Breaking news: landowners receiving rent!

What we love about the Bainimarama propaganda machine is the way it always reveals Frank the Fearful’s nightmares.  So when the propaganda machine cranks out a report about landowners receiving rent, we know landowners are asking him about land.  Accoridng to the propaganda, the rent paid to landowners is all down to “the Committee on Better Utilization of Land initiated by Prime Minister Josaia Voreqe Bainimarama”.  The report doesn’t say that the subsidy is temporary or that the Land Bank gives Bainimarama the right, so long as he’s PM, to do whatever he wants about land.  Unlike the NLTA, it doesn’t tell him he’s got to act in the best interests of the landowners.  It says he should act in the interests of the economy.  Up till now, to keep the sugar industry working the regime has been kicking in money to top rents up to reasonably fair levels.  But once he’s confirmed as PM by winning an election, watch out landowners, the subsidy comes to an end.  Bainimarama has eyes on your land, just as he has eyes on every other asset in the country.  And the Land Bank gives him an iron grip over tenants rights as well.

    Land owners don’t get that NLTB gets that, land owners are the last one to get their cut, that’s why no land owner is a millonare in. Fiji.

  2. Keep The Faith Says:

    More importantly can we break down that Qorvis awe-inspired figure of 33 million into real money ie how much each yavusa, tokatoka, mataqali & yavusa gets until the next pay-out?

  3. Vinaka Chaudry Says:

    much less as everyone gets their share ie equally so each person has enough for a few drinks, night club,,,,,,,and its finished. Yes it was meant to be for petty spending and to undermine the collective actions for greater projects ,,,,,,vinaka voreqe ulukau

    Most Land owners ,mataqali members can’t even buy a packet of cigarette when they receive their cut.This has been happening since the NLTB was established, No. Fijian Leaders has ever looked into this unjust.

    The only place in the world that no land owner is a Millonare is Fiji
