A Chinese Embassy official in Suva, speaking on condition of anonymity, claims that the dictator Frank Bainimarama is ‘very sick’ and undergoing medical treatment on mainland China.
The official says that this would be confirmed when the dictator fails to present the 2011 Budget to the nation.
As we reported earlier, the dictator collapsed at the Nadi airport on his way to China. The pro-regime newspapers and other media outlets, have been quoting the dictator’s statements which, the Chinese official claims emanated from Fiji.
“Have you seen the Fijian leader on Fiji Television?” asked the Chinese official, suggesting that the dictator is too frail to publicly show his face to the nation.
According to other sources, especially in the Prime Minister’s Office, the likes of Ratu Epeli Ganilau and others are jumping ship because they are acutely aware of the dictator’s frail state of health. In other words, if anything unexpected happens to the dictator, they are hoping to re-surface in other guises to continue swindling the nation, while promising lip-service to return the nation to democracy in the foreseeable future.
When asked why the dictator has stopped visiting India for treatment, the sources in the Prime Minister’s Office claim that he fears that after he ‘liu muried’ his former illegal Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry by putting him on trial for fraud and money laundering, the Indian doctors might exact revenge by “administering wrong medicine to him”.
Basically, since making that infamous dash through the cassava patch following the 2000 mutiny, the dictator’s heart beat has been running high – non stop!
The Chinese are now trying to apply all sorts of treatment, including acupuncture, to keep the dictator going, as they themselves are fleecing Fiji in the guise of ‘aid and development’.
We hope the Chinese doctors have given the dictator a book of sayings by Confucius, of which one reads as follows: “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”
