P.M. Tuilaepa attacks media for reporting on incest and rape! Why? Is he worried that without tourists, his baby Samoa Airways would repeat the horror that’s still haunting him today?

Around three months ago during a press conference, Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi apparently vented his rage against the media and the Police, accusing them of giving Samoa a bad name around the world with what he claimed, were repeated media reports on incest and rape right here in Samoa.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor Re: Govt’s criminal libel move ‘serious concern’ Just because the Prime Minister does not want the whole country and the whole world to know and bring to light all the corruption under his leadership, that is why all of a sudden he gives credit to the previous administrations:

Dear Editor Re: World Rugby hits back at P.M. Tuilaepa, disputes bankruptcy claim World Rugby has to dispute any statement by SRU because of the worldwide media and so they did just that. It makes broad statements without details.

Dear Editor Re: From Mugabe to Tuilaepa, what is really hurting Samoa People living in Samoa must stand up to this lack of transparency by the Chief Auditor and the PM. Hold all the HRPP party members accountable and organise a democratic election to put qualified and trustworthy people into Government, who declare their assets when they arrive into Parliament and when they leave!

Why we need Samoa Airways

Talofa Lava and Welcome to this important and historical occasion for our people and our country.

Between the Lines

LEARNING THE AIRLINES LINGO Heard the term “close in bookings”? Chances are, you are one of the many Samoans who fall into that category used by airlines to describe your booking when you travel.

SLOW DOWN PLEASE Those midnight rally drivers might want to be careful out there.

YOU’RE THE BEST! Admiration and thanks to the school pupils, supervised by teachers, for manning the pedestrian crossings near schools and keeping their many fellow students and drivers safe on our roads.

Think a Minute

Think a minute…In 1972 Life magazine published a story about the true adventures of John Goddard. When he was 15-years-old John heard his grandmother sadly say: “If only I had done that when I was young…” At that moment, John determined not to have regrets at the end of his life, so he wrote down 127 goals for his life.

Street Talk

Head of State or Governor General?

Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi’s government has moved to amend the Constitution once more in relation to the position of the Head of State. But the change has given rise to suggestions that since anyone is now eligible to become the Head of State, is it not time to consider changing the title from Head of State to Governor General. What do you think? Ioana Tupa’i asked in today’s Street Talk and this is what people said:
