Stephen Pokawin states that at that time in Port Moresby independence was not an issue, at UPNG most teachers were Australians, and that independence did not become an issue for him until the aftermath of the 1972 election. He remembers the visit of the United Nations mission to Manus Island in 1962 and the discussions surrounding independence.
