Mick Beddoes resigns from SODELPA saying party in trouble

Mick Beddoes has resigned from the Opposition Office saying his decision is personal but revealed the party was in trouble and needed a shakeup.

His statement below:

I am grateful to the Opposition Leader for her gracious remarks in announcing my decision to resign from my position effective December 31st 2015.

My decision has been in the pipe line for some time, but was deferred because of the Gaunavinaka Sham and the need to wait for the outcome of the Disciplinary Committee’s determination, which has happened and they have exonerated the Leader, myself and others of any wrong doing.

There is a need for me to refocus my attention on some personal matters in order to bring them to a successful conclusion and it does require my personal involvement. In addition I have been blessed with the arrival of my 2nd grandson 6 weeks ago so I want to be around both my grandsons and children and to lend them support and spend some quality time with them. I will be 65 next year.

It has been a challenging and rewarding 14 months here at the Opposition Chambers and I am grateful to Ro Teimumu Kepa for giving me the opportunity to be of serve to her and the members, the majority of whom I know appreciated my efforts and I am grateful for their calls and well wishes. I am also grateful to the staff who have performed admirably under often very difficult and frustration circumstances.

I am confident that the team we have in place will continue to do a sterling job for the Leader of the Opposition and the party and I have assured the Marama of my full support for her and the staff, the only difference being I will be located in the West and not at Parliament.

SODELPA our party is in trouble and it is in need of some serious dosage of moderate and level headed members who support multiracial policies, party unity and solidarity. I plan to become a very active member of SODELPA in Nadi and the West and I will take the time to travel all around giving members the facts of what is going on so they can be properly informed and can take corrective action to protect the party by voting in the right people.

  4. QORVIS is an EVIL organisation. Their aim would be to destroy SODELPA.
    The aim of QORVIS is to control the population of Fiji; And SODELPA is standing in their way. QORVIS wants to control Fijians, Indians and Others in Fiji. It is a very EVIL organisation.
    For those who were happy to get rid of the Chiefs, What they didnt realise is that QORVIS has brought in a more EVIL form of control via TIN numbers and The Fiji Army etc.
    Through the TIN number they control your FNPF, your Bank Account , what you eat, what you drink etc etc etc.
    But too many people in Fiji are too farking dumb to see it.; including Indians.
    QORVIS controls Bainimarama.
    They control the Army.
    Tikoitoga, Qiliho, Naupoto, Langman are all the same. Their mouth is clamped shut; controlled by QORVIS.
    How ? via money of course.
    I pay you , you keep your mouth shut.
    I send you for a post overseas, so you keep your mouth shut.
    If you agitate then we will do to you what happened to Julie Alexander.
    Thats why Qiliho is LAMU. His Fijian army is useless. It has now become a Bainimarama Army ( not Fiji Army) and by proxy they have become QORVIS' Army.

    Interesting that Wadan Narsey has also found out that INDIAN MOUTHS ARE ALSO CLAMPED SHUT...including academics in Fiji.

    SO BASICALLY FIJIANS AND INDIANS HAVE NOW BECOME SLAVES OF AMERICANS IN THEIR OWN LAND.
    Hahahahahahahahahahaha.

    Bainimarama is controlled by QORVIS.
    The people agitating in SODELPA, bringing false charges against Temumu and Beddoes were influenced by QORVIS.
    Beddoes should sue this people for causing him unnecessary pain and anguish.

    Why do you think they changed the Education policy?
    If you are smart you can figure out the answer.
    HINT: Its got nothing to do with improving the education of Fijians.
    This is a very deliberate act by QORVIS.

    QORVIS is too smart for most people. The only answer is Jesus. Jesus will give you the wisdom to fight them. ( if you ask Him).

  7. There is to many bosses in sodelpa. There is the president, the leader of the party and leader of the opposition. No clear authority hence the confusion which will cost them big in the next election. The people have spoken in the last election and has given Ro Teimumu the highest vote in the sodelpa party. With her popularity enabled some of these mischief makers to enter parliament. The next election is just over two years away. Don't sweat the small stuff...re focus your goals and plans. Arm your self for the next parliament sitting and show why you are the opposition with good debates and probing questions......good luck.

  8. "A house divided by itself will surely fall!"

    SODELPA will not be able to convince people that they can form a good government if there is no unity in the party. FF may be a party of traitors, murders and thieves, but the parliament members are so well controlled by fear and 30 pieces of silver that they continue to vote together on issues.

    Only God through his son Jesus will be able to help Fiji become the land of peace and love again.

    I heard that since Bainimarama committed treason and took over the government in 2006 that there are now more poor people in Fiji than when Qarase was running the government.
    I heard poverty increased from 25% to now 60%.
    Also now increased murder ; increased child molestation; increased rape.
    A small child would say then that Fiji was better under Qarase's government compared to Bainimarama's government.
    Would you agree with that child's conclusion or are you dumber than a child?

  19. @Anonymous 12:53 AM

    So you 'heard' that poverty was less when a previous government was in power.

    How would a small child have known things were better under the Qarase's government?

    Fact, they would have not known.

    A small child then would not have known how things would be in the future !

    A a small child now would not have had a clue what things were like years ago !

    10:35 AM is right.

    But also consider years ago the priorities with money were not alcohol, drugs, partying, phones and TVs like they are now for so many that also want to plead poverty and whine about the cost of exercise books.

  22. @2:40PM Its obvious that your brain is worse than a small child's brain.
    Typical Fiji First Idiot.
    A small child would have worked out that :
    Poverty under Qarase was 25%
    Poverty under Bainimarama is 60%.
    Therefore small child brain will say that 60% poverty worse than 25% poverty; Therefore Qarase better than Bainimarama.

    Arrrreh Yarrr, you Fiji First people are so dumb,,,,what the fark was the long winded explanation about small child blah blah blah.
    You Fiji First are farking Dumb.
    Bainimarama say something, you say "Yes Sir Yes Sir Yes Sïr..."
    That shows how dumb you Bainimarama supporters are.

    BAINIMARAMA FARTS, you Fiji First people say "YES SIR YES SIR YES SIR..."

  23. We, the people of Fiji first embraced genuine parliamentary democracy and have set a new constitutional course towards a brighter future for every Fijian. It has marked the culmination of our Government’s efforts to put in place changes that have yield long term benefits for Fiji and all Fijians (That is something many of these sodelpa idiots have a grudge about). We have a new Constitution to guide us, one that will allow Fiji to prosper as a united nation. However sodelpa the way they are is still harping and howling like a bitch trying to drag us back to the childish ways of politics that did no good for anyone.

    These bastards hate the fact that for the first time, We Fijians have a Constitution that protects a wide range of civil, political and socio-economic rights. We the people, have a Constitution that demands accountability and transparency from Government officials, which builds strong institutions, and enshrines principles that are at the heart of all the world’s great liberal democracies. For the first time, our nation has a Constitution that establishes a common and equal citizenry, without denying anyone’s individuality or culture. We have made government services more readily available to more people than ever before. We have reformed social welfare to give more help to the neediest while creating opportunities for them. We have established partnerships with the private sector and are reforming state owned enterprises. We have revitalised the sugar industry, created a sustainable mahogany industry, and made our ports efficient. We have embarked on an ambitious program to correct the deplorable condition of our roads. We have reformed the civil service to make it more professional, accountable, and results-oriented.

    This year’s 2015 Budget again demonstrates consistency and continuity in policies. Sodelpa had nothing to offer but to be schooled on it; the people knew that Sodelpa didn’t know what they were doing but simply pulling things out of their ass. Our government has build on much work that previous government failed to do, and they have fund new initiatives that offer practical solutions to old problems, and others that are the first steps in our Government’s drive to fulfill the promises made in the new Constitution rights, for example, to education and health care, water, a clean environment and access to the law. We are making changes and investments that we have long needed in education, health and infrastructure. Our government is correcting some injustices that have existed for a long time, something previous political parties who held power failed to do.
    Fiji is now a fairer, more just and compassionate society, and that we have accelerated our efforts to alleviate poverty, thanks to a rapidly strengthening economy.

    We the people of Fiji are proud to assure you sodelpa idiots, that today our democracy is working, our economy is growing and we are gradually lifting more people out of poverty every day. It is not an experiment, it is a very real and revolutionary change in the way we Fijians govern ourselves and treat one another.

    Now can all the SODELPA IDIOTS TAKE MICKY MOUSE STATEMENT SERIOUSLY OR ARE THEY THAT DUMB TO CARRY ON THE SAME STRATEGIES THEY HAVE IN PLACE BECAUSE THATS RIGHT SODELPA IS FUCKED!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAH

    Hey arsehole have you read what you just wrote.
    I mean did it make any farking sense to you.
    HELLO!
    Hey arsehole. Former Police Commissioner Groenwold said he could not perform his duties because of CONSTANT INTERFERENCE BY THE FIJI ARMY"....

