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.

What kind of an idiot is the Minister for Education Dr Mahindra Reddy.
He is blaming headteachers with zero marks awarded to Year 6 students who failed to write their index numbers on their answer sheets. Teachers and Heads of schools undertaking external examinations are excluded from the exam rooms. The exams are entirely manned by supervisors provided by the ministry of Education !
The minister is a total farce and a person who is certainly not a fit and proper person to hold the position of Minister for Education. He is a laughing stock among the Education fraternity. His standard of spoken English also leaves a lot to be desired !
Please , please PM find someone else who can deliver !

Narere resident - Narendra Gounder fears for life
Taken from/By: FBC News
Report by: Tokasa Rainima

A small community in Narere, Nasinu are fearing for their lives following numerous robberies and break-ins at their homes for the past two months.

Residents of Mana Street told FBC News, they want police to speed up their investigation so the culprits are caught.

More than thirteen houses along the street have been a target some unknown men since November, last year.

Items stolen include jewellery, laptops, mobile phones, cash, live chickens, clothes and wrist watches. The recent break-in took place on Thursday.

Resident – Narendra Gounder whose house was broken into twice says his family and neighbours are living in fear and they do not know what will happen next.
“It was broken once last month and two weeks ago they entered again in my bottom flat, and the again entered the top flat. The thing is the first time they came – they took everything, but then they coming again – we don’t have anything to give to them."
Another resident, Soko Vakacegu whose house was broken – into on Thursday says the unknown intruder cut her gate before she entered the house.

Ravin Prasad is concerned of the safety of his wife and children, although they have lodged their complaints with Police three weeks ago.
Police told FBC News that the complaints from residents are with their Internal Affairs Unit and they are investigating the matter.

PM Bainimarama now undergoes kidney dialysis and is a confirmed patient at the dialysis treatment center in Suva. Enquiries revealed that no records are kept of his dialysis and thus it has been assumed that he is not paying for his treatment either while every other patient has to pay $250+ per dialysis.
Attempts to obtain confirmation of non payment from the Kidney Center were unsuccessful as the official said that the matter was highly confidential.

Ben..is this true? how is it that Bainimarama is still globe trotting without his dialysis machine? He is the 1st public servant (PM to be precise) so all his medical expenses will be met by the government. I do not agree with him on a lot of things, but I also would not hit him below the belt with a load of BS

I understand how you feel about Franks stand on same sex marriage. If you dissect his message you'll realize that he did not object entirely but provide an opportunity for those who want to marry his/her partner. The opportunity is the land of the free- Iceland. What's the problem with that? Pack your stuff and fly to Iceland and when you get there, get married and live there..I see no evil or hate in this statement but a safe route to help this society fulfill their life..If Frank is showing you guys a way out, he simply meant that Fiji is not ready to accept same sex marriage.

Disciplinary action to be taken against officers
17:16 Today

Taken from/By: FBC News
Report by: Ritika Pratap

Divisional Police Commander Southern Suliano Babakoro has been directed to take disciplinary action against officers who are found to be neglecting their duties.

Chief of Operations ACP Rusiate Tudravu has issued the directive in light of the recent media spotlight on robbery cases in Narere, Nasinu.

Over the weekend, FBC News highlighted the plight of residents who complained that there have been a spate of robberies over 3 weeks with no action taken by police.

ACP Tudravu admits there are shortfalls in service delivery with regards to attending to reports and the follow up action.

He has assured the Narere community that all efforts have been directed towards restoring the confidence of the people and this has been an ongoing exercise led by the Station Officer in Nasinu personally.

There has been an increase in foot and mobile patrols to ensure maximum visibility and presence on the ground.

ACP Tudravu adds those who continue to face difficulties with officers in their respective divisions should call the Divisional Police Commanders directly.

Tudravu has also requested the media to be responsible and fair with reporting after comments on the efforts being made in Narere was omitted from news reports.

These Russian weapons are just a waste of money and will only be used against unarmed civilians whom they are supposed to protect. FMF is the laughing stock of military establishments in the region.

Couple regrets deal
Losalini Bolatagici
Thursday, January 14, 2016
A COUPLE who bought shares from Fijians Helping Fiji Co-operative Ltd (FHFCL) said they were promised an investment return by 2017.

The couple said they regretted buying shares after the news of the company being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the US.

The $120 they paid, according to them, was to buy stock shares from the American Stock Exchange.

Choosing to speak on conditions of anonymity, they told this newspaper that they bought shares with the company in November last year after a group of company officials visited their village.

Their village is in the western side of Viti Levu.

They said they were convinced because they were told the Government and its leaders were aware of the company and its investment plan for the country.

The husband claimed his village could probably be one of the villages that recorded the highest number of membership for this institution.

