Dear Editor – It appeared in a sheep skin, not knowing that it was a wolf, it took advantage of our traditional values by using us traditional chiefs to promote their unfulfilled manifesto under the banner of three 3Cs – CUSTOM, CULTURE and CHURCH to have the support and draw voters attention, assuming they would win the majority seats, at the end of the day, only one official Kadere party candidate, who was a former MP himself won his seat in east Are’are constituency.
It was indeed a total disgrace for the more than 20 Kadere partry candidates including the party wing leader Peter Boyers who also contested – a result which indicates poor leadership at the front stage.
The president and the wing leader of the Kadere party during the launching of the party’s manifesto had been very vocal on the party’s three Cs policy, which gave false hopes for us traditional chiefs and church leaders.
On the contrast, at the initial formation of the DCCG the party has managed to lure eight other independent members to join the kadere party making it to a total of nine members to team up with other parties to form the government, hoping that the three Cs policy of the party would be included in the DCC Government’s national policy which was not happening at all, the chiefs and church leaders has been used as drumsticks just to foster the selfish wish of the president Alfred Legua and the wing leader Mr Boyers.
We found no truth in them, even their mobile numbers were changed since three weeks prior to the 20I4 national election to date.
The purpose of writing this article in the media is based on these following grounds:
A/ We, the chiefs of Malaita province who had been used to promote the Kadere party’s manifesto during the launching in various constituencies were very upset and will be seeking for means of customary settlement from them for a non-rewardable exhibition of our valuable customs and cultures without recognition as promised by the Kadere party.
b/ We, the chiefs and church leaders of those respective constituencies in Malaita Province are condemning such party’s false manifesto, and not to use them any more for any political campaign in the near future
c/The Kadere party is asked to reconcile with the chiefs and church leaders in the 9 constituencies in Malaita province before 20I8 national general election, if nothing happens as requested, the Kadere party will not step into the shores of Malaita province comes 20I8, we will not tolerate and entertain such CON parties next time.
d/ The Kadere party is also asked to settle its outstanding dues with its 20I4 contestants as promised immediately before 20I8 national election as a matter of concerned as their clients are still waiting for what has been promised to them. Failure to do so will result in legal resolution, thus also set a very bad precedent and negative consequences for a party which promised to work consistently until 20I8 national general election.
Finally, the Kadere party is asked to clean up its backyard before 20I8 or else your affiliates are those ones that will tarnish your integrity.
We wish the present parliament sitting debate and pass the corruption bill, because we believed that DISHONESTY is the root cause of all acts of corruption.
The chiefs of Malaita province like any other Solomon islanders supported the corruption bill and want to see it pass on the floor of parliament.
