Calls for a second Fiji First official to quit - just over a week after Prasad was forced to resign

Fiji First: one resignation already
One official resigned in the first week after failing to disclose a criminal past and a second has alienated people after she warned women to dress responsibly to avoid 'arousing the opposite sex.'

Frank Bainimarama's Fiji First party is caught up in another controversy, less than three weeks after its official launch and huge bravura over 40,000 supporters and naming of key officials.

Bainimarama's running mate, Minister for Women, Dr Jiko Luveni, has caused an outcry after being quoted in the Fiji Sun as saying young girls and women have a right to choose wear what they want to, but they need to be responsible.

“We women have rights but we would not want to get into trouble by exposing ourselves and arousing the opposite sex.

“As long as we are responsible we would be able to help ourselves because situations can get out of control if we are
KEPA: Working with vanua
among a group of guys in isolated areas.”




Luveni, Fiji First's president, has been accused of harking back to the dark ages and condoning rapists with the Fiji Womens Rights Movement urging people to complain to Bainimarama for Luveni to resign.

The stalwart is Bainimarama's second high ranking official to muck up - just over a week ago vice president, Bijai Prasad, was forced to resign after he was exposed as being convicted of theft as a servant in 1984.

Luveni insists "I have never, nor has the Bainimarama government ever said that victims of rape are to be blamed. Rape is a despicable act and we must all condemn it," but people are unlikely to forget her slip up.

In a statement the executive director of the Fiji Womens Rights Movement, Virisila Buadromo, says Luveni’s comments "shamed" and "further violated" victimised women instead of denouncing rapists.

SODELPA senior Party Member, Dr. Mere Samisoni, has also waded in saying such utterances from a government Minister and a woman at that, is absurd and she is in effect making excuses for the behavior of men.

The uproar over Luveni's comments show Fiji First has a fight on its hands and citizens are willing to challenge.  

The woman to watch in the September elections, Ro Teimumu Kepa, meanwhile says her party is 'going around to the chiefs of the various vanua seeking the permission and blessings for the people from their vanua to campaign under a SODELPA ticket.'

SODELPA has just visited Bau and is to visit Verata and Naitasiri next week. 

A party official says the vanua has been very cooperative and there has been overwhelming support with villagers already asking to see party nominees.


SODELPA is due to start campaigning by the end of next month following the launch of its manifesto and announcement of its final candidates.

Luveni is trying very hard to impress people but she failed miserably of basic understanding of UN instruments which is a test that she failed miserably.

People this NOT a kind of leader we are looking for.

Not good enough and go enroll yourself at FNU.

These are traitors of the kai Viti.

She has sold her soul to Khaihum's master Plan.

Fiji FIJI Futulaki Party does not have the decency to even create their own name. Fiji First belongs to another party.

What a shame.

Now you will taste your own medicine the people of Fiji will not vote for this murderous regime.
A Party that is full of lies, corruption and con artist.

A party that is anti Christian and Anti Indian but Pro Muslim.

Go SODELPA lets bury them at Lovonilase.

Calls for a third Fiji First candidate to resign. Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, as F1 General Secretary and Minister for Elections, is an obvious conflict of interest. He cannot possibly be relied upon to be impartial in administering the elections and therefore must resign as Minister of Elections. The elections do not meet minimal international standards under the current circumstances.

Simi said...

Calls for a fourth Fiji First candidate to resign. Frank Bainimarama pretends to be Fiji's Prime Minister. He also absurdly pretends that the Prime Minister is not a public official and is therefore excepted from meeting the same requirements imposed on other candidates. He claimed no member of the military would benefit personally from the coup, but now here he is. Like Khaiyum, he's committed innumerable acts of treason and should be arrested.

Jiko Leweni had a colourful and repulsive adulterous reputation when she was Mr Yasa’s wife.and working as a dentist. A well known Fijian dentist (now overseas, in Australia)used to have endless affairs with her…he is a friend of mine who often tells me about their affairs. She now wants to teach women how to behave the fiendish tart,,,she is not a good role model to anybody…just ask Mr Mikaeli Yasa the former husband

It is NOT always good to bring the past so that you can justify your stand.

Jiko Luveni iS A PRODUCT OF A SOCIETY that turns a blind eye on rape victims because she always maintain her high moral ground but she actually does not understand the universal knowledge relating to Human Rights.

