Public Servants in the Goilala district have been warned to return to their respective stations and deliver services to the people, or their appointments will be terminated.
Local MP, Daniel Mona lashed out at the public servants, saying many have been on the payroll for over a decade, yet there is near to nil government services in the 3 LLGs of the district.
Mr. Mona told them to take up their posts immediately, and assist police to investigate and address the law and order problems in the district within 30 days.
Goilala is one district close to the nation’s capital Port Moresby, but yet so far in terms of education and health services, and overall infrastructural development. Mr. Mona blamed it on the poor performance of public servants.
Out of the 3 LLGs, Tapini is the only LLG that has some vital services operational, such as health, education, banking, markets, airstrip and police. He warned the public servants to pull up their socks, or get sacked.
The district administrator, Jimmy Anio, said it is a very difficult task to develop the district due to the geographical settings, in fighting within the administration and the chain of law and order problems.
Mr. Anio said over the years, leaders have given up so easily to develop the district. Due to funding constraints to bring in more policemen to address the chain of pay back killings in the district, the public servants have been told to assist in the investigation of the murders dating back to January.
The investigation will also cover the shooting of a local Catholic priest and his communion minister. Police are on the ground and an initial investigation has begun.