"We were told that if a lot of people register, then it would be easy for them to come and sell shares," the man said.

He said they were also told the company would visit the village next week to buy cassava from the farmers. The cassava would sell at $1 a kilogram.

"If we are members and we don't have cassava to sell, we would still get an investment return. But for those who have produced, they sell. They would get their money and part of the payment would again be added in their shares under the American Stock Exchange."

$2 cane payment
Felix Chaudhary
Thursday, January 14, 2016
MIXED reaction have been recorded from sugarcane farmers in the Western Division after Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama announced the Fiji Sugar Corporation would be making an advance payment of $2 per tonne this Friday.

He made the announcement while speaking at the opening of the Labasa market extension, issuance of approval notices for informal settlements and issuance of small and micro enterprise grants in Labasa yesterday.

"Given the recent prolonged drought and the hardships faced by our canefarmers, I am also pleased to announce that this Friday, the Fiji Sugar Corporation will be making an advance payment of $2 per tonne to all canefarmers," the PM said.

"This payment will be deducted from the 3rd and 4th quarter payments.

"What this means is that the tonnage that each farmer delivered to FSC last year multiplied by $2 is the amount that will be paid out this Friday. No deductions will be made from this advance payment."

Rarawai Penang Cane Producers Association president Girish Kumar said the majority of farmers harvested 200 tonnes last year and the advance would not have a significant impact.

"They will receive $400 and while this is appreciated, it will not make much of a difference to low income earning growers," he said.

"At the very least, the payment should have been turned into a grant for the poorest farmers who have been the hardest hit by the prolonged dry weather spell."

This sentiment was also echoed by the Lautoka Cane Producers Association.

"Many of our members are thankful but they also feel that $2 per tonne will not make much of a difference to those who produce 200 tonnes or less," said Lautoka Cane Producers Association president Praveen Singh.

The advance payment comes in the wake of a request from farmers to the Sugar Cane Growers Council for a special cane payment to help with preschool preparations.

Fiji opposition demands Government reveal contents of 'covert' Russian military shipment PACIFIC BEATEARLIER TODAY AT 7:24AM

A shipment containing weapons and ammunition is being delivered to Fiji's military, the opposition says.


Fiji's opposition has called on the Government to reveal the contents of an "unauthorised military shipment" arriving in the capital, Suva, from Russia.

Opposition Whip Ratu Isoa Tikoca, of the Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA), has speculated the shipment contains small arms, ammunition, two trucks and a helicopter.

Mr Tikoca said a private security firm had barred police from inspecting the 20 containers, a claim rejected by the Acting Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho.

Mr Qiliho said Fiji Police gave approval for the consignment and had been part of its planning and reception team.

But Mr Tikoca told Radio Australia's Pacific Beat the operation "has taken the country by surprise".

"The covertness of getting this across without notifying the public, without notifying ... parliament. This is not an issue that was even raised in the committee that looks after foreign affairs and defence," he said.

"We, as taxpayers, know $75 million ($AUD50 million) of our own budget is being used to set up another military camp in the Western Division.

"We've shown our concern that another camp is ... an establishment for the political gain of the existing political leadership, so it's the political army rather than the RFMF [Republic of Fiji Military Forces]."

Last year, Russian media reported Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev had signed a deal with his Fijian counterpart to supply weapons and machines for Fiji's army.

Mr Tikoca said the secrecy surrounding the shipment was suspicious.

"I demand that the Government, the Prime Minister, the Commander of the RFMF open those consignments and reveal what it is," he said.

"We have no enemy as such to be worrying about what sort of number of weapons.

"We belong to a military assistant program that engages Australia, the British, New Zealand, the Americans — we are part and parcel of the security interests of our Pacific region.

"But it looks like the building up of these arms and ammunition could certainly be what the Prime Minister has been trying to do to control the south-west Pacific, specifically controlling the Melanesian Spearhead Group and actually bringing his will over the Pacific Island Forums as well."
Now this is daylight smuggling caught by the public. What about the iligal arms smuggling of Lautoka after the 87 coup which had falsely implicated some civilians. It's the military all along. ...What's Frank trying to do to the US, Britts and Aust? Don't play with fire Frank. How can you tackle the wrath of our big brothers when you don't have the courage to fight a real battle. Let me remind you of the popular local idiom" iko caqeta tiko na mata ni moto"
( you're kicking the sharp end of the spear) and rethink your stand when it comes to diplomatic trade and relationship. Do not do everything that Khaiyum advises you or tries to manipulate you in doing. Can you think on your own and seek second/third opinion. Sa rauta mada na vakamumuri. The Fiji Russia China and India trade and policy agreement is only seen as backstabbing our long lasting friends and allys since the the first and second world wars. Did Russia, China and India save us or fought with us in the 2 wars?

