Peter O'Neill pays his respects to the late Susuve Laumaea

Staff Reporter

He worked with various government agencies, including the Prime Minister's department, before his death.
 
He was working as speechwriter and senior political adviser (media relations) to the Prime Minister Peter O'Neill and was also a columnist with the weekly Sunday Chronicle based in Port Moresby.
 
Attending Laumaea's funeral last week, O'Neill said he had a long working relationship with Laumaea, whom he first me in the 1980s.
 
"He was a great writer and the standards he has set in journalism in this country are beyond a lot of the writing we have today.
 
"His writing was always fair, factual and always well researched, and that is how Susuve and many others have touched lives during that era. We were very proud to have him as a member of our team in government.
 
"I know that many of my colleagues who are in their electorates throughout the country, and of course many of his workmates, will share with me that Susuve was a very strong contributor to many of the policies that we have developed in the country."
