Rewa leader tells Bainimarama he cannot ignore chiefs

In a second letter to Fiji's self-appointed leader, the Rewa chief Ro Teimumu Kepa, says chiefs have always had a voice in the governance of Fiji and despite criticism have been the stabilizing factor, helping control ethnonationalism.

She says recent research in three provinces show indigenous people continue to make their decisions through the chiefs. Quote: ".... the obsession of government to remove racial issues from governance is shortsighted and ill-conceived for ethnicity is a fact of life."

She tells Bainimarama: "The revolutionary changes you are making cannot be made without the involvement of the GCC. Any calamity between the races or even between indigenous Fijians themselves can only be resolved with the involvement of the GCC."

Even talking about "calamity between the races" makes this woman unfit to hold any responsible position in national life. This is the last gasp of the old order in Fiji.

Believe it or not said...

Am less enthusiastic myself about the New Order. It too is unfit and riddled with inequity and corruption. Truth is on her side - most of the provinces are still behind the chiefs.

This letter should have followed the 1987 coup? Imagine if it had?unfortunately for all Fijians the train has left the station.

Never to be trusted again said...

Backing this coup by indians was a foolish mistake. Of that there is no doubt. As for trusting them? Never again.

It doesn't matter who is wrong or right re the old or new order. It just isn't acceptable anymore to talk about racial conflict in Fiji. It's a construct of those who want trouble, not a reflection of what's happening on the ground between ordinary people. We all have to get along come what may and most people accept that. Those who don't are a minority and have to be rejected. What does Ro Teimumu mean by "racial calamity"? The mere choice of the word implies a cataclysmic conflict in which people suffer. That's what makes her statement unacceptable. Yes, ethnicity is a way of life. But it doesn't mean people can't live in mutual tolerance and respect. By using the word "calamity", this chief is signalling a clash between races. It isn't going to happen. And not because frank Bainimarama won't tolerate it but because ordinary people don't want it. What future does this hold for anyone's children? Nothing. We need a multiracial Fiji or we remain locked in a time warp of suspicion and hatred.

lets face it...Ro Kepa wants to maintain the old order so the so called commoners continue to sit at her feet- check out the photo in mark's earlier post. Not even the Queen of England has that privelege. the old order is dead. Get over it. No more Ratu too. Just Ului now. Ask the common villager if they think "chiefs" do anything for them apart from wanting bigger shares of lease monies. Yeah for their 4wds.

Anonymous said...

Your correspondent speaks of the "last gasp of the old order". Yet what kind of "new order" is envisaged. Rule by tyrannnical government? Because the current regime is a tyranny as defined by Aristotle - where a government rules without authority from the people. Whatever the leaders of this tyrannical government might say about the nature of their rule, it remains a tyranny and to have disenfranchised the chiefs further exacerbates that tyranny.

Absolutely!! Chiefly system is here to stay and is part of our culture...whether you like it VB or not!!

We have expert advisors that can assist the chiefs in their various provinces.
We dont need the ARMY to jump in to advise the chiefs, that's not their role....You follow your lane and the rest will follow theirs...

What i don't understand from the GCC sympathizers who will predominantly be i-taukei is why would a modern men in this century want a person of flash and blood just like them who eats shits loves hates etc and has no ability to change water into wine rule over them. Most of you bloggers seriously need to pick up the dictionary and check the meaning of democracy which i believe this site is still about. If you want hierarchical monarchy's to rule over you and make decisions for you then why waste your time on this blog site. Frank is doing the same. He has appointed himself king with the barrel of the gun after all most monarchy's have been founded on war and conquering so what is the difference. For me personally i say down with the Queen down with the chiefs and down with the dictator. Their is no difference between all the above. I want absolute freedom to choose my leader and remove him if he or she does not perform. That is democracy. I mean seriously in this age of I-pads, flats screen TV's, Tourist trips into space, face book,twitter and all the rest of our modern advancements do you still want a bunch of no school traditional chiefs making decisions for you. What a bunch of losers.Where is your self respect.

I am not an indigenous Fijian, but any casual observer can see that Bainimarama's misguided policies, such as peremptorily abolishing the GCC, are leading Fiji towards calamitous racial strife. God bless the Gone Marama Bale for her stand against this foolish and treasonous dictatorship.

