Nanong Gideon Ahe isn’t a name many know -but he was one of those people who spent time with the Late Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare during their days as students.

Nanong paid tribute to the late Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare saying he was always vocal.

“Some of his views were good enough to be adopted to run the government.”

His relationship with Grand Chief started at Dregerhaffen in Finschhafen Morobe Province.

From Dregerhaffen, they both went to Administration College. They were amongst other young Papua New Guineans who put aside regional differences, and spoke for an independent and united Papua and New Guinea.

Mr. Ahe alongside the Late Sir Michael, was one of the founding members of the Bully Beef Club.

“Everyone of us who were members of the Bully Beef Club, we would discuss ideas while eating rice and bully beef.”

Like all old friends, he has some fun stories to tell about the late Grand Chief Sir Michael, but as he sits in his village in Yanga, Morobe Province, he mourns the death of a friend and brother.
