The waters of the Sepik River are an elixir of political life!

It wasn’t Sogeri Secondary School that launched the political life of Sir Michael Somare or Cambridge University, Michael Johnson’s political endeavours, nor was it the London School of Economics, that propelled Ben Sana Wyatt into State politics but the waters of the Sepik River.

Sir Michael Somare, PM of PNG and his parents Ludwig Somare Sana and Painari all drank deeply of the Sepik River waters.

Michael Johnson, former member of the Federal Electorate of Ryan in Queensland and the son of Peter and Julie Johnson who brought Michael up on the banks of the Sepik River all drank of the waters.

 Ben Sana Wyatt, MLA, State member of Victoria Park in Western Australia whose parents, Cedric and Janine Wyatt, lived for years on and near the Sepik River are all familiar with the waters of the Sepik.

 All the parents of these political figures consumed vast quantities of Sepik River water and it is this that gave their offspring the fortitude to pursue their political lives.

    MMM! quite possibly, however, imbibing deeply of the waters of the mighty Sepik only seemed to give me a dose of the you know whats!!
    Perhaps it was what one mixed with it, on those languid evenings at the ANGORAM CLUB.
    BUT, if your proposition is correct, the genetic implications alone are staggering.
    Cheers, Alpal
