Amanda Masono Getsi

Father-daughter team carve historical path

Thirty-seven-year-old Amanda Getsi now joins her father, Raymond Masono, in the fourth House of Representatives.

Getsi will, for the first time, represent the women of North Bougainville while her father will serve another term as the Atolls MP.

She is the first Carteret islander to become a lawyer, the first from the islands to gain a master degree in law and the first female to become an MP.

After the inauguration on Tuesday, Getsi and her father became the first father-daughter team in the Bougainville House of Representatives.
