Media Statement from Office of the Chief Secretary


On behalf of the Bougainville Public Service, I wish to extend our most heartfelt and deepest sympathies to the immediate family of the Late Brenda Tohiana.

The Late Ms Brenda Tohiana sadly passed away on Thursday 02nd April 2020 in Port Moresby. She was the Secretary for the Department of Finance and Treasury, until the time of her passing due to a long illness.

The Late Brenda Tohiana was a senior public servant who served Bougainville and her people wholeheartedly, with great commitment and aspiration to see Bougainville prosper.

The Bougainville Public Service and the people of Bougainville acknowledge the contributions of such great women leaders such as the Late Brenda Tohiana in supporting Bougainville’s peace and development process over the years.

Our deepest condolence goes out to the immediate family and children, Mangsa, Natalie, Kyle and Stephanie. May her soul rest in eternal peace.
