Fiji Sun’s pure BS on Bainimarama’s land policy

According to the Fiji Sun, before the changes made by Bainimarama to the distribution of the iTaukei land rents, Sawani Savai of Veisaru in Ba lived in poverty. After the changes he’s rolling in wealth. He “owns a tractor, a carrier van, a house, a 10-acre farm which he owns and plants sugarcane on and another 14-acre farm where he does share farming with the landowner.” The Sun doesn’t explain why he’s share farming with the landowner, when he IS a landowner. Nor does it explain how much rent is received by the mataqali and how much land it owns, or how many other landowners share the rent received. In short: no facts, just pure BS.
