Blatant abuse of office


A Fiji Sun story declaring that the Tikina of Raviravi in Beqa has “switched from supporting SDL” to join the PM’s party proves the blatant abuse of office that Bainimarama thinks will carry him to electoral victory. The PM hasn’t announced a party yet, he certainly hasn’t registered a party but the Fiji Sun says people are switching to support the Bainimarama party. And the proof is a picture of the community surrounded by civil servants and a “district representative”, one Orisi Cagilaba claiming to speak on behalf of the district to say that his people no longer support the SDL but now support the Bainimarama party because of the services that have been provided to the district by the Government. The Fiji Sun says it “is part of the media tour organised by the Ministry of Information that is currently visiting Government projects in the Central Division.”

    Just another example of where people will vote for whomever gives them money, the rest of society be damned.

    Its a money battle. Army being battle trained know this strategy very well. Deprive anyone of the essential of life then that person becomes subservient and servile to the whims of the provider. This is the battle line the regime is using with a degree of success. First deprive them of money then offer to provide it with strings attached which is what we are witnessing all over the country with bai doing the honors.

    The regime’s Political Parties Decree is very clear
    “14.—(1) A public officer shall not—(c) engage in political activity that may compromise or be seen to compromise the political neutrality of that person’s office; or(d) publicly indicate support for or opposition to any proposed political party or a political party registered under this Decree or candidate in an election”.
    All of the civil servants shown in this picture and associated with this story have breached the Political Parties Decree.
    The Bainimarama rule is clear: one rule for me another for everybody else.

    He he never trust a Rewan,,,& this brings into question these chiefs and kaivitis who publicly declare their support for Frank when they host him at the opening of a completed govt project (ie bribery),,,,,do they really support him or are they taking him for a ride like the Rewans did to the SVT in the 90s where they crowded the SVT sheds, ate the food, drank the kava etc etc and voted for Butadroka….
    Are these Rewans now taking Frank on a similar ride they did to Vunibobo???
    Below letter was in response to Nakorovou villagers of Rewa showing support for frank when their flood gate project was opened:

    Jese Luveni

    I refer to your article in the Fiji Sun today, 15/5 attributed to Jolame Namalo, purported spokesperson for the village of Nakorovou Rewa supporting Bainimarama and calling on Roko Tui Dreketi to quit politics.
    This needs to be corrected. The truth is Jolame Namalo is a supporter of the new SODELPA for which he signed its registration as number 878 under registration number 0143-369-00300. Eighty-six other villagers of Nakorovou signed with him the registration of this new party including his close family members.
    Again he knows full well that a number of villagers supported the Marama Roko Tui Dreketi political ambition and joined her delegation that presented her petition on the draft constitution to Government.
    Therefore his and so-called village support for Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama and his Government is selfishly motivated, simply for development sake.
    Jolame should be reminded that Government will provide development assistance to all Fijians irrespective of political persuasion in an honest and transparent manner depending on need and not to mislead Government as Jolame think.
