This is a very superficial analysis from someone who was so close to the events of 1987 and 2000. Talk about living in an ivory tower! Tupeni Baba should have been a towering figure in Fiji, an indigenous person with a real brain. But all along, he's been let down by exuding a sense of being above the fray, not part of it. There's just no passion behind the man, just a steely detachment that makes him come across as uncaring.. It's as if the momentous events in which he was caught up in simply washed over his head. A great disappointment on every count.

Labour Unity Party. The aggrieved person who saw his money go down the drain came to see us to see if these funds might be retrieved in some way. Perhaps it is still not too late?

The New labour Unity Party received funds from Peter Foster but the money was not his: he had allegedly conned it out of a Kiwi friend. Years later this friend, who felt aggrieved sought ways and means to retrieve the sizeable sum. It was Mrs Foster herself who revealed the donation. Not the way in which it was obtained of course.
