Peter O’Neill and his two briefcase carriers, Mickey Malabag and David Arore, turned tail and ran today in Popondetta after a group of people, including women and children turned up with placards asking important unanswered questions.
They refused to attend the official opening of the Popondetta hospital with Malabag citing “security issues” and that “uninvited politicians” like Gary Juffa, had come to ‘disrupt’ the opening.
The truth is that they were too scared to face the questions by people. They wanted smooth sailing and to take credit for service delivery before people go to the polls. What people must know is that money has not been paid and the provincial government has struggled to make ends meet.
This is what scared them off…people who wanted answers.
