Tofaeono Hollywood’s sycophantic views

Dear Editor,

For many years we have tolerated the hateful, high-horsey, sycophantic views of Tofaeono Hollywood as these appear as letters to the editor in your newspaper, always  supporting the H.R.P.P. 

Many of us have been the targets of his written venom. But the latest attacks against the innocent poor people who live in the village shows up the level of his education.

 The feedback from the people interviewed by your reporters stated the truth and that is  they all work hard  but the pay, commercial rewards are not enough for them.  

A  family budget of $100 a week for instance.  Also there are families in Faleasiu, Fasito’o-uta and near Apia which do not have  access to the government  drinking  water supply. 

The situation has gone worse since the H.R.P.P came into power 30 years ago.  These are basic needs-like having the oxygen to breathe, a roof to live under and water to drink. Hundreds of Samoans are denied government-supplied drinking water. Why?

This bloke’s views on the Chinese in Samoa are unSamoan and downright stupid. The Samoan market can not absorb thousands of these Chinese businesses. Proof? The information on people’s  lifestyles  in the  villages as reported in the Samoa Observer.

The main in family diets are koko samoa, faalifu talo and people live according to the  $100 tala  house hold budgets a week.  

Your views on the poor people  are like those of the klu Klux Clan - man, if you were the matai in my family I’ll  kick your ...

You don’t understand us the poor people because you are a foreigner.
