090517KAMUAI REMOVED FROM OFFICE
By Aloysius Laukai
The controversial Buin District Executive Manager, PETER KAMUAI was forced out of the Buin District Office by former combatants claiming to be illegally in office.
The Executive Manager was appointed by the ABG last year to replace the substantive position holder, JOHN ITANU despite advise from the Human Resource Department claiming that the position was not advertised and the person appointed was from Education Department and not an administrative position holder.
The former combatants gave Seven reasons for removing the Executive Manager this morning.
One, that the appointment was in conflict with various sections of the Bougainville Public Service Act there he is not a legitimate Executive Manager.
Two, illegal appointment was blocking the service delivery by MR. ITANU and his officers.
Three, Officers are not attending to official duties because of this impasse.
Four, that his continued presence has lowered the morale of officers.
Five, Your illegal appointment has caused division amongst the officers.
Six, Your illegal appointment has given birth to future corrupt appointments, corrupting Public service laws and promoting corrupt deals.
And Seven, Bougainville has fought this war to institute a civilian government and not a dictator government. Your appointment is a dictatorship move fuelled by greed, power and money.
