Papua New Guinea’s Prime Minister and Minister for Sports,  Peter O’Neill , has extended the Nation’s condolences to the family and teammates of the Late Kato Otio.

“It is with shock and great sadness that we have learned of the death of Kato Otio,” the Prime Minister said.

“I extend the condolences of the people of our Nation to the family and teammates of the Late Kato Otio, as we share your grief.

“The passing of someone so young, so fit and with so much promise, is hard to come to terms with.

“We remember his courage and tenacity as rugby league star, and as an all-round athlete.

“The Nation will learn more of the health conditions that took the life of the Late Kato Otio.

"We must be patient and as we mourn this sudden passing, and commemorate the life of an outstanding Papua New Guinean.”
