Issues of the Past Haunt Us: PM

Bainimarama face closeFiji needs leaders who are committed to genuine consultation, inclusiveness and accountability and have a progressive vision in moving the country forward, the Prime Minister Commodore told Macuata chiefs and provincial leaders  yesterday, repeating his long-time message that that Fiji's root problem was dirty politicians and racism.

The PM urged provincial leaders to take the lead role in developing the  leadership model spelt out in Pillar 3 of the People’s Charter for Change, Peace and Progress which emphasised  honesty, integrity, professional ethics and service to communities.
 
Me vaka au sa dau tukuna wasoma ka kacivaka talega ni noda leqa naba dua e Viti na draki vakapolitiki e mai tarai keda. O ya na veivakaduiduitaki vaka mata tamata. ("Our biggest problem, as I have stated on a number of times previously, is dirty politics and racial discrimination.")

He said Government depended on genuine leaders who would help take the country forward. Na noda Viti vou ka vinaka e tiko saka ena ligada na veiliutaki ("Our new Fiji is in our hands as leaders.")


He urged Macuata provincial leaders and people to work together to develop the province and adapt to positive changes.

Au gadreva meu vakaraitaka ni sa na levu tikoga mai nai tavi meda qarava e na vuku ni veika vou e sa tara tiko na nodra bula na lewe ni yasana, kei na veika era gadreva me baleta na nodra vakatorocaketaki. Sa dodonu meda na dau yadrava ka raica me cakacakataki ena gauna taudonu  ("I want to tell you that there will be a lot of responsibilities for us to carry out as we move towards developments in the province and what the people need. It is for us to ensure that we carry these responsibilities out and ensure that developments happen when they are supposed to happen.")

The PM was in Macuata to open the Provincial Council meeting.

The last thing our Glorious leader is committed to is genuine consultation and accountability

Please bring out your pinocchio nose.

We can only wait in hope for a return to "genuine consultation, inclusiveness and accountability". With an on-going PER, draconian media censorship and military control of every aspect of Fijian life, it is very likely that it will be many years before we will witness such luxuries again.
However the most immediate impacts of the current situation are the collapsing economy and a disturbing future indeed for our younger generation under this military dictatorship. We can only live in hope that one day we will be free again.

@ Living in hope......

If you are seeking a genuine 'future of liberty' then ensure that you assist in rooting out the robber barons who live on your own doorstep! How do you begin to imagine that a Future of Liberty will be created while the powerful prey on the impoverished and vulnerable? You are deluding yourself. Those who have stolen public money will have to answer for it. Some already are.
