"The mayor of Magiagi village, in the suburbs of the capital Apia, Tuiono Uini Keni, was served with a termination letter last Friday. Tuiono believes he sacked because he supported the village council’s decision to reject the installation of Electric Power Corporation cash power meters to every household. Magiagi families have owed unpaid electricity bills to the EPC of around ten million US dollars in the past fourteen years"
