Retired Methodist Church Minister stands his ground telling soldiers: "Shoot Me First"

EMPTY: Centenary Church was to have been busy today with the Methodist Conference.
  
REV KOROI
A former president of the Methodist Church last night refused to go to the Queen Elizabeth Barracks with military soldiers who turned up at his Suva house. 

After yesterday cancelling the Methodist Church conference, Frank Bainimarama's henchmen tried to take retired Methodist Church president, Reverend Josateki Koroi, to QEB.

Rev Koroi told Coupfourpointfive early this morning that he returned home at about 8 o'clock last night to find an army truck parked at his house, with two soldiers and a policeman inside the vehicle. He says one of the soldiers was a Lance Corporal but he couldn't make out the rank of the second one who remained in the dark and on the phone with someone from the barracks.

The former military chaplain says the policeman spoke to him first, telling him the Army Commander, Bainimarama, wanted to see him. He told him other senior ministers from the Church were already at QEB waiting for him and they "can't finish talks" until he joins them.

The retired minister says he refused to go telling them "It's late at night" and he had had a long day.

He says he told them the only way they were going to get him to camp was if they bundled up his feet and forced him physically or "shoot me and take my dead body".

Rev Koroi says the soldiers and the police kept pressuring him to accompany them, so he told them to call the Commander so he could speak to him but they refused.

The trio finally left when it was clear the Reverend was not going to listen to them.

Rev Koroi recently wrote a paper detailing why Christians should be involved in Politics in Fiji (Click to read) and suspects Bainimarama wanted to talk to him about it as well as the conference.

He says if he is visited again today by military soldiers and police he will repeat his message from last night: and that is that only way they will get him to the barracks is to shoot him and take his body.

It has also been reported that Rev Manasa Lasaro was taken to QEB. Rev Lasaro has confirmed to Coupfourpointfive that is not the case and that he hasn't heard of any other minister being hauled in either.

Editor's Note: FBC is reporting the regime is expected to release a statement this morning about the cancellation of the conference.

  6. What a great example is Rev Koroi and his fellow ministers, standing up and making an individual statement against this evil duo and their collaboraters.
    Verses the cowardice/cowering in fear women bashing banana and the chief lier/fraudster pooibum.
    They have already taken to arresting and imprisonment on made-up charges - (Narsey narrowly escaped) They have shown the world just how low they are prepared to go. The next step will be execution-they have already done this to their own military men.
    ----------------------------------
    THESE CRIMINALS MUST BE STOPPED
    ----------------------------------
    ..and they will be stopped in Gods perfect timing...the event may take longer than the people want, but God knows best and the method and timing will be perfect.+++
    banana and pooibum! you cannot escape, you cannot hide.
    God will bless Fiji.

  7. The upraising in the Arab World, perhaps the most important democratic movement against dictators in this century was triggered by a young Tunisian man who decided that enough is enough. Instead of being robed of his pride and dignity as a human being, he decided to burn himself to death. This single event triggered what we have been watching in awe over the last six months. People rising everywhere against tyrants and dictators, their fear pushed aside by a strong desire have their dignity and their human rights respected.

    Will Rev Koroi's courage and defiance be a trigger? I very sincerely hope so. A few leaders with guts and the Khaiyum nightmare that has befallen our country will end very soon.

