Pearls and a swine

Re: Just accept the truth Don’t cast your pearls before a swine. Knowledge is power and it’s the only way that will relieve you from bondage which will lead you to ultimately freedom. The story of Jesus is a spiritual and intellectual story of enlightenment.

Political disasters and facts about the Constitution of Samoa. Part II

Dear Editor, The re-introduction of the Criminal Libel law in my own view is a conspiracy theory. I arrived to that conclusion because I believe; the reason why Prime Minister Tuilaepa defamed Unasa and the people of the protest march as explained in the first part of this discussion is because he left out himself to be an exception from the Criminal Libel law’s control because he is the Prime Minister.

Samoa Water Authority has no logic

Dear Editor, Water is life as you once had said Mr. Editor, and indeed it is. The people of Palisi (Palisians) had found true in meanings when being woken up at 3am Wednesday 10th January 2018 and had tried to flush toilet after discharging more water into the cistern and no clean water for the refilling; and no clean water to wash the hands, then the people’s hygienic and health safety is in question.

Enjoy jail

Dear Editor Re: Chief jailed for forgery E sola le amioleaga ae tuliloaina. This fool is a menace to society. He has tried numerous times to do this kind of stuff in other villages thus causing anxiety and trouble.

The call to legalise marijuana

Dear Editor Just a few weeks ago, Iuni Sapolu was one of the leading personnel of a peaceful protest that aimed at conserving the Faasinomaga of all Samoan people, our lands. It was a bold stance, I emphasised the value of their efforts.

All they need to do

Dear Editor Re: Govt. criticised for ‘lack of consultation’ on Criminal Libel If the P.M. really wants to stop O.L.P. he doesn’t need to re instate the old libel law all he needs to do is become accountable and transparent.

It’s already in the works

Dear Editor, Re: Woman as Head of State The move to change the Head of State from a male to a female is already in the works to coincide with the shift in political wrangling concocted by the NWO. Since Samoa is the poster child of the UN for change. Isis, Osarius, and Horus.

The way forward for Samoa

Dear Editor, Re: Samoa eyes China flight China is not the answer to all of Samoa’s challenges. New Chinese supermarkets have flooded Samoa with cheap, low quality and inferior goods that really do not reduce the cost of living, particularly if you take into account the negative impact on Samoan small businesses.

An evasive answer

Dear Editor Re: Ministry of P.M.’s Chief clarifies Head of State law “Contacted for a comment, Agafili said he was disappointed with the context of the newsletter. The newsletter issued makes it seem like women are not qualified, but that is not the case here, the Act is crystal clear,” he said.”

Political disasters and facts about the Constitution of Samoa. Part I

Dear Editor, The beginning of publications for media sessions on social media for this New Year (2018) was kicked off with a political disaster. It was so disgraceful. It started off with an old disrespectful behavior of Prime Minister Tuilaepa towards members of the public like Unasa Iuni Sapolu and other members of the public that have been involved in the recent protest march for customary land.

What happened to the process?

Dear Editor Re: “Criminal Libel” and Prime Minister Tuilaepa’s gift from American Samoa I’m shocked that Parliament passed this Criminal Libel Law within in an hour!! THE CONSTITUTION OF THE INDEPENDENT STATE OF SAMOA Part 11 General and Miscellaneous under Article 109.

Stay far, far away from Unasa and her silly marijuana claims

Dear Editor, Unasa Iuni Sapolu views expressed in your story where she calls for the legalization of marijuana are absurd. I refer to the bit where she said: “ Stop listening to white agendas, colonized minds, it’s just a plant, legalise it and reduce government indebtedness.”

Well done, Asau!

Dear Editor, Re: Everyone should follow Asau This is wonderful for the Village of Asau. I would suggest the same to all the villages of Samoa; do not wait for the Courts to decide what to do when a mother, wife or a child is beaten or abused.

No need to burn our bridges over Australia and China row

The truth is simple enough. Australian Minister Concetta Fierravanti-Wells might have sounded rather undiplomatic in her criticisms of China’s aid to the Pacific region but we cannot deny that she does have a very valid point.

The woman and her bones

Do you feel the earth would be kinder if Adam was Eve instead? When I look at the children of the streets, I feel sorrow only. There is not a bone in a loving mother which does not ache for the grief upon any child. I miss my own mother like I miss the rain.