She is to proud to acknowledge the Women's Group achievement but only interested in the finish product.

Just shows her lack of knowledge and will have to swallow her pride.

You will not be elected by the women of this country.

The statement of Luveni shows clearly where Khaiyum's Fiji First is going: Towards a muslim dictatorship where modern views and christian values are outlawed and persecuted. It is very sad that indigenous Fijians such as Luveni, the RFMF thugs and others are following Khaiyum's mantra to eradicate Fijian culture and tradition, steal Fijian land and humiliate our most popular church. But why on earth are people still supporting this sleaze bag who has stolen tens of millions from the people of Fiji? Why don't we stand up and defend our dignity our land and our tradition? Why do we tolerate that Khaiyum persecutes our leaders and kicks us in the teeth on a daily basis. Why don't we say enough is enough and take our country back? We do have the power, we do have the numbers. We just need a little bit of courage and a leader whois willing to take up the fight. Perhaps Ro Teimumu is this leader. We should rally behind her and send the muslim mob where they belong. We don't need Boko Haram, Al Shabab, Al Queda and the like in our beloved country.

The new police commissioner should commence his job by arresting all the ministers and the chief justice for treason and overrthrow of a democratic government.

Lock up these usurpers of power and move towards election with a clean slate of candidates.

Go for it new COMPOL, go for these treasonists, usurpers, rapists of democracy. Send them to court and to prison, no one is above the law, when one steals, one faces the music.
Come on COMPOL send your officers to get these treasonists to await trial in prison.they have enjoyed more than enough freedom at the expense of ordinary citizens.
Arrest them, Arrest them, arrest them!!!!!

18 prominent chiefs have shown their support to the Proposed Fiji First Party.

In a statement by the proposed leader of the proposed FijiFirst, Voreqe Bainimarama, he said apart from the more than 40 thousand signatures put forward for the registration application, there are many Fijians who continue to send in their names from all parts of Fiji.

Bainimarama said amongst these Fijians are some prominent chiefs whose names could not be included because the application with the Supervisor of Elections had already been lodged.

These chiefs include the Tui Vuda, Ratu Eparama Tavaiqia, the Tui Nawaka, Ratu Asaeli Naevo, Tui Sabeto Ratu Tevita Mataitoga, Tui Nadi Ratu Sailosi Dawai, the Acting Tui Tavua Ratu Salesi Baleimacuata, the Tui Navitilevu Ratu Meli Bolobolo, Tui Naviti Ratu Kitione Vuluma, Tui Vusu Ratu Siriako Matabogi, the Acting Ka Levu Ratu Kini Vosailagi, Tui Davutukia Ratu Emosi Buruavatu, the Taukei Naua Ratu Ponijese Lou, Tui Nasikawa Ratu Timoci Koilolo, the Tui Lawa Ratu Sevanaia Lalabalavu and Tui Vitogo Ratu Viliame Sovasova.

Fijivillage spoke to the Taukei Naua, Ratu Ponijiese Lou and the Acting Tui Tavua Ratu Salesi Baleimacuata.

Both said that they maintain their stand and give their full support to the leadership of the proposed party.

Ratu Ponijiese Lou said that he was the first person to sign up while Ratu Salesi Baleimacuata said the vanua of Tavualevu has agreed to back Voreqe Bainimarama.

Quick guide: Indian election

Scientists at a US university say they have developed a technique to hack into Indian electronic voting machines.

After connecting a home-made device to a machine, University of Michigan researchers were able to change results by sending text messages from a mobile.

Indian election officials say their machines are foolproof, and that it would be very difficult even to get hold of a machine to tamper with it.

India uses about 1.4m electronic voting machines in each general election.

'Dishonest totals'

A video posted on the internet by the researchers at the University of Michigan purportedly shows them connecting a home-made electronic device to one of the voting machines used in India.

Professor J Alex Halderman, who led the project, said the device allowed them to change the results on the machine by sending it messages from a mobile phone.

"We made an imitation display board that looks almost exactly like the real display in the machines," he told the BBC. "But underneath some of the components of the board, we hide a microprocessor and a Bluetooth radio."

"Our lookalike display board intercepts the vote totals that the machine is trying to display and replaces them with dishonest totals - basically whatever the bad guy wants to show up at the end of the election."

In addition, they added a small microprocessor which they say can change the votes stored in the machine between the election and the vote-counting session.

