Prime Minister James Marape paying his respects to Late Deputy Prime Minister Sam Basil in Port Moresby yesterday. Marape during his tribute at the funeral wept as he read out the last exchange of text messages between himself and his deputy. “Basil’s unrelenting character to never give up, pushed him to be self-sufficient, creative and a self-starter,” Marape said. Basil’s casket will depart Port Moresby for Lae today.