    So there you go arsehole Government Officials continuously interfering with the Police in their pursuit of Justice.
    Even the DIKHEAD PRIME MINISTER HIMSELF intrerfered with the Police work against the soldiers.
    WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SOLDIERS THAT SODOMISED A MAN WITH WOODEN STICKS UNTIL THE MAN DIED....and your Leader Bainimaram FREED them.

    And when the Judge gave their sentence, Prime Minister Bainimarama interfered and took these people out of jail.
    SO THERE YOU GO
    YOU AND YOUR FARKING BULLSHIT TALK ABOUT A FAIR CONSTITUTION, GO FARK YOURSELF.

    You Fiji First people are farking brainless.
    Did you even stop to think about what you wrote dikhead?

  26. @KNR

    Oh oh what’s going on here? Another sodelpa cry baby. Let us remind you that the former police commissioner decided to submit a written notification for an early release from his contractual appointment as the Commissioner of the Fiji Police Force. He was not intimidated nor received any death threats to step down; He resigned due to personal family reasons. However he decided to express his own personal opinion about not being satisfied with the way that military interfering in policing and more things that couldn’t be put in one sentence. That is clear everybody knows this but he needs to understand that his employers are not concerned about his own self interests. He should be more concern in fulfilling his employer’s objectives and goals.
    Now I'm not sure what he is referring to with military interfering with policing because the fact is Military and Police both have always worked together. The two institutions had been working together to ensure the security and safety of Fiji and this is an area of concern. The Fiji Police Force can never work in isolation and will need the RFMF to address issues; therefore the two institutions are interdependent. It is the same as 1st world countries like the US and Canada, where both law enforcement and the armed forces share intelligence such as drug raids, bomb threats, terrorism, cyber crime, human trafficking etc etc. It is our ultimate goal and it is important for the police, the RFMF and the Fiji Corrections Service to complement each other to ensure a safe and secure Fiji.

    Now some of you are crying about some of our officers in the handling of past cases and why those who have been charged walked free or given a lesser sentence. Let us remind you that any offences committed by military or police between 2006 and the first seat of parliament last year can qualify for immunity. Some of these offences are within the remit of immunity. But any sexual offence is outside of immunity. That is the reason why the DPP (Director of Public Prosecution) has decided to charge these people many of you cry baby’s speak of, for sexual assault And not for manslaughter. It is evident that you sodelpa have not read the constitution and continue to spread lies by spinning and deceiving.

  27. Sodelpa is exercising proper party democracy in an undemocratic government system.Lets get real,to have Fiji as a single constituent is a farce that takes power of choices away from the masses into that of a dictatorship.

    The last election was a farce...why...?? It was a ticket setup by the treasonous Bainimarama traitors in an attempt to legitimise their illegal rule.Lets not forget or stray away from the fact that an illegal regime had total control of the elections and how the current non consensus constitution was put in place. The proof of its existence is a society still chained to the misguided coup of 2006.The Bainimarama constitution is rotten to the core because a multitude of heinous crimes are being given so called immunity by so called constitutional law.What a legal & judicial joke..!!

    The party politics within Sodelpa is healthy for party democracy where the party Caucus has the ability to exercise their rights in how Sodelpa operates.Fiji First and current government officials are too scared to voice their opposition to PM Khaiyum and his sidekick Voreqe. The choice anyone has in Fiji concerning criticism leveled against the current regime is face the consequences (harassment, punishment and detention) or flee the country.

    Fiji First supporters must realise that their fellow Fijians are being imprisoned for lesser crimes than the Bainimarama constitution is trying to hide.The only way to experience true freedom and equality is to vote the current regime out of office and vote in a party that is willing to clean up the rot that is restricting Fiji of real progress.

    So you are saying we can do a Coup in 2016 and wipe out the whole Bainimarama Clan and claim IMMUNITY via a new Constitution.
    I like your idea.

    I think we should do that.
    We should kill off Bainimarama. Kill his wife , his children and all his grandchildren. Kill all the bastards off and then claim IMMUNITY.
    Thats a very good farking idea.

    Thats what he did.
    And we should do it to him.

  33. December 29th marks the 125th anniversary of when U.S. soldiers surrounded a band of Indians at Wounded Knee creek, seized their weapons and slaughtered at least 150—many of them women and children.

    The 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre isn’t given much attention in history books, but it’s an uglier part of our country’s past that arguably contradicted the second amendment—giving citizens the rights to bear arms— violated human rights while designating 20 soldiers heroes by awarding them with the Army’s Medal of Honor.

    The massacre was the result of the U.S. government’s desire to seize land and move indigenous people from their homelands. This bubbled to the surface in 1890 as Indians at the Lakota Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota took part in the Ghost Dance Spiritual Movement—a practice to reject the ways of the white man with the belief that God would create the world anew.

    On Dec. 29 the U.S. Army’s 7th Cavalry surrounded a band of ghost dancers near Wounded Knee Creek and Col. James W. Forsyth demanded they surrender their weapons and told them they’d be relocated to another camp.

    A fight between a soldier and a deaf Indian named Black Coyote resulted in a shot being fired—though it remains unclear who fired the weapon first. U.S. Soldiers began shooting at the unarmed group and managed to kill as many as 300 Indians—many of them women and children. The soldiers were aided by cannon rounds from Hotchkiss guns.

    Prior to the attack, women and men had been separated. Despite this, the soldiers took no effort to spare their lives. As women began running, the soldiers hunted them down.

    Eye-witness accounts were recorded in by the 1891 Commissioner of Indian Affairs and gave a chilling synopsis of the ways women and their children died at the hands of the soldiers:


    “Right near the flag of truce a mother was shot down with her infant; the child not knowing that its mother was dead was still nursing, and that especially was a very sad sight. The women as they were fleeing with their babes were killed together, shot right through, and the women who were very heavy with child were also killed.”

    The account continues on, stating that small boys who had emerged from hiding thinking it was safe were also butchered by soldiers.

    A woman who survived lost her daughter and baby boy. According to her account, one shot passed through the baby’s body and hit her elbow, causing him to drop to the ground. She was also hit twice in the back.

    Several days later, government authorities dug a mass grave for 146 bodies of children, women and men. They stripped the bodies naked and piled them on top of each other in the frozen ground.

    woundedknee2
    The mass grave at Wounded Knee.

    The U.S. Army suffered 25 causalities in the fight and 20 members were awarded the Army’s Medal of Honor—it’s highest commendation. More soldiers received the Medal of Honor in Wounded Knee than the 64,000 South Dakotans who fought for four years of World War II. According to author David Grua, the US government considered Wounded Knee the final chapter of a “race war” between whites and Native Americans.







    In the years after 1890, the U.S. Army made Wounded Knee a central event in American public memory, awarding 20 Medals of Honor to the Seventh Cavalry and erecting a monument to the soldiers killed in the engagement. Wounded Knee was heralded as the final victory in the 400 year “race war” between civilization and savagery, the event that laid the foundation for the American nation’s subsequent prosperity.

    Native American activists have long called for the medals to be withdrawn and in 2001 the National Congress of American Indians passed two resolutions condemning the awards. Despite years of petitions, Congress has failed to rescind the medals. Today, the Lakota tribe continues to fight to have their perspective of events included in the US Government’s “official memory” of the massacre, as well as seek reparations for the descendants of Wounded Knee victims.

    Acting Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho confirmed they had involved their overseas counterparts to help investigations.

  42. (For those who may have missed this good news)

    Fiji is second happiest Country in the World in 2015

    FIJI has again polled highly on the Global Happiness Barometer, beating 66 other countries to be listed as the second happiest country in the world for 2015.

    The survey was conducted by the Worldwide Independent Network of Market Research (WIN) and took into account the views and beliefs of 66,040 people from 68 countries across the globe, including Fiji and Papua New Guinea.

    Eighty-six per cent of Fijians said they were happy while just 4 per cent said they were unhappy giving the country a Net Happiness rating of 82 per cent.

    Colombia was the happiest country in the world with a Net Happiness rating of 85 per cent.

    Fiji also looked positive in the Economic Optimism Index and the Hope Index appearing in the top 10 for both.

    According to the results in the Hope Index for Fiji, 70 per cent of Fijians think 2016 will be better than 2015, 9 per cent think it will be worse, 16 per cent say it will be the same while 5 per cent are unsure.

    In terms of economic optimism 52 per cent think 2016 will be a year of economic prosperity, 13 per cent think it will be a year of economic difficulty and 31 per cent say it will be unchanged (the same as 2015) while 4 per cent are unsure.

    The survey was conducted by WIN's member in the region Tebutt Reasearch and principal Caz Tebbutt said the reults were positive for Fiji.

    "Fiji is a consistent performer on the happiness index, and when you combine this with the results on the hope index and the economic optimism index, it would be fair to say that confidence is strong looking to 2016," she said.

