What will today bring for Fiji?

MOPPING UP: Soldiers yesterday tried to remove evidence people are publicly moving against Bainimarama.



BILLBOARD ATTACKS: First time.

Today could turn out to be another significant development in the move towards reclaiming democracy for Fiji.

Sources say efforts will be made for the Methodist Church Conference to go ahead at Centenary Church, despite the unelected government of Frank Bainimarama shutting it down.

Information provided to Coupfourpointfive shows the continued resolve of some Church leaders and their supporters to stand up to the self-appointed prime minister.

A new group calling itself VRF (Viti Revolution Forces) yesterday claimed responsibility for the attacks on the roadside billboards of Bainimarama, and showed its resolve to remove him saying "enough is enough."

The illegal regime is this morning still trying to  justify its decision to cancel the Suva conference. Mosese Tikoitonga has also been at pains to "assure" media the "country is safe."

PUBLIC DISSENT: Out for all to see.
Trying to dismiss the Church stand-off, he told media: “This is an internal issue, security issue for the Military Council, leadership issue for the government and a transparency and accountability issue for the general population of Fiji."

He added: “What we are doing here is looking after the welfare of the Fijian population." 

He claimed the regime's actions were not aimed at attracting international sympathy, saying "we are doing it merely because the government thinks the right thing needs to be done for the population of Fiji."

In a statment on the MINFO website, Tikoitoga also tried to dismiss blog reports soldiers had tried to force the 80 year old Reverend Josateki Koroi to go to the QEB barracks on Monday night:

No one was ever taken by force
All Methodist Church members who were at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua on Monday evening went on their own free will and were not forced as reported by the overseas media, says the Land Force Commander, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga.

“We (the military and the church) have been having continuous meetings at the military camp because we do not have to pay for the use of the facility,” he said.

“There has been a lot of give and takes in our meetings up there to clarify and discuss the agendas and consultations on issues by both parties.”

Col Tikoitoga added that Monday (August 22) was the last meeting and vehicles were provided to help Methodist ministers get to the venue on time.

“That is the reason a vehicle with officers from Nabua was sent to pick up Reverend Josateki Koroi who lives in Navua and also to seek a wider range of opinions from non-serving ministers,” Col Tikoitoga said.

“The soldiers picked up a police officer from Navua to accompany them to Rev Koroi’s residence, He was asked politely to be part of the meeting, which he hesitated. They asked again and he declined so the officers returned

“At no point, did soldiers force the Methodist Church hierarchy into the car to be taken to camp.”

The Land Force Commander also refuted overseas media reports that the military personnel had seized ministers, adding that no church minister was detained because all had left after the meeting.



Ministry of Information permanent secretary Ms Sharon Smith – Johns questioned the integrity of overseas media reports saying the issues should have either been verified with a government representative or the military.

“The part that hits Fiji most is that there is no verification of the subject. I am always available by phone even odd hours and anybody can just call and verify,” she said.


Tikoitoga is also claiming there is division in the church despite the assistant general  secretary Tevita Nawadra describing them as differences in views, not a split.

Editor's Note: Sources have also told Coupfourpointfive the international labour movement will rally for Fiji. Protests have been announced for next Thursday (September the 2nd) outside Fiji's High Commission in Wellington, the Fiji  Consulate in Sydney and the Fiji High Commission in Canberra. Protests have also been scheduled for outside the Fiji Embassy in Brussels next Thursday, September 1.

We Fijians overseas are not that stupid, thank you. We get our news from the ground in Fiji!..not the overseas media.

In fact, this morning a major TV station in Aust is under investigation for purporting to be broadcasting in a chopper above an alleged murder scene, when Air control places the chopper miles away!!..these overseas media do not care..file videos of Coup 2000 are still used to intro a news story from Fiji..that's 11 years old!!

Oh…and the news from our people on the ground are wide spread poverty, helplessness, joblessness, yet some elite prosper..even senior Pentecostal Pastors we speak to are very depressed..reality may be that it is even hard to concentrate in prayer…that in not good at all!!

..and these Unions overseas are as worse as the overseas media…occasional shouts in the last five years to justify their existence…no action..too much talk!!

there they go again trying to prove their good intentions. i just don't believe them. never did never will

Fijian British have to pay alligance to the Queen -Rajesh, thay not stupid like Ligairi who was dopy enought to get involved with Rabuka in forming the CRW.My sources from Fiji tell me that Rev Koroi was asked with a great deal of respect accorded to him, if he would attend a meeting at Nabua as Frank wanted him there. He was not forced as it appears to be reported. We all know that till today the Church as not asked forgiveness from Rev Koroi for his getting unceremoniously dumped during the Rabuka coup and on top of that there are still some Church Ministers still around who were involved in his dumping!Any wonder why the Church is still in a absolute mess!

Mosese Tikoitoga has obviously spoken without thinking or just outright lying.
He says " We are looking after the welfare of the Fijian population"

Excuse me Mr Tikoitoga, Did you ask the Fijian population about what they want or you just talking nonsense.

