The conversation created by the issue of street vendors in Samoa is an interesting one. The only solution is, I believe, is to ban these parents from selling anymore goods around the beach front or town area.
Have them registered as people who disturb the peace and any more kids caught by police to have that kind of aggressiveness.
That way the police can track these culprits and lock them away.
What’s missing nowadays is lack of respect and discipline the core value of our fa’asamoa.