That why she had an affair with Lenora's husband. It's her chiefly role like Ratu Naiqama now living with third wife, a 16 year old. Only they have contributed to their demise. Their role as cheifs in their villages and provinces remains and was never taken away which is what CCF and ECREA are confirming. There is no role for them in governance. Even the Togans are doing away with monarchy in governance. they were never elected. They assumed their chiefly status through tribal wars not democracy. The colonial masters brought in the chiefly aristocracy, there was non in Fiji. Read the Wilkingson Report available on the net to tell you that this chiefs were never like this and have tried to be some royalty enslaving the people. Get real Teimumu and stop your crap.

Anon@8.50. Can you ask yourself 'why did the coups take place'? If you still have brain cells working, which I highly doubt, the first coup and the ones that follow, came about because of racial tension.

Threats and blackmail.

Without Chiefs there will be violence.

The ever present force for good by the chiefs to hold back the savagery of their people.

Its probably the only reason we do actually need an army in Fiji, to keep in check biligerant Chiefs who loose power and want to take it by force.

Well the way to do that as we have seen over and over again is the easier route by taking control or influencing the army to do just that on their behalf.

The reality is that its harder to get the huge majority of the sensible Lewenivanua to rise up as the Chiefs like to threaten.
Uprisings need a big dose of buisnessmens cash and the green light of the army.

Let there be reform, and let that discussion be by the "commoners", after all who do the Chiefs represent?

Themselves?
The People?
God?, which one?
Jesus?
Kalomaira? - take your pick!

You are playing too much into the "calamity between the races" that you have missed the whole point of her letter to Crankie Frankie!

Why don't you just stand aside and accept Frank for what he is (a Dictator who is power hungry) and let the Marama RTD do her thing so you can learn a thing or two of what COURAGE is you d!@$b s@#t!

The chiefly system is part of Fiji and will always be there. Voceke as made a terrible mistake and he will pay dearly for it, along with his boss Aiyarse who was the instigator behind this.

The racial issue will always be around and from all accounts, it's the majority of Indians who are very supportive of the abolition of the GCC. Aiyarse knows this and sadly the Indians are blindly following him.

It's only a matter of time before the Fijians had enough of this bullshit and Voceke will have more problems to deal with. There are elements in the army who furious with Voceke and there are signs another mutiny is in the making.

Some intellectually dishonest types who try to portray the Gone Marama Bale as a race baiter betray their ignorance of the woman. She has been a strong advocate of nonviolence in pursuit of social justice. She doesn't resemble the caricature of the chiefs at all. She epitomizes the servant-leader Jesus extols in the Book of Matthew. Although a devout Catholic, she stood by her cultural obligations as host to champion the right of Methodists to go ahead with their annual meeting in Rewa. Ro Teimumu is Fiji's own version of Aung San Suu Kyi and would make a worthy president.

The Roko Tui Dreketi isn't only talking about calamities between the races, but 'even between indigenous Fijians themselves'. Bainimarama supporters like to join his pretense that the issue is race, to avert attention from the real issue, which is treason.

Those who support this regime because they genuinely believe it is bringing modernity to Fiji are hopelessly deluded. These are neanderthals with guns whose real interest is only in self-preservation.

The situation in Fiji is already calamitous. What else do you call it when traitors seize your elected government and hold the entire country at gunpoint, turn it into a regional pariah, rubbish your constitution, take away your vote, censor your press, sabotage the economy, plunder your pension fund, forbid gatherings of three or more, stomp pregnant women, firebomb and torture political opponents, dismiss the entire judiciary, close parliament, spurn your nation's historic allies, take ruinous loans, open the country to organized crime, forbid church meetings, abolish your cultural institutions, get your military blacklisted from future peacekeeping operations, punish those who speak the truth, appoint and promote those who lie, etc., etc.? Does that sound like the path to modernity to you?

The Bainimarama regime is calamitous. It has been a calamity, and it will only bring down greater calamity on Fiji the longer it is allowed to continue.

Sorry, Iris, but I don't second that motion at all. Here's a suggestion -- before we talk about electing people who are born to hereditary cultural positions, why don't we go back to electing those who, like our PM and parliamentarians, are supposed to be elected officials, rather than do the bidding of the thugs who have commited treason to usurp those positions?

Bainimarama and Khaiyum now know that they dont stand a chance in the elections, they will do whatever they can to remain in power, and if they fail, they are already having their pockets full so that when they are kicked out/retire, they will have abundant $$$ to last their lifetime of luxury. That money probably will be from the tax payers like you and me...This is the talk of the town now...

