Re: Highest paid govt. officials
Every dollar is deservedly so for our politicians and those lawyers who are blessed to serve Samoa as judges etc.
I reckon our politicians are underpaid compared to the amount of developments before the eyes of those who can see but the vicious gaffes from the blinds.
Hon. Prime Minister (Speaking/Paramount Chief) Fatialofa 'Auelua Tuila'epa Lupesoli'ai Lolofia Neioti Galumalemana Ai'ono Dr. Sa'ilele Malielegaoi deserves a million dollar per annum salary he's the best ever prime minister Samoa has ever had.
The Chief Justice is also underpaid. And so as other judges; same as Cabinet Ministers, Deputy Prime Minister, and Members of the Council of Deputies.
At least $20 million per annum should be earmarked for the government payroll to compensate fairly those who are at the engine room of developments.
It is the hard work of our public servants that lifted Samoa from the bottom of the heap our country is no longer a Least Develop Country but developed as per UN high standard.
Thank you guys; sorry we are not paying you your true remuneration but thanking you so much for taking whatever your country can afford to reward your hard efforts.
You are all the real champions.
