I find it preposterous that the Maasina Forum should be calling for Indepedence for Malaita on behalf of all Malaitans. Who gave them the mandate? I certainly did not give them any mandate to speak on my behalf on any topic, including independence. I am sure the other 99.95 percent plus of Malaitans also have the brains to make their own decisions on any matter of importance pertaining to our country.