If the GCC did its work, for all the powers and respect it has had from the people, there should not the kind of problems we have in Fiji. There should have been a single focus on improving the lives of ordinary people. The fact is its a useless org, that does not serve any purpose.

The concept of having Chiefs as the only leaders who can lead the Fijian people is a Colonial hangup-which we all need to realise sooner rather than later! The last of the autocratic Chiefs was the late Tui Nayau! If the Chiefly system is to survive into the future that decision will have to be made by the Fijian people cause there are other issues at play here also. We might have a GCC along the same lines as the House of Lords who come together to contribute for the betterment of all of Fiji but if we are to to just have the GCC as a political follower of Indigenous Fijian Governments than we doomed. The proof of that is where we are now today-the GCC played politics and lost the plot for their key role in the survival of the nation-especially when coups took place! How many Chiefs spoke up and said we were travelling down a wrong path than will come to haunt us! I can count them on just 2 fingers-the Late Turaga Ratu of Verata and the Tui Ba who is still around today. These were lone voices of true Leaders who knew past Fijian politics was as dirty & mean as it can be well and also knew where we were headed.Its a pity we didn't have too many Chiefs speak up then because that would have given us maybe a totally diffrent Fiji than what we now have? So i ask again are we ready for democracy? Are we going to have Chiefs there as followers or real time Leaders for all of the people of of Fiji & not puppets for Governments? Can we have Chiefs to lead the Vanua and seperate themselves from the political leadership role, or is a problem situation? If we did not have a GCC as a political body can the Cheifly system still exist? It sure can but we can't go back to way things were because we already know of the outcome of Chiefs trying to play politics form inside the GCC or for that matter the Church playing politics-its the NATION that suffers!DRi yani.

To anonymous April 13, 2012 5:58 AM...Ipads, twitter etc..etc...has nothing to do with democracy...Democracy no matter what definition you find in a dictionary will always be applied differently in every countries although they share the same principles;ie to bring the voice to the local people. British democracy still allows them to have the house of Lords who still have members by virtue of a hereditary peerage, Switzerland has 7 Presidents,and their democracy tells them that 95% of the workforce should rest on Sunday although only 3% of the population confessed to be Christian... What's wrong with Fijian democracy that has a Great council of Chiefs... The chiefs are very much aware that more and more Fijians are well educated and that they have to change their approach of leadership.They are aware that the Fijian silence does not always mean that they agree with them...but still the commoner respect that position ( chief)because it is their identity.
As long as Fijians still operates in a tribal society, the value of the Chief will always be a priority. The only time that majority of the Fijian will do away with the chiefly system is when these tribal system does not exist anymore. GCC is still part of democracy...The Fijian definition of democracy....

Its the taxpayers who decide whether GCC is required or not. Its not based on race.

The abolition of the GCC is Aiyarse's idea right from the start. One credible inside source said Voceke was pushed into it by none other than Aiyarse. In fact Aiyarse wanted to issue a decree abolishing the Council but he felt Naiulukau will oppose it. So he sweet-talked Voceke because it's better that is comes from a native Fijian.

In other words, Voceke and Naiulukau sold out the GCC. While this was implemented, Voceke gladly accepted the title Chief WankWank. That's the irony of all that. He wants to be the only chief, and Aiyarse was given the opportunity to oppress native Fijians. One should not look no further than his thesis. He was out to destroy the chiefs in the hope that it will filter down to ordinary Fijians. Dismantling the GCC, in Aiyarse's eyes, will pave the way for him to stay in power.

Wrong move Aiyarse and Voceke.

Why-A-SI? said...

A LOT HAS BEEN SAID BY THE STAND OF RO TEIMUMU KEPA; POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE. IT IS ADVISABLE THAT WE AS INDIVIDUALS ANALYZE VERY CAREFULLY WHAT SHE IS DOING; THE SCENARIOS AROUND HER STAND.

FIRST, SHE IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HER FEMININITY; BEING A WOMAN...OTHER CHIEFS ARE MOSTLY MALES WHO CAN BE SUSCEPTIBLE TO ILL TREATMENT BY THE MILITARY

SECOND, SHE IS BLESSED WITH BEING BORN INTO A CHIEFLY FAMILY THAT ACCORDS HER THE RIGHT TO RULE AND LEAD A PROVINCE AND CONFEDERACY.

THIRD, SHE IS IN A STRONG POSITION OF BEING PART OF THE OLD POLITICAL ORDER; THAT WHICH OPENS DOORWAYS AND WINDOWS FOR HER AND THOSE IN THAT ELITE GROUP.

