Media personnel were tipped off this morning of the sacked Attorney General’s arrival from Goroka at 11am.
Soon enough vehicle loads of the Sinasina-Yongumugl MP’s supporters were on site at the domestic arrivals of Jacksons airport.
This prompted airport security to be on high alert, should the crowd become rowdy. In any case the vehicles were not supposed to be parked at that section.
We asked leaders of the group what they thought about the sacking of Kerenga Kua as attorney general.
Shortly after, the man of the moment arrived; he looked calm and relaxed as he shook hands with supporters.
As the media scrambled to get comments from him, he said he would address the crowd first. He told them that he was not officially notified of his sacking, that he would sit down with the Prime Minister and diplomatically discuss the reasons of his sacking.
We asked him if he was seen as a threat by the Prime Minister in regards to the Chairman of Taskforce Sweep Sam Koim. He said the Taskforce, although under his ministry, operated independently.
In a statement, Prime Minister Peter O’Neill explained that he had decommissioned Mr Kua because he went against an NEC decision to amend section 145 the constitution; to reduce votes of no confidence and to give the ruling party a full term in office.
Mr Kua called for calm from his followers, urging them not to think about the Attorney general position as his birth right. He no doubt appreciated the mannerism of the leader.
Another question asked, was about whether he thought the PM should voluntarily hand himself into police for questioning, he said he would answer that question during a media conference on Friday.
