Rev Akuila Yabaki and his Citizens Constitutional Forum gave much needed support to the Bainimarama regime in its early days. He made ‘tsk tsk’ noises about the means used by Bainimarama but said his goals were worthy. Now Rev Yabaki is being told his CCF is not needed to educate voters on the ways free and fair elections are held world wide. Frank gives no credit for past collaboration. Rev Yabaki is only one of a long list of collaborators who’ve been tossed aside. Bainimarama probably thinks he should consider himself lucky that he’s not in jail like Driti or on the run like Roko Ului.
