Yesterday, former National Federation Party President Tupou Draunidalo scrutinized the absence of certain NGO’s who are quick to comment on other matters but not this one.

Tupou says some of them are anti-vaxxers and when the comment was made to almost half the population, they were nowhere to be seen or heard.
