    We cannot say we are pushing back against corruption by believing those “names and titles” have to “fix the problem”. Unfortunately not enough people in PNG see the fight against corruption to be anything to do with them individually. The truth is until the people of PNG say no more nothing will change. A few voices is hardly heard many voices get attention.

    Unfortunately I fail to see how these names with their titles have made an impact on the majority of our population. Some of these names have been around for awhile holding down key positions of responsibility.

    I hope these who carry the titles contribute meaningfully to the vision of the Marape government if taking back PNG.