FOURTH, THROUGH THE ABOVE THE MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION ARE AWARE OF HER AND HER SERVICE IN PUBLIC LIFE, PRODUCTIVE OR OTHERWISE???...AND SHE HOPES TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS.

FIFTH, SHE HAS THE WOMEN'S GROUPS IN HER CORNER THROUGH GENDER PARTICULARLY OR BY ASSOCIATION AND AFFILIATION...AND THIS IS ANOTHER STRENGTH SHE IS COUNTING ON.

SIXTH, SHE IS COUNTING ON "GENUINE" TAUKEI HUMANE SIDE OF LIFE; THAT THERE IS STILL A LOT OF GOOD IN TAUKEI WHO CAN DO SOMETHING, BIG OR SMALL TO CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS REMOVING THE CANCEROUS BLIGHTS IN BAINIMARAMA AND KHAIYUM...FOR THOSE WHO CARE TO TAKE STOCK OF OUR SITUATION, STAND UP AND BE COUNTED.

IN FACT SHE IS GROPING IN THE DEEP DARK ABYSS ON BEHALF OF HER FELLOW HIGH CHIEFS TO SALVAGE THEIR POSITIONS AND STATUS AMONGST THE I TAUKEI AND THE NATION.

LITTLE DID SHE REALIZE THAT IT WAS THEM DURING THEIR TIME AT THE POLITICAL HELM THAT TOOK THE FIJI NATIONAL SHIP OFF THE COURSE.

THEY LED WITH IMPUNITY, A TOTAL DISREGARD FOR THE COMMON GRASSROOT PEOPLE, LOOKING BIG HIGH AND MIGHTY THUMBING THEIR NOSES SINCE KKTMARA'S TIME TO QARASE'S TIME...THIS IS STALE INFORMATION AS EVERYONE IN FIJI KNOWS.

WITH THEM I INCLUDE EXPLOITATIONS OF THE SITUATIONS AND ABUSES THEN BY THE METHODIST CHURCH AND OTHER ORGANISATIONS CLOSE TO THESE POLITICIANS INCLUDING BUSINESS PEOPLE WHO CONTINUED TO CURRY FAVOUR THEM FOR ECONOMIC MILEAGE.

THIS LADY LOOKS RESPECTABLE AND IS SUPPOSED TO EXUDE AN AURA OF CHIEFLY FINESSE...

UNFORTUNATELY THOUGH I HAVE TRIED TO CHANGE MY PERCEPTION OF HER DURING THE PAST 40 YEARS, I STILL CANNOT GET OUT OF MY MIND WHAT I HAD SEEN OF HER AT USP IN THE EARLY SEVENTIES...A HIGH CHIEF WHO BASED ON MY TRADITIONAL STATUS I SHOULD LOOK UP AND SHOW RESPECT TO.

I HAD WORKED WITH AND UNDER HER WITH GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT.

It's possible some of us might be getting a little overheated unnecessarily over the use of the word 'calamity'. There HAS been trouble and conflict in our past so what Ro Teimumu is saying is true.

It is true some of the chiefs were and are self-serving, just as many church ministers are throughout the Pacific and politicians are in New Zealand and Australia. But has the Bainimarama government and leadership been any better? No. In fact, they have been much worse - writing removing the rule of law to maintain their illegal and treasonous leadership. It depends on who you think is the worse evil of course. There is no doubt in my mind it's the Bainimarama and Khaiyum circus.

It has been reliably reported that Fiji Red Cross has ran short of its distribution stock and ha been advised by the FRCS Health Coordinator in West – Marica Kepa to stop (hold) on to all distribution after consultation with Director General Christoper Ho, Esoroma and International Red Cross Crescent – David.

New distribution stock will not be bought as other donor agencies are distributing relief items specially DISMAC and FRCS is trying to save money which was recently given by the donor agencies.

Reports have come that few districts who do not need the relief packs were actually supplied with and those who were not in need were not.

This can be easily be confirmed with the FRCS district administrators from Sigatoka to Rakiraki.

It has also been reported that some volunteeres who were part of the team with Marica Kepa are former SDL members and are in field with her doing campaign for SDL. Even one of the volunteer was refused entry by Police at Nadi town end and was returned from the check point.

It has also been reported by Keith that few items belonging to FRCS has been stolen from the Government storage

Why-Ass-i. First of all, there is a caps lock key on the keyboard, but you're too stupid to see that. Secondly, you are a typical coward hiding behind a computer screen and hurling tirades after tirades against another person.

