What really hurts us

Dear Editor,


Great call Mr. Editor about Heather du Plessis-Allan’s leeches comment.

That descendant of slave traders have been educated enough by Pacific scholars so it has been a very useful experience for her going forward. 

We need to put our energy into eradication of our local “leech” infestation which is killing and hurting our people. 

Corrupt government officials in this part of the world are like blood sucking “leeches” taking money and violating laws of the land. 

But unlike leeches which are useful in the medical field, some government officials in Samoa have contributed to the suffering of the people. 

We need to encourage and educate the locals about how to identify leeches so that the country can progress and develop into a self-sustaining little paradise free of leeches.

Free Samoa from leeches and government corruption.

On the issue of the Confucius Institution, someone wrote: “There is more to learn from Confucius than from any of the various Christian fiction books pushed down the throats of Samoan children.” 

Humble yourself and always be grateful of what your Christian parents have done for you. 

You are full of resentment and disgust but they were the most influential people in your life and they are Christians. 

No one is capable of forcing a hard cover book through your open mouth and pushing it down your throat.....when you were young.

That’s impossible to do and if it did happened, then I’m sorry to say this but you were being abused when you were young. 

Please do the right thing and report these cruel acts to the police because it is against the law and against Christian principles.


Le Mafa P.
