And what next of the KF v Samoa Police Authority story?
And what next of the KF v Samoa Police Authority story?

Your freedom? What about my freedom? Your rights? What about our rights? It takes a fair bit of anticipation.


And so con tinues the King Faipopo [KF] Supporters and Non-Supporters debate!

As I pause to reflect on the latest happenings in Samoa, it never ceases to amaze me that people don't seem to stop and think about what they are saying before they say it..

KF SUPPORTERS : It's his mum's last day

NON-SUPPORTERS : Yes, what about his last public post?

A few weeks before flying to Samoa for the funeral? Did he even think of how all his mouthings would have impacted his target's [PM] own kids and families?

And it how it could possibly make it his last day of so-called patriotic freedom?

KF SUPPORTERS : He's got rights

NON SUPPORTERS : What about our rights?

KF SUPPORTERS : It's his freedom of speech

NON-SUPPORTERS : What about our freedom and rights to protect our ears from hearing all the verbal pollution?

E manatua ai aso la sa o'u alu ai i trials o le au lakapi a aoga i Samoa ..Lau le 'au e le Coach e le pikia a'u,ae piki le isi tama. Ou fai loa i le coach palagi "What about my future?"ae tali mai le coach "What about his future?".

E faapena foi se lagona ile tulaga o loo vavao ai . Fai mai isi ole 'fight for your your right? O isi fai mai ole 'freedom of speech'? O le fesili, o lona uiga ea e te manatu e tuu faasaoloto oe ma isi tagata e ala lea i le fai o au/outou video ma e fa'aali lou lagona ise auala masoa ma tuga ma e manatu oloo e tautala/saunoa i lou oe a right ?(sa'o). Ae a faapefea foi le la uso, poo le tua'a o si la uso, o lo o fai agai i ai le faatinoina ole tulaga ua e manatu lava oe o lou right?

What about his/their rights? Pe o le na e te mana'o/finagalo e tu'u oe/latou e fai na o lou/a outou right?

And to add to it..What about the rights of law-enforcement officials to carry out due diligent duties?

I mean, did you really think that the law-enforcement officials will release their subject , especially a highly-publicised case like this, without claiming a bond?

Yes, in this case, the officials requested passport and possibly travel documents to be surrendered, as bond before release of the subject?

And I mean, so what if it was a last-minute decision by the officials?

Why could you not even anticipate that?

Or were you too busy trying to gather public attention for your cause that none of you even thought to stop and strategise nor attempt to forecast what the officials would demand of their/your 'non-local subject' ?

So what? So what? So what?And what ? So what will happen after the burial? Let's wait and see...

#RestInLove to your dearly beloved mother my friend Mr Paulo #Families are eternal #And don't forget, it only takes 30seconds to pause, stop and think.

Manuia lenei weekend ile tapuaiga malu a si o tatou atunuu, manuteleina faiva o feagai ai

“I am extremely proud of the journey and very honoured to be leading SouthSeas at this important milestone.

“Sharing the journey and looking forward to another 20 years is our mission. It has been a wonderful 20 years. The next 20th anniversary will be even better.”

Malele Paulo, commonly knownly as King Faipopo
Malele Paulo, commonly knownly as King Faipopo

Samoa-based media platform, Samoa Global News, reported this afternoon that Malele Paulo, known publicly as King Faipopo, was arrested earlier this afternoon by police, while in Samoa for his mother's funeral.

Paulo has gained a very large following in recent years over his social media videos and posts accusing Samoa Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi, of assassination amongst several other accusations.

Speaking from the Police Station in Apia, on a live-video on his Facebook page, a somewhat mellowed Paulo urged his followers to pay due respect to authority and let 'the police carry out their duties'.

Samoa Global News in their report mentioned that Paulo's legal representative, Unasa Iuni Sapolu, stated that King Faipopo has been arrested and detained on two holding charges.

According to the report, Unasa explained that King Faipopo "came to Apia to take his mom’s body from Sefo’s funeral parlour, but police arrested him from Digicel while trying to get a local sim card.”

OPINION: The Cabinet will soon discuss new incentives to encourage people to switch to electric vehicles, Associate Transport Minister Julie Anne Genter revealed last week.

Don't expect it to join the likes of Britain and France in setting a date for banning the sale of conventional petrol and diesel cars.

But there may be a better way that might prove less divisive than an outright ban, which would be to set a date by which, say, half of all new car imports and quarter of all second-hand imports would need to be electric.
