The party executives, in a meeting this morning in Port Moresby, made the announcement.

Gure’s appointment comes following the tragic passing of party founder and leader, and Deputy Prime Minister Sam Basil. Basil, who was Member of Parliament for Wau/Bulolo, died in a vehicle accident along the Lae-Bulolo Highway last week. 

The body of the late DPM was flown into Port Moresby yesterday evening and lies in the funeral home.

A Lie in State ceremony will be held for him tomorrow, Tuesday 17th May, 2022.

Societies place emphasis on education: Gure

This was the message Rigo MP, Lekwa Gure, imparted to the administration and the graduands at the 9th graduation of the David Kini School of Theology and Mission at Kwikila Station recently.

He listed the seven pillars of western wisdom; Meritocracy, Free Market Economy, Science and Technology, Pragmatism, Culture of Peace, Rule of Law and Education as important for the church to adopt and practice in its leadership and management if it wishes to have quality membership and leadership.

​Women should head some sectors: Gure

He pointed this out during his transitional brief recently at Kwikila town, the heart of Rigo district.

During the event, the MP and his wife Vavine noted that most of the presenters (coordinators/sectoral heads) that day were men, with the exception of only one woman.

“Here we are talking about gender equity. Perhaps in the district administration, we should look at some of the positions to have women as the head of those sectors,” says MP Gure.