  8. About time...Fiji needs brave men like the Rev...Too many chiefs hiding in fear and to think they believe they come from powerful tribes...what a laugh. When they had the military behind them in the 1987 and 2000 coup, Chiefs acted their part leading the people to a path of violence, suppresion and fear....without the Military, they have cowered in fear and people in turn have not stood up, because they have no one to lead them...All the Chiefs have gone and hidden and now it has taken a common person like the good Reverend to make a stand...A lot has happened since 1987 and the Chiefs should not be surprised if they lose their power eventually to people who are willing to stand up and fight for their rights...Ratu Ului should not be in Tonga hiding. The same with Baledrokadroka. They come from Chiefly families and have command over numerous tribes within their provinces. They are soldiers and leaders and know they should lead by example and fight from the front and their people will follow. They should return to Fiji and make the stand. Show the people they are prepared to suffer for the rights of the people. Lead marches, defy Military orders. Only than will people listen and take heed and have the courage to stand up and be heard. If they continue to bark from Australia and Tonga, their voice is like the wind and people are not really listening. Articulate words has no meaning unless it is practical. The Church is making a stand...Chiefs need to follow and lead by example and show their people their chiefly bloodline, banded from ancestors who fought, bled and died for their people and for honor. Enough talk now and get things moving Roko Ului and Baledrokadroka. Get into the action and lead your people. Go back to Fiji and fight in the ring, the very arena created by Frank and Kaiyum. The people are waiting and watching. The Methodist members are all Fijians and come from provinces you lead. Your people are waiting and watching. The momentum is there and the stage is now set. The same with the Democracy movement in Australia, NZ,USA or other countries. The momentum must be continued. Ului and Baledrokadroka should lead you back in Fiji to make a stand for the people. It will only bear meaning for the people waiting in vain in Fiji for action. You will be betrayed, you will be abused, you may be tortured, you may even be killed but your memory will linger because people today have suffered enough under the tyranny of Frank and Kaiyum. If no one takes the initiative now........

  9. We must follow the example of Rev Koroi, the Methodist church, Unions, censored Fiji Media, pro democracy movements in Fiji and worldwide in standing up strongly to these bullies. We MUST NOT let these bullies continue.

    We need to hold hands and stand united and organise marches in Fiji, Australia, NZ and world wide to end human rights violations in Fiji and to once and for all, bring down this regime.

    The quicker these marches are organised the better!!!
    Let Love, Peace and Prosperity reign in Fiji!

  14. Well there is a man who practices what he preaches. "If God is for us who can be against us". Fiji need more men like the Reverend Koroi who have no fear of evil and evil doers like these cowardly soldiers and policeman who go around doing the bidding of a depraved dictator.

  16. We thank Retired Fiji Military Officer, Major (Rev) Josateki Koroi’s words of wisdom, but have them come a bit too late for Fiji’s Christendom? We recall Bahamas’ Dr. Mike Munro reminded Fiji Christians in Suva last year of their “political responsibility” to a nation like ours.

    As Mr. Munro exclaimed, Christian are so more Heavenly minded!!...most preaching, teachings, hymns are about the hope of having a good time in far away Heaven. Unfortunately, neglecting our Christian responsibility in every sphere of life on earth!!... including the politics of choosing our leaders and politics in the holistic scene of the human family. The former Army padre must be highly commended.

    “Politiki” or politics in Fiji Christianity is worse than prostitution; a misdemeanor that warrants excommunication.

    Over the years many politically active Christians in Fiji have been taunted by other Christians as family with Satan or backsliders from the flock.

    Yours truly have been ravaged by such ridicule over 30 years ago, and worse for joining a Fijian Indian dominated NFP as a National Candidate. Was kicked out from my house and job with me Missus and then 3 weeks old baby, yep….my employer a Christian organisation with a Methodist Vice-President as Chairman of my Board treated me like dirt!.

    All forgiven though…but Phew!!....who is laughing now??

  18. can people try not to distract from the main argument here: ie bainimarama is trying to control the church just has he has media, and is trying to do with unions.

    people putting up BS arguments about church ministers riding big cars (who isn;t these days in fiji...an that was the regime's BS argument against the trade unions), and earning big money

    stop trying to blind people to what the issue is: this unelected govt trying to disetablish yet another facet of Fiji life he doesn't agree with and needs to control to stay in power.

    Rev Koroi is probably a liganiwau or a Sauturaga....as people who belong to this Mataqali's are supposed to defend and die for their chiefs. Its OK also for Roko Ului and baledrokadroka to be barking from Tonga and Australia.It would be foolish to do that in Fiji cause they will be silenced and put behind bars without you and me knowing the truth that is being cunningly concealed and suppressed from the majority of our citizens and the International community.I would like to believe that their stance is strategic to the final outcome and they are merely trying to outmanouvre Bainimarama and his cronies for our future wellbeing.
    Instead of generally criticising our chiefs you should ask the most rarely asked question in Fiji and that is, What are the descendants of the Sauturaga's and Liganiwau clan doing for their chiefs and the vanua????? or have they forgotten their role ?

