    The board has increased prices throughout Tonga by 5.21 seniti per kWh, to be effective from Shoreline’s September consumer billing cycle, and rejected a 3 seniti per kWh recommendation from the Minister of Finance who is the chairman of TEPB.

    ‘Etita,

    Each time an expert from abroad arrives to enlighten and civilize the …“barbarians…” of the Friendly Kingdom, it gives me the creeps. Please do not ask me why. Idiots usually feel that way about people. There should not be any surprise that I fit in perfectly when I feel that way. The latest was the visit by Ms Imrana Jalal, a Human Rights Advisor for the Pacific Regional Rights Resource Team. Please put your guns away. That is uncalled for. I support human rights as well.
