Tourism school at SICHE

I learned with dismay the fact that the Ministry of Culture and Tourism has seen it fit to hire an expatriate working with RAMSI at the Prison Services to teach Hospitality studies specifically house-keeping at the new Tourism school at SICHE. What happened to our locally qualified people. As far as I know, one of my trainers here at Solomon Host Ms. Alexandria Hilly is one of the very few qualified locals in this area. One would think the MInistry would recognise and appreciate this fact and get Ms. Hilly to coordinate this area considering she's been teaching the subject single handedly for the past year and half. Bata nomoa, white man na clever and save samting...Sad attitude...
