PNG government spending K8 million to entertain one of the world’s richest men
The PNG government is spending K8 million of YOUR tax payers money to prepare for the visit of Prince Charles in November
While PNG maternal mortality rates are among the worst in the world and school and health facilities cry out for basic supplies, K8 million is being wasted on one of the world’s richest men.
Charles is the owner of the vast Duchy of Cornwall estate in the UK, which stretches over 135,000 acres across 23 counties mainly in the south-west of England. The estate is estimated to be worth more than $1 billion and provides Charles with an annual income of over $50 million.
But rather than providing basic services for the women and children of PNG this is what Peter O’Neill and his government is choosing to spend YOUR money on:
- Cleaning seats at Sir Hubert Murray stadium.
- Buying new uniforms for soldiers from Moem Barracks
- Fixing the lane in the highway on whichCharles will travel from the airport.
- Buying new escort vehicles.
