Good vision for the people of Enga and PNG, however, if you dont mind i would like to make a few remarks on your two vision. Let me re-iterate your visions:
1. To build permanent homes for Engans, which will improve the standard of living.
2. Root out corruption in PNG.
These two tasks seem very simple to put on pen and paper, but how can you do it? Can you highlight your action plans to achieve this? pardon me if i am ignorant, but, i personally like seeing plans to achieve those great visions.
Many have contested the elections with great vision, but once they get in, they dont know where to start implementing their visions, because they happen to have a vision but lack the plan to implement their vision.
Corruption is endemic and systemic, if i may use Sir Mekere Morauta's words in explaining corruption in PNG. Corruption is rooted in the system and one man can not root out corruption, even for that matter party. Multitudes contested the preceding elections under the banner of uprooting corruption in PNG, but once they got in, they become smeared with corruption. It was hard for them to abstain from it because it is endemic in the system. Therefore, your vision as it seems so easy on pen and paper, needs proper planning. You have to have like-minded people if you are serious.
I have seen NGO's and other organisations have been set up to address this issue of corruption in PNG, but, they dont seem to be effective in addressing this issue because once you stand up against it, you are an easy target for corruption itself and one way or another, corruption is like a giant that will swallow you. All i need to see is your plan on how to address this endemic issue that has taken its roots everywhere in society.
If you have the vision, how have you diseminated your vision to others who are with you, and are you 100 percent sure that they are with you? If your vision does not transpire to the people below you, you will fight a lone battle, and you will give up on the way. I am just providing a critical view on this issue, not a criticim. Mind you, this is no easy task. If you have that vision, there has to be people who have that same vision, not wolf in sheep skin just to get into parliament, but people who are willing to sacrifice their own lives and money to root out this evil. When i say own money, if it means sourcing financing to root this evil with your own money, apart from the public purse.
How will control those who are working under you? how will you control your wife, or your children, or your relatives, or your own business associates, school mates, political affiliates, etc. If you are able to convince those closest with you, with you vision, and they are for it 100 percent, physically and financially, then i believe this evil can be rooted out. If not, this can only be a dream. Your story about David against Golliate, he surely depended on Gods mighty power, but he had to have his own weapon to fight Goliath, he had to grab 5 pebble stones, which God used to put down Goliath. All i am asking is, God will only be at you side when you provide him the pebble stones and take a step forward in addressing this issue. Come up with your plans on how to root out this evil and i might be at your side providing my support with my vote and assist any way i can.
As for the modern buildings for Engan people, i have to tell you thats a big ask. If you are looking at general hygien for the people of Enga, then you would engage people to carry-out training sessions in villages on how to prepare healthy food etc. Maybe all they need is water supply, some basic services like health, etc. This will go a long way in supporting your view of living a healthy life. SDA's seem to do well in this area, could use their curriculm etc, to emphasise healthy living in the village, that is achievable than building permanent building for all Engans. Mind you, the first thing an enemy targets is a modern building during a trouble fight.
Few thoughts on your great visions.
