The silence over the inquiry into the National Housing Corporation was raised today in parliament by Goroka MP, Bire Kimisopa.
The Goroka MP questioned Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, following his decision to investigate matters of NHC operations.
“The Prime Minister must tell the country if this inquiry is progressing and how far it has reached, the public is concern,” said MP Kimisopa.
Responding to the question, PM O’Neill said the inquiry is progressing and will be made public. He added that he is yet to receive a report of an inquiry into the National Housing Corporation.
In 2013, O’Neill declared a stop on all housing deals by NHC. Today, he made it clear that no eviction should take place until all investigations are completed.
“Officers not complying with the directions will be dealt with,” said PM O’Neill.
“I have received many reports of abuse and foul play by NHC officers, all these will be dealt with,” he added.
The Prime Minister says once the NHC inquiry is completed and presented to him, he will make it accessible on the floor of parliament, or out in the media.
