Pita Driti ordered to take leave

The military’s Land Force Commander, Colonel Pita Driti, has been ordered to take leave.

Well-placed sources have confirmed that Driti was told to take all of his leave after he was seen talking to former Methodist Church head, the Reverend Manasa Lasaro recently. It is not known where the conversation took place.

Lasaro and former church president, Reverend Tomasi Kanailagi, are regarded as anti-regime elements by army commander and interim prime minister, Frank Bainimarama.

Bainimarama used the two powerful leaders of the Church as the main reason why he ordered the cancellation of the annual Methodist Church conference scheduled for next month.

Our sources say Driti was basically stood down as Land Force Commander. The Land Force comprises the largest force of the military, under which is he powerful 3rd Infantry Regiment (3FIR, that is led by a son of the late Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara, Ratu Tevita Uluilakeba Mara.

Coupfourpointfive has been informed that Driti was asked ordered to relinquish his uniform as well and that leave is a precursor to his inevitable termination as Land Force Commander.

Meanwhile, the standing committee of the Methodist Church was meeting late yesterday afternoon. According to a report posted on teh Fiji Village website last evening, the meeting was supposed to discuss the option of approaching Bainimarama once more to request him to allow the conference to go ahead next month.

So, who is doing the sacking around here? He has been literally disrobed of all things Fiji Military. Won’t be surprised if Church groups offer Mr. Driti some form of Liaison portfolio.
But again, should this be true, then of all the people to meet, he allows himself to be in the presence of an unrepented extreme nationalist. Sin…eh….guilt by association…or may be his pleasant personality and his Fijianess overrode his Military judgement and acumen.

When is Brigadier Aziz on the sacking list...or…is age catching up on him!

Will remind Voreqe of what happened at RKS to him.

Oh Mighty is the Lord as Voreqe and his guns are nothing in front of him.
