Namah On Corruption & Bad Government Decision

Share the News
Opposition leader Belden Namah has raised concerns about the unprecedented level of corruption and bad Government decisions in the current parliament.

Mr Namah said the current Government is not transparent and accountable for some of its decisions, including the buying of two power generators to address power shortages in Port Moresby and Lae.

 

Mr Namah said the issue of power shortages has nothing to do with Government policies, given the fact that PNG Power is a company, which operates under the Companies and IPBC Acts.

 

Mr Namah said the Government’s decision to purchase two generators for PNG Power to address power problems in Port Moresby and Lae, was not transparent, as proper procedures were not followed.

 

Mr Namah accused Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, for by-passing various laws and processes involved in the payment of the two generators. He claimed that two separate payments were made to two different companies from Israel, namely, Israel Electrical Corp, and the LR Group of Israel.

 

He said the companies received K94 Million and K50 Million respectively. However, he claimed that the payment made to the LR Group was never disclosed in the National Executive Council submission.

 

Mr Namah said the board of directors for PNG Power should have made a proposal requesting for additional capital from IPBC, and then the IPBC board could decide on the funding and not the Prime Minister.