  21. @.COM All of us are trying to do our part in this struggle. Let's not try to belittle everything and everyone - reality is we have work together and remember the common enemy. As has been said, when the time comes, those whose hands were soiled will have to answer to the people. Today's fight, though, is about Bainimarama going after the churches.

  27. @.COM 12:32 - It is not ok for Ului an Baedrokadroka to be barking from Aust. and Tonga. They have not made any impact and never will. They do not have the command and respect from the people of Fiji barking from where they are. They eat three good meals especially Roko Ului, they have a comfortable bed, they probably receive allowances and they feel safe and free where they are. If they are true freedom fighters, theys should be there in Fiji like Rev Josateki Koroi, who in his actions yesterday in defying the military has gained more respect from his stance than what Baledrokadroka, Ului and the Democracy Movement has done in the past five years. People need people like Rev Koroi, who is unfailing and selfless even in the face of fear for himself and his family. Freedom fighters spend years in jail, abuse, torture, deprivation and suppression and they eventually win and their battle is never fought from across the seas. They show their people they have the GUTS and COURAGE to face whatever is dissed at them and when they move overseas to take the fight, they are encouraged and supported. They do not flee and live in comfort and send flowery messages of support and encourage international support without first tasting the same fear, deprivation and suppression their own people have encountered. Chiefs, Sauturaga whatever your ancestors were back than, nobody gives two hoots today unless you can stand up and champion the fight of your people. Whatever you are, Chief, Sauturaga or the common villager, lead and you shall be followed. Reverend Koroi has now set the stage, it is up to people to take up the flag each time it falls and plant it on the hill of FREEDOM....Who is going to take up the real challenge and face the Setani they now depict Frank to be......Sa rauta na vosa..

    You sound like an hyperactive , naive, idotic, emotionally gay or an ant biting your backside. First, who are you and what bloodline do you come from? You surely don't sound like a chief, an educated Kaiviti or even a Christian. RUM and JB have done their part for Fiji and for democracy. What have you done for your country let alone for your village or for the fight against this illegal regime. Also, the chiefs including RUM and JB's families have played their part in building the Fiji that you and I love and cherish today. What have your descendant's done? Tell us your name and your achievements! Stick this in your thick head - the fight in Fiji today is not about race or the chiefs or the Methodist church. It's about a self centred, deranged psycomaniac idiotic person who thinks everyone else is below him and who doesn't care of the consequences of his actions. Since you talk like a low life commoner who can't put together a strategic plan why don't you go and lead the march in Suva so that your chief can pick on you as a true warrior rather than a liability of the vanua. God Bless Fiji!

  29. A very insightful, clear, concise and spiritually uplifting piece of commentary by the Rev. Josateki Koroi, Amen.
    It reminds one and all their duty to defend the faith and lead their folks in the fight for Christ, freedom and the truth!!
    - " Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war, with the Cross of Jesus going on before,
    Christ the royal Master leads against the foe, Foward into battle see His banners go!
    Like a mighty army moves the church of god.....
    We are not divided,all one body we,One in hope and doctrine, one in charity;
    Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane, But the church of Jesus constant will remain;
    Onward then ye people, join our happy throng, Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song. Glory, laud and honour unto Christ the King, This through countless ages men and angels sing!"
    Hope all the brothers and sisters of every faith & persuasions[... with their own versions of similar uplifting heavenly compositions ] wish the people of Fiji a quick and happy conclusion to this unfortunate and dark chapter in their history.

  32. @ Anon 1.53pm - YES I agree with you that Rk Ului's father has done his part for Fiji but don't forget his family have also been well compensated by the taxpayers of Fiji in their upkeeping. They have had access to most assets & priviledges that any other Fijian does not have access to because of their father. Their family had access to the resources and assets of the whole country for a very long time and they have thorougly enjoyed the position & it's entitlement, good for them. So they have been well compensated and some may say they deserve it while others think otherwise & I have no problem with that because that is history for now.

