Samoa's PM replies to claims he's implicated himself in a coup by Roko Ului and Baledrokadroka

CANBERRA TALKS: The PM of Samoa with Baledrokadroka and Roko Ului recently at the Hyatt Hotel.

The straight talking Prime Minister of Samoa, Tuilaepa Sailele Malielelagaoi, has nailed it again. In replying to a claim he's become caught up in a coup plot by the two former military officers Roko Ului Mara and Jone Baledrokadroka, Tuilaepa has managed to bring levity yet again to an otherwise bombshell issue. Coupfourpointfive approached the PM with a series of questions and received the following statement from him.


I’ve been asked to comment on a Michael Field article suggesting that I have ‘unwittingly’ implicated myself in a supposed coup being planned by Ratu Tevita Mara and Jone Baledrokadroka.

I have not read the said article but I’ve been briefed of its contents. First, I am very glad to see that Mike is still the cantankerous journalist that has endeared him to many Pacific Island governments.

Second, I do not know anything about coups. We don’t have coups in Samoa, unless, it’s a chicken coop.

My support for Mara is solely on his and others’ efforts in returning Fiji to democratic government and free elections. If that is the aim of the democracy campaign in Fiji and elsewhere, then I support it too.

Any measure to support the military regime in Suva is denying the people of Fiji democratic right and I will not be a party to it. Bainimarama’s promise of holding elections in 2014 is not taken seriously by Forum leaders. 

That is because he has been consistently dishonest with his dealings with the leaders and, thus, cannot be trusted.

His latest election promise also, is not consistent with his actions as he continues to fill up the top public service ranks with his cronies in the military and elsewhere. When Mara might wish to visit Samoa is solely up to him. We are not in the business of barring anyone from visiting our shores. 

We have also received official delegations from Fiji in recent months for regional meetings. May I also take this opportunity to renew my invitation to my friend Bainimarama to come to Samoa. Even better, if his visit coincides with that of Mara in Apia, then the three of us can enjoy cold Vailimas under the swaying coconut trees. Perhaps that’s what the situation in Fiji requires, a cold Vailima solution.

All this climate change is making many people in the Pacific warm in the head.

I would also like to take this opportunity to comment on a recent article by a certain Graham Davis that my statements on Fiji is creating a rift between Polynesians and Melanesians. I’ve also been briefed of the article’s contents. People – especially academics – read too much into this so-called Polynesian versus Melanesian thinking. Let me put it in a simple context we can all understand.

A toad and a frog were arguing on the doorstep. One argues he is much more handsome than the other. Along comes a pretty girl, looks at the pair, screams ‘AUOI!’, stomps on both of them and runs away. Moral of the story? We live in the same pond and nobody really cares about our differences.

Good day.
Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi

People lined up for hours before they cast their votes. Indians, Fijians, Others etc.
Out of respect for the law and out of respect for their fellow men they cast the only single vote they were allowed.
Then came a bunch of thieves that know nothing about RESPECT and HARD WORK and stole the government from the people.

These Disrespectful bunch of thieves now walk around in town as if they are in the right and we are in the wrong.

They get on the blogs and tell us that they are right and we are wrong.

You are nothing but a bunch of lowlife thieves!
You have no shame!
You are a shame to the Fijian race and you shouldn't call yourselves Christians.
You are so far from it you should call yourselves satanists.

The Army is this bunch of thieves and they must give back what they have stolen.

We dont want Ex military, Adulterers, Fijian chiefs on Tongan passports in Fiji or to say they have Fiji at heart. Go to Samoa and Tonga.

Just like Mr. Tuilaepa - if we are all serious about standing up for our rights, our country and democracy, let's all make ourselves known and be recognised for the stand we take. If you pro-democracy and a contributor to this site, make yourself known as 'part-takers' in a coup just like Mr Tuilaepa. I for one would put my name forward. If I get picked up arrested, beaten or murdered - the whole world will know - it was because I stood up and made myself known.

I have said all along, Samoa has had Fiji's best interest at heart all along the meandering pathway of this Baineee/Taliban saga. Fiji's best friend is Samoa by a long shot. Talofalau lava!!