As one blogger stated, why don't you say those things to her face? I know you're gutless and will never ever do that. This woman has written letters to Voceke a few times voicing her opposition to what he's been doing. She stood her ground and Voceke wouldn't dare touch her.

If you have brain cells still functioning, Voceke ordered his useless goons to arrest Mere Samasoni, a woman by the way. Now why didn't Voceke order his goons to arrest RTD? Well the answer is simple, Voceke is scared because she's a high chief and afraid of the repercussions that will bring.

To cut the long story short because you can't read after few sentences, Voceke is scared and he's just a gutless pig, just like you.

Wake Up, you mean to say Graham Davis has a blog? Who knew?

If the GCC is a 'colonial hang-up', how much more an elected PM, parliament, an independent judiciary, Christianity, human rights, racial and gender equality, etc.?

Want to abolish the GCC? That is a question for Fijians to decide, and they can only decide such a question properly when they live freely under their own government. Fundamental constitutional questions like these cannot be lawfully addressed during the Bainimarama Captivity, and to suggest otherwise is tantamount to treason if you're a Fijian citizen, grossly inappropriate interference if you are not. We should defer all discussion of such issues until Fiji is again on the path to democracy.

First of all, THe GCC never at any stage in its existence sat down and discussed how to do a coup and commit treason against its own people.
Unlike idiots like Bainimarama, Shameem , the military council and others who sat down and met every week to plot the overthrow of the Government of the people of Fiji.

So please stop saying THe GCC was plotting Coups because they did not.

Were there individual chiefs who were taking sides?
Of course. Just like those USP academics who came out and supported Bainimarama.

Should we then dismantle USP because their professors sided with Bainimarama?
Of course not!

Bainimarama is an idiot.And so are the stupid professors who joined him.

Some chiefs are good and some are bad. They are just like normal people.

I think the GCC should exist but not have the political influence that it used to have.
May be a status like "the Governor" in Australia. More ceremonial than anything else.

Bainimarama used the GCC (Rt Iloilo) for his own ends and then got rid of him.
Even now he still uses Rt Nailatikau

How can people say Bai has got rid of the GCC when he's got Nailatikau there.
The position of President in Fiji is revered because Fijians honor their chiefs,
Bai knows that and he is milking that cow for all its worth.

Bai is not thinking about the people of Fiji,
Bai is just thinking about himself.
People who still support Bai are either evil greedy people or are obviously so blind and have the reasoning capacity of a maina bird.

@Why A-SI?

STOP LYING TO YOURSELF!!! You are currently in a state of anxiety and I dont blame you. I suggest you put your EXTREME JEALOUS opinions of Ro Temumu Kepa aside and brace yourself. Simply accept your accorded VIP Seat to view unfolding events that speaks of JUSTICE FOR THE PEOPLE to the very people who were ILLEGALLY UNELECTED to rule Fiji. The ongoing manipulation and enslavement of the minds of the people of this nation needs to STOP! Rule by way of controlling the minds of the people by instilling FEAR via THREATS, CRUELTY and INTIMIDATION etc etc and A BARRAGE of FALSE DECREES need to STOP!

We definitely have no time for pathetic and useless comments reeked with ill-will against Ro Te Mumu. Its also TABU to maliciously gossip about the Lady the way you do.

Get a life and pray for FIJI and those whose only desire is to retain the rights and dignity of the people of FIJI by PEACEFUL means!!!!

....BY P E A C E F U L MEANS!!!

Let the fijians decide for themselves if they want the GCC to remain..and who the F*** is Bainimarama to be making decisions for them anyway..what has he done to proclaim that he is indeed the saviour of this country from corruption when now its all so obvious that he is too corrupt..in fact more corrupt then all the past governments put together,,why isn't there any auditor generals report that in past governments always publish in the national dailies../fiji sun, fiji Times and all media outlets so all hardworking taxpayers of this country could see where their hard earned dollars are going??..At least past governments had the accountability of ansewering directly to the taxpayer whereas this illegal government hides all its dirty deals under the illegal media decree..and as for the chiefs..People that say chiefs are no good for the country are mere opportunists that look for ways to diseminate what has and always will be with us fijians..people like Bainimarama and khaiyum who look for ways to destabilize a country that has its foundations built on religion,tradition and culture..They try to add weight on their excuses by saying that this will be the new fiji..who are they??..may I ask??..For as long as we fiji citizens are concerned..they are a bunch of criminals that are trying very hard to get away with murder..treason..bribery..lies..deceit..rape and torture..Your time is coming when you will be locked for life ,,and thats including the old paedophile poof Gates..Christopher Pryde..Sharon Johns bimbo..shamimi sisters and all that have gained employment and gained monetary benefits under this illegal governments..

