Dear Editor – I thank you for publishing my article on the paper of the 8/7/17 issue No. 6639 which was never the case with Island Sun.
To further add on to the issues raised as a concern for this nation which I touch base on in my last article, I would like to put forward to the Prime Minister and the DCCG , questions to answer for clarification.
How did Mr Sogavare get the post of Prime Minister-ship?
Is it through corruption?
He did not have a political party as well as not a wing leader of any political Party.
Is Solomon Islands still sleeping that she cannot hear and see how special is Mr Sogavare to treat this nation in such a way?
The DCCG made a narrow escape from being toppled last year.
At the verge of the collapse of the DCCG as a result of a mass walk away by some five wise men, there came another five foolish men to keep the DCCG going for their own gain.
During the political turmoil, I knew that four Asians stepped in to the rescue of the DCCG government from falling, with $1.8 million.
He feels very comfortable to end his term in office.
Had it not been for this $1.8 million from these Asians, DCCG would repeat its track record of 2006.
However we have to realise that DCCG is a puppet to the Asians who exploited our land resources.
It may be for this reason that the DCCG had approved the Asian led organisation to a remuneration of 5% tax out of every shipment of logs leaving the country.
There were organisations established in the country too but I find that such had never been the case to any organisation except the SIFA.
They were even given medals during the Queens’ Birth day or the independent anniversary.
I am still wondering why Malaita maintains the DPM’s post since the ethnic tension.
I hope others have seen what I have seen.
Western leaders have played a very smart game just by causing an internal destabilisation amongst the Malaitan MPs as well as other provinces.
When the tide is high they step in as peace makers and claim leadership.
Mr Maelanga and group are you cowards to take up the PM’s post now?
Many years on, the DPM’s post does not speak well of you the way things look. If you can take over to prove you are a capable parliamentarian.
Another issue of great concern is Honiara is flooded with Chinese who also owned the properties like houses and business.
One Chinese owned more than one property in Honiara.
They have money so they run very fast when an indigenous Solomon Islander moves like a turtle on a land.
How will the Prime Minister address this issue so that the taking ownership of Honiara is meaningful and real?
In many shops, Kai bars, and Hardware shops in Honiara and elsewhere in the country, you will find that there are Chinese coming all the way from China just to be shop keepers.
They came in as certified accountants, administrators etc, when they do not even know how to write their names and to the extreme that they do not know how to speak Pidgin English.
Honiara should not be called the capital of Solomon Islands but a Mini Chinese capital in Solomon Islands.
It won’t be long and you will see disgruntled home base citizens react for which I want the Immigration and Labour divisions to tackle.
Again on the SINPF, I am enquiring about the $180 million could be under loan or so that has been granted to the Sol tuna in Noro Western Province.
What about it now, written off?
I still maintain that Malaita’s contribution must be withdrawn before it is too late.
Malaita could hardly borrow that amount but this is their money. Will other provinces have a share in the business?
On the national projects for Malaita, the Prime Minister must be from Malaita before it happens.
So again I call on the deputy Prime Minister to take over to make a way for the Malaita longed for development.
Noro town is next to Honiara in terms of development but they don’t have man power.