    President of WIN Jean-Marc Leger said though 2015 had been a tumultuous year for many across the globe, the world remained largely a happy place.

    "Forty five per cent of the world is optimistic regarding the economic outlook for 2016, up by 3 per cent compared to last year," he said.

    In each country a representative sample of about 1000 men and women over the age of 18 were interviewed either face to face, via telephone or online.

    The field work was conducted during September 2015-December 2015 and Fiji's field work was completed in November 2015.

    Fiji was ranked as the happiest country in the world last year.

  44. uh...But am not sure if big Mick and others in the SODELPA camp were interviewed in this particular survey?

    Not that all FFP MPs are all happy either ..

    No doubt thought that probably all my NFP MPs were all interviewed and gloriously happy in their plan to win more seats in the next National elections.

    Jokes aside...a blessed 2016 to all my cyber mates in this highly esteemed column, and of course the C4.5 Editorial and families.

    May the Good Lord bless all of you richly in 2016 and beyond ...what matters is that He knows all your names, where you respectively live and IP addresses.... and God loves you same as He loves me..

  45. Ro Teimumu calls on Fijians to engage in push for change, justice

    By NASIK SWAMI
    Thursday, December 31, 2015


    Update: 10:31AM WITH a few hours remaining to welcome the New Year, Opposition leader Ro Teimumu Kepa has called on every Fijian to make a New Year's resolution to engage in the push for change, truth and justice for Fiji.

    "Let us come together so that the just, fair, transparent and accountable governance we seek and the freedom to which we are entitled can once again, become the reality," Ro Teimumu said in her New Year's message.

    She has called on everyone to pause for a moment to reflect on the year that was and examine the journey so far on Fiji's return to parliamentary democracy.

  46. The decision on Fiji’s new flag has again been put off by the Fijian Government for another two months after the process was delayed by Fijian Prime Minister, Frank Bainimarama, by six months in June. It is now expected at the end of February next year.

    This has come about since the government has received new submissions after it released 23 designs earlier this year, but is still seeking more.

    Five designs will be chosen in March through the Prime Minister’s office then the public will have three months to select one.

    The new flag is expected to be announced on 1st July which will be raised on the country’s Constitution Day on September 7th.

    This plan to change the country’s flag was first floated in February, which faced wide spread opposition in which Mr Bainimarama planned it to be raised on the country’s 45th anniversary last October.

    ---
    So the flag committee has been disbanded? I suspect that's because someone in the committee spoke to foreign media about Khaiyum's interference in the process... Now there is no more risk of interference eh? it means that Bainimarama will be able to design HIS OWN flags and we will have to pick one... :( eh...

    Unless they do like in New Zealand and pick 5 flags from the PUBLIC (that is 5 flags made by FIJIANS with their NAMES) it will only be another big farce... would be good if we were living in a democracy and media would publish some designs so that we can see what's really happening behind the scene!!!

    Anyway... may Fiji end up with a nice & cool flag that all other nations will be jealous of. Happy 2016 to all (except to those who swear all the time)!

  47. Debate over a new national flag and a threat to poison baby formula with 1080 were the country's two toughest PR challenges for the year, according to a new ranking released today by BlacklandPR.

    The company rated the flag debate as the toughest PR challenge because it combined the highest public profile with the strongest emotional reaction, impact, and complexity.

  48. So what's going to be the toughest PR challenge for 2016?

    Dealing with the problem of domestic violence in Fiji and it's main causes.

  49. The aim of the PR Exercises is to CONTINUOUSLY DISTRACT THE MASSES while these CORRUPT bastards LEADERS like Bainimarama , Kaiyum and QORVIS go about their EVIL ACTIVITIES without the public noticing it..

    A lot of stuff - like e-ticketing; Free Education; Free Bus fares; Changing the education policy; Climate Change Discussion; Flag Discussion etc etc etc WERE ALL A DISTRACTION.
    These were but to DISTRACT THE MASSES while these arseholes carry out their agenda.

    I remember that for the month of November, Fiji One TV would EVERYDAY present a Talkshow on Climate Change.
    WTF???
    Honestly DO THESE DUMB MATHAFAKAS THINK THEY GONNA CAUSE THE SEA LEVEL TO GO DOWN BY REDUCING EMISSION IN FIJI???????

    Meanwhile Women are getting raped; Little children are getting raped; Bainimarama releases soldiers who are doing the raping. MEANWHILE THE PEOPLE ARE DISTRACTED BY ALL THIS TALKFEST AND HOTAIR REGARDING CLIMATE CHANGE.

    See how our Leaders continuously HOODWINK US.

    And this will be what will be on again next year.

    Does America give a fark about Climate Change? Are you kidding me. They are the biggest polluters in the world.

    ITS TIME FIJIANS OPEN THEIR EYES AND SEE what Bainimarama and QORVIS are doing to you. They are well and truly farking you properly.

    THE FLAG IS JUST ANOTHER DISTRACTION, people. Meanwhile the mathafakas are stealing your Land; stealing your Money; Stealing your Livelihood. Raising prices of FOOD while they distract you with the FLAG.

    Since 2006, Bainimarama continuously lies Time after Time after Time and yet STUPID DUMB PEOPLE, FIJIANS AND INDIANS continuously fall for these lies.
    UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    One word of Wisdom : Bainimarama does not give a SHIT ABOUT THE FLAG...he will use whatever opinion to advance his own selfish aims.
    Think about it.

    Wish all of you a Happy New Year.


    ONLY DUMB PEOPLE BELIEVE what comes out of BAINIMARAMA's mouth. That includes you Mr Qiliho.

    The problem with people like you is that you think that government, that is more than one person, is supposed to address ONLY ONE issue at the time. Domestic violence is a cultural issue that will require a lot of time to address. What do you expect? All MPs going from house to house, one by one, to tell each man to behave? In the mean time, who shall run the country?

    Bainimarama is a petty dictator, that's for sure. And corrupt. And the people voted for him!!! more than 200000 votes, wasn't? Sodelpa was trying to figure out what went wrong with their message... honestly, very easy to find the answer, but they don't want to look into the mirror... we need a new opposition.

    A good government will come one day hopefully. As for the flag, it might be seen as a distraction as you said, but that doesn't mean the colonial flag shouldn't be changed. It probably takes 1 hour to go through non-ridiculous submissions from the public... and maybe 15 minutes for the government to pick 5 flags. After that it's a short and sweet process to get the public opinion about it through newspapers. When the choice is made, that's it. Cost: 0$. You change the flags as the old one get damaged, they hardly last 3 months.

    Qorvis is a shame.

    Takes a DUMB person to think that's a credible site.
    Who were polled?
    82% of Bainimarama's family?

    More young people in Fiji committed suicide in 2015 compared to 2014.
    More students killing themselves that even cockeye Reddy became concerned.
    More murder than 2014
    More rape
    More child molestation...that even the Police became concerned.
    etc
    So 82% of Fiji thought that was fantastic?

    YEAH IT WAS A REALLY SUCCESSFUL YEAR.

    Stop being such a dickhead.
    Stop parrotting Bai's lies.
    Take a step back and EXAMINE THE FACTS. Its a new year brother.

  54. Thank you KNR for speaking the TRUTH boldly, clearly, loudly and continuously. I can understand your frustration sometimes when you have to use swear words to make your point. Imagine the faces of QORVIS criminals and the two dictators Bai and Khai when they read your comments. Each truth you speak makes them cringe and wonder how many people are reading, listening, thinking and understanding the truth about the dictatorship of Bai and Khai and their evil machinations. Keep up the good wok my friend. Please know that many are reading and listening to you. Many are supporting you. Many appreciate your efforts to open people's eyes and minds to see this dictatorship for what it really is.

    I agree with you that QORVIS is absolutely involved in manipulating the minds of the gullible public. Their company has been notorious for doing that in other countries. There has to be a numbing and dumbing of the public in order for the dictatorship to continue its rule with minimal protest. Many of our people may not know this, but it is our duty to inform them, and you are doing an excellent job at it. Vinaka vakalevu.

    Someday soon, maybe in 2016, as more and more people realize the truth, they will finally decide to stand up and fight against this evil regime. But until then, let us continue to be God's sentinel and speak out against any form of evil, injustice and corruption. As we do so, more people might find the moral courage to join us and condemn this government for its hypocrisy, serious criminal conduct and blatant disregard for the rights of all its citizens to decide what is best for them.

  59. "Your petitioners are atheists, and they define their lifestyle as follows. An atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An atheist accepts that heaven is something for which we should work now – here on earth – for all men together to enjoy. An atheist accepts that he can get no help through prayer, but that he must find in himself the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to grapple with it, to subdue it and to enjoy it. An atheist accepts that only in a knowledge of himself and a knowledge of his fellow man can he find the understanding that will help lead to a life of fulfillment."

