Courage and wisdom

Re: Head of State on land issue 


He said: “But to avoid this we must re-locate, re-inscribe and re-inspirit in the heart and mind of our laws the wisdom of our tu ma aganuu Samoa and our tofi pa’ia tuufaasolo. This we cannot do without finding and reviving the principle of alofa in law.”

 “We have faced many challenges as a nation since regaining Independence but this is the most serious. To overcome this challenge, we must first recognise that the challenge now comes not from outside but from within.”

 “We must recognise that, like Joshua and the Israelites, the only way to cross the river as a nation with our souls intact is to find understanding in the wisdom of our forebears and their trust in God.”

Well said your Highness, can’t put it any better than you already have. 

And thank you for the courage and the wisdom to turn your back to the mistake of the past. 

It is now time to work towards making sure our people understand the ramification that this illegal law can bring and towards rescinding and making this law void as it is against the Samoan Constitution.
