Sackings at Suva Council may not be over

More sackings are expected at the Suva City Council after that of administrator Vijendra Prakash last week.

Coupfourpointifve has been told the Permanent Secretary for Local Government and Prakash's cousin, Ram Chandar, is in line to lose his job.

Chandar had vigorously defended Prakash in local media before his sacking.

On Monday he falsely credited the refurbishment of the library in the capital city and the Suva municipal market to Prakash saying it happened under his leadership. He was briefly highlighting a report compiled after a review of the performance of the Administrators.

Sources say Chandar, who had strongly recommnded the appointment of Suva City Council's Human Resources Manager Joe Hewson despite his fraudulent activities, misled people on national television by giving credit to Prakash for the two projects because both were the initiatives of the Council dissolved by the interim regime.

Meanwhile the Town Clerk of Nasinu and a stuanch Fiji Labour Party supporter, Satish Kumar, has been suspended by the town's Administrator Meli Bogilega.

Sources say this may not be the end of the matter with both Kumar and Bogileka's necks possibly on the chopping block.

Bogileka was recently charged with driving under the influence of excessive alcohol but sources say he is likely to be investigated for nepotism like Vijendra Prakash.
