Medical checks in NZ

Samoa PM remains in hospital, says thanks for prayers

That’s the latest update from his Office, according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Prime Minister and Cabinet’s Press Secretary.

 Issued in Samoan, the statement said Prime Minister Tuilaepa is still being monitored in New Zealand following his medical evacuation from the Moto’otua Hospital last Friday.

 The evacuation was a precautionary measure recommended by medical doctors in Samoa. The government has kept his medical condition under wraps.

 Last night’s statement quoted the Prime Minister as saying the medical tests and checks are progressing well.
