Pacific International Hospital acting chief executive officer Dr Amyna Sultan confirmed the death of the two-term parliamentarian but declined to give the cause of his death.
“No! Sorry, that would breach patient confidentiality,” Dr Sultan told Loop PNG.
Late Nape after consecutive terms as the Member Sinasina Yonggumgl lost the Chimbu electorate seat in the 2012 National General Elections to Kerenga Kua.
He twice served as the Speaker of Parliament after being declared as a first term MP after the 2002 elections.
