The late VP President and member for Parliament for Port Vila, Edward Nipake Natapei Tuta Fanua`araki had spent the last two months with youths. Natapei attended Youth gatherings and supported them by launching music shows, and trying to help support youth ideas and initiatives.
The late MP Natapei launched the “In aid of PAM” concerts by Dezine in Port Vila and Luganville. He kept up appearances whenever possible to youth gatherings. His absence will be visible through youth activities.
Late Natapei has four Youth Councillors in Port Vila and does have a strong hold in the Youth population in Port Vila. The late Port Vila MP does have a long history with his involvement with youths since he became an MP in 1983.
