ON the last Sunday of November, Pastor Uzzaiah Movo was laid to rest in Arawa, Central Bougainville.
Pastor Movo was an important figure in the development of Bougainville. As a church leader before and after the Bougainville civil war, he was a role model and part of the Bougainville peace building and government process.
According to Pastor Francis Munau, it was Pastor Movo who dedicated the Bougainville Constitution and affirmed Bougainville as a Christian region in God’s hands.
Pastor Movo was also a council member of the Arawa Urban Council committee. He exercised positive influence over people’s lives as a church and community leader.
