Is Minister Ben Micah living at the Grand Papua hotel?

Ben MicahMinister for State Owned Enterprises, Ben Micah, is alleged to be living at the tax payers expense in a K2,500 per night suite at the Grand Papua hotel in Port Moresby.

Mr Micah is no stranger to allegations of corruption in public office.

Can anyone confirm or deny this latest allegation?

      Has anyone noticed…but every time Ben Micah conducts and interview he is at the Grand Papua . I thinks it’s high time social media started kicking up a stink about this again. That’s if in deed he is staying there again. Even if he and other Pollies are there for meetings only, surely they have government offices to have meetings. Not the swankiest hotel in pom. Who pays for this?!

    This guy is literally a FAT CAT! Not at all surprised about this, in fact I’m sure this was reported earlier. Ben Micah is the epitome of everything wrong in this country. While everyday Papua New Guineans are suffering Mr. Micah is living it up at the Grand Papua and at 5 star hotels across the globe, at the same time running PNG’s SOEs further into the ground. Peter O’Neill needs to be ashamed of himself for hiring such a corrupt thug!

    Peter O’Neil is not blind to have him look after the business arm of PNG/State, knowing very well what he does and has been doing during the Mekere days. Selling government businesses, squandering millions of kina, forcing SOEs into liquidation, bringing in cronies to manage SOEs,,etc.. For him to live at Grand Papua is not a surprise, what more do have to say, forget it. Ask Tony Kori why he resigned, why did Thomas Abe got kicked and there are more to it than living at Grand Papua.

    It’s true. I’ve seen the honourable Minister residing at the GP. I’ve stayed there a couple of times and seen him in the mornings jump into his waiting ministerial car, followed by his entourage of body guards. it just stinks! So much for opening new health clinics around rural areas outside of Kavieng and not having the funding to stock the shelves with basic medicines. A 2500.00 kina night at the GP could buy one months supply of medicines for one clinic.

    What else do we expect from politicians in this country??? CORRUPTION ofcourse! Every one of these rats get into the haus tambaran (suppose to be our parliament) and start feeding on anything they can land their hand on and make structural decisions to serve their purpose, NOT the constituents they are suppose to be representing..Talk about demi Gods, jeesh, these lot are just gonne screw these country upside down by the time their 5 years are over. Pray God is on our side!!!
