Fiji rugby goes to the dogs

FIJI RUGBY SAVIOURS: Bainimarama and QEB Goon Ben Naliva.


The illegal regime has officially got its ugly hooks into Fiji rugby with the election today of Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga and Colonel Joeli Cawaki to the Fiji Rugby Union.
Cawaki and Tikoitoga were elected along with the cabinet minister Ilaitia Tuisesi and Rupeni Nacewa, a former private secretary to president Josefa Iloilo who is the new chairman. The president is the MP, Isakeli Tasere.
Also elected today were lawyer Joeli Baledrokadroka as legal director, accountant Napolioni Batimala financial director and businessman Cama Maimuria as a member of the board of trustees.

The illegal regime has been angling for control of the FRU since last year when it demanded the resignation of the union's board and executive members over alleged mismanagement of a Rugby World Cup fundraising lottery.

An investigation by the Fiji Commerce Commission conveniently claimed to have found discrepancies between ticket sales and receipts and alleged some lottery funds had been used to fund overseas trips by directors.

All board members offered to resign but the International Rugby Board insisted the election of new board members could only take place at the annual general meeting.

The IRB warned any violation of the union's constitution could result in Fiji losing its status as a member in good standing, effectively barring Fiji from international rugby.

But the international body has since taken a carefully conciliatory line with Fiji's military regime.  

Its chief executive Mike Miller said during a recent visit to New Zealand that he hoped it  would relax the travel sanctions against regime members, including Bainimarama, to attend the World Cup matches in September. 

Six of the new board members were elected today at the meeting in Sigatoka by delegates from Fiji's provincial rugby union and three by trustees. (Original source AP and FBC)

Fiji Football has been in need for a massive clean-up for decades !!!

Semi Meo said...

Very competent and worthy Board to take us to the next world cup and beyond…

...or do you want a Patel and a Kumar to take the helm of leadership?? Fijian Holdings is managed by others, we only have Rugby and NTLB left..oh no..let’s say, have a Pilay Head FRU and a Ramsami CEO of NLTB…oh..and do not forget a Solanki to manage FAB.

When will we Taukei trust our own??..NEVER?????

Semi Meow you idiot. Geez man, I know you are thick but not to this extent. Having military people there will mean they are not allowed to travel to NZ with the team. And now it makes it more pressing for NZ to check who's in the team. Man just shut the hell up you pussy.

Given the never ending FSC fiasco -now both suspicious and teriffied of this combination - regime & boards.

@Semi. People are complaining about the "process" of unprofessional take over of the FRU Board and intimidation by the Army etc etc.
We are not talking about "race"
You are a thoroughly confused person.
You must be a racist person if you don't think an Indian can be good enough to run FRU.
What the hell is wrong with you?
By the way as for the Indians running FHL, your cousin-brother Bai put them there.
You should think before you put pen to paper.

Money talks, only reason board has been changed is because they need the $2 million to help get the team to the World Cup. It's typical of the Illegal Government to stoop to such low levels.

semi meo is a racist pig malo

military trash said...

The FRU will now go the way of the sugar industry and everything else the useless Fiji military get their hands on - downwards spiral!
These scumbags can go north to play rugby. The military trash and their families are NOT coming to NZ for the RWC - they are not welcome.

I've just realised why Frank is giggling uncontrollably in this photo !
Ben is tickling Frank's fancy with his M16 !!

miau semi said...

Miau u racist pig.Probably an Indian FRU CEO might have the qualification to run place.Not those dumbhead pricks who think they know all.Not to bad for two opportunist who were sent to Australia to do the Junior Officers training a few years back.Cawaki u have been rewarded for carrying Frank's "BALLS". For Tikoitoga your name should be removed from the Kadavu volanikawa bula.

Its True Militarization of all institutions in Fiji!

They thought, being a military person will make wonders in any institution....hahahaha...no mate, you gotta give give it to the civillians......now the FRU will be free from public criticisms...we wil not have the freedom to express our dissatisfaction over their decision making.....it is going to be---what we say, we stays-current military government tactic..

Mo Tikoitoga, ke sa sega ni liutaki vinaka na i mati ni vuvale, ena kakarusarusa ga na veivanua o na veiqaravi tiko kina...qarauna de na baci luvea tale e dua na yalewa mai na FRU.

