The National – Thursday, June 30, 2011
THE general election is just around the corner and this is an opportunity for the silent majority of Chuave district in Chimbu to exercise their democratic rights in choosing a new leader with vision for the sake of infrastructure developments.
It is evident the district is way behind in terms of infrastructure development compared to other districts such as Kerowagi, Kundiawa Gembogl and Gumine in the province.
The bulk of the 35,000 who are people from Siane, East/West Elimbari and Central Chuave have hardly seen any tangible development apart from an Asian Development Bank-funded Chuave-Movi road, which was co-funded by a former MP.
The incumbent MP has let the people down by not delivering services.
We are now left wondering where all the DSIP funds have gone to, including funds earmarked for several proposed projects in the district.
