In 2009 our Minister for Sugar launched a new variety of sugar cane called Kiuva. It was so important that he had to grant it the name Kiuva and he said it would largely replace the dominant ‘Mana’ variety in Viti levu. Five years later the ‘Mana’ variety is still going strong so the all conquering Minister Sugar has released two new varieties, Qamea and Viwa. So where is the Kiuva? Bainimarama’s speech at the launch of Kiuva makes good reading now, as he sang its praises reading all the words put in front of him by puppet masters who have thrived under his incompetent management.
