The initial design had a two-storey building that was going to cost $42million. However, Cabinet changed the plan and settled for a $10million single dwelling
Yesterday, Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, whose government has come under much scrutiny over the delays in the construction, officially opened the $10million project.
The opening was music to the ears for farmers and vendors, who have had to brave the boiling sun and the rain to sell their produce and crops, for the past few years.
“I’m extremely grateful,” farmer Seve Ioane told the Samoa Observer.
