Debate in darkness
Even our supreme House is not spared when PNG Power decides to cut electricity supply. It happened again yesterday when PM Marape was tabling the UBS K3bn loan inquiry report. Oh, there may be a message there for Marape and the MPs.
Everyone, especially the voters, loves lively, fierce debates in Parliament – as long as they are not too loud so as to make it impossible to hear what is being said. Some MPs sound like preachers during the Sunday service.

Colleague was shocked to see the monthly subscription for 40-channel Digicel Playbox jump from K95 to K99. No explanation given. Everyone is trying to make quick money and using the “rising costs” excuse.

You cannot change how people treat you or say about you. All you can do is change the way you react to it. (Mahatma Gandhi)
“I welcome the (UBSK3bn loan) report, its findings and its recommendations, and I will stand on my word.
