​DSIP fund not acquitted: Micah

​About 65 percent of the District Services Improvement Program (DSIP) funds have not been acquitted.

Former Minister for State Enterprises and Kavieng MP, Ben Micah, told Loop PNG that most districts, including his own (Kavieng), have not been acquitted since 2013.

Micah was responding to Prime Minister Peter O’Neill’s statement in regard to the Kavieng DSIP.

O’Neill raised serious questions about what happened to the more than K40 million delivered to the Kavieng District over the past four years.

“It is within my right to say that there is no evidence of development from the more than K40 million in DSIP delivered to the Kaving District over the past four years,” PM O’Neill said.
“Why has the K40 million given to the Kavieng District not spent on improving Kavieng?

However, Micah called on O’Neill to stop fooling the people of this nation.

“He is not in a good position to make such statements as he doesn’t know Kavieng well like I do.

“Peter O’Neill will not vote for me and I am confident to return to Parliament because of what I have done for my people.”

Micah added that the people of Kavieng have the last say.
