Future of illegal president, Epeli Nailatikau, under debate again

The future of the high rolling Ratu Epeli Nailatikau is back under the microscope with fresh unconfirmed reports his days as illegal president are coming to an end.

According to several people in and outside of Fiji, Nailatikau has been sent a letter by the illegal attorney general, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum, telling him that his term as president wraps up at the end of February.

Coupfourpointfive has been unable to verify the information independently, but has spoken to people who say Nailatikau has indeed been told he will no longer be president from the 28th next month. We hope to shed more light on this.

The unpopular illegal regime already has a raft of problems, not least the woes of the economy and loose ends at the camp, so it would be stupid to buy into more trouble by getting rid of Nailatikau. It's believed, though, that the hierarchy remains nervous about Nailatikau being swayed to dismiss Voreqe Bainimarama as prime minister, then going ahead and decreeing that and reinstating an interim prime minister to take the nation to elections under the 1997/98 Constitution.

Nailatikau assumed the role of president after the illegal regime abrogated the Constitution in April 2009 and 'retired' the then 88 year old president, Ratu Josefa Iloilo. He was vice-president first, becoming acting president in April, before being sworn in seven months later as president in November.

Footnote: Much easier to confirm has been this interesting tit bit (pardon the pun). Voreqe Bainimarama's favourite henchman, Siti Qiliho, who was in Sinai as the Fiji Battalion Commander, is being sent back for fraternizing with a female member of the Battalion. He's not the first to be caught out, of course. Mosese Tikoitoga, who was made Land Force Commander last year, was hauled home for impregnating one of his female staff at Commissioner Central Office, although this was never cited as the official reason for him being posted back to camp.

Picture: Epeli Nailatikau taking a bet on the Melbourne Cup stake late last year.

Please refrain from using the title of "Ratu" for this wannabe Vunivalu and wannabe President. Ratu refers to chiefs who have a vanua to govern and Presidents belong to the people and not to Voreqe, the traitor and conman.

Epeli has made some grave errors of judgement in the past by challenging for the Vunivalu title in Kubuna and by joining this misguided coup.This is the coup that condemns the Fijian chiefly system and the Fijian culture. And only a foreign "kaisi" who does not understand the vanua and hates Fijians will do all those anti Fijian acts in Fiji.

Where is the 'dina,savasava and dodonu" that this bullshit coup stands for? All these unprofessional wannabe officers behave this way (LT) because they got their ranks from kissing Voreqe's butt. People like Leweni, Driti,Naivalurua,Tikoitoga,Qiliho and co got their nose so far up Voreqe's butt that it is hard to leel where one starts and where the other ends.

Epeli is a gambling addict,Voreqe is a corrupt and power hungry addict,all the military officers are kiss-butt addicts and this coup stinks because it took the murders of innocent civilians like Rabaka to get all these misguided criminals to be where they are today....bastards!!!

If the Tongan so-called President and wifey entertained thoughts that they were indispensable, they are bigger fools than we thought they were.

Repeat after me regime supporters -- no one is indispensable apart from Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum because he's got Bainimarama's scrotum in a death-lock.

Ah Well. Maybe the break from the White House will give him more time to concentrate on his first love/s -- gambling, carousing, golf and plain ol' simple "kana loto".

As for Qiliho and Tikoitoga -- no surprises there either. More's the pity for the women who have to put up with their shenanigans.

Uh-oh! Looks like the free ride has come to an end. Losers like this guy and Epeli Ganilau thought they could get back into power by using the rabid dog Vore, unfortunately it has ended up with them being bitten. No sympathy for these losers who've relied on their titles for positions their whole lives! Get a real job for once...oh wait, no qualifications to get one...well maybe back to the village time...unfortunately no Betting houses there!

if ratu elpeli nailatikau does nothing now, he will be responsible for his own demise and that of this country. whatever his indiscretions, he is the president and absolute ruler by decree. it is time he grew some balls and acted like a man and a leader or else he will be confined in the annals of fiji history as a person who was so inept that he let rabuka screw him in 1987 and bainimarama in 2011 (through aiyaz). so mr president get off your bicycle or chaor or whatever and do what is right to save this country.

Unfortunately or fortunately? Nailatikau still remains key in Viti's still uncertain future.

we will not let AG dictact to the commander in chief for the army and executive authority of fiji by giving him a date to exit!

Although he may be deem illegal president - but the world recognizes him as the only legal head of the country.

The US, Australia and NZ governments are just awaiting the president to ask their ambassadors for interventon and they will assist. All that the president has to do is pick up the phone and call the embassy.

