Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa ,20/06/2018

The Tonga National Volleyball Committee yesterday dismissed their secretary – Makanesi Pale.

Speaking to Radio Tonga News the President of the committee – Tevita Siale said, Pale’s dismissal was based on his involvement in political issues which was against the committee’s constitution.

This was after Makanesi represented the committee to a sport’s federations meeting while the president was not in the country.

Committee members alleged Pale for leaking information being discussed in the meeting and this has caused misunderstandings among related stakeholders.

Siale said, he has previously warned Pale on the issue.

Meanwhile Pale strongly believes that his dismissal is unofficial because he is yet to receive any evidence or official letter for his dismissal.

Pale disagreed that releasing information from the meeting on social media can be classified as breaching the committee’s constitution.

Makanesi Pale believes, that his dismissal is a personal attack because of his political view about the current government.
