Anything to justify their decision

Re: Ele’s treatment

“Getting back to Ele, Tuilaepa appears to have no issues about her 

going on to represent New Zealand – which is unlikely to happen.”

 “Right now you should always go to where the money is. You don’t 

need to worry about anything else, but go to where you benefit from.”

“Now what on earth is he talking about?”

He is talking about anything and everything that could justify the government’s decision in not hournoring the most decorated Samoan sports star who carried the name Samoa to the whole world not to just a few or some countries like other sports competitions do. The Olympic Games is the ultimate sports competition view by the whole world.

Samoa is broke, and unfortunately for Ele, she’s a female athlete, not a male athlete, or the government would have done everything possible to award Samoan most decorated and well-known athlete.
