I write in response to M. Kennedy’s letter about Seti Afoa. Unlike most, Seti is a doer! He is trying to build his business running events in Samoa, while he proudly pushes Samoa as a destination.
Each event is bigger than the last and frankly finding nine swimmers crazy enough to swim between Upolu and Savai’i was a great effort.
I do what I can to support Seti with his bike races, marathons and swims and will continue to do so in the future.
During the cyclone, Seti was eagerly seeking information from us in Savai’i, which is more than I can say for the authorities.
The reports from the Met office were so old as to be dangerous, so it was left to individuals to pass on observations in an effort to help fellow Samoans.
Keep it up Seti!
