am glad to say, that PK's support now goes as far as Mulitaka. Porgera will naturally tag along to the bandwagon in the not too distant future because of PK's positive reputation and public character. His plans for Lagaip/Porgera are in the pipeline and if he is elected, he will definately get them executed without hesitation because I believe he is the Ultimate Planner and Policy Maker. I also intend to play a proactive and extensive part in his visions and aspirations for the electorate!

I hope this satisfies your queries and lack of information. You may prove my statements by consulting with other Lagaip citizens.

Peace!

Mr. Kikala,

Although, your exhilarating intend of arguments posted here are somewhat justified in terms of freedom of speech, there seems to be an underlying cynical gratification of a super-ego drive in yourself, just an advice these cauldron of seething excitations is sometimes devastating for you and your dadís social or self-image that you may try to positively portray.

Good luck in 2007.

Chiko

The campaign season have commenced and window-dressing on the world wide web is an option just as posters, placards and cards serve their purpose. Please comprehend that super-egos are at times NOT the intent in ALL discussions, but rather, the legitimacy of intellectual debate for enlightenment and influence on decision-making in the electoral democratic process, supersedes that motive.

Super-ego?? What is that word (says the humble turtle)? Is it not you rabbits that speak as such?

Affirmed..Challenge accepted for 2007 and beyond!

Sincerely,

KLagaipT3

I posted sometime ago about a possible brain pool for the electorate, where educated people from the electorate can contribute meaningfully in bringing services to our people.

Personally i dont miggle with politics and politicians for that matter, but, if politicians are interested in polling brains from the electorate to support his vision to bring development into the electorate, i am for it.

One way i see our electorate becoming a model district, contrary to Mr. Yarka's imagination, is by pooling brains from the district together and having open discussions sponsored by the MP of the electorate, and look for possible ways to bring development and solve issues like trouble fight in our district. This is achieveable if the politician can be more open to it.

I have seen politicians who feel threatened by someone who is educated, that is why they try to avoid them or come up with false accusations and make them their enemies. If this sort of attitude is eradicated and the politician takes the lead in bringing together educated elites from the electorate, they can provide their service free of charge.

We can still work in our own departments or companies but we can provide advice or give our opinions where ever we are needed. For instance, i have seen politicians come into parliament un-prepared. You can be an ordinary politician but if you have someone who is qualified working in one of the prime institutions of the country, you can use his/her intellect to give you advice on how to question certain things during parliamentary debates. The list goes on.

Personally, this is the way forward for our electorate, if a leader provides this sort of leadership. My services are free of charge, i am willing to help where i can. If it means photo-copying articles or writing papers or submissions, i am willing to do that for free for my people. For the Lagaip/Porgera electorate, i am looking for a like minded person whom i can be able to confide in.

Cool_Guy1 & PNGean

Thanks for your valued comments and appraisals!

Cool_Guy1, your commune idea has drawn my ears and I am attracted to your unwavering commitment for the cause. If PK should win this election, I will press the pedal down from where I stand in Tokyo!!

In this Global Age of Information Technology and Telecommunication, the following personal commitment is just one small, cost-effective but innovative project that should be achievable within the course of 5 years, and be complementary to the development of an agricultural sector in Lagaip/Porgera:

*First and foremost I will register a Community-based NGO in Port Moresby with the view to promote socio-economic benefits through direct inputs from the community. (Cool_Guy1 and other interested local community leaders are invited to assist with that.)

The idea.........

# INTERNET CAFE & TELECENTER in LAGAIP/PORGERA

Telecom and IT facilities such as fax machines, computers, phones, and media apparatuses will be acquired from the numerous and charitable donees, companies and houses in Japan for the purpose of establishing a Telecenter in Laiagam. Accumulating such electronic goods will not be a hassle in terms of cost and logistics because the expertise and set-up will be provided by a Japanese and local Telikom experts while the building, property and security should be constructed and offered by the local community.

Benefits:
1) Aid local cash crop growers to transmit and receive valuable information and data concerning their transactions with middlemen, and international/local buyers. Such valuable information include: i) availability of crop quality & quantity; ii) delivery schedules; iii) buyer expectations and dollar cost per bulk/weight/volume, iv) buyer/seller profiles and transactions, v) general industry information through motion pictures, multi-media presentations (including workshops for public awareness and education) etc., vi)and general communication purposes

2) Paving the way for an information-based and globalized society utilizing Internet and television networking technology

Costs:
1) Free manual and labor costs via community efforts
2) Free property contribution from the community with latter plans for one-off royalty payment
3) Subsidized tariff prices and administrative costs utilizing an annually estimated 10% of EDF funds (K500,000 X 0.1)
4) Hopefully, you (as stakeholders) will offer freely your contributions in resources, ideas and time.

As for the part where the actual agro-industry planning is involved, I will leave that to PK to concentrate at the national policy-making level to continue his drive and fight to ensure financial resources are secured and his Nucleu Agro Enterprise project sees the light of day in Lagaip/Porgera.

(Then again, this could all be wishful thinking if PK does not get the numbers! However regardless of the outcome in the national elections, I will remain enthusiastic and committed as ever for the development of my electorate, province and country! Mark my words!)

Sincerely,

SPK

By the tone of your note, you have yet to substantiate the basis of your supporting arguments wrt you dad. You need to get out of you closet (being professional student) and get some real work experience or your mind-blowing ideas may still exists in text books.

Ehehehehe! My apologies if I suppress or offend you in any way! Did I say I'm better than you or anyone out there? I merely made a public announcement and offer to the people of my electorate in time for the upcoming national elections! (Relax, I'm not going there again!)

Peace!
