Morupisi's troubles with the law


Carter Morupisi was once a man in the public service who the public loved to hate. Once deemed very powerful and ‘arrogant’, he surely knew how to get people in their feelings without much care.

He then moved to the Ministry of Infrastructure, Science and Technology October in 2009 where he assumed the role of Permanent Secretary.
