Numbering of Tikopian Chiefs Uncultural

Dear Editor – We Tikopians are quite known for our respect, kindness and other good cultural behaviours. We are generally peaceful, non-hostile citizens of our country. These are some of the products of good relationship between the chiefs and the people. However, these good relationships will keep on diminishing if the above subject is not…

Moti’s compensation

Dear Editor – At the outset, it appears that the issue regarding Moti’s compensation has drawn both legal and political overtones.  I am not privy to Moti’s employment contract with the Solomon Islands Government. Hence, if he is therefore claiming for dues he is entitled to under that contract, then perhaps that is something the…

Sogavare’s Moti
