Papua New Guineans must all know the history and learn about the Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare’s blueprint in setting the course for PNG to become independent in 1975.

This will be possible with the creation of a special SOMARE FOUNDATION, focused on this iconic man and specific national historical references to him and those who helped in those early days.

The announcement for this Somare Foundation was made by a heavy-hearted Prime Minister James Marape, who has tasked himself to be personally involved in the funeral arrangements of PNG’s late founding father, and a mentor and friend to him.

Marape said that since the history of PNG is intertwined with the late Sir Michael, and as specific national historical status will be conferred through the Somare Foundation, the National Museum will be taking charge of the matter.
