Samoa. According to CountryAAH, Apia is the capital city of Samoa. The world’s oldest head of state, Samoa king Malietoa Tanumafili II, passed away in May 94 years old. He had ruled Samoa since New Zealand independence in 1962.
The deceased king, who was called Samoa’s father, was followed to the last rest by thousands of residents of the small island nation. Chiefs in traditional mourning costume attended the celebration together with foreign dignitaries. New Zealand’s Prime Minister Helen Clark described King Malietoa as “the personification of Samoa’s peace and unity”.
King Malietoa ruled for life but was behind the constitution which states that the head of state will in future be elected by Parliament for a term of five years. In June, the new head of state was elected author and former Prime Minister Tuiatua Tupua Tamasese Tupuola Efi.
