When dangerous criminals run amok, what’s the point of having laws?

Listen up folks. This Government needs to stop meddling with other people’s business and concentrate on doing its job so the people of this country are protected from harm.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Regarding: Business support lifting the minimum wage There you are the good people of the nation! The cracks are starting to appear in the latest claim by the honourable Prime Minister of the country aiming the pendulum to swing the wrong direction.

Re: P.M. and villager leaders Wendy, you will remain confused if you jump to conclusions. Nowhere in the report does it say the mayors are the last word in the village. The P.M. did not elevate the mayors as the head of the villages.

Re: P.M. and village chiefs “Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sailele Malielegaoi has challenged Village Mayors not to be afraid of making hard decision – even if it is against paramount chiefs.”

Changing lives: Now that the Festive season is finished

Talofa Samoa! In the first week of last year, I was looking for one of METI ‘champions’: someone, who had been following the whole foods, plant based (WFPB) diet that METI promotes and who had been successful in reversing his diabetes condition, which had been crippling him for years.

What the P.M. said at opening of Vailoa Hydro

We are gathered here today for the Commissioning Ceremony to mark the Completion of the construction and installation of the 200 Kilowatt Vailoa New Hydro Power Plant.

Between the Lines

A simple sign will do Samoans who support their national airline, Samoa Airways, want the management to know something.

Imagine this. It’s been six months since your family’s case had been given a date by the Land and Titles Court.

P.M. on Church leaders It seems Prime Minister Tuilaepa can’t leave members of clergy alone. During a radio programme last week, he had plenty to say about Church Ministers. For instance, he reminded them that Church Ministers were only taught on spiritual matters, not on Economics.

Think a Minute

Think a minute…Have you ever been lost? If you travel to another country for the first time, getting lost can be frustrating and discouraging. Imagine you have just arrived in London, England and want to go to a certain place in that great city.

Govt. applauded for hydro power

The Government has in the last two weeks been commissioning hydro power plants on both Upolu and Savai’i as it continues the push to become 100 percent reliant on renewable energy by 2025. Our reporter Yolanda Lavatai went and met members of the public to get their views on the issue.
