Gore lies about misuse of fund, blames Arore for Juffa removal plot

October 31, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Delilah GoreHigher Education Minister and Sohe MP, Delilah Gore has blatantly lied in the media about payments made by her Ministry  to facilitate the vote of no confidence against Gary Juffa.

Speaking  in a press conference yesterday, Delilah Gore said she had no knowledge of the K17,000 payment that was made to the Grand Papua Hotel  for accommodation expenses in the days leading up the Gary Juffa’s removal as Oro Governor. In the same breath, she pointed the finger of blame at Ijivitari MP David Arore.

“My department is in the clear,”  she said. “I am not in any way involved contrary to what the Ivivitari MP, David Arore has claimed.”

But Gore’s statements come  a day after evidence was posted on various news media websites that showed payments made by the Ministry of Community Development to the Grand Papua Hotel.

Sources close to Minister Gore confirm the legitimacy of the documents and the dates and  purpose of the payments.  

Yesterday, Governor Juffa blasted Gore over the payments stating that the  K17,000 was used to accommodate and pay local level government presidents who plotted the vote of no confidence motion against  him.

In a desperate attempt not to offend Juffa or Arore, Delilah Gore maintained she remained neutral in the turmoil despite her cozy  association with David Arore during the vote of no confidence motion in Popondetta just days ago.

“My department has nothing to do with Oro politics and I want to clear our name in this.”

Governor Juffa meanwhile will be tendering those documents to fraud investigators in the coming days.

    It is interesting to hear that Gore was the former Ijivitari district treasurer before she contested the PNG 2012 National Election and become the Sohe MP. If this is true, then she did arose from the bed of roses where ‘legalised’ Arore sleeps in. Think and act alike and aspire for the same thing.
