Silver Jubilee for Mapai Transport a Papua New Guinea leading trucking company

By Ezekiel PETER
ENGA LUTHERAN COMMUNITY (Facebook) 23/04/2015

After 25 years in his humble beginnings Jacob Luke from Monokam village, Ambum, Enga Province, started the Mapai Transport. On the 10th of July 2015 Mapai will celebrate 25 years in business
and surpassed 100 prime movers and anothe
r 200 assorted vehicles in her operations throughout the country. With the recent acquisition of East-West Transport it now arrives on the forefront of the trucking business and sees they have over met the demands on the market in PNG.

Son of a Lutheran pastor Jacob maintains a close and knitted relationship with the two Lutheran churches in PNG. His support to other individuals and groups in PNG is enormous. The ongoing giving of K7.5 million to the Monokam Community Development Project speaks aloud of a successful business started by Jacob out of nothing, having terminated from grade 8 at High School. His story and how he started Mapai with the help of American Lutheran missionaries in Enga will be unveiled in July this year at the time of the 25 anniversary launching in Lae.

After reading the many comments in relation to our Members of Parliament being referred by Ombudsman Commission to Public Prosecutor on allegations of misconduct in office versus those being charged by Police for criminal offences it seems most are still confused about these two very distinct judicial processes. Therefore I thought it only proper to provide a brief insight to better 
clarify their distinctive differences.

Those who have been following my articles over the past year would already be familiar with the subject matter. However I understand social media in PNG in recent times has exploded with a direct readership of 200,000 and word of mouth reach exceeding 1 million. So it's appropriate to revisit some of the points already covered in the past.

What is the Leadership Code?

Leadership code are laws established by the Constitution (Division 2) governing ethics (moral values) and code of conduct of those who hold leadership positions in the public service or Government.

Kenyan Lawyer Sue Isreal For Killing Jesus

A Kenyan lawyer filed a petition with the International Court of Justice in The Hague, suggesting that the trial and crucifixion of 

Jesus Christ was unlawful, and the State of Israel among others should be held responsible, Kenyan news outlet the Nairobian reported some time ago.

 Dola Indidis, a lawyer and former spokesman of the Kenyan Judiciary is reportedly attempting to sue Tiberius (emperor of Rome, 42 BCE-37 CE), Pontius Pilate, a selection of Jewish elders, King Herod, the Republic of Italy and the State of Israel.

“Evidence today is on record in the Bible, and you cannot discredit the Bible,” Indidis told the Kenyan Citizen News.

Although those he suggests should have been convicted during the original trial have not been alive for more than 2,000 years, Indidis insists that the government for whom they acted can and should still be held responsible.

“I filed the case because it’s my duty to uphold the dignity of Jesus and I have gone to the ICJ to seek justice for the man from Nazareth,” Indidis told the Nairobian.

“His selective and malicious prosecution violated his human rights through judicial misconduct, abuse of office bias and prejudice.”

Indidis apparently named the states of Italy and Israel in the lawsuit because upon the attainment of independence, the two states incorporated the laws of the Roman Empire, those in force at the time of the crucifixion.

He is challenging the mode of questioning used during Jesus’s trial, prosecution, hearing and sentencing; the form of punishment meted out to him while undergoing judicial proceedings and the substance of the information used to convict him.

Who is Peter Ipatas?

An in-depth analysis of the Ipatas-led government needs to be presented to the people of Enga and aspiring supporters throughout the country. Serious considerations have to be made on the characteristics of the Ipatas government for the last 17 years, his achievements and the future of Enga on the current sails.

As implicated in the PAC findings in 2004, it is sad to reflect that the founding fathers of our nation and those that followed immediately thereafter with the likes of Mr Peter Ipatas, began the journey to self-governance with the same corrupt and bribery attitude as is widespread today. People like Pais Wingti and Ipatas were the 'refiners' of the corrupt system. As for Wingti, he never got a chance to finish his university degree but became a politician while doing his 3 rd year at UPNG. Ipatas followed, due to unsatisfactory performance and disciplinary matters and went back to his home village in Irelya in Enga Province .

There, it is understood that he started a band of notorious highway cowboys who frequently held roadblocks on the Highlands Highway leading to Porgera. During his time, many felt victims of our now good governor. He used the proceeds of the thieving venture and invested them in a trade-store which is still in existence at Irelya today. People became frustrated by Mr Ipatas' continuous harassment of innocent travelling public that during one of the council elections, the Talyul tribe unanimously decided to appoint him as their councillor as a test to see if he could feel responsible and lead a normal life. And it work but with a different twist.

Infrastracture development in Tsak Valley, Wapenamanda District Enga Province


The Tsak constituency in Wapenamanda district of Enga Province has been lacking many basic services for decades. The successive MPs have done tittle or nothing for this most populated part of the province. However, light has finally shown at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks Mr Mathew Taso, a leader and the founder of Warenge Komba Foundation Inc, a non government organisation for the initiative you take to obtain these funds to construct Tsak's Waikam bridge and Lower Lai's Timin Bridge... Its not always a MP to fund such impact projects but donors can also do.. Some elites open their eyes and see beyond horizons while most fight for the MPs seat throwing bullets here and there.. Salute you MT..

And we also thank the Hon MP and Minister for Foreign Affairs Rimbink Pato for having such a good relationship with the national government for the O'Niel-Deon Government to fund Mukurumanda-Tsak Road project. The project worth K26m as announced by Works Minister Fransis Awesa at Wapenamanda head quarters in 2013.

The road project is undertaken by Kay Star construction Company while the bridge projects are managed by Warenge Komba Foundation Inc.