India's electronic voting machines are considered to be among the most tamperproof in the world.

There is no software to manipulate - records of candidates and votes cast are stored on purpose-built computer chips.

Paper and wax seals

India's Deputy Election Commissioner, Alok Shukla, said even getting hold of machines to tamper with would be very difficult.

"It is not just the machine, but the overall administrative safeguards which we use that make it absolutely impossible for anybody to open the machine," he told the BBC.

"Before the elections take place, the machine is set in the presence of the candidates and their representatives. These people are allowed to put their seal on the machine, and nobody can open the machine without breaking the seals."

The researchers said the paper and wax seals could be easily faked.

However, for their system to have any impact they would need to install their microchips on many voting machines, no easy task when 1,368,430 were used in the last general election in 2009

I never thought that there would come this day when we Fijians come to loggerheads over the issue of how we dress up our daughters, sisters, mothers and so on. This USED to be a country where decency was paramount, where moral values head a place in society and respect was the word of the day. In so saying, every female out there has a right to choose what they intend to wear or how they would like to present themselves in public. They also deserve to be equally responsible for the consequences if they happen to end up in the wrong neighbourhood. The fact is that this is a cruel and merciless world that you live in, my dear ones. My piece of advice is that you choose carefully where you are going, whether what you are wearing suits the occasion, do you REALLY prefer being in the company of drunkards dressed that way...etc etc. There is nothing anybody can do to stop you from wearing what you want. Just be responsible please (and this should apply to men as well).

Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, has defended writing a letter of support for a man convicted of rape in New Zealand.

He has also questioned whether the conviction was “erroneous” given that the man he wrote in support of, Fatu Seti, could not speak “proper” English.

“There are some areas that the judges may not understand,” said the Prime Minister.

“So from what I see, there is a big possibility that a decision might be erroneous and that is why I wrote suggesting to deport him if found guilty.”

Tuilaepa also suggested that the truth does not always win during Court cases.

“In these arguments, if you are good at lying, you can get away with it.”

Mr. Seti fled New Zealand eight years ago when he was accused of raping a 19-year-old woman from Waiheke Island.

Extradited to face trial, he was sentenced by the Auckland District Court earlier this month to four years and seven months in prison.

The sentence was later increased to nearly six years.

Last week, Opposition leader, Palusalue Fa’apo II, attacked the letter of support from Tuilaepa.

He said it was “disgraceful” and inappropriate.

Palusalue said that no other country would see its leader writing letters of support for a sex offender.

He also criticized the Speaker, Laaulialemalietoa Leuatea Polataivao, and an unnamed police chief for writing character references for Mr. Seti.

But Tuilaepa was unrepentant.

In response, he turned to the Bible for justification. He said that Gospel teachings are to help anyone, even prisoners.

But whether a man is convicted of rape or murder, it is all the same, said Tuilaepa.

“My letter to the judges suggested that if they find him guilty, they can deport him back to Samoa,” he said “This is a common thing in New Zealand and America, that if they find a Samoan guilty they can deport them back to their country.” Tuilaepa suggested that the Opposition criticism represents a failure to live by the Gospel.

“I’m saddened by Palusalue because he is a deacon for his parish.”

He again referred to the Bible.

“One of the prisoners that was crucified with Jesus, Jesus told him that today we will be together. So if we follow what Palusalue says, then he’s saying that Jesus should say go to hell.

“This is not what we’re being taught…if the prisoner needs help, help him.” Tuilaepa also pointed out that Mr. Seti’s talent as a fire dancer has helped Samoa in terms of attracting tourists.

