“We have been taken for a ride by two individuals, Colin Yow. He has done a very serious thing and that is he has caused division amongst the indigenous population of this country. The other one is Ron Sumsum the captain of Solomon Airlines who resided for a long time in the country until he has also caused inconveniences. We seem not to barred ourselves against infiltration which is encroaching upon the sovereignty and sovereign affairs of this country.”
