FOUNDING FATHER, Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare paid homage to PNG’s 36 years of independence late last week as he again left for Singapore for a medical check.
He also apologised to his East Sepik people and the rest of the country for his prolonged absence.
According to the PNG National Broadcasting Commission, Sir Michael’s political career appears far from over.
He is said to have “found strength in his hospitalisation and sacking as a member of parliament” and has vowed to continue serving Papua New Guinea.
