Not all Fijians are equal

How many times have we been told that in Frank’s Fiji we are all Fijians and we are all equal. If an NGO wants to visit some Fijians, however, it seems they have to have the permission of Government officials. According to iTaukei Affairs Board provincial services division manager Timoci Namotu, any NGO wanting to visit an iTaukei Village must seek approval from the relevant Provincial Council. So it seems that iTaukei are the Natives, some protected species that the Government must protect from foreigners.
