The body of the late Minister for Public Service and MP for East Malaita Joses Sanga will lay in state tomorrow.

Chief of Staff in the Prime Minister's Office Dr Judson Leafasia says the body of late Sanga will be brought to Parliament Chamber tomorrow morning.

The Governor General Sir Nathaniel Waena will pay his tribute to the late minister followed by the Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare and other dignitaries. The public will be allowed to pay their respect after midday tomorrow.

Late Sanga's resting place will be decided by family members. Late Sanga died of a heart attack Tuesday morning.
