Dear Editor – The Island Sun heading “ Political Appointee Sacked” in reference to Mr. Martin Housanau is not correct.
The fact is that Mr. Housanau’s contract had expired and OPMC decided not to re-engage his service. A letter sent to him last week was to this effect.
The use of the words “sacked” or “terminated” in Sasako’s article implies that he had a valid contract when that was not the case here.
Appreciate if your reporters do check with me on such issues before going to the public.
Mr. Andrew Donua Muaki
Special Secretary to the Prime Minister
