Prime Minister James Marape Declares 14-Day State of Emergency for Port Moresby

In a shocking turn of events, Prime Minister James Marape has announced a 14-day State of Emergency for the Nation’s Capital in Papua New Guinea. This unprecedented decision comes on the heels of a series of critical payroll configuration errors that have marred the implementation of the 2024 Budget Approved Tax Threshold.

The magnitude of these errors has forced the Prime Minister to take swift and decisive action. In a move that has sent shockwaves through the nation, four high-ranking departmental heads have been suspended for the duration of the State of Emergency. Among those facing suspension are Commissioner of Police David Manning, DPM Secretary Taies Sansan, Finance Secretary Sam Penias, and Treasury Secretary Andrew Oaeke.

This development has left the public in a state of disbelief, as these officials, responsible for crucial departments, now find themselves temporarily relieved of their duties. The Prime Minister’s Office, however, has remained tight-lipped regarding specific details surrounding the nature of the payroll configuration errors.

The gravity of this situation cannot be overstated, and the nation is grappling with the implications of this sudden State of Emergency. As citizens await further information, the live coverage of this breaking news is sending ripples through Papua New Guinea, dominating headlines with the urgency of the situation.
