QUICK RECOVERY

APIA, Samoa (November 2, 1997 - PACNEWS)---The leader of the chiefly Tumua ma Pule ma Aiga anti-government movement, Faamatuainu Talamailei, has wished Prime Minister Tofilau Eti Alesana, a quick recovery.

Tofilau, while in Scotland for a meeting of Commonwealth leaders last week, was admitted to the Royal Infirmary Hospital in Edinburgh suffering from a leg infection.

Faamatuainu said Samoans wished the Prime Minister well --Tofilau suffers from gout-- because they are all related.

"We want him to be healthy to answer to issues raised by the protest march," he said.

An estimated 5,000 Samoans marched through Samoa's capital of Apia last week to protest government corruption, including the illegal sale of passports, and poor economic conditions.
