Re: How Church can help Govt. raise $2.7million fund Church and state, the perfect union in enslaving the people. We took upon ourselves and accept the sheep mentality not to question anything but to go along with anything the two entities tells us.
Dear Editor, Re: Child slavery slammed Nicely done. “And yes people are attracted to small children and that is why parents use their children because people tend to feel sorry for the children.” You got a point there.
Dear Editor, Some years back, I came across this prayer by Pope John XXIII delivered as an open apology to the Jewish people and the Nation of Israel, with regards to the Crucifixion of Jesus. I quote below:
Dear Editor, Re: U.S. Ambassador Brown comes bearing 5 computers, two printers and a long list. That was some list U.S. Ambassador Scott Brown trotted out last week about what great things America First is doing in Samoa.
Re: Govt. and debt Some villages are leasing out some of the families’ lands for business ventures, i.e. the village of Salelologa that leased out their land to a timber mill company.
Dear Editor, Re: Progress means better C.E.O’s I couldn’t agree more with Mr Huaman. Although problems with underperforming C.E.O’s and A.C.E.O’s could be put down to the blind leading the blind, I would expand on Mr. Huaman’s hypothesis that Samoa is facing a crisis of the dumb making the not so dumb ‘’dumber.’’
Dear Editor, Re: E.P.C’s work during cyclone What a service! I salute you all, the Board and the management, C.E.O. and the E.P.C. What a great job and a great effort you are doing for our people.
Dear Editor, Re: P.M. tells Directors to listen more, speak less Oh My Lordy, a P.M. with degrees and now a recent Doctorate bestowal and his comments are so babyish and bordering farcical. As much as you have done a lot for Samoa, I do remember you too partake in more talk and Less listening.
Dear Editor, Re: The Govt. and debt Really is that all you got from Ropati’s post? I think his point was not whether the money the government receives is a loan or a grant but what they do with it.
Dear Editor, The H.R.P.P. have been in power for over 30+ years and yet they don’t have an answer to the continuous floods in Apia when we have a lot of rain or cyclones. I don’t think they have managed to fix even one of the affected areas.
Dear Editor, Re: Health fears after Gita Very sad it happened but I do not understand when locals say they aren’t prepared for such disasters when Samoa has cyclone season from Nov to March? Families need to consider their welfare and undertake storm preparations starting April to Oct so come storm season, they’re prepared.
Re: We could’ve been better prepared To be honest, this is why people live in Samoa must cleanup their properties constantly all year round. To eliminate problems like this one. Even creeks and rivers so the water can flow freely where they are suppose to go through.
Dear Editor, Re: We could’ve been better prepared Samoa is an Island ...we attract vicious weather developments at certain times of the year...at least we get warnings.
Re: Mayor calls for Govt. action He explained: “The reason there’s a delay in the construction of the wall along the Lelata riverbank is because some families disagree with the construction of the wall. The families have their own personal reasons for disagreeing with the construction works.”
Dear Editor, Re: Gita a sign from heaven Wrong timing pastor... your thoughts don’t help when people need inspiration. When will our people stop, pray and think that this disaster or in that case any disaster is Not A FORM of PUNISHMENT.
Dear Editor, Re: Govt. signs grant with Japan Samoa has joined the international community of operating on aikalafu (debt). There was never a time they came up with budget surplus.The govt. secured grants like these for infrastructure in the past, and there was much improvement made on roading projects to inland areas across the two main islands, to encourage subsistence and commercial agriculture.
Dear Editor, Re: Maua should be A.G. If Maua really hates corruption (his famous words) and the true lover of transparency government, if aiga is so dear to his heart, he would have taken my many advise.
On the front page of the Samoa Observer of 13 February 2018, Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi, is pictured as he’s addressing the Samoa Institute of Directors on the topic of Leadership and Governance.
Tropical Cyclone Gita devastated a number of Pacific island countries last week. In Samoa, it left many families at Lelata, Ma’agao and Vini devastated. What was going through your mind during the cyclone? And what would you do differently if another cyclone comes? Nefertiti Matatia asked in today’s Street Talk and this is what people said:
Think a minute…Someone said:”All fun ends with marriage.” Do you feel that way some days? Maybe your marriage is going through a change of seasons. Remember, “Love is more than just a game for two.”
Ladies and Gentlemen, Talofa lava! As an Indigenous Samoan, Let me first pay my respect to the Indigenous Owners of this land and thank their ancestors, past present and future, for letting me stand before you on these sacred cultural lands!
THE BEST A big fa’amalo to the skilled and courageous E.P.C. staff who braved the winds and rain to restore power from broken and dangerous power lines on Cross Island Road on Wednesday night in pitch darkness.
Samoa’s Ava Exports is looking promising, with exports expected to increase in the next couple of years. Ava exports was Samoa’s second largest export commidity from 1998 to 2001 until some European countries led by Germany imposed restrictions on the Pacific Kava Trade. Samoa’s exports of Ava in 1998 was just under $20m.
