Dear Editor Re: Complete rubbish Let me tell you PS Jeffrey that “Siaosi Siomia” and “Oi Sole” are not the same person. So you have begun with a lie. That is why you have to be 100% sure before you say/write something otherwise you lose credibility but I will forgive you on this as this is not important.
Dear Editor, I am personally grateful for the availability of Internet and especially the use of social media in Samoa. I see confidence in many of our local users in voicing their opinions and concerns online, and public debate.
Dear Editor Re: Samoa defends China I have found the tone of A’Samoan Government believes Chinese soft loans have yielded modern buildings and given employees the ability to work better!’ What a load of media savvy garbage! That is, we have (supposedly) modern technology and modern facilities that have made Samoa (Prime Minister’s story) become a modern Country?
Dear Editor Re: Samoa defends China in diplomatic dispute I have found the tone of Australia’s attack on China similar to the U.S. and yet they are unable to do the exact development and economic projects being done by China to help the Pacific. The comments from Concetta are just lip service.
Dear Editor, Re: P.M. and Samoa must tread carefully Both of these letters from Siaosi Siomia and his other ID, Oi Sole, are complete rubbish. 1. For the past 200 years, the major business players in Samoa have foreign surnames.
Dear Editor, There have been obvious talks by Unasa Iuni Sapolu and her S.S.I.G. team about their next move. They had already done their first move where they bravely marched the street of Apia with their banners against the govt and the Land Titles Registration Act 2008 (L.T.R.A).
Dear Editor, I applaud the Prime Minister who is the Minister of Police for his decision to make redundant the couples and siblings working within the Ministry of Police. The decision came into effect on 31st December 2017 where either of the couple or siblings has to leave the service.
Dear Editor, I'm going to speak directly to Ne Ne o Samoa and all those who have this mindset that Unasa Iuni Sapolu is being "silly" with these white agendas. First I'd like to say you do have valid points there, valid to you.
Dear Editor, Re: P.M. and Samoa must tread carefully The Samoan government should have been promoting Samoan Investors. Samoans should have been educating other Samoans to make sure Samoan mo Samoa was happening.
Dear Editor, Re: P.M. rubbishes China claims Very well presented. I watched events back home with anxiety and stress knowing that those responsible for empowering any political party to form a government, our matai, lack the basic education to understand world affairs evolving around them daily.
Re: Women as Head of State I find some of the comments shared here truly sad - especially in this day and age. I'm all for a female Head of Sate, School Principal, CEO, Sales Manager, Lawyer, Mother, Team captain, Doctor, Professor, Head Chef, Member of Parliament and yes . . . Prime Minister too!
Re: Samoa’s debt to China Some of the central bank reports can be found at https://www.cbs.gov.ws/inde... If they are to be believed, total debt in 2013/14 was WST959.5m and as at the first quarter of 2017 a mere WST1,008.4m, or an increase of only WST48.9m in the past 3 years.
Dear Editor, Re: P.M. rubbishes claims about debt to China Is it Chinese Aid or Debt Entrapment? I hope our Prime Minister prayed and thought hard about what he is doing? I hope he thought about the consequences and the outcome of his decisions? For him to put our small Island Nation into so much debt is irresponsible, foolish and negligent.
Re: Just accept the truth Don’t cast your pearls before a swine. Knowledge is power and it’s the only way that will relieve you from bondage which will lead you to ultimately freedom. The story of Jesus is a spiritual and intellectual story of enlightenment.
Dear Editor, The re-introduction of the Criminal Libel law in my own view is a conspiracy theory. I arrived to that conclusion because I believe; the reason why Prime Minister Tuilaepa defamed Unasa and the people of the protest march as explained in the first part of this discussion is because he left out himself to be an exception from the Criminal Libel law’s control because he is the Prime Minister.
Dear Editor, Water is life as you once had said Mr. Editor, and indeed it is. The people of Palisi (Palisians) had found true in meanings when being woken up at 3am Wednesday 10th January 2018 and had tried to flush toilet after discharging more water into the cistern and no clean water for the refilling; and no clean water to wash the hands, then the people’s hygienic and health safety is in question.
Dear Editor, Recently there have been publications on social media and on print regarding the Prime Minister’s letter of advice to Heads of Government office regarding their spiritual commitments in the closing service of the Fasting and Prayer week.
Dear Editor Re: Chief jailed for forgery E sola le amioleaga ae tuliloaina. This fool is a menace to society. He has tried numerous times to do this kind of stuff in other villages thus causing anxiety and trouble.
Some great things have been said about this country over recent weeks. If you’ve been following the Dear Tourist pages of your newspaper, you would have been proud. Indeed visitors from all over the world - including many Samoans coming back for the holidays - have been impressed so much by the changes they have seen that they have been doing nothing but singing praises of how wonderful this place is.
What do you think about having a woman as the Head of State? Nefertiti Matatia asked in today’s street talk. This is what they said:
Think a minute…Do you wish you were somewhere else right now? At the beach? Away on a nice holiday? At Disneyland? Many of us spend a lot of our time wishing we were somewhere else. When we’re at work we wish we were home relaxing. We wish we had a different job and career or a different boss. We wish we were rich.
Stop. Unplug your earphones, headphones, you know what, turn the phone off.
LEARNING THE AIRLINES LINGO Heard the term “close in bookings”? Chances are, you are one of the many Samoans who fall into that category used by airlines to describe your booking when you travel.
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.
