Is the cyclone a matter of mirth? Judging from these pics some in the regime hierarchy either don't know it's wrong to be seen to laughing it up when the nation has been devastated by a cyclone five category or don't care.
These are the official photographs MINFO is using to promote the helicopter assessments made yesterday of the damage.
Anyone following the regional coverage, especially that of New Zealand, would've thought it was serious time for Fiji, with reports citing the helicopter fly-overs as part of the official air and ground assessments.
Yet judging from these pics of Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum and Sharon Smith Johns, it was a fun jaunt or chance to play up for a glam Facebook photo.
Nadi and Suva have both been hard hit by the cyclone and some eight thousand people across Fiji had to spend the night in evacuation centres in the past two nights.
As with other floods, both New Zealand and Australia have stepped in to help, pledging several million dollars between them.
And as with the last flooding earlier in the year, no sign of RFMF despite a MINFO report that 530 soldiers are out helping with the clean up.
Inmates have however already been on the streets at work.
