Wasting taxpayers’ money

Dear Editor,

I remember that some time ago, the current Minister of Finance Sili Epa Tuioti had promised to put in place a policy in control of the abuse or misuse of government vehicles. 

At the time, I welcomed the decision.

It was a move well planned, timely and was supported by all taxpayers. 

Whether or not the policy has been activated is not yet known because I still see so many other abuses that have yet to be detected.

In this regard, I would like to personally express my gratitude to you for without a doubt, the Samoa Observer has contributed exceedingly much more than anyone else to that cost saving campaign of the Minister, that is by publishing photos of government cars carrying plantation produce, furniture, timbers, sands, hardware loads etc, etc and running after hours so uncontrollably.

Now I want to add that I have seen a 15-seater white van with the registration number plate MPMC10 carry passengers I believe are not staff members during the weekends within the town area. I wonder if the C.E.O. is aware about this, let alone the Prime Minister who is the head of this particular ministry?
