Palemia.com contains letters to the Prime Minister of Samoa, Tuila’epa (and a god-awful list of Samoan title names nobody outside of his inner circle of cronies can pronounce), from Palagi private investigative blogger, Dennis A. Smith.
I lived in Samoa, surviving a ‘brutal’ seven years from 2009 to September 2016, when the Palemia banned me for squealing about an inappropriate relationship with one of his CEO’s. I have blogged more than a million words, much of it relating to Samoa as seen from a Christian world view.
Central to my stay in Samoa, as with all things up there was and is a personal relationship with King Kong Tui, the man with extreme political power up there. He calls it political stability. His culture calls it diplomacy. His detractors call it corruption. Most don’t know or understand how politics actually works in Samoa. Palemia.com reveals the ‘other’ side of the man they all fear – the man they love to hate, yet the man that has their votes.
Prepare for some lively ‘fireside chats’ as I speak to the ‘Big Man” as directly as if he was in my presence himself.
A word of warning: Sensitive Samoans may be embarrassed by their leader’s conduct and dislike the attention and shame that he brings to the Samoan people and culture. You voted. I didn’t. I just speak it as it is. Except for any errors of fact, which I invite anyone to correct, if you have a problem with what I say, please take your concerns to him.
