Talk is cheap

Dear Editor,

I read the Letter to the Editor by Roger Nault (June 21). Governor Kep Chuktema has been working actively and vigorously to administer to more than 2 million people in Phnom Penh, including rich and poor, and utilizing actions stipulated by and in accordance with the laws of the country.
It is easy to criticize, but you should understand the law before speaking because that is proper behaviour. You don’t need to tell us that it is raining when we are standing in the rain.

I do countless jobs with and on behalf of the poor, and I know what is good or bad for the country’s situations. If you have ever been in hot water with us, perhaps you imagine that the water is cool.

It is not difficult to write something bad about someone in a newspaper. The governor does his job to please the people of this city and across the country. It is clear that no one could satisfy everyone in the world.

Long Dimanche
Assistant to Governor Kep Chuktema Phnom Penh