We assure you that we will not stand and watch the president bbeing ousted from the office - there will be bloodshed! A stragery drwan up as the last resort puts the number of soliders who will loose their lives up to 300.

We are not joking and we will kill anyone who will try to take out the Commander in chief.

Yeah right!!Praise our soldiers in Sinai..my bum!!

These damn FMF soldiers serving there are wasting everyone's time because they are con artists who falsely portray an image of do-gooders but at home they are traitors,evil murderers and just plainly a waste of space.

Who cares about the damn Fijian soldiers in Sinai or wherever? The FMF is just totally rubbish and full of rascals.Who cares if they kill and rape each other in there??

This FMF is not a disciplined force but a crime syndicate controlled by the traitor Voreqe. Like it or not,he controls every coward serving under him and if they try and rise up,they get the shaft like lamusona Driti and Mara.

This army is stained with the blood and tortures of innocent civilians like Rabaka. Everyone in there are wearing the uniform of shame and its better that they all go and hang themselves....bastards!!!

Fiji army is a waste of space. Comprised of morons who can be manipulated to do anything as long as you pay them.Even participate in Voreqe's cultural genocide perpetrated against the Fijians. Also, Nailatikau fits into that category, of being a useless malleable character that has been a parasite on the people all his life.His lack of Fijianess obvious in his indifference to trashed Fijian values.
The Tunisians rose up and told the corrupt authoritarian leadership to run for their lives. The Fijian people are lamu to do the same. They basically are gutless when push comes to shove. As they are being trodden on in their ancestral homeland, they cowardly acquiesce. So much for the warrior. It was all a pretense.

No Balls said...

The Aus and NZ governments just don't give a damn what is going on in Baini's Banana republic. And their taxpayers and electorates would certainly not tolerate any intervention on behalf of a people that seems to love being kicked around.

mark manning said...

After all the illegal activities under Frank Bainimarama, i doubt there are any soldiers with enough intestinal fortitude to stand up to Frank and Co.
Welcome to chindia and I challenge you soldiers of the RFMF to arrest them and return Fiji to a Democratically elected Government immediately.
As for the current illegally appointed President being the only legal authority, that is false.
Mr. Qarase and the GCC are the only current legal authorities left in Fiji.

All you Fiji Army people commenting on this blog should shut up! Just eat your bread and butter, drink your tea and keep turning a blind eye to everything. Because you are good for nothing a***holes.
Why don't you guys do the right thing for once and arrest Bai, Aiyaz and Naivalurua or else all of you resign.
All the Ministers too should be ashamed of themselves. All a***holes too, for perpetrating this evil.

If anything the matter should come to a head by 28 Feb which is not necessarily a bad thing.

There will only be one survivor. If Nailatikau survives then Voreqe will have to go and vice versa.

My hope is for Nailatikau to prevail because that presents a better scenario for Fiji and its return to democratic government.

Fiji loyal said...

Hope we and Nailatikau are looking beyond our own glass bubble. That's the key to bringing this regime to its knees, man, and sending them to Naboro. And it's not about numbers either it's about will.

Mark, I think Jake spent far too much time playing with cassava sticks when he was young - so now he tries to express his own sexual frustrations on everyone else.

Amid all the insecurities and your idiocy, you do have a sense of humour.

It stands to reason why you are so bitter Bainimarama took away the one thing you’ve enjoyed the most playing hide the cassava root..

Political unrest of any kind in Fiji will almost immediatly kick between the legs the only industry that we have going for us and that is the Tourist trade. So picking up the sticks and stones need to be done with much regard for the impact it will have on what’s left of our economy. Having said that i think really the only people who may be able to find a solution to our problems is sadly the no school armed forces in this country. I am sure they are suffering financially just like all citizens of this country. They are just like all of us in that they buy food clothing etc etc and surely they must be seeing the difference in what a basket of groceries is costing now as apposed to 3-4 years ago. They can do this orderly and without bloodshed with the support of the so called president by asking the "PM" to step down peacefully for the good of this country or else..... and call for elections within a few months or weeks. Ultimately violence has to be avoided at all costs because no body wins when this happens and the resulting economic impact will perhaps cripple our country as we are at a very fragile state as it is. This is just my humble opinion.

Sadly, I think you are entirely correct - though I think that this is what may have to be a 'grassroots' revolution because it would have to involve the majority of the armed forces (who come from our own families). Noone wants violence to be that answer.

That is why we didn't support Speight, why we were so appalled by the CRW uprising and that was why the Police were investigating Frank for the way he dealt with them.
