Church apology

Re: Article on church apology re: Afualo Dr Wood Salele’s comment

Dear Sir,

Please be informed that: I was at the conference and Dr. Afualo Wood Salele’s comments were taken out of context by your reporter or whoever re-laid info.

The article published in your News Paper September 8, 2018 regarding Dr Salele’s comment is misleading. Dr Salele did not ask for an apology from LMS church (EFKS) as per the Influenza disease in 1918 but rather question the validity of the research findings.

The research findings are serious therefore should they hold; has the author considered a formal apology from the church given that it was absent from the conclusive remarks and the author’s response was not necessary, though the seriousness of the findings have been recorded.
