Ineffective planning by government agencies is costing taxpayers millions of kina.
The Special Parliamentary Committee on Public Sector Reform and Service Delivery say this is a result of poor management.
Today EMTV News with the team took a tour of Port Moresby city. The trip was to show how this is affecting public life and assets.
An example of a waste of taxpayers’ money, is the vandalism done to the newly constructed light poles along the Gerehu roundabout to Baruni road.
Some of these light poles along this and along the newly constructed 9 mile to Gerehu road, have been knocked down by cars that have veered off the road.
The question that the Parliamentary Committee is asking now is, ‘who will pay for the damages done’?
Following its various reports into health and education issues, the Special Parliamentary Committee on Public sector reforms and Service delivery has said the public sector is a gross impediment to development in the country.
Head of the Committee Secretariat, Dr Bill Hamblin, asks while the committee commends the Public Service Commission for ensuring public servants go to work, what is the guarantee that they will do their jobs?
“That is an issue of management,” he said.
