No surprises today over the Fijian Holdings Ltd's decision to bid New Zealander Carl Ngamoki-Cameron haere ra: the parting of the ways was a matter of time after revelations shareholders had very serious gripes about Ngamoki-Cameron and his 'misuse of office'.
What has been interesting is the way the board has extricated itself from yet another disaster.
Ngamoki-Cameron's appointment has been rescinded by Frank Bainimarama in his capacity as the Minister for iTaukei Affairs.
According to reports, the 'rescinding' means Cameron, who challenged the investigation into his impropriety, will automatically relinquish his chairmanship and directorship in all FHL subsidiary companies, where he is a board member.
In another supposed show of transparency after being conned and ripped off by yet another chairman, Bainimarama has re-appointed Iowane Naiveli as acting chair.
Just nine months ago Naiveli was ressurected from the ranks of retired directors (he opted out in 2008) and made acting chairman because of the double dipping and raiding of the till that led to the sacking of managing director, Sereana Qoro, and chairman Isoa Kaloumaria.
As it did with Qoro and Kaloumaria, FHL has damaged control the Ngamoki-Cameron fiasco to avoid having more egg on its face over the dodgy appointments it makes.
The post Ngamoki-Cameron FHL board is now made up of Iowane Naiveli, Padam Lala, Sai-moni Lutu, Ulai-yasi Baya and Ilimotama Cawi with the usual but all too shallow reassurance from FHL that it's business as usual.
