Confirmed:Governor returns home tonight.

The Governor’s Office has confirmed that Governor Lolo Moliga will be returning home on tonight’s Hawaiian Air.

Chief of Staff Fiu Johnny Saelua told KHJ News this afternoon that its true Governor Lolo will be arriving this evening.

Yesterday Senate President Pro Tem Nuanuaolefeagaiga Saoluaga Nua said during a discussion concerning Governor Lolo’s health, that he had a note on his desk saying that the governor would be returning home tonight.

The discussion was prompted by a request from Senator Satele Galu Satele for a written report concerning the governor’s health to be provided to the Senate.

Responding to follow up questions this morning concerning his request, Satele told KHJ News that what he really wants to know is whether the governor is physically fit to continue as the territory’s chief executive.

According to the Tuala-tai senator, from what he’s learned, the governor now requires dialysis. And if that’s the case, a medical determination is needed to ascertain if he’s fit to continue in the role of governor.

And Satele pointed out that there’s procedures for the Fono to take in making such a determination and taking appropriate action if the governor is incapable of continuing in his elected position.

Meanwhile Acting Governor Lemanu Peleti Mauga, who has steered ASG since Governor Lolo left in early February, except for two brief absences, issued a memo to the cabinet today stating: “It is most fitting and appropriate that we take to our knees and raise our voices in prayer thanking God for the purity of His love, His perpetual goodness and His never ending love for all of us especially restoring our Governor’s health and his continued gift of life so Governor Lolo Moliga can finish God’s plan for him to complete.

“Accordingly, a Prayer Service will be held on Friday, July 12, at 9 am at the Faga’alu CCCAS Church. I am therefore calling on all of you to please join us in this Prayer Service so we can collectively thank God through our prayers for His generosity and kindness channeled through doctors, nurses and healthcare providers who had a hand in our governor’s recovery, renewed vitality, new leash on life and rekindled spirit.”

  1. And?

    And? Are we supposed to clap and sing? When he wants to endanger the lives of youth and women by rescinding the Jonathan Fanene decision on employment? Ha! Think again. This has got to be the most unwelcoming welcome for any governor returning from off island.

    Talanei had an article where it describes Lt. gov firing Jonathan Fanene after viewing files of the charges against him. I remember writing in the comments section thanking the lt. gov for making the decision and for his stance against violence on women. I also sarcastically wrote, “i bet if it were Lolo, he would’ve given Jonny boy a chance and say let him continue as director until he is proven guilty by the courts. Even after seeing the same damaging files and pictures on the damage to the wife and the sister. Well that was all proven couple days ago when he had a little riff with lt. gov about the firing.

    That right there completely describes that he no longer has the correct thought process and mind frame to continue his duties as governor. Dialysis last 4-5 hrs and at 3 days a week. When and where does he have time to show up for work. And after the treatment, the patient mentally is not all there for another 3 hrs (recovery time). Thats a full 8 hr shift. And no Mr. Lolo in the capacity of a governor, you cannot work from home forever until your time is over.

    DO THE RIGHT THING IF YOU REALLY LOVE YOUR COUNTRY AND PEOPLE, PASS THE TORCH TO THE LT. GOV AND RETIRE. YOU HAVE DONE AND SERVED YOUR PEOPLE ALREADY. ITS TIME TO HANG YOUR CLEATS SIR. GIVE US THE OPPORTUNITY TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

    I agree with Sen. Satele for bringing this up by the way.
