Reference out of context

Dear Editor,

Re: Election petitions withdrawn 

A true Samoan in reference to cultural practices and traditions does not merit what politicians are doing in today’s world.

They use cultural traditions as a political tool to manipulate the system to get what they want.

“O oe nei, a’o a’u taeao” as Toilolo’s famous saying in Samoan history does not apply in this context.

It is reference to an argument between brothers that resolved to agree to disagree. Not in this case like they were conjured by a higher super natural power to withdraw.

Leituala T.B.