@Anon 7.00 - the whole damn country is a sacrificial lamb. What can they do when the whole country stands up? Bring in their tanks and heavy weaponry? I doubt it. If people are serious about regaining their identity as a voter - then stand now. Make yourselves known. Stop hiding behind anonymity.
Interim government: Come and get me - I'm waiting!

Samantha Sue, Delailabasa, Labasa said...

Call it what you like, but one thing's for certain - I'm not scared of anyone. Not even Bainimarama or his military. The truth be known, my taxes pay their salary, so I have a say in how my money is spent. I am ready to die for my country and democracy. Are you?

@ Lets Get This Straight. You Do Have a Point There.

Fijians form a link between Melanesia and Polynesia, and Fijian is an ancient Austronesian language that is related to its more modern "cousins" such as Tongan and Samoan.

"indigenous Fijians with their Polynesian admixture"

Fiji is located almost 2,500 miles to the west-southwest of Hawai'i on the border of the Polynesian Triangle:

Very sad people have to comment anonymously because of this hideous illegal regime does let the Fijian people speak freely. Little old ladies are dragged down to Police Station if some one accuses them of cursing at the Puppet and the Muppet. Bow you head in SHAME the trolls that do the Puppets dirty work. You are Toads that deserved to be Stomped on again and again.

Tuilaepa, you are the type of Pacific leader we want. Courageous, doing the right thing whether it goes down well with the sheepish Melanesian leaders or not.

We salute you and Tongan PM.

We will not forget you in Fiji for your support for democracy in Fiji.

SEMI MEO said...

Again we proclaim that beloved Fiji can never…NEVER be redeemed ,resurrected and rebuilt from this down ward spiral to economic, social and destruction by faceless and nameless Christian and self proclaimed patriots…NEVER!!

Those who choose to remain anonymous in this generation of our history may just be on the same level of deceit and grand cowardice as the Co Prime Ministers.

A brave pro-democracy advocate died recently fighting the fight on his way to attend a prodemocracy meeting, we are told….have not met the man but history will remember his name as one of those who paid the ultimate price.

His family will be proud of him, though others may taunt his contribution as insignificant…at least his two cents contribution in various blogs have a human face.

Fiji…it is time to unmask..Gullible, to some….but patriotically Fijian and basic human courtesy to introduce oneself before whatever the mouth speaks is quantified credible at all!!

..otherwise..just dried up “deni maina” on a window seal…

The Samoan PM is really giving a good account of himself and his people by his representations. This in stark contrast to Dictator Vore and Aiyarse who represent nobody but themselves but are doing a great disservice to the people of the nation by dragging Fiji into the mud. Thumbs up to the Samoan and Tongan governments for their support in bringing about democracy to Fiji and its people.

@Semi Meo
Lots of people contribute in life anonymously.
Whether they give money or volunteer their time etc etc etc.
Not everyone wants to be popular like you.
So if people want to contribute anonymously that's their choice.
For people who want their name recognized that's their choice.
That is what Democracy is all about.

So, don't denigrate people because they want to remain anonymous.

There are lots of people, intelligent people who contribute a lot of inside-information anonymously on this blog-site. They have revealed more to us than you have.
Even RUM does not want to reveal names of people who gave him inside information because they are still in Fiji.

So, remember in life, not everyone is like you.

I want to remain anonymous so the "green goons" don't take me to QEB for the "gun up the bum" treatment like they accorded Mr Sam Speight! It's no use taking them on in a gun fight or even passive resistance could prove fatal and people residing overseas should be mindful of this when making calls for action against the military oppressors this way. The only way the illegal junta can be overcome is by using weapons they do not possess; A brain. Pressure to conform not reform. Real moves towards a return to democracy.Increased pressure from democratic governments. Like the prime minister of Samoa who is not interested in becoming embroiled in a battle with the illegal regime but is more about seeing the people running the country, not the military! The way Fiji should be!

But if you are a product of a one night fling of a drunken sailor and a flirting waitress to be sooo embarrassed to disclose your name and ID..then we pitty you…I would still be proud and post my name if I were a product of such an onenight passion.
