RICHARD Mulou, the late provincial police commander of New Ireland, was described as a “good and committed policeman.”
In a written statement delivered by Assistant Commissioner of Police Francis Tokura, Police Commissioner Tom Kulunga told Mulou’s funeral service at the Sione Kami Memorial church, in Gordon, Port Moresby ,that Moulou had been a hard worker and had a good career with the force.
Kulunga said Mulou’s death was unfortunate but it was something no one had control over except God.
Pastor Damaro Kadasa of the Korobosea Seventh-Day Adventist church said Mulou was an important member of the church and had helped it in many ways.
“He is a man who loves God and his work,” he said.
He said everyone had a calling and Mulou’s calling was to be a policeman.
Family members, friends and colleagues from the country and overseas attended the funeral.
Mulou, 51, from Tong Island, Manus, joined the police force in 1986 after graduating with a diploma in journalism in 1980.
From 1987-1990, he was officer-in-charge of the Police Media Unit.
He rose through the ranks until appointed chief superintendent.
His last post was as New Ireland provincial police commander.
He died on July 23 after a short illness and is survived by sons Eddie Kuol, 16, and Junior Richard Mulou, 14. His body leaves today for Tong Island, Manus.
