A broken Samoa

Dear Editor,

Re: Prisoners escape 

A year ago, an interview with Tuilaepa Sailele by an Australian news brought to light a couple that were in Samoa for their honeymoon. 

Tuilaepa pathetically said they were at the wrong place when the couple were at a hotel, a place for tourists, how stupid was that response. 

The woman was raped by a prison escapee. We all heard Tuilaepa’s stupidity as he tried to justify the poor facilities at Tafa’igata and the problems to be fixed. 

I am not at all surprised by this news because the justice system is broken and so as the facilities despite the millions of dollars donated to Samoa.

The behaviour of Tuilaepa and his government is a concern for the safety of the public, but that man does not care nor does anyone in government. 

Samoa is broken.