Lote Turaga, chief of Nayarabale in the district of Vaturova, performed a matanigasau to Mr Bainimarama which was confirmed by Commissioner Northern Joseva Vocea.

Mr Vocea said the chief had told the Prime Minister that the villagers opposed the takeover but as time passed, they had begun to see the positive changes taking shape.

“They looked at the many developments and activities the Government has been doing for the people,” Mr Vocea said.

At the expense of the tp's money military had chewed away much of what the country needs for development. Education needs an overhaul. To get quality and healthy education for our children much is needed to be done and money is required. We are still in the third world on our health infrastructure and personnel. Our doctors pay are so minimal and how can we attract professional health caregivers here with advance med technology when the health ministry's budget is not enough. Lack of incentives because there's lack of brain by those running the govt.
Fiji generally needs development and improvement in agriculture(what's happening to sugar cane??),roads and transportation, utilities, welfare, rural living, tourism, etc . Today these developments remain outstanding because military is taking the largest chunk of money to fill their pockets and buy arms and weapons that we don't need. What the military is doing with the purchase of weaponry is only seen as encouraging to fully equipped the institution to carry out strategic and decisive coups on us- the vulnerable civilians not on the battlefield.
Fiji's military is the best equipped force on planet when it comes to combating it's unarmed citizens including women, media personals,pro activists, churches and traditionalists, offenders and adult citizens.

Yep 8.43am
The new uniform is water resistant and can hold water and crap as long as you want. Made of very fine material and special design to withstand climate and condition. Our boys in the military are prone to a quick release of pee and crap like their leader when confronted
in an enemy fire. So the material is just right for that. A little problem though, it cannot hold stench for too long. That's why it attracts flies.
Certainly they all look like a bunch of swarming flies ragtag guerillas in battle.

Newly reinstated Capt. Apimeleki Niumataiwalu who was demoted in early 2015 over work related Anger Issues yesterday mercilessly literally threw his 75-year-old aunt, his late mother’s elder sister Ana Sekoula Niumataiwalu out onto the streets in broad daylight, at his 43 V M Pillay residence in Lautoka, Fiji.

The aged relative is known to have brought her nephew up (born out of wedlock) and solely looked after his primary and secondary tuition fees and stationary in the mid-1970s up to 1983 where Niumataiwalu received the dux prize in high school.

Without this poor lady's struggle to give her nephew the best education she could afford Niumataiwalu wouldn't be where he is right now in the aviation industry.

Capt. Niumataiwalu was demoted after vociferously berating a purser in-flight and in another incident loudly criticizing and rebuking a French expat colleague, again within earshot of cabin crew and alarmed passengers.

Just a month after being reinstated to “command” Niumataiwalu the next of kin threw out his aged mother.

Sadly, her mother is unable to care for herself, her mobility is heavily reliant on her ‘walker” and is basically cognitive impaired and is mostly forcibly confined to her room.

A report has been filed at Lautoka Police Station with an “elderly abuse by neglect and abandonment” tag hovering in the air.

According to reliable sources Capt. Niumataiwalu usually takes his spouse and son out during days-off to resorts leaving his poor mother alone without care.

This is not the first time he has shamelessly conducted this cruel act. 3 ½ years ago he threw her mother out at midnight with all her belongings.

A good Samaritan Laun family, the Drasunas, residing in the neighbourhood kindly took the lady in for 9 months before Capt. Api Niumataiwalu took her back in.

Sadly Capt. Niumataiwalu conveniently masquerades his cruelty and anger issues by disguising himself as a humble gentleman to the public and attending church regularly.

Wednesday night devotions are convened at his residence when he’s on the ground, with his mother under strict orders, to stay in her room and not to come out. Even toilet breaks are withheld until the church members depart after “devotions”.

He is also known to be a wife basher when “he hits the roof”.

Whilst the above could be conveniently and quietly swept under the carpet, or moved to the “it’s his personal business tray”, my question is, in light of the safety of paying passengers and fellow crew members, is this the calibre of pilots being employed by Fiji Airways? We all know Safety is paramount in the aviation environment.

His employers will acknowledge Capt. Niumataiwalu does have an anger issue and will also acknowledge that Niumataiwalu has undergone appropriate anger management counselling but as mentioned above just after month of reinstatement he discards his parent like an object, in anger.

Does the Board and the relevant Ministry’s PS (Public Enterprise) and the relevant line Minister (Hon AG ASK), let alone the media know of such a pilot who's mental state is a safety hazard in their midst?

Could we entrust our lives in such hands when he does not even regard or show compassion to his own mother?

I dread and fear the safety of his passengers when his “episodes” come around if in the air!!!!

God help us!

Na viavialevu kei na dokadoka e sega ni yalo va Kalou!!!!
