Dictator misses his registration deadline
With a great fanfare in Lau, FIJI'S DICTATOR, Bainimarama, announced he would register his party on 22 April. That day has passed by and no sign of a registration. Another missed deadline by Bainimarama.
If SODELPA, FLP and NFP had delayed their registration by just one day they would have been de-registered. Bainimarama has delayed his registration and there is no consequence. Another case of - ONE law for Bainimarama another law for the rest.
Confirming the news to FijiLive.com, the dictator said he was still compiling his list of required signatures.
He needs 5000 signatures to register his proposed party – 2,000 from the central division, 1,750 from the western division, 1,000 from the northern division and a 250 from the eastern division.
Bainimarama stated he was “still consolidating list of registered names and awaiting for forms from the islands.”
Fiji's fraudulent general elections - to save a corrupt, lying dictator and his parasitic group of corrupt family and friends
Fiji's dictator is desperate to win the elections and to stay in power or it will mean certain arrest and imprisonment for him and his group of corrupt, parasitic friends and family.
Therefore, his illegal and megalomaniac AG, Khaiyum, has been working the system through his corrupt judiciary, illegal decrees, puppet electoral Commission, and his unqualified and inexperienced Supervisor of Elections who has not voted before in any general elections, to rig the elections in the dictator's favour.
On September 17, 2014, if elections do take place, voters will be given a fresh booklet of the candidate list, says Saneem, the Supervisor of Elections. Does this mean that the information in the "fresh" booklet will be altered and different to what voters receive prior to elections day? Not sure?! BUT, if it is different then the electoral decree gives the supervisor of elections immunity from prosecution for any fraudulent activity on his part or by his office.
With only one day scheduled for elections, will the polling booths be held up deliberately by the dictator's supporters to stop others from being able to cast their vote for other parties? This is possible given Saneem's statement that “No time limit will be given to voters to cast their vote. We are not going to pressure anybody to quickly vote.”
The list of candidates – where each electoral candidate will be assigned a number, will be made public at least two weeks before September 17. It will be an B5 size, which is half of an A4 sheet. This means that each candidate and their party will have only two weeks to promote their assigned numbers to voters in over 1000 communities across remote and isolated areas located across 108 islands. The dictator, however, has illegally been promoting himself and campaigning for over 3 years using taxpayers funds and he also has control over the media.
Saneem also says that the ballot boxes to be used in the general election are of international standard and will have uniquely numbered tags. But who cares. It's just a box with a tag! What matters is how the ballot box will actually be handled between the polling station and arriving at the counting centre. Then there is the issue of the ballot paper and the counting process and transparency.....
"On-the-way" offers many opportunities for fraud. Will the same box that left the polling station with its multiple tags be the same box to arrive at the counting centre? Or will it be swapped or tampered with on-the-way? Independent observers need to be on hand to ensure this risk is reduced! The Fiji police and military can not be trusted to do this task correctly. They still haven't arrested the dictator for treason, murder, sedition and corruption! But can NZ observers be trusted, given the Foreign Minister McCully's eagerness to support the dictator. Sources in the military also said that many international observers in 2006 seemed more focused on having a good time in the islands.......hmmmmm
Then there is the case of lying. Bainimarama and his puppet master Khaiyum, have lied to the people of Fiji so many times and broken all their promises, so how will the elections be any different. Especially when both their criminal lives depend on the outcome of the votes going in their favour! So when the Supervisor of Elections, Saneem, says that there would be no spare seals given to any polling station or presiding officer, can we believe him? NOT LIKELY!!
McCully rewards Fiji's lying, corrupt dictator
Fijivillage.com reports that New Zealand’s Foreign Minister Murray McCully said NGOs and opposition parties that continue to criticize NZ for assisting the Fijian government to move forward and have elections should ask themselves whether the continuous criticisms are helping anyone.
While speaking to Fijivillage, McCully stressed that the NZ government has decided [based on his advice] that the best way forward is to assist Fiji in the preparations for the general election on September 17th.
