Gov. admitted to Honolulu hospital for observation


The Office of the Governor has reported that Gov. Lolo M. Moliga was admitted to a hospital in Honolulu, Hawai’i, for further observation Friday morning.

The press release did not identify which hospital the governor has been admitted to, but noted “the Governor went to his doctor’s appointment, and his attending physician decided to admit the Governor, for further observation.”

The media release from the governor’s office states, “The Governor is expected to return to the territory next week.”

According to the press release, “Acting Gov. Lemanu Mauga said that the Governor traveled from Washington, D.C. and arrived in Hawai’i on Wednesday.” It was noted the governor had been in Washington D.C. to attend a series of meetings with several staff members and agency directors.

Samoa News understands the staff members and government directors were expected to return on Friday’s Hawaiian Air flight. The press release did not say if any of them were remaining back in Honolulu to attend the Governor and the First Lady.
