 OPPOSITION leader Belden Namah wants to make peace with East Sepik Governor Sir Michael Somare and the people of the province.

The Vanimo-Green MP revealed this during the funeral service for Angoram MP Ludwig Schulze at the Catholic church at Angoram government station last Thursday.

Namah told more than 1,000 people that he wanted reconciliation to take place as it was good for leaders to work together.

He passed his condolences to the family of Schulze and all the people of Angoram, saying the former leader was a very dedicated and committed opposition MP.

“It is a great loss for the people of Angoram because your late MP had vision and really wanted to deliver basic government services but unfortunately this will not eventuate,” he said. 

Namah assured the people of Angoram that his PNG Party would not endorse a candidate for the by-election as a sign of respect for the late MP.

“In this by-election, I want you people of Angoram to vote for a good person so that you will see government services which you have been waiting for,” he said. 

Schulze’s parents were from Kono village in New Ireland and Germany.

Accompanying Namah were deputy opposition leader and Bulolo MP Sam Basil, Huon MP Ross Seymour and Madang Governor Jim Kas.

Schulze was laid to rest at his residential area in Angoram last Thursday afternoon.
