Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) holds haus krai for Sir Michael in Port Vila, Vanuatu

In a show of solidarity with the people and Government of the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, the Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic of Vanuatu Ismael Kalsakau today (5th March) officially marked the commencement of the week-long “Haus Krai” to honour the late Grand Chief Sir Michael Thomas Somare, Founding Father of the Independent State of Papua New Guinea and one of the Founding Fathers of the Melanesian Spearhead Group.

The Haus Krai, as a symbol of grief in the Papua New Guinea culture, is an area in the MSG Secretariat especially demarcated for the public to pay their respects to the late Grand Chief Sir Michael Thomas Somare.

The public are encouraged to visit the MSG Secretariat to lay wreaths and sign the Condolence book until Friday, 12 March.

    Actions speak volumes of this great man. A naturally born leader. Whose charisma will forever live on. The spirit of Melanesia will only be broken if we allow it. Let us continue to maintain this bond and unity as our forefathers including our late Great Grand Chief have done.
