Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On


Allen Lockington is a self-employed customs agent and business consultant who has regular articles published in Fiji. I thank Allen for permission to reprint some of them in this political blog. They remind us that life goes on, whatever the political situation. And it's good to know that.

Reduce Pot Bellies — Walk

Police Commissioner Brigadier-General Ioane Naivalurua has directed his men to walk five kilometres every day for the sake of a healthy police force. Five kilometers may sound like it was impossible. Five kilometers is equal to 3.1 miles. The distance from the Lautoka police station to the Navutu round about is 2 kilometers. A walk to and back will be 4 kilometers and that could be just enough.

Anyway there are too many pot bellies in the police force.

We have exercise stations along marine Drive in Lautoka, which is excellent but there is one flaw – the machines are made for people more than six feet tall.

But what a wonderful idea.

There has been no excuse for the level of invisibility on the streets of Fiji of our Police. The Police Officer (male or female) has simply not been seen where they must be: on the street, IN PAIRS, patrolling and interacting with the populace. This populace pays their wages and salaries. Have they not fully understood this, all the years of their absence?

So, walking is part and parcel of their Job Description. We shall look forward to seeing them fitter and slimmer and interested in us: the Community.