He said there has been so much progress already and this needs to be acknowledged. What a load of rubbish!
McCully said the progress that he has noticed since January this year include:
This all strongly suggests that McCully is not a leader and nor is he the brightest spark in the New Zealand Government.
We did support the NZ National Party, but not any more. At least, not while McCully and Keys are still a part of the National party.
Bainimarama - Fiji's First Criminal PM
NZ's PM and Foreign Minister suggest illegal acts by Fiji's two leading criminals all part of holding Free and Fair elections
Fiji's two leading criminals, the dictator and self-appointed PM, self-appointed Rear Admiral and self-appointed Finance Minister, etc, Bainimarama, and his puppet master Khaiyum act above the law. But everyone else [who are not a part of their family or friends] must obey the illegal decrees that were forced onto them by those two criminals.
What is also amazing, is that New Zealand's PM John Keys and his Foreign Minister McCully, suggest that these illegal acts by Fiji's two leading criminals are all part of holding Free and Fair elections. Unbelievable! What incompetent bloody wonders!!
FijiVillage reported [29 March 2014] that Fiji's megalomaniac Attorney General, Khaiyum, stated that any person who is holding public office, including civil servants and trade unionists, found taking part in political campaigns and electoral activity, will now be fined or even imprisoned. Khaiyum said this after two amendments were made to the Political Parties Registration decree.
Please note that Civil servants include the Prime Minister and Attorney General.
On Sunday March 30th 2014, Mick Beddoes lodged a formal complaint with the Sabeto Police. The complaint is against the dictator Bainimarama, the Fiji Sun, Dr Luveni, Razor, CJ Patel, Fiji Village and FBCL for breaching Part II of the provisions of the Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Decree No 4 of 2013.
3 (1) An association of persons or an organization shall not operate, function, represent or hold itself out to be a political party unless it has been registered as a political party in accordance with the provisions of this decree.
(2) If any association of persons or an organization operate, function, represent or hold itself out to be a political party without being registered in accordance with the provisions of this decree, then any person who is a member of or holds office in any such association or organization commits an offence and shall be liable upon conviction to a fine of $50,000 or a term of imprisonment not exceeding 5 years or both.
Now we await the Fiji Police to arrest these criminals who are in breach of Part II of the provisions of the Political Parties (Registration, Conduct, Funding and Disclosures) Decree No 4 of 2013.
Bainimarama - Fiji's most corrupt PM
NZ'S Foreign Minister, McCully, continues to lie to NZ Public and to Government that Fiji will hold free and fair elections
How's this for incompetent regional leadership? NZ's PM John Keys says Fiji will hold Free and Fair elections, even though the facts are plain to see.
Seems like PM Keys is content to deliberately ignore the facts about Fiji's corrupt and fraud riddled upcoming general elections process that NO New Zealander would accept in a NZ general election.
Khaiyum shows his nasty breed, yet again
VICTOR LAL reports that the ILLEGAL MINISTER FOR ELECTIONS & A-G, KHAIYUM, HAS VIOLATED HIS OWN POLITICAL PARTIES DECREE NO 4 (2013) BY EXTENDING THE DOMAIN NAME IN JANUARY 2014 & ADDING THE E-MAIL ADDRESS AS FIJIFIRST2014@GMAIL.COM WHEN THE PROPOSED FIJIFIRST PARTY IS YET TO BE REGISTERED & APPROVED!

Increase Poverty and Unemployment by voting for the lying, corrupt dictator Bainimarama
Bainimarama Cheats - uses the country's resources for his Personal campaign - Is he the type of person you want running our country!
by Shazzer & Grubby
The Ministry of Information would never break the law and overtly campaign for the Minister of Information Bainimarama.
We all know they would but they would deny that claim. But what they can't deny is that their pictures are being used by Bainimarama for campaign purposes.

Hey Bainimarama, tell the truth
Kerosene and water, mixing slowly: the internal racisms
Professor Wadan Narsey writes a personal view on racism in Fiji and highlights the racial dynamics a lot of us would have experienced in some form or another. A great read!
