Maulolo Tavita Amosa has finally spoken out against another Afega matai Savea Sano Malifa’s claims that he is trying to change the faalupega (traditional honorifics) of his village.

“I have the court documents of what Savea submitted. Savea wants the Aiga Sagaufaleai to comprise of just the Savea and Saena titles, and not the Ututa’aloga and Manuaifua titles.He wants those two other titles stripped of the Afega faalupega. So, in fact, he (Savea) is trying to change the faalupega of Afega, not me.”

Savea – who is editor-in-chief of the Samoa Observer newspaper – has been penning a series of biting editorials against Maulolo, published in his newspaper. Among some of the claims he makes, he accused Maulolo’s “Chinese grandfather” of coming to his village with nothing.

“All that anyone knows is that his grandfather was a Chinese coolie, and as we all know Chinese coolies do not care about government, churches, matai titles or of being made matai either,” he wrote.

“My family has suffered for many years from Savea’s one-sided writings in his newspaper. Oftentimes they wanted to retaliate but I tell them to be patient. I tell you now, it is Savea who is dividing this village not me.”

On recent photographs published by the Samoa Observer of ghostly women appearing on the village council billboard, Maulolo said that these images were “proven fakes”.

“They were doctored images manufactured on cellphones and stored in the Samoa Observer computers. The women look like palagis. There were never any palagi women in Afega in the olden days. It was a deliberate attempt by Savea to mislead and muddy the waters in Afega.”

Maulolo’s claims have been endorsed by two billboard experts – including the company who built it. They concluded that the Samoa Observer images were bogus.

Maulolo was speaking at the commissioning of the village’s publication, Faiga Faavae o Afega, Laws and Standards of Afega last Thursday afternoon.
