Keni Dakuidreketi was guilty of trying to help an NLTB joint venture succeed in upgrading the NLTB computer system so they could actually keep track of rents owed and rents paid and ensure landowners received rent on time. There has been no evidence that he benefited personally from his actions. A range of witnesses testified how he worked hard to take himself from humble beginnings in the village and the hardships he went rhrough to succeed in life. Among the witnesses were two rugby greats, Ilaitia Tuisese and Dan Lobebendahn, but we can be sure that this will mean nothing. Khaiyum has decreed he will go down and that’s all that matters. This election is about nothing if it’s not about justice.
