By Jeffrey Wall, published 26/2/2021

While I never worked for him in his office as Prime Minister I did form a good association with him over the years since I first went to PNG in 1978.

A good man who would never have sold his soul/the country to China for a proverbial forty pieces of silver.

Yes, Michael Somare was certainly a Grand Chief for the PNG people. Unfortunaly too few of Sir Michael's calibre come along to serve fledgling nations like PNG. RIP Michael Somare.

Al,
Itís thirty pieces of silver.

Or are you accounting for inflation over two thousand years?
