More rash talk from Tikoitoga

Mosese Tikoitoga has stepped out for a THIRD time this week to plant regime information, his latest effort defending the decision to abrogate the Constitution and naively promising there will be no more coups.

In a third 'interview' with the state owned Fiji Broadcasting Corporation, the land force commander claims the illegal scrapping of the 1997 Constitution was part of the military cleanup campaign.


According to Tikoitoga the Constitution was removed the day the military took over the elected government of Laisenia Qarase in 2006.

Tikoitoga says 'this government has from the beginning brought policies which were against the 1997 constitution and statements that it was abrogated after the court ruling is irrelevant.'


"Unfortunately, now the political parties and unions are picking on nitty-gritty issues I think the people of Fiji should be told where the state of country was under the leadership of this people and where we have come so far and then they are now picking on issues that has no relevance to the formation of a better Fiji." 

Yesterday, in his second spiel Tikoitoga rashly vowed there would be no more coups. Again, he told the chosen media agency, FBC, that a new Constitution will bring to an end the coup culture.

Tikoitoga insisted the coups which began in 1987 were 'ignited due to racial discriminations brought about by previous Constitutions.'

He says the view that one is superior than the other, was passed on to the next generation through 'our own constitutions and that is why it is important to have an impartial national document to put a full stop to coups.'

"All the coups in the 1987 coups, the 2000 coup were really based on ethno nationalism issue," he says. "It was Fijians having prominence over all the other races in Fiji but that has to change.

"It has to be changed in the Constitution once that forward looking constitution is put in place. We have a very good guarantee that we’ll never go back to that scenario where the military has to come in. So there’s no reason why the military should come back and take over government."

Tikoitoga says citizens of Fiji need to voice their views in 'building a new constitution which is unbiased so that the mindset of supremacy with one ethnic group over the other vanishes.'

According to FBC, Tikoitoga said 'with this not only the mindset to dominate will end but the culture of coup will also come to an end.'


Prior to these two interviews, Tikoitoga told FBC the military was turning its focus on the Methodist Church saying: “The Fiji Military Forces has depoliticised a lot of institutions, it’s trying to depoliticise the Great Council of Chiefs and that led to the dismissal of GCC and now it’s now trying to depoliticise the Methodist Church of Fiji.”

It seems the regime has a new voice and Tikoitoga is being groomed for a bigger role - or is it dirty work - in things to come.

Editor's Note: Tikoitoga has since tried to do a u-turn on his 'Methodist Church will be next' comment. See his interview with Pacific Beat. http://www.radioaustralia.net.au/international/radio/program/pacific-beat

Coming up: Yash Ghai dodges the question on the regime using the new Constitution to secure its exit but urges the people of Fiji to test the boundaries.

Key Fiji Military Figures are Sexual Predators

Fiji is safe, assures Col Tikoitoga but his health is not safe from major heart attack, and neither was his secretary from the sexual predator

By VICTOR LAL

Dictator Frank Bainimarama’s lackey and RFMF Land Force Commander, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga has assured Fiji is safe despite the recent hiccups caused by the Methodist Church. He said the impasse created by the Methodist Church does not have any international impact. “What we are doing here is looking after the welfare of the Fijian population,” he said.

Tikoitoga claimed that the illegal government he is propping up is not doing this to attract any international sympathy, rather doing it merely because the illegal government thinks the right thing needs to be done for the population of Fiji.

“I know it will be misconstrued by international organisations and international media but we need to do this not for them but the public of Fiji,” he said.

Tikoitoga said the government will continue to persist that the right thing is done for the people of Fiji. And, the Methodist Church is crushed to the ground.

What Tikoitoga has not told the world, least of all, to the rank-and-file military foot soldiers under his command that like his “cassava patch dasher” and coward boss, Tikoitoga is also suffering from heart problems, and was last year admitted to hospital for treatment. He is living on borrowed times.

Scandalously, while Tikoitoga is claiming that the military is acting against the Methodist Church to protect the population of Fiji, highly reliable military officers close to him, are alleging that Tikoitoga was recalled to the Queen Elizabeth Barracks because, while serving as Commissioner Central in Nausori, he had made his private secretary pregnant.

Vulaca said...

