Samoa citizenship

Newly sworn-in Samoan citizen pays tribute to late Samoan wife

Peter Ross Humrich who is from Brisbane, could not hold back his tears as he held in his hands a certificate confirming his Samoan citizenship - the one thing his wife wanted for him when she was alive.

Mr Humrich was among people of other nationalities who received their Samoa citizenship at an official ceremony at the Government building Wednesday.

“My wife passed away so I promised her this and here we go and that’s all I can say,” he said.

“She was a sweet young lady and we got married.”
