Dear Editor,

Re: I’m not a sifi

Wonderful to hear some real exchange of taofi ma manatu being exchanged on the floor of the Fono. 

This is refreshing and long over due. Thank you M.P. Faumuina Wayne Fong for standing your ground. 

Others will take their cues from you.

The last I heard such and exchange and opposition to a P.M. Tuilaepa dictate was a couple of years ago when MP Tafua Maluelue, of Aleipata Itupa I lalo, confronted PM Tuilaepa on an Airport to be build in Tafua’s itumalo without a consultation and maliliega ale itumalo and owners of lands affected in Tafuas Aleipata district. 

The P.M. was big time upset! 

It works when brave M.P. stand up to a bully. Yes, no airport. This was recently confirmed, by the chiefs of Tiavea village, to a S.S.I.G. team.

The “sifi” will not like this M.P. Fong, ...but hey, that’s tough! 

You are all in this Parliamentary body for the people of Samoa, not as “yes puppets” to Tuilaepa and H.R.P.P. 

Alo io tou faiva ia ae malo ae pati taoto pea le Feepo.
