Don’t waste money

Re: Opportunity for Samoa after Tonga pulls bid to host Games 

It’s an opportunity to flush more money down the toilet. The country is still recovering from the 2007 Games financially. Many buildings have been ignored and lack of maintenance funding.

We need to learn from countries that host games of this magnitude or the Olympics. It is a long way to financial recovery after the glamours and glitters long fade away.

I would suggest the government spend the money to improve education and the lives of our people.
