Sir Koitaga Mano passes on at 86

By Pitz Solo Kaulga

Late Sir Koitaga Mano was born in 1930 and died peacefully at the age of 86 at his home in Tamal village in Tambul District, Western Highlands Province. Sir Mano was the Member of Parliament in the House of Assembly in 1964. In 2008, he was awarded the Queen’s Medal for his contribution to the country.
Late Sir Koitaga Mano hails from Komolga Tribe in the Lower Kagual District in Tambul Nebilyer. He is survived by his children, grandchildren and grand-grandchildren.  
He was a strong believer of hard-working and honesty. He once said corruption is a thing never known before when he was the Representative of House of Assembly (now Member of Parliament). 
During his term, he represent Tambul-Nebilyer/Kagua-Pangia/Ialibu/Kandep (all as one at that time) in the Parliament. He was the translator, then to Road Foreman and later being a Parliamentarian – in all these journey, he said he was recommended from one to next based on his simple honesty. He didn’t apply/request – it was served to him/asked to. 
Upholding the principles of honesty with dignity and leaving behind integrity as a legacy is what he left behind for the generations to come. The challenge is now with Tambul-Nebilyer/WHP and PNG Leaders to follow his footsteps when corruption becomes a known issue today.
