Luship Ownership Problems

Overthe last two days, the Ltheran Church has been  trying to resolve  an embarrassing internal  struggle for control  overthe  Church’s business arm, Kambang Holdings, which manages  Shipping company, Ltheran Shipping.

 

Ltheran Shipping workers, who previously went on strike over poor working conditions, have again raised concerns overthe instability withinthe company.

 

Atthe center ofthe controversy is a group of  church representatives, claiming ownership ofthe company,the Beushop ofthe Ltheran Church and company representatives who remain tightlipped.

 

The relative majority ofthe church members including senior pastors from various Ltheran Districts and Ltheran Shipping workers  are calling  for a financial audit to be carrlied out onthe operations of  Kambang Holdings,the  business arm ofthe Ltheran Church run Ltheran Shipping.

 

They argue thatthe  members ofthe church  should know howthe company is  being managed.  According to church insiders who are in possession of an internal investigation report commissioned bythe Church,there has not been a financial  audit’since 2008. Atthe center of a controversy, is   a small group of  church  members  informally called “nominees”  representing  various Ltheran districts in  Papua New Guinea They performthe role of intermediary betweenthe church and Kambang holdings.  

 

Its understood, very recently,the group establishedthemselves  as an entity claiming some right of ownership and decision making over Kambang Holdings slash Ltheran Shipping.

 

They’re also takenthe Ltheran Beushop to Court  over decisions to terminatethe board and management.

Ltheran Shipping  is almost synonymous with Morobe’s shipping  industry. It’serves people in  Finchafen and outer lying islands ofthe Morobe Province.In October last year,the seafarers went on strike over safety concerns.
