Gore lies about bribes, blames Arore for everything

Higher Education Minister and Sohe MP, Delilah Gore has  blatantly lied  in the media about payments made by her  ministry  to facilitate the vote of no confidence  against Gary Juffa.

Speaking  in a press conference yesterday,    Delilah Gore said  she  had no knowledge of the K17,000 payment that was  made to the Grand Papua  Hotel  for accommodation expenses in the days leading up the Gary Juffa’s removal as Oro Governor.  In the same breath,  she pointed the finger of blame at Ijivitari MP David Arore.

“My department is in the clear,”  she said. “I am not in any way involved contrary to what the Ivivitari MP, David Arore has claimed."

  But Gore’s statements come  a day after evidence was posted on  various news media websites  that showed payments made by the Ministry of Higher Education to  the Grand Papua  Hotel. Sources close to  Minister Gore  confirmed the legitimacy of the documents and the dates and  purpose of the payments.  

Yesterday,  Governor Juffa blasted Gore over the payments stating that the  K17,000 was used to accommodate  and pay local level government presidents who  plotted  the  vote of no confidence motion against  him.

In a desperate attempt not to offend Juffa or Arore, Delilah Gore maintained she remained  neutral in the turmoil despite her cozy  association with David Arore during   the vote of no confidence motion in Popondetta  days ago.

“My department has nothing to do with Oro politics and I want to clear our name in this.”

Governor Juffa meanwhile will be tendering those documents  to fraud investigators   in the coming days.

Drunk Arore abuses Gary Juffa on FM100 Talkback

In a highly  embarrassing twist  to the Oro province power struggle, a drunk Ijiviari MP,  David Arore, called in to Roger Hau’Ofa’s  Talkback show today   and screamed abuse at the Oro Governor, Gary Juffa while  millions of Papua New Guineans were tuned in. 
                One listener described  Arore’s conduct as both hilarious and disgraceful after  one member of the mob in the background was heard   using the “F” word.  
                Talk back host, Roger Hau’ofa  was also verbally abused by the Ijiviatri MP.  He was later forced to switch off  the  intoxicated member of parliament who “virtually screamed” at the radio host and the governor.
                Without missing a beat, Gary Jufa,  said: “…and that is the kind of alternative that Oro people have.”
                It is also understood, the FM 100 signal was switched off in Popondetta from 10am onwards  with no clear explanation.

 ...Chief of staff of the Prime Minister's Department.  Ben, mate, you're in dream world.  How can you stop what's happening around you? If you really want the support of Papua New Guineans, don't mess with out constitutional freedoms.  Just take it on the chin and work it out.  This is the critic's message to you. You're dealing with a whole new generation. It's a whole new ball game. 

By the way, what happened to the radical Ben Micah from the University days? What happened to him?
