Jumpy junta worried Fiji Methodists will cause 'disturbances'

Key Methodist Church leaders are being taken in and being spoken to by the military junta, worried they might be 'making trouble' at its conference at the end of this month.

NEUMI LEWENI: Warning Methodists.
Reverend Manasa Lasaro was interviewed at the Nasinu police station last evening by the director of operations for police. He wasn't held but he was grilled about the conference, its agenda and possible protests.

Lasaro says he stood his ground. "They know what the agenda is, that has been made known to them but they still wanted to make sure church members don't deviate. They said they have heard that there will be disturbances. I told them there have been no disturbances in any of the years the conference has been held."

About a thousand Methodist Church members are expected at the Suva conference in just over ten days. It will be the first time members will be able to hold a conference since 2007, when the military dictatorship banned the gatherings.

The junta is showing all the signs of being scared of its own shadow. 

It yesterday urged the Methodist Church to 'promote unity and equality' with military spokesperson Colonel Neumi Leweni telling Fiji Village 'the RFMF has been reliably informed that there are elements within the church that have been planning to utilize the upcoming church conference to instigate instability.'

He said "the law will take its course if a member or delegate of the Methodist Church of Fiji conference engages in any unlawful activities".

Leweni said the church Secretary has been told the meeting will be cancelled should members deviate from the original agenda. Methodist Church Assistant Secretary, Reverend Tevita Nawadra, was reported as saying no political issues will be discussed in the conference.

Typical nutty response from a military idiot..how can the meeting be cancelled when it's already in progress? So in other words, there will be a military presence at the meeting!! These military arseholes are simply that, they are bullies but they are all cowards. Come on Vuakamarama it's about time you start preparing fro your long holiday at Naboro.

The Methodist Church in Fiji already shows equality with its Indian brothers and sisters and show no discrimination in who is taken in to Dilkusha Orphanage.

How about you Mr Leweni show us that you really mean what you say and promote equality in the Fiji Army. How about 50% Indo-Fijians for a start.

Sega ni macala e kilai tu beka na i balebale ni vosa qo na "equality" se da vosa tu ga vakaveitalia.

PER or no PER a people revolution led by methodist church is mus for fiji freedom.

It is amazing how history repeats .. I was just watching the TV . . a documentary about the communist oppression of East Berlin for so many decades and the tactics of the dictatorial government and all the methods they use to force the people to accept whatever the government decreed.
-They used friends to spy on friends
- they would arrest you and charge you with some obscure nonsense crime
- they use torture and isolation in prison for people who would dare to criticise the crimes of government.
-they kept secret files of information about people who might just be a song writer, poet or church leader.
-they built a wall around the city to stop people from getting out. ... and all of this achieved what ? ? NOTHING!.
A famous person once said, "the only thing that man learns from history, is that he does NOT learn from history"
--------------------------------
About the only thing that is different about Fiji now is that the banana and arsehole are in it to try to cover their own crimes and fill their bank accounts with money they steal from the people, and whilst they have power, they can stay out of prison... but they will be very lucky to live (or they might say "unlucky") to live to stand trial for treason and all the crimes they have committed against the nation of Fiji.
... something has to happen, one way or the other, and I am sure there are still good people ready to stand up and fight for a FREE FIJI, it is bound to happen...
------------- banana, you and sayess are not worthy to govern a people deserving of their fREEDOM.
A benevolent true government has nothing to fear from its people.
But it is the duty of the people to overthrow a despotic evil government.And so you see this government is "afraid of its own shadow.

Mafi ....USA said...

A sa rere ko Pita....In this case the Illegal Regime are just afraid of themselves and assumed that other ppl are a threat...They are just afraid that their final days in power is drawing to a close...
To this liitle drummer band boy..he is afraid and as he has said that the church has to promote "unity"...You can't force anybody to say anything which they don't agree with.
The church has the right to discuss Political issues because it affects the very lives of their members in everyway. When the Church memebers are affected by the illegal regimes decrees and self serving laws that they have come up with, it also affects their spiritual lives.
For that matter, the Talatala's have the right to look into ways of addressing the polital upheaval which has affected members of the Methodist Church members. To address an issue, you have to look at the root causse.
The Illegal regime goons are just afraid and wants to dictate terms to all organisations. It happens to all the Provincial council and the worst of which we have witnessed during the Lau Provincial meeting. To Leweni, you are just so pathetic Bum-sucker...You bloody YES-man...
You will find yourself in Naboro with Vore and ASK...You bunch of Pigs....

Leweni: U shud have cut down on your presence and appearance in the medi if u know what is coming.

Aren't u ashamaed of yourself; the way u speak, your verbal expression sucks so is your body language looking sleepy to cover up your very slow mental and conceptual capacities.

There is not much to say for someone who has no academic qualification but a claa 8 level education with certificates of participation obtained while in the Military at for miltary parade, first aid, bugle playing, drum beating...oh! yes, sleepy looking media fronting.

What a load of crap...now you are the CED after being a PS, ruining the management, administration, policy compliance mechanism, accountability and tranparency structures of the Ministry of Lands.

LEWENI, YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WILLBE TARGETED AFTER ALL THESE BY THE METHODIST CHURCH MEMBERS AND OTHERS WHO DO NOT LIKE YOU AND YOUR ARROGANCE..

REMEMBER THAT

Methodist Church is pushing the old SDL agendas. We cannot go along that path. There are elements within the Methodist church with a political agenda. They just cant help themselves. And their supporters are ready to cause havoc and burn Suva down again. RFMF cannot take that risk and it must be eliminated.

Why feeling threatened of the methodist church and in the process victimizing them.It wont be the methodist church that they should feel insecure of , the threat is from an unexpected direction...so LOOK OUT OR LOOK AROUND , YOU ARE BARKING AT THE WRONG TREE...RERE TIKO VEI IKO..

c4.5, good comment from your FB


The constitution of the Methodist Church is quite clear that the Church, through the Dept of Social Services and Christian Citizenship of which Rev Lasaro is Secretary, is duty bound to make a public stand on social, economic and political issues where biblical principles and God's justice are being compromised. So it goes against the legal and moral duties of the Church to say that it cannot discuss political issues which affect our God-given rights and human dignity

New conditions to permit for Methodist Church Conference after military concerns.

Only 1,000 Methodist Church members allowed to attend annual conference

Only 1,000 Methodist Church members will be allowed to attend their annual conference.

Assistant General Secretary, Reverend Tevita Nawadra said this was one of the conditions in the permit given to them.

He added that under the Church Constitution, all the Talatalas, their Tuirara, stewards, and office bearers are to attend the meeting, however they have informed their members of the limit.

The Church Conference will be held from the 23rd until the 25th at Centenary Church in Suva.

The Methodist church has no heart for the people thus should not claim the mandate to represent them.

Since when has a reverend fed the common man? When will the church replicate the teachings in the bible? All they do high up there is try to justify that 'when one gives to the church, one gives to god'. Where exactly in the bible was this documented?

By politicising church ideology for material gain and power they represent all that is evil and rightfully should be censored and supervised.

@everybody

Im in Fiji. I know what is going here. We are having developments from this government like never before. I ask myself, why didnt the other governments do this fro us before. Why? I have visited rural places and am amazed by the government projects such as electrification, road upgrading, building of new schools and roads, laying of water pipes....etc. Now with all these good things going on, why should we spoil it?
Only you people overseas can answer that question for yourselves.....
