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.