    Now in its 51st year, American Atheists is dedicated to working for the civil rights of atheists, promoting separation of state and church, and providing information about atheism. Over the last fifty years, American Atheists has:

    Fought fervently to defend the separation of religion from government
    Appeared in all forms of media to defend our positions and criticisms of religion and mythology
    Held atheist conventions and gatherings throughout the United States, including "Atheist Pride" marches in state capitals
    Demonstrated and picketed throughout the country on behalf of atheist rights and state/church separation
    Published hundreds of books about atheism, criticism of religion, and state/church separation
    Published newsletters, magazines, and member alerts
    Built a robust and diverse community of local affiliates, partners, and activists
    Fostered a growing network of representatives throughout the nation who monitor important First Amendment issues and work on behalf of the organization in their areas
    Grown a network of volunteers who perform a variety of important tasks in their community, from placing American Atheist books in libraries to writing letters and publicizing the atheist perspective
    Preserved atheist literature and history in the nation's largest archive of its kind. The library's holdings span over three hundred years of atheist thought.
    Provided speakers for colleges, universities, clubs, and the news media
    Granted college scholarships to young atheist activists

    Since 1963, American Atheists has been the premier organization fighting for the civil liberties of atheists and the total, absolute separation of government and religion. American Atheists was born out of a court case begun in 1959 by the Murray family which challenged prayer recitation in the public schools.

    That case, Murray v. Curlett, was a landmark in American jurisprudence on behalf of our First Amendment rights. It began:

    "Your petitioners are atheists, and they define their lifestyle as follows. An atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An atheist accepts that heaven is something for which we should work now – here on earth – for all men together to enjoy. An atheist accepts that he can get no help through prayer, but that he must find in himself the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to grapple with it, to subdue it and to enjoy it.

  62. The Fijian Government has again put off a decision on the country's new flag, delaying the next stage for another two months to the end of February next year.
    This comes after prime minister Frank Bainimarama delayed the process by six months in June.
    In a statement the government says it has now received new submissions since it released 23 designs earlier this year, but is still seeking more.
    In March five designs will be chosen through the prime minister's office and then the public will have three months to select one.
    The government says it expects to announce the new flag on 1st July and that it will be raised on Constitution Day, September 7th.
    The plan to change the flag, which has faced widespread opposition in Fiji, was first floated in February last year and Mr Bainimarama had planned to raise it on the country's 45th anniversary last October.
    ----
    Fiji's prime minister Frank Bainimarama says feedback shows the people of Fiji definitely agree on the need to change the flag.
    has pointed to information coming from feedback teams which have been visiting a range of communities and more than 70-thousand hits on the national flag website.
    In a statement Mr Bainimarama said that shows participation in the process.
    He said the mood for change is strong and the challenge is to find a design that speaks to everyone.
    Consultations on the new flag have been extended until the end of the year after mounting debate over the need for a new flag.
    A Tebbutt-Times poll published last week found 53 percent of those questioned wanted the current flag retained, and at least 86 percent would prefer to vote on the matter.
    ----

    well, in NZ, I would say at least 66% want to keep the current flag, my friend reckons 75%. We will see that in March.
    The fact that the Fiji flag gets only 53% support overall means that it it would be very likely replaced in the near future, anyway. So far both New Zealand and Fiji haven't been able to produce any great/inspiring design. In the case of NZ, the referendum is likely to fail. It will be really interesting to see what will happen in Fiji... Exciting year ahead indeed...

  63. Amazing, but sad how some are so mesmerized by the side show periodically bumped up by the FFP Government, like the long drawn out flag issue and others to distract many from the pertinent and urgent bread, tavioka and roti issues.

    The other unfortunate side drama created by the SODELPA's imploding saqa only adds to the blinding effects encouraged by the FFP Gov through Nemani D's daily and other frightened News Editors.

    Sympathies all around towards the 3 Defence Force Actors.Inadvertently in compassionate responses to rumors of foreign plot to create instability only solidifies allegiance within the ranks and files of the 3 Defence Forces.

    No doubt, the rock solid unity within the 3 Forces only affords the Vice Admiral and his side kick Aiyaz the guarantee of the comforts of Government...even if some disgruntled FFP MPs dobbed in by agent Binod now secretly fuming from their nostrils.

    Would 2016 bring to us Fiji Citizens more of the same as in the last 11 so memorable years??...or..uh...?????

    Good bye Big Mick..who will be next for us all to bid farewell to within the SODELPA ranks???

    ..or..may be farewell to some disgruntled FFP MPs who may site previous precedent excuse of " medical and personal" to abscond the FFP ship while the going is good..

    That leaves my NFP, Churches members, Temple and Mosque visitors, NGOs, civic families and the non-elites to campaign, contest and form the next Government should FFP call a snap election early this year or in 2018...

  65. Governments embark on trivial matters such as name changing and flag changing because they have no idea on how to fix up the mess created by their ineptness in governing the country.

    Treasonous military officers like Bainimarama have no effin clue about running a country so they leave everything in the hands of equally clueless effwits like Khaiyum and Giggleho. God help Fiji..!!

    The economy is in a shambles and propped up by money sent by Fijians overseas, the Fiji dollar is a worthless currency, inflation has rocketed through the roof, unemployment is at an all time record high, illiteracy is climbing, public medical services at an all time low, Indigenous revenue based enterprise affirmative programs are just a memory, Indians, Chinese, Part Europeans etc are wandering around confused because it is difficult to reconcile how they have become "kai viti" overnite.The Kai Viti is lost because they have to be called an incomplete noun, "effin i taukei"???

    Dictionary meaning -

    a person who owns something.
    "the owner of a Dog"
    synonyms:possessor, holder, proprietor/proprietress, homeowner, freeholder, landlord, landlady, master/mistress, keeper.


    WTF..!!! can stupid Bainimarama complete his identity.. i taukei ni cava?? Could some bloggers complete Voreqe's identity please..???

    Is he suggesting that "i taukei is suppose to mean" i taukei kei viti or i taukei ni qele...????

    My definition of Voreqe is ' "i taukei ni ka ca kece e yaco tu qo i viti" meaning , he is the originator of why Fiji is effed up today..(treason, murder, torture, nepotism, corruption etc,etc)!!

    Quit all the bullshit about flag changing etc..lets vote these idiots out and send them and their effed up families to Naboro where they belong.

  68. @10:16 PM

    I can't disagree about the level of incompetency and corruption of Bainimarama: I have witnessed some of his dirty dealings myself.
    That being said, I believe that flying a colonial flag (and being proud of it like Pita Waqavonono!!!) explains partly why we ended up where we are today... think about it for a second. We still have a colonized mentality and that's why such a little group of dumb military people can run the show today, in a sense it's not very different from what it used to be before 1970.... same old... same old... So to put it in a sarcastic way, we might as well revert to the 1969 flag, at least it had some Fijian symbols on it... but in my opinion, even when we are sailing in the darkness of Bainimarama, I believe that a flag that would symbolize our independence and strenght might reminds us from time to time that we have a responsability to take ownership of our country (I am assuming here that such a new flag would be the product of a Fiji citizen, not Khaiyum!) As for now, it's time to wake up and start preparing the next elections. Our #1 enemy: FEAR.

  71. @ Siteri..Bainimarama has done some wonderful things in my opinion, but at the expense of alienating a section of the community and mutilating the economy. Many Fijians value their culture but I am afraid he DID NOT deal with the issues in a civil manner, just as Rabuka touted his during his tenure. I guess the three legged stool has failed to live up to its principle, in fact, we have become confused as ever. My view is that, only when we separate the state, tradition and church from each other will we be able to clearly define their place in society. I am afraid it has to take a coup for us to start discussing these issues..is it a good thing? I don't know. As far as I am concerned the status quo seem to be " divide and rule". Just to address your concern about the filth that can emanate from this forum, I guess that should tell you that Bainimarama's leadership has brought out a lot of hatred in people. I respect your boldness to declare your allegiance but you may as well find out why there is stiff opposition

  72. @ Siteri.. I am not a supporter of anyone is government be it Bainimarama or anyone else (inclusive of previous governments) but I will vouch for any good policies they put forward. But it is frustrating that the electorate have a very shallow understanding of the democratic process. I understand that people are exhausted of listening to people like me whining about the past but I am afraid that we have no desire to resist any attempt to remove our elected government by force. First and foremost, we must understand democracy, secondly we must choose leaders who have very little skeleton in their closet, and last but not the least we must accept defeat when it is fair game

    You say you believe in Jehovah and a loyal supporter of Bainimarama.
    May I remind you of what Jehovah says in His book: speaking to His people he said;

    " Take away from Me the noise of your HYMNS, CHORUSES; GOSPEL SONGS etc; I WILL NOT EVEN LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF YOUR MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS;

    BUT O let JUSTICE roll down like a RIVER and righteousness like an EVERFLOWING STREAM. "

    -Amos 5:23 - 24

    Here we can see the heart of God. God obviously rates JUSTICE as more important than singing songs on Sunday at Church.

