Parkop on Alu Video

NCD Governor, Powes Parkop, has dubbed the video of the former city Manager Leslie Alu as a set up interview.

The Governor says the leak in information of monthly funds for the Yoga guru, Fazilah Bazari can be acquitted for before the commission.

The governor although refusing to comment on the video – stated that he has nothing to hide and the monthly payment of money which stands at a K3 million annual payment is commissioned for.

The governor was contacted by this newsroom in relation to a leaked video posted on a social media page, PNG Blogs, showing the former NCD city manager Lesie Alu being interviewed.

From the footage it appears that Mr Alu is unaware that he is on camera.

In the video the former city manager reveals that the Yoga Guru is paid K250 thousand monthly for Yoga and public relations.

Meantime, when contacted Governor Parkop refused to respond, stating that the interview was set up, however he noted all documents relating to engagement, acquittals and the result of the programs are before the commission which can be accessed to properly find out the truth.

 “We have a very successful program, addressing issues that need more resources than we are spending.

“As part of developing the city and PNG we can’t just build infrastructure, we need to invest in mindset change, health especially preventive health care”.

“That’s what the program is about if people care to see”, he said.

He then states, he has no hesitation – but this is a program that he is personally involved in, as he walks and takes part in yoga, hence he holds the program managers to high standards ensuring they produce results as well as produce monthly acquittals.
