The Pacific loses a great friend

The Labour Party says the Pacific has lost a friend and a hero with today’s death of rugby legend Jonah Lomu, says Labour’s Pacific Affairs spokesperson Su’a William Sio. 

“On behalf of Labour I want to convey to Jonah’s family our sincere condolences. I was saddened by his passing as he was a good personal friend.

“He was also a good friend and strong supporter of our young Pasifika people. 

“Jonah was one of rugby’s greatest ambassadors and a great role model for all the people in the Pacific,” says Su’a William Sio.
