ANOTHER prominent Papua New Guinean was pronounced dead this morning.
He is the country’s former Chief Secretary Sir Manasupe Zurenuoc.
Sir Manasupe retired from his post early last year due to health reasons as he was suffering from a rare Parkinson’s disease.
He was one of the longest serving Chief Secretary until his retirement.
In honouring his services, the government renamed the refurbished NEC and PM’s office as Sir Manasupe Haus.
His death was confirmed by immediate family members at his home in Lae, Morobe Province.
More details on the death to follow.
The passing of Sir Manasupe came shortly after the death of prominent radio broadcaster Roger Hau’ofa, who passed away at the weekend.
The passing of these two great man means a great loss to the nation and mostly their immediate friends and family.
