Social media used to damage reputation

National

PEOPLE using social media to damage the reputation of elected leaders are “senseless” and likened to “mosquito bites”.
Imbonggu MP Francis Awesa said 99 per cent of the population in the district in Southern Highlands were good people but the one per cent were hurling accusations at leaders and destroying their reputation and creditability.
He told people in Mendi last Wednesday that the District Development Authority had been focusing on human resource development which people should appreciate.
“Millions of kina were spent in paying school fees for our children attending tertiary institutions as the district does not have crops and mineral resources,” he said.
“If I list all the services delivered to the district in the newspaper, it will take up the whole newspaper.”
He urged those passing around false information about their MPs to stop.
“Your false accusation will not destroy us completely but are just mosquito bites,” he said.
Awesa told the people he would be contesting the general election for the final time in 2017 and urged his critics to contest the seat against him.
“I did not cheat to win the elections. I played clean and won. If people want to challenge me, the door is open in 2017,” he said.