@ Poate Seniloli
Rape is an ugly word for an ugly action — one that too many women have been forced to grapple with.One of the phrases most commonly associated with rape culture is “victim-blaming.” Those guilty of victim-blaming like Luveni argue women need to prevent rape because men have animalistic urges they can’t be held responsible for.
Requiring women to protect themselves from men excuses men’s actions. If a woman gets raped and the response from everyone — family, friends, the media, strangers — is, “You should have been protecting yourself,” there is a problem.
The obvious question that comes to mind is: How do we stop rape from happening?
Like it or not, we live in a society pervaded by rape culture, despite the crime’s horrible nature. Rape culture is attitudes and practices that “normalize, excuse, tolerate, and even condone rape,”
The average gut reaction to someone saying your culture excuses or condones rape might be to push back and reject the notion. If you look close enough, you can see that though people might have good intentions, our supposed ideals about women, men and rape have contributed to a warped sense of who is to blame.
There are some sexual assault “risk reducers” — things women can do before going out at night as precautionary measures against being raped. but even if a woman does all the things that will protect them from assault, a woman could still be raped by a man who wants sex and won’t take no for an answer. Any “protective” measures a woman could take — dressing conservatively, avoiding alcohol, walking in well-lit areas, learning self-defense, carrying a weapon, etc. — don’t guarantee safety.
You wouldn’t ask someone who got robbed on the way home from work what he or she was wearing. You wouldn’t wonder if maybe the person had been “asking for it.” Just like robbery, rape is a crime in which one person exerts power over another. Yet rape victims constantly get asked victim-blaming questions, as though if they had not done something wrong, they wouldn’t be in this situation.
This is a fallacy. The only way to stop sexual assault is to make rapists stop raping. We can’t let misguided notions to set us back to once again claiming victims especially women are responsible for something out of their control.

Past elections taught us that a divided Fijian vote means FLP or NFP wins.

It seems to me that SODELPA has strong support in the central division around Tailevu, Rewa, and Naitasiri but has diluted support in the Western Division.

If the support by western chiefs for Fiji First is anything to go by, it looks like FFP will have strong support in the West where there are more seats compared to the eastern division. VB could very well win this election in the West and maybe pick up enough seats in the central division where the FLP vote and youth vote could go his way after Chaudhry's conviction.

Then again Fijian voters are a fickle bunch so perhaps the West is not really in the bag for FFP. Let's have a few months of SODELPA campaign events in the West and let's see whether FFP support there is strong.

The pieces in this puzzle are now slowly falling into place.

Sodelpa says Fiji regime incurs bumper bill for taxpayer
Updated 5 minutes ago

Tweet on TwitterShare on Facebook

Fiji’s Sodelpa Party says it is a big concern that Fiji taxpayers will bear the cost of Monday’s bumper edition of the Fiji Sun.

The five hundred plus page paper contained the names, addresses and signatures of more than 40 thousand supporters of the regime-backed Fiji First Party which is applying for registration.

The rules require parties to have at least five thousand signed up members, and a member list is among the party details which need to be published in the media.

Sodelpa’s General Secretary, Pio Tabaiwalu, says when his party registered it pared down its list of supporters in order to keep publication costs down for the government.

“Why go overboard? It’s really going to cost taxpayers in the vicinity of over $200,000 to pay for the advertisement in the daily and that is of real concern to us. And paid to a newspaper that in fact is a propaganda mouthpiece of this regime and that’s another issue.”

Jiko Leweni had a colourful and repulsive adulterous reputation when she was Mr Yasa’s wife.and working as a dentist. A well known Fijian dentist (now overseas, in Australia)used to have endless affairs with her…he is a friend of mine who often tells me about their affairs. She now wants to teach women how to behave the fiendish tart,,,she is not a good role model to anybody…just ask Mr Mikaeli Yasa the former husband

Quit as a Chief said...

18 Prominent Fijian chiefs supporting Fiji First is a joke. Does Frank not know that we Fijians, wrote the book on how to liumuri, "age piche." They are saying yes now because you providing free, houses, education, new schools, bridges, roads, water, electricity, boats, sewing machines and more. More than they ever seen in their lives. However, they have not forgotten the sons and daughters from their provinces that your unjust decrees caused so much suffering, their chiefs who were humiliated and fathers and relatives who were terminated of their employment when you took power. They will not forget but will have their revenge at the ballot box, come 17 September. Then you will truly know what the chiefs mean by support i.e. supporting the other parties to oust you from power. Enjoy your stay at Naboro with your master, Khaiyum!

Your hero is destined to Naboro for treason.

A straight Shooter is only reserved for people with integrity NOT for a person who advised Bai to destroy or hurt the indigenous people of this country.

Your hero has made a lot of enemies and this SHALL never be forgotten by the First people of this nation.

He can run but he can not hide any more ...its like a time bomb.

A few weeks ago in one day the Fiji Times reported 3 rapes in Fiji.

One was a 65 year old lady, as payment for lawn mowing by her husband
One was a 15 year old
and the other was a 10 year old.

