Momis Celebrates Bougainville Independence Day with Masta

We hear on the grapevine that President John Momis celebrated the anniversary of Bougainville’s unilateral declaration of independence by flying to Cairns, to sell off more of the island’s resources to his pals in Australia.

The event was facilitated by Godfrey Mantle a QLD property developer, and prolific donor to both the Liberals and ALP. Mantle runs the Mantle Group which plans to open plantations across Bougainville with the help of the company’s Director Sam Akoitai, former MP for Central Bougainville and Rio Tinto cheerleader.

So while the ABG serially ignores the cries of Bougainville’s smallholder farmers for basic support services, the President is off recreating the grand old colonial days, where indentured labourers worked and died in the fields, while masta cracked the whip from the shade of his veranda.

And of course it would seem never far from Momis is his friend at BCL, Peter Taylor – once again evidence of what a formidable ‘critic’ Momis is of Rio Tinto (as the President recently claimed in a press release).

Let the sell-off begin!!

    May be all leaders, including President Momis, should treat this kind of defecating nonsense with the same kind of contempt that Prime Minister O’Neill dismisses comments against his leadership in local blogs such as pngexposed. PM has A country to run than waste his time defending himself against spurious nonsense, so too President Momis.
