Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor Re: Church launches Social Welfare and Book Shop At this point Wendy, any form of ‘giving’ by any Church denomination should be viewed as charity. In this case whether this particular denomination is giving to their followers or general public, I still feel that they’re at least acknowledging the issue of poverty in Samoa.

Dear Editor, Political party system in our Parliament was created by former politicians who were determined to make the ‘leading jobs’ become permanently theirs. This started to drive our parliament into a divided phase contrary to our traditions and culture.

Dear Editor, Re: Church land mystery It is about time the hierarchy of the Congregational Christian Church of Samoa seek professional coaching from lawyers about the process in getting land purchases properly.
