JIMMY Drekore, chairman of the Crocodile Prize Organisation and founder of the Simbu Children Foundation, was last night named PNG’s Digicel Man of Honour at a glittering award night in Port Moresby.
This is a great tribute to Jimmy – bush poet extraordinaire – and the people of Simbu who have supported him in his philanthropic work.
“I am humbled and pleased,” Jimmy said when he was declared the 2014 Digicel Man of Honour for 2014.
“Thank you for the words of encouragement and support all the way through...moneaa wakai we!”
One of Jimmy’s vocal supporters, Mathias Kin, said, “Yes, the man won the highest award in the land. We are all happy for him.”
Mathias added that a contingent from Simbu will travel to Goroka on Monday to receive him.
