Tonga appoints new Governor of Ha’apai

The Government said Taufatofua was appointed Governor by King Tupou VI on 28 December 2021.

A family celebration was supposed to be held in January 2022 but was delayed because of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai volcanic eruption and tsunami, said the Prime Minister's Office.

Prime Minister, Hu'akavameiluki Siaosi Sovaleni read out the appointment letter while visiting Ha'apai this week.

The Prime Minister was on his first official visit, as leader of Government.
