Dear Editor,

Alfred Saako's original letter to the editor on this subject was difficult to follow, not because the subject matter was complex but because his arguments embarrassingly lacked logic. It is comical that his only response to my contribution is that one needs to have been an MP to understand the principle of separation of power.

I am fortified in my view having subsequently read the articles authored by the Speaker of Parliament and the Attorney-General, an eminent politician and the country's senior legal adviser no less.

Alfred Sasago continues to express views that demonstrate surprising misunderstanding of our system of government, Clearly his time as MP has not helped.

I have no intention of engaging further if this is all the former MP has to offer.