Bloggers who applaud the abolition of the GCC have no cultural identity. And to suggest that Voceke has rid Fiji of racial differences is ludicrous. There will always be that element in any society. The Swedish gunman who killed scores some time ago did it out of racial hatred.

Rabuka staged the first coup because he and his supporters did not want Indian domination. Speight used the same argument. Then comes this mad man Voceke, and guess what? He also used the racial card to justify that coup.

Now there's talk of a new constitution that will eliminate that, but the reality is, it won't go away. To compound the issue, he abolished the GCC. The fact of the matter is, that order came from Aiyarse, and he used Voceke and Naiulukau to do carry out his dirty deeds.

Come on Fiji, the coup mentality has been deeply entrenched in Fijian society and sadly this will continue to be unless the army is disbanded. They're useless anyway.

Dakuwaqa and Anonymous 9:39 are right. The fate of the GCC is for Fijians to decide, and who the f*** are Bainimarama and Aiyaz anyway but a couple of lying and bloody minded traitors?

Baininarama's treasonous supporters signalled the approach they're going to take to The Lady's letter with their very first comment, saying it is the last gasp of the old order and shows she is unfit for office. Well, if they really want to campaign against the chiefs by impugning the noble character of Ro Teimumu, then they've miscalculated indeed.

And to say that The Lady has 'played the race card' is rich, isn't it, coming from these people after they used race to justify their overthrow of the government and then to assault iTaukei institutions?

All Fijians would live in greater harmony under Ro Teimumu's brand of leadership but will never know peace under this illegal regime.

In 2000 after Qarese was appointment as an interim PM, he went to address General Assembly in New York. When Qarese was addressing the General Assembly, a ambassador from one of the African countries asked him who had appointed him as an interim PM. Qarese's answer was that he was appointed by The Great Council of Chiefs. This Ambassador then proceeded to ask "What Chiefs? Tell me what chiefs? Who are this Chiefs? there is no such thing as CHIEFS. I am a Chief, you are a Chief, every one here in this General Assembly Hall is a chief. The days of the chief is long gone. In Africa we did away with chiefs. Is Fiji that much behind time?"

Qarese sat there dump founded and was startled. Needless to say it took him few minutes to get himself together have a drink of warter and than started delivering his speech.

So folks here is my question to you. Is that this ambassador made the observation in 2000, are we still that backwards? Do we still need a chief to hold our hand? Are we that incapable to make decisions for ourselves? Do we want to be told what to do and when to do?

Now my fellow Fijians, I want to open up a clean, healthy and educated discussion.

Guju's only controls employment in the country. No need to control MPC. It was MPC who controled the Govt once, later tried to control Bainimarama Govt as Minister of Finanace and currently the primary suppoerters of Bainimarama is all the former or current supporters of MPC. Enough said; let us not focus on race and communities we must instead unite irrespective of our differences in believes to rebuild Fiji - create employment, provide funds for education and health care. Every community or members of the society have a role to play so long as they play with the same set of rules. We all need to work hard and play hard. Perhaps the people who complain the most are the ones who just wants to play hard but do not like to work hard. LET US REBUILD FIJI

Fijiana, this African chap should look at the state of affairs in Africa before he commented on chiefs.

Chiefs in Fiji will always be there, and it's part of Fiji tradition, always have been. A question for you: why then did Voceke accepted the title Chief WankWank? Perhaps he wants to be the one and only chief. He should have been called Thief WankWank.

I am very sure that Gujjis will not waste their valuable time to control Mahen Chood hry. He definitely is not worth their time. Gujjis have much bigger to fish to fry and that is to keep the economy of Fiji going.

So all you Choodu's supporters (underwear) and Choodu, don't kid yourself live under the illusion that Gujjis are preoccupied worring about Chood hry.

Why make trouble? said...

