MALIETOA HEIR: Bob Ainu’u Afamasaga is looking forward to serving Samoa.

One of the heirs to claim the Malietoa title, is returning home soon               

Talofa Samoa. E muamua lava ona ave le faafetai I le Tama I le Lagi. Fa’amua sa tatou fa’apolo ma sa tatou fa’asagi i le Tapa’au i le lagi, ua talia fa’autuga tagi. Ua ta’oto ai nei peau o le sami moe foi ma mata matagi.

E faigata paia o Samoa. Ae ou te le’i utufia le vai na ‘i’ite ai le Tuiatua, e muamua lava ona ou saua i le vā le maualuga o lenei aso ua tatou fesootai ai I luga o lenei nusipepa o le “Samoa Observer.” 

Le afifio o ‘āiga o nofo ma ‘āiga o pāpā. Le alalata’i o le mamalu i le ‘aufueloloa o Sāmoa, o le pa’ia lava lea o ‘Āiga ma Tama, Tumua ma Pule, Itu’au ma Alataua, ‘Āiga i le Tai ma le Va’a o Fonoti. Afio Sua ma le Vaifanua, Fofō ma Āitulagi ma le Launiusaelua, Tama a le Manu’atele ma To’oto’o o le Fale’ula.

Ua mati’e le tia Alii, ua paia le tia sa, ua sunu’i matagi, ua taoto i’a sa ua paia le lalolagi o loo afifio ai Samoa, ua liligo le fogatia, ua ifo nei i le tia, ua logo le lupe sa olo, ua sili mea nei i seuga, ua sili ofe a tautai ae ene le upega fetalai. O le autu o lenei fesootaiga, sei tuu atu i le faaperetania.

On June 2001, I was asked by my mother Ainu’u Talele and His Highness Malietoa Tanumafili II to return to Samoa to be one of the co-heirs to the Malietoa title with Malietoa’s son, Moli. 

My sister Maota who currently lived there in Samoa can testify to this event. I declined the offer at the time as I was busy with technologies that are now ready to be brought home.

What I can bring to Samoa. As an inventor and scientist, I’m at the cutting edge of the following technologies; DNA, Nutrition, and Solar Cell technology to name a few. 

You can Google my name on the internet to read all about some of my accomplishments and what I can bring to help Samoa compete globally with other nations. Aside from being an inventor, scientist and author of numerous books, my United States military experience and work in the United States federal government are assets to any leadership positions I will be put in.

I am excited to return home to take on the Malietoa title with other heirs based on traditions or the Mavaega “Tulouga Mago” and the 1939 legal decision. I’m looking forward to serving my people of Samoa, my “aiga ma paolo” to the best of my abilities and potentials.

A ta’ape le filiali’i, ia talalua Tuna ma Fata. Afifio lena itu i le lagi e mamā, ae tapua’i ‘āiga ia i le manuia. Ia mamao ni timu to auā lenā itu o le lalolagi. Ia mamao ni fue lafo, ae ‘ou ola i le alofa o le Atua. Faafetai.
