There’s a saying

Re: Thank you, it’s the thought that counts 

It’s about time Tuilaepa you start opening your deep pockets as you promised for so many years. 

But your words and actions are all politically motivated. 

Now that other sports are doing favourably well, you have jumped to praise and celebrate the commonwealth athletes but you dealt the uneducated card over to the Manu Samoa Sevens.

I was going to use a Samoan saying “ Ua ai ulu ae tuanai taimi “ but nope your actions require a more classy saying “ A fai ua teu, ia teu ma mateu. A fai ua fai, ia fai ia mafai “ 

That should do it, it’s a great saying for those who do not know it’s origin.

Despite the uplifting spirit of the phrase, it is born out of incest, kind a like a beautiful flower with a rotten core.
