  1. Am no fan of Dean Jonas, but if the PM is going to tell him, shape up or ship out, there are other minister in his cabinet also not performing, like the minister of roads, minister of housing and minister of education and the minister of APUA to name a few.

  2. Though I am not a fan of Dean Jonas , you want to tell me that his action/inaction is so much more egregious that the rest of cabinet members/ministers that he has to go?
    Let us all remember gravity.

  3. It would seem like Personality conflict judging from media Caption .. Majority of workers not in favor
    So relieve duties
    However having been elected The ultimate removal
    seems Rash
    However People’s Buisiness is of paramount
    Let’s investigate it’s Toxic
