Kulang warns public servants not to violate the system

This follows the reappointment of a senior public servant with performance issues at the National Museum and Art Gallery (NMAG).

The acting appointment was made this week without the Minister being present at the Ministerial Executive Appointment Commitment (MEAC).

Kulang said in a media conference today that he has not been properly and effectively consulted as required by Section 6 of the principal law; Regulatory State Authorities Act 2004.

He said the Board of Trustees deliberately avoided invoking Section 4 of the RSA Act 2004.

Gembogl Hydro Power Project receives environment permit

The project involves the construction of a 6 megawatts (MW) hydro power facility on the upper reaches of the Simbu River, and aims to supply power to the PNG Power Limited grid through the power purchase agreement.

The project has a very strong support from the Simbu Provincial Government, the Kundiawa-Gembogl District and landowners.

The developer, AG Investment Limited has significant experience in PNG and overseas in developing construction and hydro power projects.

The application was submitted to CEPA in March this year.