Suddenly..suddenly, yours truly is branded a racist by some faceless and nameless racists wallowing in thier karma from the darkside..man, ..I am so sorry for being ambiguous to simple and senile brain who may not have kapish the holist context of my previous post..eh..do not blame me if they just blooming forget to take their psycho redeeming pill..some people..goodness, what a life they lead..next they may wear the right shoe in left leg or shirt as pants!!!!

cry as much as you want but the fact was these people were nominated by and elected into the Board by the rugby union delegates in accordance with the FRU constitution. At least now they respecting the democratic process within the FRU.
Hope they do the same in 2014. We also see here the mentality and culture amongst Fijians – anyone in power are gradually accepted even if they came in by the gun! The process pf democracy still has some way to get into the Fijian pssyche.
But the economic collapse might galvanise them into action. But again this is questionable as they are very tolerant and adaptable to hardships eg daily water problems, no sugar etc coupled by the culture of forgiveness and community.
But of course dont let in any military goons in NZ or Aust n tougher action by NATO, ANZUS is needed against the regime because nothing will happen from within Fiji unless the military revolts which is unlikely as all dissidents (Roko Lui etc etc ) have been successfully purged by Bainivuaka.

FRU BOARD CHANGED.
WHICH RUGBY PROV THIS NEW BOARD MEMBERS SERVED.MOSES/CAWAKI.

GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR VISA TO NZ.
SORRY NO MILITARY GUYS WILL GET VISA.
WHEN THE GOVT WILL CHANGE THE FIJI FOOTBALL BOARD.
AG CAN LEAD THE FFA /BAI.

There's more merit to the new FRU executive than most people realise.

The appointment includes a couple of accountants and a lawyer. If you can't have an IndoFijian you might as well have a few people who understand finance and legal issues.

As to appointing a couple of army people, if you have other people with brains they can be carried - isn't that the way the whole country works now?

Besides, FRU will save on airfares to NZ for the Exec if they have two military members. They won't be travelling to NZ!

And let's not forget no Frank turning up in NZ means no need for FRU to extend normal Fijian hospitality to this freeloading bastard.

So there are a few pluses!

Before anybody starts accusing Semi Meo of "racism" suggest they have a good hard look at the criteria for the recent "ms India" contest? (not talking gender eitheir).

Semi Meo is the perfect example of an abused kid that has turned into a short tempered bully and is still wallowing in his defeat..haa..haa..how we laugh at your comments cause you are the faceless goof that wants to be recognized and you are an upportunist that would jump at any golden opportunity that comes your way..no wonder you are there living in a foriegn country..always in search of greener pastures..but maybe its not all that green that you always commenting on this blog saying how good things are turning out here so Voreqeq can take notice and invite you over for an appointment..haahaa..You may disagree but that my dear is the impression we are getting when reading your comments..

@Anonymous May 4,2011 5:48am..Madam, I have 14 siblings from the same parents..none of us tasted the abuse you faced and now mirror to us..look at Fiji's history..and..yes...shut up!!..and pull up your pants!!.

What is wrong with being looking for opportunities in life..you are probably one of those who believe in the myth that opportunity will knock on your door!!...goodness, there are other doors in the corridor of your world then yours..

You seek; you find..you wait for the knock..eh...moce Joe!!

Just returned from grandparents day from my 10yrs old grandson's school..In retrospect, am glad a prepared this opportunity for my children and g/children to eat grass in this green pasture and return to service Fiji one day.

For the millionth time, I do not belong to the Bainimara/Aiyuz ,though I support the road map back to democrati rule..

..whay do I have to waste my time of these faceless freaks!

@ Semi Meo..I dont look for opportunities..it really does come knocking on my dear..for your information..I am my own boss and I love it here in fiji but I dont and nor do I condone military dictatorships..I dont have to go overseas to eat greener pastures cause I have it right here in my own backyard..and I wouldn't want my kids living in a foreign land where they will always be branded immigrants and Land Grabbers..Thank you very much..

@ Semi Meo..Didn't your parents learn about family planning..14 siblings..and the fact that you mentioned that all were from the same parents had just given you away..You must have been born out of wedlock..or in fijian we say..o iko na luveni sala..Kaisi Bokola..rauti iko ya.
