Husband must adhere to court conditions

Letters, Normal

The National, Tuesday 12th February, 2013

AFTER previously reading about James Toni assaulting his wife, Lae MP and Minister for Youth, Religion and Community Development Loujaya Toni, the recent news about the five-year good behaviour bond imposed on him by the court is appropriate, in my opinion.
Firstly, James Toni should have been the proudest person in his community and the country when his wife won the election, a rare case in our country’s political history.
Secondly, he should respect her and let her carry out her professional duties.
Thirdly, he should support whatever projects and initiatives she is trying to implement in the electorate and at the na­tional level.
Finally, if he is a Christian, he should pray and ask God for the wisdom, knowledge and understanding over his wife and protection over his family.
These are some of the things he should have done from day one willingly and joyfully, and not just because of a court order.
However, since he failed to do these things out of common sense, I believe the five conditions of the court order is perfect.
I encourage the Lae member to stick to her stand and not settle out of court despite his pleas as he has shown her as well as the rest of PNG what kind of husband he is in the first place.
