300411 ONE MILLION KINA FLOATED
By Aloysius Laukai
The controversial MV SANKAMAP 2 floated out of the Buka Passage anchorage lastn night with noone on board.
Someone must have cut off its anchors to let it float past Buka town on the passage towards Ieta village.
It was stucked on the reef just out the main entrance when Aloysius Laukai took this picture this morning.
The former ABG minister who bought this boat is now the candidate for the North Bougainville Byelections
Two years ago another Million Kina Fishing Boat bought by the then Regional Member Leo Hannett sank just off the Taiof Island.
The former Regional member is now the Justice Minister for the Autonomous Bougainville Government.
There is another similar boat MV Buka Queen bought by the current member that has never left the passage and still anchored off the Sohano Island.
