Radio Australia International announced the decision made by the President of the Solomon Islands Teachers Union Sampson Faisi for the teachers to remain on strike protest because the government is unstable and hard to trust anymore.
The government failed to keep their promise of paying back teachers as they agreed to do last year and again in February this year.
The teachers have walked out of classrooms after knowing that the government again failed to keep their promise. They have no trust in government at all.
Alas the government pointed out to different things and blame others as they attempt to keep the teachers in classrooms but the teachers refused to listen to the government. They need to see the payback payment first.

About The Author
Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.
Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
