Agus Alua, MRP chairman dies

JUBI, 7 April 2011 

It has just been announced that Agus Alua, the chairman of the MRP, died today at the Dian Harapan Hospital in Jayapura.

The cause of death is not yet known but it appears that he was suddenly taken ill and may already have passed away before reaching the hospital. He is survived by his wife Corry Pekey and three children.

Socrates Sofyan Yoman , the chairman of the Alliance of Baptist Churches in Papua, said that the Papuan people have lost a great leader. ‘He was a great man who did a huge amount for the Papuan people. We will feel his loss deeply.’

‘Although he had passed on, his spirit of struggle will remain with us. Dont feel frustrated, his spirit will remain here in the Land of  Papua,’ he said.

The Majelis Rakyat Papua of which he was the chairman during its first term which has just come to an end, was created in accordance with the  provisions of the Special Autonomy Law No 21/2001, and was composed solely of Papuans, including representatives of women’s organisations, of youth organisations and of various ethnic groups.
