  1. Can’t believe how they accumulated Thier wealth and status this fast, especially, when they are all politicians.

  2. The secret to become a wealthiest person in Papua New Guinea is to become a politician and be the Prime Minister.

  3. Alois Boyd Patma.

    I doubt that this holds any credible background and supporting facts. This record can be best termed as ” The 10 Richest Politicians in Papua New Guinea”.

    1. If the secret of becoming a wealthiest person in PNG is become a politician, than why the longest serving politician, our founding father, Late Sir Micheal Somare is not in this group?
