Senate President Lolo ...
Senate President Lolo Moliga. The high freight charged by the MV Sili is driving the cost of living in Manu'a beyond the means of residents, Senate President Lolo Moliga said. Lolo
has written to Manua District Governor Tufele Lia suggesting that he
call a district meeting to discuss the freight rates. Lolo
told the District Governor he
doesn't recall the Department of Port Administration ever calling a public hearing to set the freight charges for Manu'a and Swains. During a trip to Manu'a on 20 November, Lolo
witnessed a family with a container that smaller than one quarter of a 20 ft container being charged close to $US2000 to have their container shipped on the MV Sili. He
said the freight costs have driven the prices of goods in Manu'a four to five times higher than the prices on Tuutila and Aunuu. At these prices, he
said no one wanted to live on Manu'a. He
said the people of Manu'a are questioning the purpose of the MV Sili's existence, a government vessel whose trips over are subsidised by special appropriation.Most stores in Manu'a are selling small bottles of water at $US1 to $US1.50, soda for $US1 a five pound box of chicken at between $US7 and $US9.
