Marape: You can’t force people to be violent. Take your violence to your electorate please.
Among his usual debates on politics, Don Polye went very low in Tari to invite thuggery and violence by asking people to remove, tear and burn all PNC red shirts and caps.
The Opposition Leader arrived in Tari town last week inciting violence and arguments instead of peace and offering alternate government policies.
“We have a fragile society in Hela, and we are trying to promote peace despite our own differences in Hela, yet Polye, who says he has concern for Hela, stirs trouble. What kind of leadership is this?” stated James Marape.
“I ask Polye, a honest question as an equally mandated leader of my Huli people; you have been the long serving minister for works, transport and civil aviation, you have been foreign minister, higher education minister and treasury and Finance Ministers in 13 years since 2002. What have you started in Hela that you want to complete?” Mr Marape asked.
Mr Marape has taken to his Tari Pori Development Forum to rebut much of Polye’s arguments in Tari last Friday.
He is appealing for Hela to rise above petty politics and allow peace to prevail, and asks Hela people to choose leaders without asking for money or voting for a tribal candidate.
Meanwhile after Don’s immature campaigning, he was then chased away after he got on his vehicle. All he did was psyched the crowd up, apart from that, nothing good came out from his violent talk.