    GOD is fed up with people turning up to church on Sundays BUT DONT CARE ABOUT THE INJUSTICE TO THEIR FELLOW MEN.

    Mr Vilikesa Soko was inhumanely treated by soldiers. He was sodomised with sticks until he finally died.
    And when these CRIMINALS were brought before the Court, Mr bainimarama INTERVENED to release them. THAT IS GROSS MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE.

    You claim to be one of God's people AND YET YOU SUPPORT THIS CRIMINAL bainimarama.
    This man bainimarama has been carrying out UNJUST acts;
    Murder of CRW soldiers
    He personally bashed women
    He ordered the assault on a man who requested his payment for the song he wrote for Bai's election campaign.
    Releasing soldiers who RAPE and KILL other citizens.
    The list of INJUSTICE by Bainimarama goes ON and ON and ON and ON....

    I dont think you can be a child of Jehovah and at the same time support this evil man.


    Just to let you know Siteri...if the Fijian soldiers were to RAPE your mother with sticks until she died....and Bainimarama released the perpetrators; We would be the first ones to stand up for you.

    Do you mean you were also involved in the iligal 2006 takeover which your saviour pm had carried out ? Have you seen or heard him come forth publicly to apologize for ousting the elected govt of Qarase. He has not come clean on his involvement in various tortures and deaths during his dictatorship. We have gone past 9 new years celebration and here we are on the 10th yet Frank is still silent and pretended to be non guilty. While I applaud you for your advise to pray to Jehovah seeking his blessings and to proceed to the new year, forgetting the past , I will certainly move on but quite frankly I'm reluctant to trust and support a leader who is a liar and a murderer. How can I forget his attrocities of the past?. In your last sentence you mentioned "don't hide any truth". I don't understand what you meant here but the only person who's hiding the truth is your mentor and savior Frank. Did you ask him to reveal the truth and be accountable for his actions in 2000 and in 2006?
    If this is not asked, then go, obtain his responce and come back here.

Bainimarama and his rule has never exhibited the character of God.Pride, treason, torture, murder, lies,corruption, evil,theft, worshiping other Gods are all what Fijians have witnessed in this illegal regime since 2006.

    Wake up Siteri,new bridges, new roads and piece meal government programs will never change the fact that Bainimarama's house is built upon the sands of SATANIC evil.

    Hard to say who is the most corrupt.
    From a reliable source, I know that Mara's wife sent over 10M$ overseas... add to that the collapse of the Yanuyanu resort in Vanuabalavu and what else.... bring that in today's $ and you are well over 30M$ FOR ONE COUPLE ONLY!
    Shall be talk about Rabuka who fucked up the National Bank of Fiji? amongst many other things....

    The sad thing is that we have been poorly governed (and still are) to the extent we couldn't even do a good ranking of who's the worst!!!

  92. Hey Semi, $100mil could send 200 students from your village all the way to University Degree in any university in the world.
    How about that Semi?
    You could get doctors, pilots, engineers, nurses, teachers etc etc. Any career those village kids want they can get.
    Imagine how influential your village could become in the whole of Fiji.
    But instead Bainimarama spends it on his kids and nothing to show for it.
    Don't you think , he should be thrown in jail for stealing the people's money?

    How long have you been away from Fiji? You better think twice if your planning to return because yours is a household blacklisted name. "More transparent this year??" Before advising us here about transparency can you explain why after every comments you made on c45 you went back and delete them . Are you hiding evidence and tried to save your arse from something looming. Not smart enough. You had succeeded in deleting your own comments but your name.I don't see you being transparent at all, so don't act like a hypocrite.

    We are not asking Semi to lie. It is the TRUTH. Bainimarama stole $100mil from the Ministry of Finance.

    That's the evidence.

  106. To make it worse Kaiyum and Bainimarama refused to cooperate with the Auditor General on the missing $100mil. And they advised the Ministry of Finance not to give any paperwork to the Auditor General.
    THAT IS TOTAL CORRUPTION. Its not even their f*%king money. The money belongs to the people.
    Meanwhile the Anti-corruption body FICAC, turns a BLIND EYE to it all.

  107. Training program for 323 villages

    Tuesday, January 05, 2016

    provincial training division Ro Aca Mataitini during an interview with The Fiji Times yesterday.

    Senior training officer of the iTaukei Affairs Board provincial training division Ro Aca Mataitini during an interview with The Fiji Times yesterday.

    THE iTaukei Ministry will conduct training in 323 villages this year under their leadership and management training for the vanua program.

    The training program aims to uphold traditional values and beliefs, strengthening ties and relations as well as ensuring that everyone knows their roles and places in a village setting.

    Senior training officer for the iTaukei Affairs Board provincial training division Ro Aca Mataitini said this would be a continuation from May last year when the program began.

    He said only 177 villages were covered last year.

    Mr Mataitini said they would start conducting training from next week where six teams would leave for Vanua Levu.

    Another 10 teams would leave to conduct three weeks of training in all 60 villages of Kadavu.

    "We will then visit Yasawa and cover all the 51 villages. This is to complete the training we conducted in the Ba Province last year where we covered 56 villages," Mr Mataitini said.

    The training also helps in resolving conflicts that exist in a village, and reconciliation concluded the training if it was a success.

    Mr Mataitini said they had positive feedback from all the villages they visited.

    "An evaluation is usually carried out after the training and we have been getting positive feedback from the people. The training has been a success," he said.

    Its not an example of the great work this government is doing but an example of THE STUPIDITY OF THIS GOVERNMENT.
    Its an example of the half-cooked or half-baked , mindless knee jerk response so typical of Bainimarama's government.
    Honestly , you have to ask as to WHY ARE THEY DOING IT?
    Why arent they going around to Indian Settlements and doing the same thing there?
    Isnt this DISCRIMINATION by Bainimarama government?
    The Indian Culture is changing too.
    I see more Indians committing suicide than Fijians, so why is Bainimarama just teaching culture to Fijians?

    THIS IS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF SELF-PROMOTION BY THIS GOVERNmeNT and does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO FIJIAN CULTURE.

    For me to give a Full Analysis of this will take one whole page but I'm going to write 2 points and that will be it.

    1) Firstly, Fijian Culture is like RESPECT. It is caught rather than taught.
    And that is why there is no "School of Culture" in any Fijian village, even before the white-man came. But Dikhead Bainimarama wants to show us WHAT A WONDERFUL JOB HE IS DOING..

    2) And secondly,Jesus said that you will know A TREE BY ITS FRUITS, rather than by what comes out of their mouth......ie THE BAINIMARAMA GOVERNMENT's aim is to disrupt Fijian Society.
    via 3 main pathways
    a) by disrupting their Culture - Chiefly system and Christianity etc etc .
    b) by disrupting their identity - changing their name to iTaukei
    and c) by dispossesing them of their Land ( via a Land Bank etc)

    What Bainimarama is doing is called TOKENISM.
    It is to give AN ILLUSION to Fijians that he is really their friend. Whereas in fact, its a pointless exercise in futility.
    Stupidity at its best. its a waste of money.
    The money is better used as support money for those village-kids whose parents dont have money to support them.

    As you know sometimes computers make mistakes and start to allocate more votes to one person, more than usual. Like in the last election, we have processes in place.
    In such a situation we will stop the vote counting and take the votes from that one person and give it to our beloved Leader Voreqe Bainimarama.
    In this way , we will have a fair and unbiased election.

  119. Taken from/By:
    Report by: Ritika Pratap

    Prime Minister Voreqe Baininarama has urged Fijians to join the pursuit to design a flag that represents the new Fiji.
    The government has further extended the feedback period for designs for the new national flag to 29 February.
    In his New Year’s message the Prime Minister says that a number of new submissions have been received since the twenty-three designs were published last year.
    “The new time frame will be as follows: From 1st to the 19th of March 2016, 5 designs will be chosen, through the PM’s Office, for you all to vote on. Members of the public will have 3 months to vote on the 5 designs through public consultations, social media and text messaging. It is expected that the design with the most votes will be announced on 1 July to be our new national flag.”
    The new national flag will be raised on Constitution Day, the 7th of September.

    You are asking that if we could also put some directives in our postings because politicians sometime read our posts.
    In my last posting at 1:22AM I said that I did not have time or space to explain everything.
    IF YOU WORK IN GOVERNMENT AND YOU READ THAT POSTING, THEN YOU WILL FIND DIRECTIVES WRITTEN IN IT.
    Even in the rebuke, I have hidden directives in there.
    1.I wanted politicians in FFP to wake up.
    The problem is they are just "Yes " men. They are not thinking. Bainimarama says something and they do it.

    Boso au via tukuna yani qo e dua na ka...... e levu na directives e solia tiko o Bainimarama e lako tiko mai vei QORVIS.

    YA NA I VAKARAU NI TAMATA LIALIA. Swallowing everything HOOK LINE AND SINKER.

