Men attempted to steal district vehicles: MP

The MP said seven men were arrested by Madang Police on Friday (January 26) when they stormed into the district head office and “illegally” took two of its Toyota LandCruiser.

The vehicles were earlier confiscated by the district authority and impounded at the office.

Uguro said the suspects were chased by Police and later apprehended.

Police also took the vehicles.    

Last year, the Usino-Bundi District Development Authority (UBDDA) made a decision to recoup all district assets, including vehicles and machineries.

Usino-Bundi needs proper audit: MP

Following submissions of Usino-Bundi acquittal reports from 2015 and 2016, Usino-Bundi MP Jimmy Uguro claims there were a lot of discrepancies.

He said he has written to the Secretary for Department of Implementation and Rural Development to send a team to the district to carry out proper audit.

The MP believes a number of projects have been left incomplete hence the audit will help the current administration identify these projects and complete them.
