Lolo returns after extended absence for medical treatment

APIA, Samoa (Talamua, August 4, 2014) – After five months absence, American Samoa’s Governor Lolo Letalu Moliga has returned to the territory.

The governor left in February for a meeting in Washington D.C. but fell ill and was admitted to hospital.

The government hasn’t given any information on his illness but media reports says it’s understood he had a heart procedure while in hospital in D.C.

The Governor later travelled to Honolulu where he was also admitted to hospital and had been there since undergoing treatment as an out-patient.

The Governor has returned as the Senate is drafting a resolution questioning his extended absence.
