Dear Editor, Re: Aid expert downplays debt trap This so-called Aid expert won’t be around to help when Samoa is absolutely broke and have no ways of raising money to pay the “interest” of the 1$billion loan.
Dear Editor Re: Govt. in control of airline finances As is the case the world over, airlines are generally the domain of private enterprise. The same should apply in Samoa.
Dear Editor, Re: $1.1 billion debt, charges against Church Ministers and corruption A moving forward world is a progressive life for the right of this the right of that and of course the right to develop one’s country. The past is history.
Re: Samoa’s debt and corruption The debt to equity ratio in Samoa is an inverted fraction already, it needs to counter balance by finding some lucrative resources to make up the difference. And guess who’s the one that’s going to pay the Piper to make up the difference?
Re: Report shocks diplomat The journalist is acting on advise from Australian government which was announced in the parliament last week comparing security risks involved in regard of close proximity to Australia.
Dear Editor Re: We’ve never left, U.S. assures Pacific I think that had it not been for China’s interest in the Pacific, perhaps the U.S. official take would have been one to leave the Pacific alone as it has done for the past three decades.
Dear Editor, Re: Solution to violence within families The P.M. is right, the solution to domestic violence lies with all of us. We, particularly the men, need to be able to communicate better and more effectively with our wives and children.
Re: Climate change Yes it is and to all those stupid Samoan Trump supporters who say climate change is a hoax, then they should be forced to go and live out by the coasts of Kiribati and then they can start wailing about hoaxes as they start drowning in the sea.
Dear Sir, The information in the article written by Sapeer Mayron, “Bank in NZ money laundering scandal” once again remind us the people of Samoa of the sufferings we have from NZ. The Central Bank of New Zealand is run by a bunch of prejudicial and racist people.
It is always good to seeking advice and gathering the right ideas to improve the Tourism Industry of Samoa. Hawaii is the best place to learn such goal for Samoa. You are correct Samoa doesn’t need a huge tourism number.
Oh my Lord, I watched the Prime Minister interview on TV and this was exactly what he was talking about. “Use Your Common Sense”. Think out of the box! If you hadn’t received a programme as yet, then you should know exactly what to do.
“Now that we’re a year old, we’re much smarter, we know how to manage our finances properly, with the resources we have we’ve managed to come this far, and we can say that we can do a lot more now,”Percell said.
I think the fear around Samoa-China debt has impacted negatively on the nations psyche and is misleading when Samoa has spent within her means. Tonga on the other hand who are proudly making waves in the NRL are struggling to keep on top of their debt repayments.
Dear Editor, Re: Agritourism Development for Samoa I refer to news items, editorial and opinions reported in your Sunday 18/11/2018, Monday 19/11/2018 and today’s editions of your newspaper, and I wish to correct and clarify some of the misinformation and misreporting therein.
Dear Editor, Re: Agritourism Park: A genius idea or another waste of money? Argo-tourism is a fantastic development and provides significant benefit to the participants and the country when it is done right.
Re: Partners in roundtable address violence Great initiative and a valuable forum. However, advocating for abolishing violence against women, implementing tougher laws, reinforcing moral teachings is one thing.
In a time when the world critically needed leadership by the planet’s biggest carbon emitters, everyone failed to show-up. Vulnerable island states—from the Pacific to the Indian Oceans and to the Caribbean—whose future ironically now lies in the hands of those who couldn’t care less, made emphatic and emotional presentations at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (UNCCC).
Samoa joined the international community last Saturday December 1 to mark the 2018 World AIDS Day with a parade, a float and speeches by dignitaries including Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sailele Malielegaoi. Our reporter Yolanda Lavata’i met members of the public to get their views on the deadly disease and what should be done.
Think a minute… Buzzards and bees are very different in their eating habits. Buzzards fly circling above looking for animals that are either hurt or dead. Then they swoop down to tear and feast on it until it is gone.
A muamua le viiga o le Atua, auā o le fa’amoemoe ua taunu’u o le lā’au lea o le soifua.

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.
The spears flew towards the youth on the hill, whistling as they cut through the air. Grinning, Queen Medb’s general drew his sword, eager to take back to his Queen the head of this warrior whom they called the Hound of Ulster. He had no doubt his spears would find their mark.
