My story is as similar to yours. Your forebears were in the middle of all these. Mine just happened to be better liars. Six generations later, the story is still told as if they were happened yesterday. Somewhere in Timbuktu, USA, life is good to me. However, I am emotionally tied to a small island nation in the South Pacific.

I note with incredulity, in reading the Press Release from the Prime Minister's Office today, that Government proclaims that an, "elevated sensitivity to public sentiments was formalized in the establishment of the Commission for Public Relations". To call this a "meritorious trend" is simply hogwash in light of the fact that the Prime Minister's Office and its Chief Secretary have led the way in ignoring the decisions and recommendations of the Commissioner for Public Relations.

Good governance is what good governments do. And although "good" can be a subjective abstraction, an honest appraisal of Government procedures will show that within its legal, historical and cultural framework, the process of governing and implementing decisions have the required elements that characterize good governance. From the empowerment of the different levels of political dispensation, to the operation of the executive machinery, decisions and appointments by the Government has been carried out increasingly with a view towards inclusiveness, accountability, transparency and the rule of law.
