|Back in Fiji but no climbing stairs|
The aging illegal Minister for Education returned to Fiji on Friday after a triple heart by-pass surgery in New Zealand.
His current office is located on the third floor of Senikau House, next to the Fiji Women's Crisis Centre Headquarters, and opposite Tanoa Plaza.
The building has no lift and the ailing Bole would have had to walk three floors up to reach his office.
After they were told about the by-pass surgery, the acting illegal Education Minister, Captain Viliame Naupoto, and the Education Permanent Secretary, Dr Brij Lal, decided that a new office had to be made for Bole on the ground floor.
It's likely that one of the off-shoot departments in the Education Ministry, which is on the ground floor, will have to be vacated.
The Public Service Commission is expected to foot the bill for the new office, but no work had begun as of this week.
Bole is also expected to stay home for a couple of days and return to the job as soon as the new office is ready.
According to a regime salary list acquired by Coupfourpointfive, the 77 year old earns at least $300,000 for the Education and the National Heritage, Culture and Arts portfolios.