    Ya meratou wili tale ga kina o ira na politician ni FFP.

    You have to ask "WHAT THE FARK IS GOING ON?" Politicians need to ask this question.

    If you note in my posting above I said that this Culture School is a "typical knee-jerk reaction"; typical Bainimarama leadership style."
    AND USUALLY IT ENDS UP WITH MAKING THE SITUATION WORSE.
    Every word I write is written carefully and hidden in it are directives to the politicians.

    This is why I call it a knee-jerk:
    Firstly its good that they recognise that there is a problem of a total loss of control of Fijian Culture happening in the villages and in towns. ( Slight exageration there for impact purposes)
    Anyway their answer is to immediately JUMP UP AND DOWN AND TELL EVERYONE "WE ARE RUNNING FIJIAN CULTURE SCHOOL" in every village.

    Kevaka o FFP Politician you have to ask yourself " Why did Bainimarama give this DIRECTIVE"
    YOU HAVE TO ASK THE "MOTIVE"...because motives have a bearing on your RESULTS...
    Kevaka o taroga sara vakamalua, au kila na directive qo e lako mai vei QORVIS.
    ON THE OUTSIDE IT LOOKS FANTASTIC....but its actually a can of worms.

    Fijians have no idea about what is happening to them.

    Bainimarama and QORVIS are killing them slowly.

    Qo na wekaqu, Mr Ratu, na result ni ka e kitaka tiko qo o QORVIS e na sega in votu mai ni mataka se next uyear. O ratou ratou rai sara tiko i liu. 5 year , 10 year plan.

    OK sa rauta mada. Ni sa moce. Go back & read what I wrote at 1:22AM because there are messages hidden in there.

    O QORVIS, nona i valu e sega ni sicini ni dakai o koya e vakayagataka tiko na ka e vakatokai na "psychological warfare".

  123. @9:23 AM

    I get your point. I will respect your comment IF the new flag is NOT a Bainimarama flag (that is a flag designed by him, or his friends, family, flag committee, Khaiyum, etc.) IF it is a flag from the public AND has a large support from the people, it will be a flag of Fiji. There lies the issue. That is why some of the Opposition is still crying (even some of those supporting the government side) Some people in the opposition might be just too ignorant to understand they are flying a flag which is even more colonial then the former flag (the colonial flag had the Fijian warriors and the boat at least) as the current flag has a bigger lion, bigger english cross, etc... That is probably unique in history... a flag of an independent nation looking more colonial than the colonial flag... and the people are proud of it?!? weird.

    If you've got nothing to do, kick your ass and design a new flag yourself... Fiji desperately needs a new flag.

    ----


    THE Opposition has reiterated its stand saying the FijiFirst Government does not have the mandate to change the flag unilaterally.

    This follows the announcement by Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama that the new flag will be raised on Constitution Day — September 7 this year.

    Leader of the National Federation Party Professor Biman Prasad said Government should undertake a proper national referendum to ascertain that people wanted a change in their flag.

    "It is unfortunate that Government now once again, after aborting the process for a while, has decided to continue on its original path of imposing a new flag on the people of Fiji," Prof Prasad said.

    He said the Government should go back to the people through a referendum.

    He added Government should not waste any more money on the process they had adopted earlier.

    Meanwhile, Mr Bainimarama said the final flag design would be announced on July 1 after three months of voting through public consultations, social media and text messages.

    Mr Bainimarama said Government had received a number of new submissions since the 23 designs were published last year.

    He said Government decided to further extend the feedback period for new designs to February 29.

    Ratu is a classic example of what is wrong with many Fijians in this country including some chiefs.His advice to others accept whatever evil Bainimarama has dished out to the citizens of Fiji since 2006 and get on his bandwagon.

    I will not list the very public heinous crimes Bainimarama has committed but will give Ratu one very good advice.By not speaking out or attempting to bring justice to all the victims of the dictators evil reign, Ratu is the worst type of human being on the planet.

    Anon 12.48 is concerned and correct by asking, "Ratu - if your daughter is getting raped by Bainimarama, are you suggesting turning a blind eye and still support what Bainimarama is doing?

    Please Ratu or whoever you are...do not comment here because you are an idiot and a lowlife, vakaloloma nomu bula.!!

    ReplyDelete
  125. @1:05 PM

    well, of course it's a good point, though using the words "idiot" and "lowlife" somewhat pictures you as a child, unable to argue within civilized parameters.

    What you are talking about is actually not an "idiotic" problem, but has complicated one with deep reaching philosophical implications.
    Shall we accept Cesar, that is the question here.
    That question was asked thousands of years ago, and still was in Rwanda, Yugoslavia, Cambodia more recently...
    It is not an easy one. The problem here is that to get rid of Bainimarama through a court of justice potentially leads to chaos. There is also a lot of discontent against the traditional leaders, who have all proved to be corrupt... So your average citizen look at it this way: corruption, rapes, murders etc.... OR ... maybe chaos, rape, murders, corruption... I think this is why some people want to jump in the Bainimarama wagon.... it's called the least of two evils.

    Life on earth is far from paradise... animals kill each other, humans kill each other, from immemorial time until today and tomorrow. Life is miserable, full of hatred, diseases, anger, lies, cunning, etc... Bainimarama is nothing new.

    The people of Fiji have voted Bainimarama in. From what I see on the ground, it seems that he gets avout 60% support. So what can you do in that case? After loosing the election, Kepa said to journalists that she was wondering why some iTaukei votes went to Bainimarama... the fact she was asking why ITAUKEI votes went to Bainimarama explains partly why she lost... her party is only iTaukei party, and I would say rural party.

    The thing to do now is to create a new party AND convince the people of Fiji that they should not be afraid to vote against Bainimarama.

  129. Too simplistic, anon 1.38pm and BTW, I use the words idiot and low life sparingly when justified. Your long winded explanation about animals etc..is kinda childish when considering it being your justification for voting Bainimarama out as a solution to Fiji's problem.

    The most apt solution is for everyone to speak out in one collective voice against him.If everyone said to him.."No..Voreqe.. you are wrong in breaking the law and we will not support any of your schemes or leadership". There is no need for an election to do this because the problem lies with people who cannot correct his ways.We do not hesitate to correct a child or someone we know so why not Bainimarama? This question is military personnel, those in government, judges, pastors,party leaders, individuals and Bainimarama's family members.

    Will you do it?

    The people of Fiji said YES to Bainimarama @60%.

    The people of Fiji will say NO the day they will think they are ready to take the pain that comes with it, that is... never!

    But maybe out of those 60% a good 50% really don't give a shit about what the military people did. Ethics are not really on top of the agenda of your average human being. Most people are practical. They look at the big picture and vote for what they think will serve their own personal interest better. If some people had to get raped or killed, well... it's gonna be forgotten next year...next month...next week. Sad, but true.

    Bainimarama is unlikely to ever get punished. He will never leave power. There are too many people around him with blood on their hands... and Fiji is simply NOT a country of revolutions.

    Its obvious that you are farked in the head.
    Honestly I think you Bainimarama's supporters have A SERIOUS LACK OF LOGIC.
    I mean just think about it. USE YOUR FARKING HEAD YOU DUMB KUNT.
    Do you really think Bainisona is going to sit there and listen to me?
    Are you farked in the head or what?
    -Have you heard of Josefa Bilitaki who asked Bainimaram for his payment for the song Bainimaram used for his election campaign.
    -Have you heard of Apenisa from Kadavu who was beaten up at the main gate in Delainabua when he wanted to discuss something with Bainimarama.
    -Have you eard that only last week Biman Prasad was told to go jump in the lake by Bainimarama himself when Biman asked for a discussion of the Constitution.

    AND YET AFTER ALL THAT you ask me to take a list of my complaints to bainisona.
    Are you for real?
    YOU HAVE NO LOGICAL THOUGHT PROCESS AT ALL.
    Typical farked up FFP politician.
    Go fark yourself.

  135. @5.12pm...you've made some good points and the bottomline is simply that no one really gives a shit about democracy.. @Anon 10.38pm posted above an article stating the government's initiative in introducing training programs that is aimed at educating villagers to "uphold traditional values and beliefs, strengthening ties and relations as well as ensuring that everyone knows their roles and places in a village setting"..he or she calls this "great work by government"? ..as far as I am concerned it is a reflection of the height of stupidity that is replete within the ruling party. Fijians value their tradition and know who they are...it is unclear what value these programs will add to the already rich tradition that has been in existence before Bainimarama developed eyelids.I would rather see a push to increase awareness of the democratic process, the rule of law, and the right to self-determination. Unfortunately the last 20 years or so has been a cycle of legitimatizing criminals through the democratic process. The coups have been declared illegal by the courts (that is a no brainer) unfortunately a revolution to restore the rightful holder has never occurred ..WHY?..It is because people are apathetic, dulled and uneducated.

