Top Methodist Church officials reappointed as regime tries to head off trouble

Key officials have been returned to the most senior positions in the Methodist Church, despite the conference at Centenary Church being cancelled by the illegal regime.

The Fiji Times is reporting the Church was last night allowed to induct current president Reverend Ame Tugaue and general secretary Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu for another three years.
It says 11 executives were inducted in the special service.

The Church's acting general secretary Reverend Tevita Banivanua is quoted as saying the church was thankful for permission to have last night's service. He said former church president, Reverend Josateki Koroi, was also personally approached but "said he was not ready to attend that meeting".

The assistant general secretary, Tevita Nawadra, is meanwhile quoted as saying the service was a welcome service for church members, who had arrived for the cancelled meeting. "We were just about to finish our meeting when we received the call that they had decided we could go on with our service."
 
The Church General Secretary Reverend Tuikilakila Waqairatu is, meanwhile, being quoted by FBC as saying they will hold a press conference tomorrow regarding the statements made by Mosese Tikoitoga today about why the conference was cancelled.

  1. God bless the Methodist Church of Fiji...the church that was already established and running before the colonial government of Fiji and the tiny Fiji Military Forces were formed. The church whose pioneer missionaries ministers and clerics including your ancestors and mine helped build this nation through toil and sweat, through hardwork and perseverence, through learning and education, through the translation of the English bible into Fijian and through the establishment of school curriculum and teachers training college. The church that has a very colourful history, present and future. People will come and go, governments will come and go, corporate bodies will rise and fall, Army Commanders will come and go but the Methodist Church is here to stay. Praise be to God. God bless Fiji.

  3. There’s one sure way to prevent unwanted pregnancy. There’s no reason everyone else should have to pay because Bhai's parents and Khai's parents couldn’t do what is right.

  9. Agree with Anon 4:06 PM...the church should not be thanking these idiots...just looks like tabetabe. I hope the press conference is not one of those flowery ones where they thank the illegal regime etc. Please remember these losers have no right to stop the methodist church from meeting so deserve no thanks whatsover.

  12. God bless the re-appointments....i.e true democracy...compared to the self appointed illegal goons n there self centreed illegal leader.
    And i totally agree with previous views..DO NOT THANK THE ILLEGAL GOONS IN YOUR PRESS CONFERENCE...they now know that there orders are only effective to them only and not to the majority.

    May the Lord be our shining light in our struggle to Spiritually oust these illegal goons n there Illegal PM.VB let me make it clear i don't n won't ever CONSIDER u as Prime Minister but i might consider u as a Poor Master (PM)...

    GOD BLESS FIJI AND THUMBS UP FOR DEMOCRACY......

  13. Methodist Church clergies, you should have just gone ahead and hold your meetings, Voreqe was not in Suva anyway, he & his family were away and knowing him, being a coward, he will hide and send others (Tikoitoga) to do the dirty job for him.

    There is nothing to fear, the soldiers will not shoot their own people, they are only doing what they are doing now because it is paying for their bread and butter. The Methodist Church is doing nothing illegal by having its services and meetings, IF GOD IS FOR US WHO CAN BE AGAINST US, isn't that what the Bible Says? So go ahead do things without fearing Baini & kaiyum, JUST FEAR GOD AND HE WILL DEFEND YOU, JUST WATCH THESE GOONS GOING INSANE AND DIGGING THEIR OWN GRAVES!!!

  16. i am sorry for the lower rank officers in the army who is trapped in between their work,their church,their chiefs,their vanua,their family,their freinds outside the camp,ect.

  17. If the boys from the camp joins the rebels as in libia,the people doing the orders can not do a single thing,because they do not know how to operate a gun.the only gun they will use is GUN-MARO.as that is what they do on a daily basis.

  18. To Anon 3:08pm:
    Why feel sorry for the lower ranks? It has been their call, it has been their choice and they are the very ones that have provided and are providing the Vore his power base. Not the officers, not the sergeants.
    If they really had the moral courage, and invoke the "valataka na dina" doctrine that they have been reminded of, time and time again, then and only then would I feel sorry for them.
    They had the choice. BUT, they took the wrong choice. In life, one has to make some hard decisions and consider the options. When considering the options, they must have done what all soldiers are taught - make an 'APPRECIATION".
    Either they did not or they chose not to.
    The proverbial milk has now been spilt. They will now have to start licking the milk that they spilt!!
    Like the spilt milk, the genie is now out of the bottle and furthermore, the gates are now open and the horses have now bolted. It is far too late now to start 'feeling sorry"!!!!
