Chief Minister Michael Somare, Visits Angoram, Feb. 1973

Komunti, made a full report of this visit. You can imagine what an occasion this was. Here was one of the sons of the sub-district returning to the town as the country’s first Chief Minister. At this stage, Michael appeared like an inspired and idealist leader as well as a man with a lot of personal charm. At the time his mother and father lived in Angoram and were both liked and highly respected. I wonder if he fully realized what he was taking on and how he was being used by the metropolitan power, Australia, to divest itself of its colonial possession.
