Really? You don't have to scream about something that stand-out in itself, because that achievement will obviously speak about Dr Vaea's character, his family background, his up-bringing and many more.

What cause the people to scream, was that someone or some people claim to be trust worthy, and when people put him or them in position of leadership, then strange character and worst behaviour begin to surface.

Yes, congratulate to Dr Vaea, and your achievement is a sweet aroma to your name, family, your village as well as Tongan who read this news.

Very sorry Niu and Ezy. I was quick to response, and not give it a bit more thought. Thanks, and it is good to be corrected.
