Vale: Late Bunu Mwatapa, Commander, Maritime and Surveillance, Navy, PNG Defence Force.

We are extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Bunu in the early hours of Saturday morning. CFK wishes to send its deepest condolences to his wife Iru and their children. We have very fond memories of spending time with the family in Canberra when they visited Tomwaya, as well as meeting up with the family when we visited Kiriwina during our VBA training sessions over the years.

PNGDF has lost one of its fine officers and Trobriand Islanders have lost a leader and Kavataria Village has lost one of its brilliant and well respected sons.
