Did Ratu Epeli’s message have something for Frank?

When the President gave a speech telling of the moral courage of former South African President Nelson Mandela he was indirectly making a comparison with out own self-appointed leader. When Mandela was released from prison he did not set out to punish his opponents. Instead he was quick to embrace the people who had imprisoned him and to bring the nation together. Bainimarama, by contrast, takes every opportunity to punish everyone he thinks might have wronged him or supported the government he overthrew by force. Even though Laisenia Qarase had been elected PM, Bainimarama denied him the pension belonging to the office of PM. His only answer to every problem is to punish anyone who dares to disagree with him. We need our own Mandela in place of the second-rate Mugabe imitation who is still turning us into the Zimbabwe of the Pacific.

Fiji Sun December 16, 2013 Fijians ‘can learn much from Madiba’

  1. Keep The Faith Says:

    It was sheer sacrilege and a slur on everything Madiba fought and sacrificed himself for to see these illegal and treasonous thugs using the occasion at Centenary for their own election campaigning ends. Clearly a very desperate measure.

  2. Aunty Nur Says:

    Uncle Epeli was just pretending to be a statesman. All leaders of the free world held such speeches, so he felt compelled to do the same. He conveniently forgot that he is part of a human rights abusing junta which Mandela would have fought to his dearth.

  3. Paula Says:

    Imagine there was someone in Fiji with balls only half the size of Mandela’s? Would this old, drunk thug Epeli be able to speak on behalf of the people of Fiji? Certainly not. We just do not have this kind of men, we have lamusona cowards like Driti and Mara who would shit themselves when they had the chance to remove the thugs from power.
