Arore tries to cover up for Delilah Gore
Ijivitari MP, David Arore, has come out publicly in defense of Community Development Minister, Delilah Gore, saying Gore was not involved in the purported vote of no confidence motion again Oro’s legitimate governor, Gary Juffa. Speaking to the Post Courier, Arore described the take over as “straight Oro politics.”
This is however contrary to glaring evidence in the form of payment records of K17,000 to the Grand Papua Hotel in Port Moresby where seven local level government presidents were accommodated.
Despite efforts to distance Gore from the unrecognized vote in Popondetta, the Gore has continued to prove that she cannot be trusted. In a news conference last week, the Minister lied about the K17,000 payment saying she had no knowledge of the payment despite the evidence at hand.
Gore also paid, using ministerial funds, for the Southern Region police taskforce to be present in Popondetta during the protest that saw the usurping of the governor’s post.
It is now understood the Chief Secretary, Sir Manasupe Zurenuoc, has summoned the Community Development Secretary, Anna Solomon, to explain why she assisted the Minister in lying during a public news conference last week.
