Late Huhume finally laid to rest

Over 3 months after her passing, Papua New Guinea’s flag designer, the late Susan Karike-Huhume, has finally been put to rest.

The late flag designer was buried this afternoon at the Nine-Mile cemetery, outside Port Moresby, in a small ceremony. The event was attended by family members, relatives and members of the Urban Youth Employment Project.

The UYEP took charge of her burial, including the tomb design, while her funeral was held two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, the late Huhume’s family, from Gulf Province, are disappointed with the way the State has treated the pride of Meii village.

They are now calling on the government to start a new competition and get a new flag.

“Let the old flag go down with our mom,” niece Christine Epe told Loop PNG.

Susan Karike-Huhume passed away on the afternoon of April 11 at the Port Moresby General Hospital.
