Wanim taim masta bilong ol kam bek?
Indeed, Troppo. I was asked the above many many times back in the early 90's, by older PNG Villagers when flying into the Bush strips.

They remembered when there was a functioning District HQ, with a Medical centre and a School for the kids.

And a Kiap who would enforce the Law and take no s**t from no-one!

I have the deepest sympathy for the grass roots people whose livelihood and future depend on central government making sound decisions for all citizens, not just the elite. PNG should have prospered for all, however a few have fd everything up. PNG/Africa...Same same but different. Beautiful country, beautiful people...apart from POM and the decisions made there
I often wonder if anyone in the Australian Bureaucracy has ever done a search on who owns property along the Queensland Gold Coast, (and elsewhere) who the owners are, and ask themselves just where the money came from for the purchase of said property.

Sad really. Paradise lost.
Em Nau!
