National healing

Media writers have side tracked the focus of my intention towards National Healing, even so I still maintain my belief that these TRUTHS which my questions seek to know are permanent elements for true and lasting reconciliations. Reconciliation is Forgiveness and those who masterminded the crises need national forgiveness. Remember, the Theme is National Healing,…

Sikua vs Soga

Dear Editor – Veteran politicians mudslinging on media. The political trait displayed by Dr Sikua has sunken to a new low, a deplorable ebb indeed. National leaders should be continuously reminded that you are not only representing a small portion of our country but that of every single individual who calls this beautiful country home.…

The Benefits of growing through Adversity

In my presentation last week, we began to look at examples from the Bible on the benefits of growing through adversity. This week, we will continue to look at some more examples from the Bible to affirm to us the benefits of growing through adversity. We often resist God’s work in our lives. We shrink…

SIPA’s policy and practise

Precise truth

Stand a man of scrupulousness and not spinelessness. It would now appear that someone has something pivotal to say for the…

Criticism on High Court delays

Dear Editor – We refer to the Solomon Star News headline on Monday 11th July 2016, Issue No. 6328, of criticisms of delays in the High Court in relation to logging matters costing the Government “millions” in log export taxes. While not seeking to downplay the very serious effects of delay in hearing matters coming…

Emergency obstetric care

Dear Editor – Early on in my police career, spent in several African countries, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia), Swaziland, briefly Lesotho and latterly in Sierra Leone, it was often a sad occurrence to witness maternal mortality due to a shortage of doctors in rural areas and a lack of health facilities. In addition to limited…

Congratulations Real Kakamora

Dear Editor – I for one would like to come out from the silent  supporters of the Real Kakamora players and express my joy and acknowledgment to the Real Kakamora officials and players. I must honest to say here that Real Kakamora team give Makira a very previous gift of pride for their outstanding performance…

True peace and Reconciliation

It is scary reading the Leader of Independent Group claims and for now accusations against the Prime Minister. So what is next? Digging a stinky dead animal out from its pit may be not a good idea. Nevertheless, on one hand it could heal the wounds and on the other hand only time will tell.…
