Ratu Jone Madraiwiwi has had some interesting thoughts on the role and meaning of the Bose Levu Vakaturaga. Our self-appointed dictator who abolished the BLV because they were unelected should have listened carefully to what Ratu Joni said. When Bainimarama abolished the BLV there was what Ratu Joni called ‘a deafening silence’ from the iTaukei community. What Ratu Joni did no need to add, because is loud and clear in the silence from the iTaukei community, is that this arbitrary act will receive its answer in the ballot box.