So according to this dumb arsehole Jiko Luveni these women or these young girls asked for it.

Jiko Luveni is a dickhead and is typical of the moronic type of individuals that support Bainimarama.

I THINK ALL WOMEN IN FIJI SHOULD NOT VOTE FOR THE FIJI FIRST PARTY.

BAINIMARAMA'S PARTY SHOULD BE CALLED ""FIJI'S FARKED UP PARTY"".
because its full of farked up people with farked up logic.

Eighteen chiefs support the Paramount Thief! Sounds rather impressive, until one pauses to consider the large number of chiefs in Fiji. Why, even Bainimarama now seems to see himself as Fiji's highest chief, a vanity the ni-Vanuatu played to when they named him "Chief Warwar". Thousand Sands Casinos exploited it too when they gave him an American indian headdress. In the meanwhile, the real chief in New York was repudiating the whole deal, and so now ask yourself where is the casino deal today?

Now ask yourself whether these chiefs really endorsed Bainimarama or just told him in general terms that they support some of his programmes.

Then ask yourself why it is that Bainimarama is making this statement and not the chiefs themselves.

Then ask how many of these "chiefs" are not real chiefs at all but only claimants to disputed chiefly titles, titles this regime has been attempting to usurp in the same way that the unelected government in China attempts to control the Tibetans' choice of the Panchen Lama.

Eighteen "chiefs" -- that's all they came with? Pathetic! There are probably more Fijian "chiefs" than that now in assisted living in a single neighbourhood of Sacramento, California!

Only fools believing in Bai Khai said...

Registered Voter @ 10.31pm The illegal government is successful because it has imposed a military dictatorship on the people of Fiji and is using our hard earned taxpayers money to manufacture propaganda to make itself look good. Anyone with guns and resources behind it would of course 'succeed'. Everything at Bainimarama's disposal he has acquired by force, not with the people's support.

I am disgusted, I want to throw up when I see my beautiful country going to the dogs. Why can't we have a tiny bit of dignity, why can't we defend our tradition and culture that has bound us together for hundreds of years. Why can't we shout no to Khaiyum's plan to let the sun set on everything we have treasured for a very long time? Stand up people before it is too late.

Ironic, indeed, and more than a little pathetic. He fears the chiefs, loathes the chiefs, but wants to be a chief -- even THE chief. But to borrow from Shaista Shameem, he has no sense of "noblesse oblige". He's a crude ruffian. Dress him up in uniforms, medals and titles all you want -- but you might as well be putting lipstick on a pig.

I suppose if we take the opposing views to Dr Jiko, then we should also not worry about our wallet hanging out of our pockets when we walk past suspicious looking people in a dark alley, or we should also not bother to lock out houses as we go to sleep at night because hey according to your way of thinking taking precautions in a vulnerable situation is not required, and anyone who warns you against taking these precautions is really blaming the victim and how dare that be done, that is barbarous thinking of old.
The level of debate sometimes defies logic. I guess when cheap political points are on offer, everyone including those vulnerable to rape are fair game.

Aman Ravindra Singh had to resign from USP because he became the GS of PDP and USP policies dont allow its staff to be on payroll and hold political party positions. He used his position in USP to recruit students to support PDP. Everyone knows in PDP how much backstabbing he did to reputable members of the party to climb to the position of GS. This greedy and ambitious man spilled blood in PDP for his own gain. Ask anyone in PDP how this man conspired to rise to the position. No ethics and no shame.

The 'NABORO FIRST PARTY' should be the name of VB's party, because it should head to Naboro first for a clean-up campaign, before thinking of coming back to lead the government.

No surprise that Luveni just condoned rape that she's received a huge tongue lashing from feminist and women's rights groups, apart from joining the Fiji Flunk Party.

She obviously knew better but then just delivered the wrong words in regards to rape (unless Fiji Stunk is looking for publicity as usual)

Defeat for frankie is sure automatic transfer to Naboro where he can join Speight and the rest of the other goons there who may need some company at least.

Women go topless in Yap, and yet rape is virtually nonexistent there.

Women are covered head to toe with burkhas in Muslim countries, lest the sight of a well-turned ankle arouse the Muslim men.

The problem isn't the dress; it's the culture.

It's not the culture in Fiji, it's just that they are slowly advancing from raping children to adults now but adults talk and they are starting to get found out.