Tikoitoga's verbal daiorhea is meaningless and it stinks. The 2006 coup was undertaken to protect his boss's butt from prosecution.

It is now a vehicle for corruption by Bainimarama and Eyearse and their supporters.

Tikoitoga no amount of lies from you will make any difference to our understanding of what you criminals are doing.

Does Tikoitonga actualy understand what a Constitution is?

I fail to see in any of the previous Constitutions that part that says, "Whenever we in the military don't like something we will trash this document and start over again"...

The reason why this land force commander is a coup star and big mouth????

The reason is he is HA chairman and has awarded no tender one billion dollar waila city development project to malaysia compan- order by dictator.

This one billion dollar scam gonna cost fijian taxpayers many billions- both thugs are minting millions in bribes /kickbacks.

This thug must be investigated and stand trial and sent to naboro for life.

Day of justice muct come.

OK gang - let's get back to the topic!

The problem with the 1997 Constitution isn't that there is something fundamentally flawed about it that needs re-writing. The problem is that, whatever it said or directed, the military chose not to obey it.

So if the Fiji military couldn't obey the 1997 Constitution or the 1970 Constitution, what guarantees do we have that they'll obey any new future one put in place.

So the focus of the military needs to be on practicing legal obedience to the existing law - not on making amateur judgments on its alleged pros and cons or assuming that they'll only obey a Constitution that's "good enough".

If they obeyed the silly & criminal commands of the Commander, they can certainly obey the legal if not quite perfect requirements of Fiji's existing Constitution.

OK i'll say it, the 1997 constitution is not a good constitution! There were many problems which i personally don't
agree with in the constitution. Most areas were left open for the court to interpret !Why? This is our chance to close off all these
problems. I have every intention to
show at the constitution commission

So it is in the military hands whether there is to be a coup or not according to tikotoga. He has just pointed the finger back to the military who are the source of all coups. What if elections happened and is not in their liking - will they break their words on this. They are not to be trusted.

The profundity of the man's capacity for political expression is on a level unmatched since the wit and wisdom of Pita Driti! Remember him?

The two could be very compatible bunkmates.

Actually, I'm encouraged by his comments. After all, he says the new constitution will do away with coup culture, perhaps in much the way that pure communism is supposed to cause the withering away of the state.

Following his own reasoning, then, Fiji's military should begin disbanding right away, as in Bainimarama's glorious new Fiji it will no longer be needed.

Reminds me of when Teleni said he would end all crime in Fiji by the end of 2009, and sure enough, since then, hallelujah, all crime stopped being reported!

Military justifies 2006 coup

13:11 Today

Taken from/By: Google
Report by: Dev Sachindra

The present military has responded to those who claim the Bainimarama government has been no different to earlier takeovers.

Discussion has arisen since announcement of the consultation process for a new constitution.

Defending the military of the day, Land Force Commander, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga says the present government’s been the saviour of Fiji.

“Bainimarama had every right to take over government and run government from 2000 but because he understood the principles of democracy and that RFMF did not wanted to get involved in the running of the country, and because we knew the damages that occurs in 1987, Bainimarama didn’t want to take over government, he wanted to restore law and order after 2000 and then give the government to someone that can run it and make it better."

Tikoitoga claims the rot set in around 2000, and Bainimarama led the military takeover only after they had endured a deteriorating situation over a long time, putting up with scams, corruption and bribery.

“After several years of head on clashes disagreements, renegotiations, consultations unfortunately it just didn’t work so 5 or 6 years down the line there was no other choice- by then the economic well being of Fiji was very low, by then, it was very evident that there was systematic corruption in all government ministries, by then we knew that the agriculture scam and vote buying and vote banking was at rise between different government ministries so Bainimarama took over.”

Tikoitoga says the new constitution must be designed to help stop upheavals in Fiji ,it must leave no room for discrimination.

In 2000, I was still in the Army. Tikoitoga was an insignificant young officer.
I remember, whilst doing guard duties at the QEB main gate at the time that Ganilau and Nailatikau were very frequent visitors to the Officers Mess at night.
I remember that whilst checking around, the three of them with Voreqe were sitting in the darkened Ante Room, whilst the rest of the officers were at the bar.
One night I overhear both Ganilau and Nailatikau saying 'KITAKA'. We are behind you!!
