Final respects for late Sape

She was a woman driven by passion and motivation to bring change into the lives of women in Papua New Guinea.

This was one of the best accolades bestowed on renowned businesswoman and woman leader, who founded the first Women in Business bank, the late Janet Sape.

The final respects were paid in her honour at the CRC Bethel Centre at Waigani today.

The church was filled with people, not only relatives but those whose lives were impacted one way or another by this great woman.

Among them were representatives from different organisations, including the US Embassy, who described the great woman leader as passionate and self-motivated; a strong leader who rose up against all odds.

The NCD governor’s wife, Jean Parkop, was also present to pay her respects. She described the late Sape as a zealous woman leader.

The late businesswoman fell ill before passing away late last month.
