Wasu LLG grants being misused president claims

The Wasu Local Level Government (WLLG) office is not operating normally, says Petrus Yasing, WLLG president.

The LLG is situated in the Tewai Siassi district of Morobe Province.

Yasing revealed that the 2013 – 2014 LLG service improvement program grants of K500,000 were disbursed but the grants are still parked at the district treasury operating account or must have been misused.

“Wasu is in bad condition. There is completely no funding for Wasu LLG to operate.

“WLLG is no longer in operations and we want an audit team from the National Government or Morobe Provincial Administration to do a thorough investigation to the operation of the Tewai Siassi and shut down the Sialum government station,” Yasing said.

The president added that the LLG office is now operating on credit.  

“It is very difficult to handle such a situation. All our funds are parked in the district treasury.

“When we go to Sialum, nobody wants to see us. They tell us that the CEO went to Finschhafen or district treasurer went to Lae,” Yasing said.
