Professor John Kola

Professor Kola’s death shocks UPNG chemistry strand

Late Professor Kola was UPNG’s former head of chemistry. Under special arrangements agreed to between the interim council of the University of Goroka and the management of UPNG, he was appointed the acting vice-chancellor of UOG last year.

“Just heard the news and cannot accept it. PNG has lost another great man,” said the late Kola’s former student Patricia Hagali, who is now a chemistry tutor at UPNG.
