Still looking for puppets

Deputy Commander, iTaukei Affairs Battalion, Colonel Apakuki Kurusiga, has admitted that the regime is still looking for new chairmen for the Ra, Nadroga and Navosa provincial councils. Bainimarama has taken from the Councils their long cherished right to choose their own chairmen, but he is still looking around for nominees who will act as tame puppets, ready to pose for pictures with him, thanking him for allowing them to spend their own money. Bainimarama knows he has to choose carefully. If he chooses people who are supporters of the new SODELPA he’ll look like a fool, but can he avoid choosing a SODELPA supporter – they’re everywhere.
