PM O'Neill pays his respects to a media giant

The Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill  has expressed sadness and extended condolences to the family of Roger Hau'ofa following the passing of the renowned radio presenter over the weekend.

Roger Hau’ofa graced the airways with his unique style for more than 50 years and became one of the most prominent voices in our country due to his dedication to the art of radio and love for Papua New Guinea.

"Mr Hau’ofa was a giant of media in our nation, and a true gentleman in his nature,” the Prime Minister said.

“Roger was tough in his interview style, fair in his questions and he always had the latest information on the topics that he was discussing.

“For nearly fifty years we have heard Roger’s distinctive voice as he has interviewed Prime Ministers and Ministers, community leaders and the grassroots people of our nation.

“His presence will be terribly missed by radio listeners around the country.”

The Prime Minister said Roger Hau’ofa’s courage was evident right to the end. “Roger’s insistence that he return to his village of Iare, in Central, to see out his last days is testament to his bravery and fortitude.

“We will miss Roger Hau’ofa from our radio airways, and we will miss him as a truly great Papua New Guinean."
