Papua New Guinea

That time I had breakfast with former PNG PM Peter O’Neill

Passing through Port Moresby en route to my story on the West Papua border, The Guardian asked whether I might be able to get a one-on-one with the former PM, at that stage battling corruption allegations (again). Rather to my surprise, we met for breakfast. Rather to his surprise, I suspect, it got a bit cranky, when I challenged his take on his legacy on health, education, infrastructure and economics. At the end he asked me whether I would send him a copy of the draft article. No, I said. I would not be doing that. Link here.
