Dear Editor – Allow me space in your paper to pen down my point of view of the political crisis, with last week’s mass resignation of government ministers.
Bodo Dettke and Douglas Ete after convincing the other ministers to resign from the government thought that they would overthrow the Sogavare led government and form a new government.
Both seem to aim for the prime minister or deputy’s role.
However, I’m very sorry to say that they have miserably failed in their plans.
The government is stable again and has the number to beat the motion of no confidence.
I would like to advise the Mr Dettke and Mr Ete that next time if they don’t want to be reshuffled as ministers, DO NOT ACCEPT MINISTERIAL PORTFOLIOS but remain in the back ground as backbenchers.
Secondly, if you are sure beyond reasonable doubt that the prime minister had misappropriated public funds, report the matters to the police so that a proper investigation can be carried out for the prosecution.
Or don’t you have faith and trust in our police force?
If you don’t trust our police force then use your power, terminate them all.
Then both of you can join the police force and make full investigation into the matters and prosecute the prime minister.
Thirdly, what you did was like sour music to the ears of us rural dwellers and street people. It is not a time for a change of government; we want to see all national projects fulfilled.
Lastly you better stop your monkey games and work closely with the other MPs and the government for the sake of the nation.
God bless Solomon Islands!
