At the beginning of the week, a young man was jailed for life for one of the most gruesome killings to have taken place in this country in recent memory. On Monday, 24-year-old Simanu’a Manuele, of Falefa and Toamua, was jailed over the “horrific” double killing of two men, one aged 69 while another 42 at Leulumoega in November last year.
Dear Editor, The Prime Minister needs to stop his sarcastic and arrogant comments towards people as he is putting the whole country in jeopardy in the eyes of the foreigners and potential investors and donors.
Dear Editor, Re: Chamber behind Govt. on minimum wage What an absolutely stupid approach to moving the economy forward fairly, by asking business if they think the minimum wage should go up.

Think a minute...”Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” We are facing the most challenging time in human history. Our world population has exploded to 7.7 billion people! With far more people on the planet, we are running out of clean air and clean water.
