The implementation of Government Policies in Wapenamanda District, Enga Province, has been an outstanding issue for the provincial government, especially with capacity building.
Member for Wapenamanda and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Immigration, Rimbink Pato presented his districts 2013 acquittals today, to Acting Secretary of the Department of Implementation and Rural Development, Paul Sai’i.
Administrative inefficiencies, mainly with lack of corporation and incompetency of the District Administrative staff, and the absence of the District Administrator for 2013, had left much of the funding allocated for the district unspent.
This was said today by the Member for Wapenamanda, during the presentation of the Districts 2013 DSIP and DSG acquittals.
A number of projects were approved by the Wapenamanda Joint District Budget Planning and Priorities Committee for last year on law and order, health, infrastructure, communities, the economic sector, disaster and relief funds, and the resealing of the Wapenamanda Roads station, and rural road cleanups.
Pato said that most of these projects have not been achieved. Projects and developments have been identified, and all that is needed now is the capacity to implement these projects.
Funds allocated for the districts economic sector, however have not been received, but a plan of economic programs have been devised to roll out funding for economic activities, once the funds are received sometime this year.
