SOGA MUST STAY

This is not a response to Johnson Tata`s crap, as he did not even reply accordingly to my arguments, however just my interest to sort out his confusions. In the core perspective, Mr Tata is confused...

Soga must GO!

I refer to Watson Joey L's article above in which he contended that Soga must stay. Apparently, he substantiated his contention towards the end of his letter in that he defended Soga as having to stand...

Sogavares' assurance to Boyers

Sir, How could Boyers be so certain that Sogavare will keep his words on the two issues. Time and time again have we seen agreements signed dishonored. How could Boyers expect Sogavare to honor these...

Another Bite the Dust!

Two of the most outspoken critics of the Sogavare government, from the very beginning, have lost their minds! Peter Boyers and Sir. Allan Kemakeza criticized Sogavare over various government policies;...

SOGA MUST STAY

The manipulation of partisan bias is of non interest on the comment subjected by the above. It is very much assumed that some wise people are haunted by millions of fallacies with their descriptive politics...

Solair FC and Ben Hull's article

If Mr. Ben Hull was refering to the time I was previously FC at Solair from Dec 1995 to August 2000, I think you should check your records properly. Also check the composition of that Commission. In those...

Soga Must Go

In a situation like our current political mess, we have a not so helpful culture of being loyal to distric, island, mission or ethnic group affiliation regardless who is right and who is wrong. Therefore,...

Cabinet decisions

Sir, As war of words continue to be slugged to and fro within the circle of this political crisis, the pretext of "cabinet decision" is the soothing term. All in the name of cabinet decisions. One wonders,...

Governor General not keeping his own words

Governor General not keeping his own words When the constitutional crisis started last week, the Governor-General challenged the prime minister that he needed to prove his majority by appointing more...

BAHAI CENTRE

Dear Editor, I am saddened to hear the news about selling alcohol at the Bahai Centre - I am a Bahai International Pioneer- I've been in the Solomons for almost 3 years now and was wondering why this...

Illegal Log Shipment

I am disgusted how corrupted our leaders are. Now not even the law enforcers are not bendable. The Police commisioner took order from politicians to release the illigal shipment. The Attorney General...

Political Crisis

While the current political crisis reflects the very nature and extent of the adopted system, it also depicts, as one commentator here has said, 'immature' conduct on the part of certain 'rubber' politicians...

SOGA MUST STAY

Of the many subjects of political issues in our country, the mere unforeseen notion of a nation's sovereignty is an important subject to consider. Importantly, the impetus interest has been on national...

Ministers' Resignation

Ministers' Resignation: A sign of political maturity As a nation we are accustomed to see members of parliament jostling for an opportunity to be appointed ministers of the crown. This objective means...

political twist

As an ordinary SI citizen my concern is to see the politiclal row resolve. The issue about the purchase of more G-vehicles which is central to accusation between the PM and Mr. Lilo is a waste of time...

Sogavare must go!

The current political crisis is described by many as an "impasse" or something that has no "exit" or "end". I do not agree with that. A political crisis is not an impasse; it is a crisis that can be solved...

Solomon Islands Politics is Twisting

When I was at High School some 10 years ago, a senior Solomon Islands academic described Solomon Islands politics as a 'twisting tale'. Today, such a description is still true. Others described the situation...

Leadership in Solomon Islands

The current situation in the country brings the phenomenon of leadership into conceptual focus? Did this leadership occur in a complex process by which Mr Sogavare influences others to accomplish a mission,...

Sogavare has himself to blame

Dear Editor, The PM appears to have chosen to continuously defend his friends and cronies at the cost of his post. I pity him because of all the good advices he has received, he seems to have chosen...

Solomon Islands Politics

The current political impasse goes on to show how immature, unprofessional and lacking in in principle some of our leaders are. A member who resigned from the government yesterday suddenly comes back...

CALL ON PM

Dear Editor, I think the political turmoil should be left to our Parliament members to solve. The Solomon Islands Council of Trade Unions (SICTU), at this point of time, should not intervene because they...

Conflicting Info being reported.

Funny how I cannot seem to get the Solomon Island Paper up on the internet the last couple of days, anyways a mate of mine who works in the Solomons says the paper this morning (Friday) claims the opposition...

Defected Ministers position

It seems that only the principal leaders of both the government and the opposition continue to claim its one has a number over the other.They both claim for the same people.This leaves the people they...

MASINA Forum

The call by the Masina Forum for all the Malaitan MPs to join the Sogavare's Government is quite interesting. I do not believe the call by Masina Forum. Their call is just a reflection of the views of...

Get your Facts Right!

I would like to clarify to Sa'omoana that I have to stop blaming the Brits. coz its all in the past.I know that coz we can never bring the past back.I bet that you [Sa'omoana]must be from the Solos. Okay...

Hawea, don't blame Brit!

S. Hawea's reply to Morris Kakea's short article entitle "Institutionalizing our ethnicity" desperately missed the whole point and the fact of the matter. Hawea needs to stop blaming Britain because we...

A comment on Party Politics

On the core impetus of this rumble for political power, its only speculations and lack of professionalism that is a triggering subject. The lack of confidence on the current government is not really the...

Right move at the wrong time

It may not be of any use for government ministers to switch sides when the current government term is just about to lapse. It would do their reputation good if they remain on the gov't side to complete...

The Power Hunger Crisis

The political turmoil currently waved our political leaders can be best described as Hunger for power.The integrity of our leaders to lead and to serve our growing nation has been undermined by hunger...

Response to Morris on the issue about "Institutionalizing our Ethnicity"

I would just like to state that in your letter you mentioned something about how races in Fiji have been crystallized.You mentioned how Fijian schools have been based on a ethnic level, you mentioned that...

Solomon Island politics

It is often seen as a normal practice in Solomon Islands politics for the government to change without completing its term and even implementing its policies. Good government with sound policies emerge...

Denying Moti justice?

It is true that the Moti affair has gone on for way longer than is necessary, but this is only because Julian Moti QC has decided (it would seem) not to exercise his (natural justice) right to defend himself...

Seeking the truth

At least both parties are consistent on one issue and that is to call parliament to deal with the issue. We all want the truth so let the bell sound for the next session of parliament instead of tearing...

Let democracy prevail

I think the current political standoff in the government of the day needs to assessed against the backdrop of what it has been doing so far. For one, so far the government has done very little for the...

Solomon Giants?

Dear Editor, I have seen websites detailing a presence of a giant form of human living on the Island of Guadalcanal. I would like to know if this is true that there are still giants living there. ...

Time to recognize Mr. Moti's rights

Our leaders have stated time and again that their actions and decisions have always been in accordance with the law. This sense of duty to be bound by laws should be applauded. So dramatic has the trend...

Institutionalizing our ethnicity?

I am saddened to hear that the Solomon Islands is taking the same path Fiji took earlier, and which they have continued to face up to its challenges today. Fiji at its formation institutionalized race...

The GG's summoning of Kauhue

Dear Editor, I am surprised that Ella Kauhue heed the call of the GG and went up to Government House. Let me say that no citizen should be so naive to heed the call of the GG or the Prime Minister since...

The summoning of Ella Kauhue

Having looked at the present arguments forwarded by both senior women in the country. May I suggest Kauhue to reveal everything to the press so ordinary citizen may have a clear picture of what she encountered...

Former PM found guilty

I was surprised to read about somebody who was once our leader found guilty of committing crimes. It's something to be ashamed off. Even the status of his name (Sir) is very contradictory to the activities...
