The antibiotics shortage

Dear Editor,

Interesting to read Minister Tuitama’s comments about the shortage of antibiotics.

Why are these antibiotics sitting on the wharf? Why are these medicine being shipped instead of flown into the country which is safer? 

Why not air ship some to replenished stock incase of a delay on an ocean carrier? If the shipment is sitting at the wharf, why can’t the Minister of Health order the staff on the dock to release a partial shipment so the hospital can administer the drug to people who are in need?

A government that claims to own its own ocean freight carrier but would not do anything to ease the stress of its people is beyond anybody with a sense of moral. This party is setting themselves and families to benefit from these operations well beyond their lifetime.

This party is ensuring Samoa will not have any middle class. More sign of us sinking into poverty regardless of how many new infrastructure are being built. 

All these new infrastructure will be accessible only by the rich and members of this party along with all their families. The poor will be chase and discarded as non-existence by these folks.

Sad future on the rise for our great Island Nation.
