The Central Bougainville Ex-combatants yesterday called on the Autonomous Bougainville Government to work on Projects that will benefit Bougainville and not just Panguna landowners.
In a signed document signed by five former combatants, Moses Pipiro, Chris Uma,Ishmael Toroama, James Onato and director of Ex-combatants, Noah Doko, the ex-combatants said that the ABG was perceived to be using divide and rule tactic with the Panguna issue.
They said that they were not happy that the ABG was only interested in the Panguna landowners.
The Ex-Combatants said that Panguna mine belongs to all Bougainvilleans therefore it cannot be talked about with only the Panguna Landowners, SML or Associations.
They also questioned why the Mining Policy was taking too long to enact.
New Dawn FM understands that the ABG completed all consultations in North, Central and South Bougainville and was about to have the final one in Panguna
