Why need the $2 million from government when its directors are receiving hefty salaries. I trust that the money they need is to pay for fuel and not foot the salary of its directors. That would be the biggest crime against Tongan taxpayers. A writer to the editor in response to my last letter wrote that we elect representatives to speak on our behalf. - Freddy Kavaha‘apai

Many thanks for the opportunity to continue sharing comments with your readers. Just a short response to Lady Swan and Joe Smith. I believe Swan must have floated to the north antarctica when Tonga power was floated in the international financial market. Of course, not one of the thousands of Tongans you quoted were interested in the power then. - Taasi Holiday

Shoreline has proven it's credibility that it can generate and distribute power for the country. This is a fact that no one can deny. Shoreline has delivered its mission in a professional and high quality standard to the country and this is written everywhere as businesses and homes functions well with stable supply of electricity. - Taasi Holiday
