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.

Women in Parliament

Women in government or representation of women in Parliament are often quite hard for many to accept in this country, however since the national general election is just around the corner, it is the right time to give it a focus again.
