Ladies Fusitu’a and Fielakepa forced to resign

Lady ‘Eseta Fusitu’a who was Chair of Tonga Broadcasting Commission was told to resign effective on Monday October 19 at 4.30pm.

Lady Tuna Fielakepa one of the directors of the Tonga Broadcasting Commission was also told to submit her resignation on the same day as Fusitu’a.

The cabinet decision means that if the duo did not hand in their resignations by Monday they would be sacked.

Tonga’s Minister of Police Hon Pohiva Tu’i’onetoa told Kaniva News the cabinet understood Fusitu’a and Fielakepa were seeking legal action on the matter as they rejected government’s previou requests to voluntarily tender their resignations as board members.

Tu’i’onetoa said the new government wanted to put into place its policies and schemes and the decision  against Fusitu’a and Fielakepa was made so that a new board of directors  would do the work.

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.
