Instead of writing it off, the government should give the RMD extra powers to collect it!!
This amount is not owed by us the wage and salary workers, this is owed by business people with political connections, who have gamed the system for years.
Shame on them, and shame on this government.
Imagine what could be achieved with an extra $18 million dollars. We could pay our police a proper wage. We could equip our hospital with all sort of necessary equipment and supplies. We could resource our schools. We could seal half of Rarotonga’s roads in “hot mix”. The list goes on, all to the betterment of all our people, not a favoured few.
This is totally irresponsible of the government