  136. If we oppose Bainmarama then it is about time we vote him out. He has ruled illegally for 8 years and the illegality of his rule was legitimatised by a fearful, racist and uneducated populace for a further 4 years (and I am not singling out a particular race) . What he has achieved though is the work of a well "crafted machine" to which (to use biblical terminology) "even the very elect will be deceived "

  139. @Anon 2.28 pm. Thank you so much. Its Time to Say no More. We the People Have Had Enough. We shall not wait for an election to do that. We must do it asap. The mess of murder, torture, rape, mismanagement, theft, deceit, lies, fraud, deception, manipulation, nepotism, cronyism, etc, etc, etc etc goes on and on.

    Must we have another three years of calculated and systematic destruction of our culture, lands, education, economy and society to take action ? NO. I think not. We must take action NOW. We must march as a nation to tell Bai, khai, QORVIS and their puppets ENOUGH. STOP THIS MESS. WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH.

    If we do that, they will know we the people are in control, not them. It is us who put politicians in Parliament and they serve us the people, and not the other way around.
    If we do that, we will remind them that we still embrace beliefs, God-given rights, values and principles that even Parliament has no legal right or power to change.
    If we do that, we will remind Vore and Khaisi and all their pupprts and so called followers that not even the evil twisted minds at QORVIS, nor the money power of Tappoos, Meghji,, CJ Patel and others shall overpower our will to stand up for our rights and defend our nation and protect our children, and our future.

  141. Grog swipers 'harass' vendors

    Joanne Vaetiti
    Thursday, January 07, 2016

    Regulars at the Labasa grog stall have come under the spotlight for their behaviour.

    LABASA market vendors have raised their voices against the arrogant attitude of some men who drink grog at the stalls near the market.

    Amid their complaints are men who pass rude remarks at women vendors, and men who urinate near the market area.

    Women vendors have urged the Labasa Town Council to act on this concern because it was affecting business and turned it into an unpleasant trading area.

    Vendor, Kiran Devi said they found it annoying when most men consuming yaqona at the stalls would pass rude remarks at them.

    "Some of the men just urinate behind the market which is a very offensive behaviour since we have women vendors at the market," Ms Devi said.

    She said this left an unpleasant odour in the area.

  143. Good bye and moce mada Ratu. Frank is a coward and cannot be confronted without his armed securities on his sides. Lead up to the 2006 coup he ran to his x boss's office the late Col Waqanisau(PS) to call him out for a fist fight but the coward was accompanied by 2 of his bodyguards. Attorney Rt Komaisavai, did you remember after the coup that he challenged Frank publicly on TV for a fist fight? We all know that Franks strength depends entirely on his armed bodyguards and he is a weakling with a loud mouth.
    Asking KNR to approach him face to face is stupid and childish, why don't you call the 90% c45 bloggers here who are anti Bainimarama/Khaiyum to face off with him.
    Not only is he a coward and weakling but is also a numbskull, a blockhead and an idiot. The $420,000 as 20% of $400,000 is the climax of his "qanibulu" a self made math formula he came up with-result from reading too much comic books in school.

  154. What @ Ratu does not seem to understand are TH CONSEQUENCES OF BAINIMARAMA'S ACTIONS.

    People watch their LEADER and follow them.

    That is a very human and natural thing to do.
    If a LEADER is bashing women = like Bainimarama ( he bahsed Buadromo ; then assaulted the TV reporter from NZ etc etc) then of course the people will bash their women too.
    WHY DO YOU THINK THERE IS INCREASED DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN FIJI.

    If Bainimarama goes against AUTHORITY and commit treason and that is why people are now doing horrible things to each other.

    I SAID FROM THE BEGINNING ( in 2006) THAT EVERY TOM DICK AND HARRY IN FIJI WILL GO AGAINST AUTHORITY AND DO THEIR OWN LITTLE COUPS. From the Government to the lowest JOKER in the village.
    And so it has become.

    CHILD MOLESTATION is a form of COUP. It is the BULLY abusing the
    POWERLESS.

    People see their LEADER stealing money and getting away with it AND THATS WHY THEY DO IT. THAT IS WHY CORRUPTION HAS GOTTEN WORSE UNDER BAINIMARAMA all over Fiji.

    I HAVE SAID ALL THIS BEFORE TIME AND TIME AGAIN.

    And that is why this farking FIJIAN CULTURE SCHOOL is the WRONG solution to the problem.

    So you RATU go fark yourself, You and all FFP you are all farked in the head.

  155. 8.29am Thanks for bringing this to light. I guess all complaints had fell on deaf ears.
    What's the town and police doing to bring those groggy lazy bastards to task. Sa levu ga na gunu yaqona sigidrigi tiko ena bogi, moce tiko ena siga. Is there a public rest room in the market area? If it is, is it hygienically fit for public use? Local markets are food centers so it must remain clean all the time. Does the market have an opening and closing hr or straight 24/7?. Are Vendors allowed to sleep in overnight in the market with their produce. If it is, then the Labasa Town council must foot the blame for poor control.
    3 simple solutions.

    1 get police to involve and enforce rule of law.
    2. Start charging vendors extra for sleeping in the market or simply lock it up in the evening.
    3. Improve the restroom to attract every Tom Dick and Harry to deposit their package in the loo not anywhere.

  159. PSC announces details of expatriate PS’s January 06, 2016 04:08:48 PM by Reginald Chandra

    The Public Service Commission has announced the names of five expatriate Permanent Secretaries who will take up office by March. Mr Ewan Perrin an IT Consultant with RPV Consultants in Canberra, Australia has been appointed the Permanent Secretary for Communication and Information Technology. Ms Nicole Jauvin, a retired Deputy Minister for the Government of Canada and President of the Canadian Public Service Agency has is the new Permanent Secretary for the Civil Service. Mr Paul Bayly, the Manager Director of Melbourne based company Cranleigh is the new Permanent Secretary for Infrastructure and Transport. Current chief executive of Housing Authority of Fiji, Mr Joshua Wycliffe is the new Permanent Secretary for Local Government, Housing and Environment. And UK based Business Development Manager of Sport 80 Services Limited, Ms Alison Burchell is the new Permanent Secretary for Youth and Sports.

    Just like the Pol Com appointment, this is another exercise in futility...the government has lost every iota of trust in the current pool of civil servants...Either they are suspected of not towing the line or there is not enough available to carry out their cunning plans

    My statement is a True statement.
    A child will generally walk in the footsteps of his parents, his first Leader. Everyone knows this.
    If the father is a drug addict and thief, the children generally turn out the same.
    If the father bashes his mother; the child usually grows up to be a wife-basher.
    "Everything rises and falls on Leadership "says Dr John Maxwell.
    I'm sure if you look up Ghandi he probably said the same thing too and that's why his movement became effective.
    Mandela was a great Leader and lots of people everywhere still try to imitate.

    I don't have time to explain to you about Leadership , even from Animals and to Humans.

    Alexander the Great conquered a lot of countries because he was a great Leader that inspired his men.

    The word "inspire" means the follower has caught something of the Leader.
    And we human beings tend to follow a Leader . Whether its playing Rugby or whether its running a Country.
    As humans this trait can be the force for our greatest achievement or it can also be the force that leads to our biggest downfall.
    UNFORTUNATELY FOR US IN FIJI WE ARE HOSTAGE TO THE LATTER.

    Remember when your mum warned you not to hang around with those kids over there.
    Yeah she knows what the wrong Leader can do to a good boy.

    Training program for 323 villages
    Losalini Bolatagici
    Tuesday, January 05, 2016

    Senior training officer of the iTaukei Affairs Board
    provincial training division Ro Aca Mataitini during an interview with The Fiji Times yesterday.

    Senior training officer of the iTaukei Affairs Board provincial training division Ro Aca Mataitini during an interview with The Fiji Times yesterday.

    THE iTaukei Ministry will conduct training in 323 villages this year under their leadership and management training for the vanua program.

    The training program aims to uphold traditional values and beliefs, strengthening ties and relations as well as ensuring that everyone knows their roles and places in a village setting.

    Senior training officer for the iTaukei Affairs Board provincial training division Ro Aca Mataitini said this would be a continuation from May last year when the program began.

    He said only 177 villages were covered last year.

    Mr Mataitini said they would start conducting training from next week where six teams would leave for Vanua Levu.

    Another 10 teams would leave to conduct three weeks of training in all 60 villages of Kadavu.

    "We will then visit Yasawa and cover all the 51 villages. This is to complete the training we conducted in the Ba Province last year where we covered 56 villages," Mr Mataitini said.

    The training also helps in resolving conflicts that exist in a village, and reconciliation concluded the training if it was a success.

    Mr Mataitini said they had positive feedback from all the villages they visited.

    "An evaluation is usually carried out after the training and we have been getting positive feedback from the people. The training has been a success," he said.

