Sitiveni Raturala of the Office of the Prime Minister has declared that all iTaukei land is safe. Under the Constitution it cannot be sold to anyone so it must be safe. What Raturala doesn’t say is that the Constitution allows for iTaukei land to leased for a thousand years at $1 a year if that is what the Government of the day chooses to do. It cannot be sold, but there are no restrictions on leasing it. But we should thank Raturala for revealing that the regime is worried about land. Bainimarama knows that his changes have angered landowners who know they were never consulted.
