Prime Minister Peter O’Neil’s first policy initiative is to cut costs by selling off the government’s K120m executive falcon jet. However, this move may be more than just a cost cutting exercise but can also be seen as a symbol of strength and power.
The move can be translated as a symbol of grounding the former regime whose flagship was the jet – clipping their wings, so to speak.
Another subject that will probably keep people talking for days is the pictures on our two dailies, The National and the Post Courier, both with front page news of the upcoming sale. Unfortunately, there are two different pictures of the same jet. Which one is it?
