He was the second member of the House to die in the last one year following the demise of a lawmaker who represented Pankshin South State Constituency in the Assembly, Henry Longs, in November last year.

In a condolence message to the House, Governor Simon Lalong described the late lawmaker as “selfless and committed member of the House who tried to address challenges of his constituents.”
