If P.M. Tuilaepa’s govt. picks on Police, they should do the same to all others in the public service

Some time a while ago, Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi issued an order to all Police officers. To avoid cases of conflict of interest and for the sake of transparency and good governance within the Ministry, as the Minister of Police he banned couples from working together.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, It’s good to see that someone in the Ministry of Police is finally showing courage and speaking out against the so called drastic measure that has been implemented by the Prime Minister and the Police Commissioner, to apparently address conflict of interest in the ministry.

Dear Editor, Re: A very interesting twist Steve you are a fool, what a joke!. You don’t even make sense. Read your dribble again and think about it. I am sure Auckland Rugby don’t need World Rugby money and I am sure Auckland Rugby went through a proper process instead of a joke of a process that happened in Samoa.

Dear Editor, Re: Peaceful march a success Success? Out of 190,000 Samoa however the greater in numbers who attended the unsuccessful march were flown in from overseas.

Why are you unemployed?

If you are unemployed, blame yourself. Nobody else. Almost. Let me explain. People say I need a job. Doesn’t anybody? Unfortunately, those who proclaim that way, and I don’t blame them, do not know, with all certainty, what kind of a job they want.

Where is our dignity?

When I read poetry, in my solitude, I often think of my love for my country and yours too. I think of the beauty of it, and how the essence of it all is a sweet caress on a troubled mankind’s forehead.

Between the Lines

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.

SLOW DOWN PLEASE Those midnight rally drivers might want to be careful out there.

YOU’RE THE BEST! Admiration and thanks to the school pupils, supervised by teachers, for manning the pedestrian crossings near schools and keeping their many fellow students and drivers safe on our roads.

Think a Minute

Think a minute…Are you in the habit of putting salt on your food? Maybe you have a habit of thinking you’re not smart and that you’ll never succeed in life. Don’t forget, your habits control your life.
