A parable of our times

The engineer’s report on the collapse of the deck at the Mai Kana restaurant reads like a parable of the Bainikhaiyum regime. A rotten structure that could not stand – made of untreated wood that was bound to rot (like a Government made of unelected people). How did the Nadi Council under the regime’s Administrator approve it? It seems investment is so hard to come by the regime lackeys put their rubber stamps on it because it was investment at a time when real investors are hard to find. The image of business owners and journalists attending a function organised by the Nadi Chamber of Commerce and Industry plunging into the Nadi river tells the story of this regime. A rotten structure that is doomed to collapse. Regime appointed Nadi town boss, Robin Ali, said the restaurant was operating without a licence but he needs to answer how this is possible? Where were his inspectors between when the deck went up and when the wood rotted? How quick does wood rot in Nadi? Overnight?
