Petition against Education Minister submitted to Parliament

A petition of more than 1,000 signatures against the leadership of Hon ‘Akilisi Pohiva as Minister for Education and Training were presented this morning to the Speaker of the House Lord Tu’ivakano.

Dozen educators including former CEO Emily Moala Pouvalu marched with the petition to Parliament where they were welcomed by the Speaker.

Moala told local media they believed “maladministration, incompetency, destruction or embezzlement of government property” occurred while Hon Pohiva is Minister of Education.

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.