I just don't understand why Ro Teimumu used this phrase about calamity in a letter that was perfectly good without it. She must have known that Davis and others would go for it. Maybe she's happy that he's put her on the front page of the Sun but it doesn't do any of us any good. The Baini can make political capital out of it and depict her as a racist. We Fijians have to be a lot smarter. Imagine. If he can get every kai idia and kai valagi to vote for him in 2014, he doesn't need many i'taukei to win. So why alienate all these people and for what? Our quarrel isn't with them but Baini and Ayarse and the thugs that keep them there. Ro Teimumu would be far better off trying to woo these people than offend them. A lot of real Fijians I know are over going on about race. The Indians are our fellow citizens, are "Fijians" too and we all have to work together. We don't need to feel threatened. It's the chiefs and the church who worry about us abandoning them so they try to make a big deal about the differences between us. It's called divide and rule.

Have you ever lived in Africa? Your discussion clearly indicate how naive you are...Chiefs are alive and well in Africa...there may be individuals who give comment like you give....but these individuals are nothing more than the self serving politician who only think about themselves when they are in leadership.
Abolishing the chiefs doesn't mean that one has advanced...it simply means that the country is spirally on its way down loss of identity...I have lived and traveled around Africa...the chiefs are alive and well from the nomads in the desert of Sahara, the Sub- Saharan right up to the Savannahs... and let me tell you...Your comment is nothing but an " ucu mai duru" if you are a fijian you will know what it means...
The U.N. recognized indigenous rights...and chiefs are part of the indigenous rights...Perhaps the U.N. is more backwards than that African politician...

As far as Chief WankWank goes, I suggest you ask him. I am neither his messenger nor I can answer the question on his behalf.

Your take on chiefs being always here, you are absulultly wrong again. El wrongo they were here yesterday, They are not here today. You can be rest assured they will not be here tomorrow. Their days are gone. They are history. They are dinosaur.

So wake up from your sleep and stop dreaming This is not going to happen. We may only find about the chiefs (thieves) of Fiji in history books. .

A lot is being said about Chaudhry's dislike or hate for people of Gujarati community. I am surprised that no one has ever ventured to find out as to the reason.

Well here is the scoop. When Mahendra Chaudhery was a young boy, this Gujarati man used to frequent their home during the day time. Mahendra's father would be out in the farm.

As any young kid, Mahendra got curious and one day hid himself just to see what was going on.
This Gujarati man came to the house. The mother made tea for the guest. After having tea the man and the mother started to hold each other and get physical. One thing led to the other. Pretty soon the man started to hump the mother.

Ever since than Mahendra Chaudhry has this thing about Gujaratis. All things considered, I think he is justified in his feelings. But I also feel that he needs to let it go. That happened long time ago. Plus it was only one Gujarati that did this. So why blame the whole community?

Anonymous said...

Thank you Ro Teimumu, at least out of all our chiefly households you have said your bit, loud and clear. As for the other chiefs, why not follow suit, and flood that illegal PM's office with your own message of condemnation of the illegal act.
Which of these two institutions have brought more instability to Fiji ?, FMF or GCC? Certainly not the latter.

Ro Teimumu you have every right to voice the concern of the institution that you proudly represent together with its subjects. One thing is for certain in this country, governments come and go, illegal that some may be, dictatorial, corrupt, etc.. But Fiji's chiefly system will be around and will survive even the darkest days, because it lives in the souls of its very own people and not only on paper.

WHY THERE HAS BEEN NO RETALIATION FROM THE FIJIAN PEOPLE AGAINST THIS REGIME IS BECAUSE THE CHIEFS ARE HOLDING THEIR PEOPLE BACK. THEY DO NOT WANT A REPEAT OF 2000 MAYHEM AND THEY DO NOT WANT TO SE A TAUKEI vs TAUKEI CONFRONTATION. THE TAUKEI WILL REACT ONCE THEY ARE TOLD TO DO SO BY THEIR CHIEFS. AND IF THERE IS RETALIATION EVERYBODY IN THIS COUNTRY WILL SUFFER AS THEY WILL BE SANDWICHED IN BETWEEN. TAUKEI ARE NO COWARDS..THEY WILL DO ANYTHING FOR THEIR CHIEFS. IT HAS BEEN PROVEN IN THE PAST AND IT CAN HAPPEN AGAIN. SO PLEASE EVERYBODY WHO HAVE BEEN COMMENTING EXCERCISE WISDOM AND RESTRAINT. HAVE YOU STILL NOT LEARNT FROM WHAT HAPPENBED ON THE STREETS OF SUIVA IN 1987 AND 2000. AND I TELL YOU ONCE SOMETHING SPARKS UP, THERE WILL BE AN INSTANT DIVISION IN THE MILITARY. MANY OF OUR RELATIVES IN THE MILITARY ARE CONCERNED AND ARE UNHAPPY WITH ALL THAT ARE BEING DONE TO TAUKEI INSTITUTIONS AND THEY ARE JUST BIDING THEIR TIME. THIS PROVES THAT CHIEFS PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN HAVING PEACE AND STABILITY IN THIS COUNTRY. OUR CURRENT CROIP OF ARE EDUCATED AND KNOW THAT INSTABILITY IS NOT GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY, THAT'S WHY THEY ARE ADVISING THEIR PEOPLE AGAINST DOING ANYTHING AGAINST THE RULING GOONS.

