The nice but dreamy Dr Jiko should stick to pulling teeth
Sally Round had an amazing interview with FrankFirst Token Woman and Puppet Party President Jiko Luveni. Dr Jiko shared her thoughts and they are quite something. “I wanted to build in my mind, my dream, a headquarters for women”. That’s right she dreams of her own palace, so she approached a Chinese company for help. They said they would happily sponsor this in return for a fat contract with padded terms and conditions. They told her “they would give us a grant, do it free of charge if they are given a project in Fiji, a big project where they can make a profit of a few million dollars”. Alas for Dr Jiko such fat contracts are in the hands of only two of the FF party mebers, not the token President. But here dreams live on. “But because we were not able to do this, in fact I was in Poland last year, coming back in my mind, I said I just may not win the election and come back but this is a dream that is still on the shelf and I would like to have it happen”. The dreamy Dr Jiko continues with her fantasy, completely unaware that she just mentioned that the Shanghai Construction Company offered her a bribe to get a fat contract without proper process. But thank you Dr Jiko for giving us a clue about what happened with the Chinese built Housing Authority flats in Raiwaqa.