    But what I cannot comprehend is for the Mara siblings to think or believe that Fiji was made for them and Fiji owes them. THAT IS WRONG AND IS UNJUSTIFIED!!! They have to wake up to the reality, time has changed - even in Lau they do not have 100% support, that is the reality. They have to sweat for their living, this is not a Kingdom (like Tonga) where they are entitled to everything they want.

    They must first admit they are part of the current mess in Fiji, they supported Voreqe from day 1 - & they were the ones who put Voreqe in the commander's job, that is a fact, endorsed by Ratu mara, so can they undo the damage they have done now? I doubt they have the know how of what to do?

    As far as I am concerned Rk Ului & baledrokadroka can be chiefs from where they come from but that does not make them 'GOOD LEADERS' that Fiji needs!!! Chiefs have their place in the Fijian setting but times have changed and they must have something else added onto their chiefly title to be counted, otherwise they are irrelevant in the political arena.

    We Fijians must be delivered from the mindset that chiefs are meant to lead in politics - where does that mandate come from? Politics & government must be lead by honest, qualified, respected and dignified individuals who have the vision to move Fiji forward without any personal agenda. A person who is well balanced & versed with Fiji and its issues and has the moral courage to lead justly.

    GOD BLESS FIJI!

  36. So one of my forefathers clan has now been challenged! God Bless You!This was the same Rev Josateki Koroi whom the Methodist Church got rid of when he stood up to all those Church Leaders who supported Rabuka's coup!And when they didn't like his stance some in the Church went and orgainised to have something so evil be done to a member of his Family-but the Lord protected him & his clan. Cause those who arrived to carry out the act soon found out that they were at Rev Koroi's place in Navua and all took off! Now compare this stance with Baledrokadroka , Roko Ului and others who have all taken off overseas and firing from there! The Rev is known to speak with honesty & pracises what he preaches,he lives and works on his farm in Navua but still gives out free advise for those that want to listen! Pity the Methodist Church didn't listen to him the first time we had a coup! So far the Kai Lau from Vanua Balavu is showing all those who are sitting overseas how its done-but are we surprised with Rev Koroi -NOT ME! More guts than all the Military personnle all put together and i can truely say that those that want to lay a hand on this only annointed Reverand left amongst our the people of Fiji, who is never been tainted with anything bad or evil, need to do so with a lot of guts-his Sau is not from the man by from the Almightly One! I would guess the soldiers would be scared shit to even to touch him and speak to him with more respect than they would their own Offices.When you want to pick a fight pick it with someone your size the Rev Koroi is in a totally different catergory! Fight him and you fighting for your LIFE!

  38. Rev. Koroi, we salute you! You are the Gandhi Fiji desperately needs, -a bridge-maker,a peaceful and courageous man of reason and a man of GOD.

    You are not only enlightened yourself but you enlighten others. You show us the way! You are a leader!

    Please pray you enlighten the likes of Aiyaz and Baini to realize that they probably would go in history as the most 'hated' of all leaders of Fiji - ever!

    More than Koya, Rabuka, Speight, Choudhary, and Qarase combined.

    Please we pray that with this realization both Aiyaz and Baini would do the dignified resignations and peacefully exit from our lives for ever. People of Fiji are also blessed (hopefully we pray) with the powers to forgive and forget you.

    Please pray for our beloved country and save it from becoming the likes of Libya and other northern African States.

    Rev. Koroi Please lead us back to our paradise lost!