Valataka na dina my question is simple How many Chiefs came out and said that they did'nt support the first coup we had? The reason i ask is also simple if Chiefs had got up then and said we are not supporting this COUP which is firstly wrong and secondly it will come to haunt us and several generations of our children. As i mentioned there were only 2 Chiefs form the GCC that i can remember who spoke up against what Rabuka did-the late Ratu of Verata and the Tui Ba! Everyone else in the GCC was mute? Why? Because it was a case of getting rid of an Indo-Fijian Government led by Dr Bavadra. Today you want to make amends by comparing Chiefs with the Lecturers at USP-come on lets get real .Until we can admit to our ownselves the wrongs of believing that a coup was good because it got rid of an Indo-Fijian Govt we will still believe the same old bull and keep dragging this shit with us till we drop dead. No wonder we have the likes of Frank existing! As someone said this site is about democracy-it was democratically elected Govt that was got rid off by Rabuka do we need to go on about that? If Franks coup was conduct by another race in Fiji there would have been bloodshed in Fiji but because its conducted by Frank who is a Fijian its a simple case of 'levu la na vosa tikai ni dua e sogo na nona qanibulu " so that it translates into action! We are so good at blamming others when things go wrong but never willing to admit we are not as innocent as we like to make out-my favourite word" dau kanakana ya rua" A word from ancient times that best describes the goings on of i Taukei from ancient times guess what it still living and thriving today in Fiji. Don't believe me -just look at the opposition to Frank when he came to power now its matanigasau -left, right & centre! All that is left is to bring the pepa ni val lailai.

Don't give the comment about "B.J" as it totally reveals the real you...if you want to end the discussion by hauling insult...then don't suggest to the others to share their views.
Again, I am not writing because of my political affiliation...I am writing my comments based on what is part of my world view...identity...You can give the lists of the wrong things that the chiefs have done...it would still not waver my support for the Chief...because that makes me a "Fijian" or " I Taukei" if you want a politically correct term. A chief is a human being who makes mistakes like me and everyone else in this blog site...It is our duty to share our disagreement to them in a " culturally appropriate way of showing grievances" in order to help them to be more fair in their style of leadership.
Instead of removing the GCC institution, the best way is to have an open discussion about the commoners expectation about the institution in the 21st century...Of course the chiefs cannot operate as if we are uneducated but still they have to re-define their roles to meet the needs of the 21st centuries very well educated commoners...

Lead, huh! Bainimarama can't trust most of his troops enough to give them ammo. And the army is lamusona -- you said so yourself.

GCC was contrived by the British to keep the chiefs from uniting behind another Cakobau. If the GCC is abolished, as Bainimarama claims, then let all chiefs unite behind Ro Teimumu.

You want a new order of chiefs, because you think Fijians would rather be led by the likes of Chief Wankwank? If this regime wants to break the social contract with the chiefs, then the chiefs are under no constraint to abide by the old rules. I hope they unite to create a new order alright -- a just Fiji with punishment for treason.

The European countries have finally realized that if they are not wise with their utilization of land...they are in for a big trouble...well that's Europe...we are Fiji...we do not care about environment....we will continue develop...let our descendants worry about our mistakes...and let them curse us...we don't care....we have accumulated a lot of money at present....

@6.44am I think he thinks he can win it legitimately hence the constitution talks and all the propaganda about fiji having fair elections for the first time: one man one vote. Don't know what is worst the coup or the official bullshit

The Chiefs will always be chiefs and what Bainimarama did was a grate error that will affect the future of our Nation and as well as its future generation but to restore the GCC is a perfact idea of at least giving them a bit of decission making in goverment since they are all part of Fijian Culture

Chiefs should confine themselves to matters of indigenous culture, not the entire national interest of a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic society.

It's unfortunate that some chiefs stepped out of their traditional boundaries and spoilt it for the rest.
