Fiji military to 'mould' students through cadet training

Students will learn from a young age what it is like to be a soldier in the army.

It's been announced that Cadet training to be conducted by the Fiji Military Forces will soon be introduced to all schools in Fiji.

The Minister of Youth and Sports Laisenia Tuitubou says Cadet training 'will ensure that our youth are imparted with values required to address social issues'.

Tuitubou says this form of discipline is being introduced 'because of the change in attitude among many young people today'. 


This announcement brings so many concerns and questions with it. 

Firstly, we all know the reputation of the Fiji Military Forces and how they 'disciplined' citizens and helped their commander take over the country in a coup in 2006.

There are so many cases of innocent people being intimidated, beaten, tortured and some dying at the hands of these soldiers.

And now these men are to become role models for our children and teach them how to have good characters and be good citizens?

This is another initiative being pushed down the throats of Fiji, just like changing the Fiji flag.

But wait, we shouldn’t be surprised. 


After all this is a military regime in power under the guise of democracy and it proves itself to be the case time and time again.

Good as long as training is conducted by officers from abroad, not from here. We don't want cowards to train our children. Why is it so important to have cadet training in all schools? The school needs extra-curricular program to elevate its students and cadet is a waste and distraction..

Not a good or brilliant idea in the first place?Sure why try something else when there is a job & power been handed over to you on
a silver platter? Lots of young girls will be raped and they can't
say anything for fear of reprisal or just can't take it like a trooper?

When we are all called 'Fijian', why doe the Indian population still make it a practise to call the itaukei people, 'Ja'atii' on national TV. It is both discriminatory and offensive.Yesterday's the opening of Vanua Levu road by the PM, the Fiji TV hindustani news presenter uttered this very derogatory term and has the metaphorical implications of a 'second class/ poor/uneducated/worthless race', literally.One also wonders, when we are all called Fijians, why hasn't the Indians race embraced Fijian culture and language.The rift is still a mile away.Indians haven't the faintest idea of even, correctly pronouncing Fijian names, for instance, Gau Island, is always pronounced 'Qau', and it's very irritating to Fijian-speaking listeners.The leaders of government must ensure that this denigrating tern, Ja'atii, be excluded from Fiji Hindustani vocabulary,especially on our vocal media.If we are all Fijians then, all care should be taken with our relationships with each other.

Happy to hear this announcement. Introducing cadet training program is a good thought and it can make changes in the attitude of youngsters. Recently, best custom essay writing service released some good stories that address some relevant social issues. I recommend this for those who are going for this cadet training.