From what I gather Half of the Fijian population want to have their Methodist Conference.
The other half want you to go and do what you were trained to do - "Peacekeeping in the Middle East". Don't come and mess with our lives.

I hope you are not using this kind of logic with Fiji Rugby because if you lie to your players and lie to the country ,like you are lying to us now, then your team will loose in the pool games. Game Over!

.... Sharon, the misfit of missinformation ... you are a disgrace. We Ausies disstance ourselves from you.
Are you so blinded by all the money that is paid to you by banana
that you don't understand why no one would expect the truth from you. You are not "working" for banana, you are actually subserviant to him and his dopey criminal mind ... so why would anyone want to verify anything with you, unless just to see what the latest stupidity might be.
Even if you tell the truth about a situation, that situation has been brought about by the goons/decrees of this treasonist junta. So you are implicated by the fact that you have accepted huge amounts of money from the proceeds of those crimes, so you will go down with them.

So they admit that they have been interfering with the Methodist Church which should be given their freedom as the members want no to the whim of the Army of its self appointed Govt.

How evil is this government to stop Christ's church today from getting together to praise the Redeemer, meet and pray?
When will they know that the truth shall prevail and redemption come to those that persevere and fight the Devil and his evil army?
-"Onward Christian soldiers marching as to war, With the Cross of Jesus, going on before.
Christ, the Royal Master, leading against the foe;
Foward into battle see his banners go!....
At the sound of triumph Satan's host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers, on to victory!
Hell's foundations quiver at the sound of praise;
Brothers lift your voices, loud your anthems raise.
Like a mighty army moves the Church of God;
Brothers we are treading where the saints have trod...."
So I say hold the faith and keep true to your teachings for I do believe the day is nigh when we will overcome the Devil!

Tikoitoga is hilarious when he tries to say that the methodist Church ministers should step down because they're being charged on trumped up PER that you put in place in the first place! What rubbish! what about Kean...did he step down? No full pay even when in prison then reinstated as if nothing happened...what a bloody joke!

This has to be one of the most laughable lines we've heard yet from Miss Information: Quote:
"Ministry of Information permanent secretary Ms Sharon Smith – Johns questioned the integrity of overseas media reports saying the issues should have either been verified with a government representative or the military.
“The part that hits Fiji most is that there is no verification of the subject. I am always available by phone even odd hours and anybody can just call and verify,” she said.
ACTUALLY, THE PART 'THAT HITS FIJI MOST' IS THAT THE OVERSEAS MEDIA KNOWS THE SORT OF TRIPE SHE SERVES UP TO THE LOCAL MEDIA SO IT WON'T BE ASKING HER ANYTHING EXCEPT, IN DUE COURSE, WHETHER SHE PLEADS GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY. By the way, if she says "Good morning" to you, you'd better get a second opinion. .0035

Tikoitoga, Leweni, FB, ASK and lot, you are nothing but cowards, imposing your will on the people of Fiji. The Methodist church of Fiji and the people of Fiji DONOT RECONIZE YOUR GOVERNMENT AND YOUR PRIME MINISTER, simply because we did not elect them.

After the Vore, as the 'main boy' came Driti [the sadist], then came Tukaituraga [the luve-ni-sala], then now Tikoitga [the kai loma].
At the time, Driti and Tukaituraga were on "cloud nine". WHERE are they now? Gone underground, for their personal safety after no more bodyguards! WHAT are they now? They are now NOTHING but pieces of shit who are now shit scared of their shadows and the dark!
WHO are they mixing with now? Nobody would want to touch them with a piece of stick. They are very lonely people who now long for a normal life. They cannot go shopping, they cannot be seen in the daytime, they cannot go to any private club - nowhere!
WHY? Because at the time they thought they were God, they thought that they were our Saviours, they thought that they will be on that proverbial high pedestal till eternity.
CAREFUL, CAREFUL, tread carefully Tikoitoga, because you too will CERTAINLY go down the same path, and like them with your tails between your legs. ALL of you will not be able to live a normal life like us poor people who are suffering.
THUMBS UP TO DEMOCRACY!!!!

I cannot believe the claims done on this site as to knowing the PS of Information, and her having bankrupt Connect. The poster for that says they worked with Sharon, crap because her name is not the same. And two they have no idea that connect made millions and all went in as Telecom's profit at the end of the year, and right back to Government. So while I like reading the site and getting hot issues from here....they need to be substantiated now and not just another coconut wireless case. Good on you Sharon, you are my ideal Woman who can stand up to the media, military, and the nation as a whole....You go Girl.You are the one that is keeping us informed wrong or right. You got what it takes. And God Bless You for that.

I strongly disagree that Sharon the Anon should now go [leave Fiji].
Why should she, after the lying and the conniving and all the scheming?
She should now be preparing herself mentally, physically, spiritually and also sexually and like the old saying goes to 'FACE THE MUSIC' when the party of all parties commences!!.
When the music plays, are we gonna tango with her!! Just to give her a feel of what it is like to be on the receiving end.
Please, please, yalovinaka Sharon baby, do stay back. If for anybody, at least for me You know damn well who I am, as the code is in the message - remember?