    Vinaka.
    What's the sole purpose of this training? Is it for publicity to showcase the person conducting it or to prove the wasteful resources in running this program. Prof Paul Geraghty of USP ( professional Linguist) had conducted similar training across Fiji sometime back. There's no better trainer to conduct this than Vaula. He is the best. Bainimarama should invite Prof Paul to conduct this training because he understands, speaks and writes not only Bauan but all and various Fijis dialects. He knows our various traditions too.
    Someone had also mentioned that what traditional values and ties do they want to teach when each province, district and village have there own traditional system and is different. Do not enforce a system where a system had existed thousands of years. I was taught Bauan sevusevu vakaturaga in school but at home I'm not allowed to follow it because I'm not Bauan.
    To those who came up with this program perhaps it's best to reconsider their stand on the BLV.
    BLV is the body of real and recognized chiefs. Today we have too many overnight and self proclaimed Ratus', Ros', Adis' who are running the show and dictating. Frank is one of them. Ratu of c45 is another. Tradition and culture are directly linked with chiefs(veivakaturagataki) There's no traditional culture without a chief.
    To conclude:: this exercise is merely a waste of money and time....tp's money down the drain.

    WHILE families all over the country prepare to send their children to school, for some the idea of sending their children is a hardship they cannot meet.

    This is the case for the Wati family of Raiwaqa who were the victims of the fire that razed their home last year.

    When The Fiji Times team visited their home at the Public Rental Board flats in Raiwai, Suva yesterday, their uncle, Amar Kumar, 45, was at their home to provide support to his sister's family because she was bedridden from an infected leg which she fears could be amputated.

    Mr Kumar said the children's dream of going to school would not come true this year because of the lack of financial support.

    Like most of the judges from Sri Lanka, these 5 expats are only in Fiji for a holiday and to line their pockets of precious Fijian taxpayer money.Government deficit will continue to skyrocket through PS overseas pay rates. If theses expats have a conscience, they will work hard to rid the government of Bainimarama's cronies who got their jobs through the 'no military officer will profit form the coup" and"job for the boys" program since 2006. If these expats continue the masi-polo tradition then locals in the PS should give them hell.

  185. Liaquat Ali, John Vugakoto Kean and Bainimarama are criminals.
    Liaquat Ali is using Lot 1 in Vakabalea for advertisement only (!!!).
    He doesn't even own the land, but he knows "someone" at the Land Department.
    He is trying to get rid of a fat conman squatting on his land who is a relative
    of Bainimarama, himself trying to get the land using his connections...

    Looking for corruption and nepotism? Just go and have a look at Lot 1, Vakabalea.

Come lately Anon of January 8, 2016 at 4:02 PM..fyi...have been an NFP member and supporter probably well before the present NFP MPs..am a former unsuccessful National candidate in 1982 and NFP Youth Vice President under my real and same name!!. Never supported or member of your god Bainimarama or his FFP elite club...Go NFP!!!!


    Kua ni Rere of January 8, 2016 at 6:19 PM and Anon January 8, 2016 at 7:21 PM...do you think your son or daughter, or even your own mum would be clapping after you read to them your post in the blog??

    I do not think so!! For you see,people life you sees your image in the mirror and forgets how you look like a second after..

    Worst still, forget your name, values, morals and even who you married to or even forgets your son and daughter's name..that's the reason you unashamedly indulge in dark side of you heart and brain..with out any respect for your loved one.

    Just that how you respect your loved ones mirrors how you view the world outside of your home..

    But..but...you should return home and hug and be grateful to your wife and children as their sanity and righteousness keeps that heart beating one more day..feel your heartbeat...it must be racing at top speed like a jackrabbit now!...poor soul or free and borrowed time!

    My NFP is sure to win the next elections as our party machinery are poised in election mode already, while SODELPA is badly limping and FFP is too occupied in explaining themselves to voters who've change their minds!!

    Fiji may just see her first Lady Prime Minister soon!! Go NFP!!

  190. Yesterday they had an Education Conference at Suva Grammar School to try and address some issues. They also established an Education Commission to " harmonise the synergy in the education sector". WHAT FARKING SYNERGY ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT.
    DO THESE PEOPLE UNDERSTANDING THE MEANING OF THE WORD SYNERGY.

    Ever since the Colonialists and then Rt Mara government and then Rabuka, Fiji's education went in leaps and bounds. Indians achieved a lot. Fijians achieved a great deal. Engineers, Doctors , Nurses etc etc .A lot of them working high up the tree in Overseas Countries.

    However ever since Bainisona took over the government in 2006, the Education System got completely farked.
    Now they have the biggest dropout rates. Fijian education has gotten worse. With the " Free Education " even some Indians cant afford to send their kids to school. WTF!
    And a few weeks ago the Dux of a school in Labasa committed suicide due to his Education Marks.
    BAINIAMARAMA AND REDDY FARKED UP THE EDUCATION SYSTEM. Pure and Simple.
    And now they want to extend "NO EXAMS" all the way through High School.
    TALK ABOUT " OUT OF THE FRYING PAN, INTO THE FIRE".

    The Australians have a saying " If its not broke, dont fix it".

    The education was system was working well until the arsehole bainimarama stuck his nose in it. Farking up the scholarship system; the exam system; and now kids are killing themselves"

    Maybe they should ask the doornail who calls himself "Ratu" above to help them out.
    The problem in FFP is no one uses their brain anymore. When you have a tyrannical Leader like bainisona, unfortunately these will be the type of people you accumulate in government.
    Getting expats into the system is like throwing fuel into the fire.
    They wont help the situation. Its just a Holiday Junket for them. Its the people who will get the i samu ni dawa.

  193. Democracy at its best, if you can't compete or accept difference put it down. Mr Nawadra, you are a hypocrite simply trying to hold on to your own failing cult.

    Church warns flock
    Sikeli Qounadovu
    Saturday, January 09, 2016
    THE Methodist Church in Fiji has sent out a circular to all its circuits to be wary of a Korean cult sect that is in the country.

    President of the Methodist Church Reverend Tevita Nawadra said they were given the warning through its Methodist partner in Korea, the Korean Missionary Fellowship in Fiji.

    Mr Nawadra said its communications department was informed to ensure announcements were made in all Methodist churches of the presence of the cult sect.

    "The problem with this Korean cult sect is that it is misinterpreting the Bible for its own gain, and this worries the church."

    Mr Nawadra said it had a strong relationship with the KMF and therefore would not take any of its warning lightly.

    He said word from its Korean counterpart that Good News Mission, Good News Church, International Youth Fellowship, Grace Road Church and Grace Road Company were a Korean cult.

    A letter circulated by the Korean Missionary Fellowship had accused the church as a "cultic movement" and that the fellowship wanted to "sound an alarm to all Fijians to be wary."

    "These churches have been announced by the mainline churches in Korea as cultic movements, hiding their identity they are now trying to expand their influence in Fiji.

    "These cultic movements are already proven harmful in Korea."

    Church superintendent and IYF mind educator pastor Kim Jinsung has denied these claims stating they were baseless.

    Speaking through a translator, Mr Jinsung said many who entered their organisation had opened up their hearts and felt at peace with the teachings they received.

    He said there were many people who criticised them without any reason, even in Korea.

    Mr Jinsung added that a lot of people criticised Jesus as well, in particular the religious sect.

    The letter further stated that the IYF had been deceiving its followers by misinterpreting teachings from the Bible to push their own agenda.

  194. Go to Iceland!!
    Voreqe Bainimarama to gay marriage.
    Will he change tune later after recruiting expats from countries which support gay marriage? The new PSC-PS hails from Canada a country championing gay marriage.

    Prime Minister of Fiji Voreqe (Frank) Bainimarama has simple advice to offer those in his country who fight for the legalization of same-sex marriage, according to fijisun.com. For any woman who wants to marry another woman, he advises, “Go and have it done in Iceland and stay and live there.”

    The comment was made on Tuesday in response to human rights activist Shamima Ali, who would like to see Fiji allow same-sex marriage. The prime minister said, “Tell Shamima Ali, there will be no same sex marriage in Fiji, a topic pushed by NGOs such as hers under the issue of human rights.”

    Since 2010, sexual activity between people of the same sex has been legal in Fiji, but the country does not allow same-sex marriages or civil unions. A travel guide to Fiji states, “it is strongly recommended for gay and lesbian travelers to Fiji to not display their affection toward each other in public.”

    Same-sex marriage has been legal in Iceland since 2010.

    To the gay community. ..Do not push your luck. It's too soon. As long as Frank is in power the right to same sex marriage will remain shelved. Leave it alone and never touch it. I salute you Voreqe for your stand on same sex marriage. A lot had been said and published by big media about this topic here and abroad to promote this right but little had been published about those opposing it.To Shamima Ali it's plainly clear and prudent to accept the PM'S stand on this topic and move on. Homosexuals are part of society and are already accepted in our community but same sex marriage is not accepted in Fiji. Its now out of the horses mouth so just let it be.
    Thank you Frank.