  42. It damn too late for a bulubulu now-what Rev Koroi said will happen - started very soon after he left the Church, when they booted him out that is!One very Senior Church Minister who was the one behind and also in front of everything that happened to Rev Koroi even lost a son in such tregady that he still could not see the the type of Mana Rev Koroi had. During the funeral service in Navuso he still had the courage to say that his son's death should not be attributed to his doings!Did we accuuse you Talatala? Guilty?? Whats happening to Methodist Church now? Exactly what the Lord Jehova promised -when the evil doers harm a single hair of his annointed person-Rev Koroi is one of the very few left-you bear the brunt of things to come-which could last several GENERATIONS!! I recall the challenge 'if you are Chosen prove that you are by your deeds and show them the Lords Mana by praying so the sick are healed & they get up and carry their bed"! How many who are called to do the Lords work can say and do that in Fiji today? Our hospitals are over burdened-where are our talatalas to heal the people, the land?? All busy organising their source of income-whilst Rev Koroi is sweating on his farm in Navua! If any doublts the ability of this Man of God all you have to do is go to his stall and see what he sells, 99% of the time there is no one there- his voli or his veges etc are just left on the stall with price tags -No one there to sell the goods. There are price tags for each item on the stall- people just come and pay for it, get their changed and move on and leave-if there is not enough change they just leave the extra funds.Till today no has dared NOT to Pay for the correct price or even dared steal from that stall! There is even talk of people who have taken more than they paid for only to find out later whose stall it is-than return with either the correct amount of money or return the veges! Now thats the kind of the Mana this annointed person has BUT if someone thinks this began with Rev Koroi no it didn't it was something in his CLAN for generations-they were already gifted before the Church even arrived on Fijis shores. Many stories to tell of Rev Koroi and his fore fathters which can fill volumes! As a famous legend of our stories tells that even evil was met head on hence the saying " Au sureta a meca...", "I even invite evil if he dare come to my doorstep" We are the people of the "morning mist"!

Let us first take out the speck from our own eyes and STOP TRYING TO PLAY GOD, did God tell you the reason why Rev Lasaro lost his son? Who are you to pass judgement? That is an issue between Rev Lasaro & God NOT you, not me or anyone else for that matter.
    The problem with most of us we are always busy trying to pick on divisive issues. Right now the fight is not between Rev Koroi & the Methodist Church, that is history. The issue right now is for all of us to learn very quickly to UNITE AGAINST THE ENEMY OF OUR FREEDOM AND THAT IS VOREQE BAINIMARAMA!!! So focus on that!!! Enough being petty about the past, let those that are involved sort out their past, the focus right now is UNITING as a nation to bring down Voreqe who has brought missery to the nation of Fiji.

  46. Varani i don't understand what Title you allude to "Kapaiwai" with reference to Roko Ului-if you referring to the Tui Nayau Title Ratu Finau is one of the Chief Senior contenders, Roko Ului is not the Chief contender infact he is the most Junior contender, if the the Eleders decided to include the Sisters he goes futher down the line? Besides that there also contenders from Vatuwaqa! After all this reminds one of the challenge with regards to the Tui Cakau Title-the Elders of this clan are the Lewenilovo who should be holding the Title!

  47. Some titles are bestowed - others are taken & earned - which in this case applies to both...

  48. Ano 9:24 i am from na kawa ni BETE! So things that we my know you don't - as i mentioned no names why did you assume it was Rev Lasaro?? Our blessing were given before the White man brought his Lotu which now is the cause of woo in the Land because people don't know the difference between the seperating their Christian Beliefs from their Traditional beliefs. Maybe you should read what the Methodist Leaders are now saying-to reconcile-By God its has taken over 20+ years for the Methodist Leaders to have the guts to speak up about a wrong they did! Rev Koroi is part of our clan-so what the Methodist Church did to him it does to all of us his blood! Its not between the Methodist Leaders and him alone-sorry to disappoint you!Not that he needs our support-they can't even handle him! As for talking to God -our Forefathers did that day in day out-that my suprise you -you may think the churches are the only ones that can do that-just think again. As for uniting -against whom-Bainimarama!Bainimarama is the product of the Methodist support for COUPS or haven't you figured that one out!This is exactly what Rev Koroi spoke about when he was dumped! The day for the Methodist Church to pay its debts to one Rev Koroi has not even started-its only just begun! Fire is still to come-believe me-our Droi hasn't even sung its songs for the Drodroilagi to awaken. Kawa i tamata, Kawa i mata,Vuravura, noqu samasama, noqu tamata, Tabu tabu sara, Noqu vosa,Ra buka waqa,.....