Kerosene and water, mixing slowly: the internal racisms (a personal view)
Professor Wadan Narsey
9 April 2014
“You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you will see clearly enough to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” (Mathew 7:5)
This is the third part of an article which began with the MIDA incident, premised on the allegation that Vesikula’s “kerosene and water don’t mix” statement was an expression of racism or “hate speech” against Indo-Fijians.
[Part I of the article pointed out that raising concerns about indigenous people lagging behind systematically, such as in education and commerce, and calling for Affirmative Action was not racism. Part II of the earlier article focused on the mutual prejudices or racism of Indo-Fijians and Fijians.]
This article, drawing on my own personal experience over the years, focuses on the many internal racisms, which might equally be described by Vesikula’s metaphor “kerosene does not mix with water” and his statement “race is a fact of life”.
I suggest, that on the contrary, both are being eroded as Fiji moves towards a multi-racial society, pushed along by the young folk especially, and the forces of globalization.
I conclude by suggesting that Fiji’s political leaders can either destructively perceive our multicultural diversity as “forces that divide us” (as our political dinosaurs have in the past), or they can constructively use the diversity as a wonderful asset that can enrich our lives, both spiritually and materially (as in the tourism industry).
I first cast stones in my own family glass house, which not only illustrates the racism of Gujarati against Hindustani (i.e. “non-Gujarati Indo-Fijians”), but also the great progress made within just one generation, of racial barriers breaking down, holding much hope for Fiji’s future.
Bainimarama ruined Fiji and wants to fool people into voting for him
Fiji’s dictator, Bainimarama, and self-appointed Prime Minister and self-appointed REAR-Admiral is awarded yet another new title. But this time its awarded by the FIJI SUN – calling the dictator MR SIMPLE.
Mr Simple [Bainimarama] who has lied to the people since the May 2000 coup is now desperate to remain in power or it will mean prison for him and his corrupt bunch of greedy parasitic supporters that include Khaiyum and his father and brother and their families, Shameem sisters, Vodafone, CJ Patel, Tappoo, Solanki, Punjas, and the more than 30 unqualified military officers and civilians who have been appointed to senior government roles. There are others who linger in the shadows. They are all dependent on the dictator retaining power and control over Fiji and it’s resources so that they can continue to rob Fiji like CJ Patel and its illegal acquisition of Rewa Dairy.
So Bainimarama is trying desperately to fool the less educated of our people into thinking that he cares about them and to vote for him. Meanwhile, Bainimarama and his puppet master Khaiyum, have driven Fiji to its:
Be warned - the reality is that once Bainimarama is elected [God forbid], by hook or by crook, a worse evil will be released over Fiji.
Dictator breaches his own Political Parties Decree AND steals the "Fiji First" party name
See FijiLeaks - The leader [Anit Singh] of the real FIJI FIRST PARTY fights back as dictator Bainimarama steals Fiji First Party name. Party leader, Singh, insists the FFP exists and is weighing its legal options!
Prof Narsey explains Fiji's voting nightmare
PROFESSOR WADAN NARSEY looks at the ELECTORAL DECREE 2014 (DECREE NO. 11 OF 2014), suggesting that voting will be a nightmare for voters.
This, as we all know by now, is just another trick by Bainimarama and Khaiyum aimed at confusing voters as part of their "free and Fair" election to rig the election results in Bainimarama's favour. Unfortunately, these illegal and devious acts are supported by New Zealand's Foreign Minister, Murray McCully, who has been telling New Zealand parliament that Fiji will have Free and Fair elections - yeah right!
Prof Narsey explains that there will be one national constituency to elect 50 parliamentarians. However, before the Decree was issued, Bainimarama had stated on his campaign trail that voters will choose from 250 candidates from five political parties (presumably with each party putting forward 50 candidates).
But the Schedule at the end of the Electoral Decree 2014 indicates the possibility of 280 candidates (presumably also allowing for 30 Independents). This means, writes Prof Narsey, that each voter will face one massive ballot paper, with 280 squares. Each square will have a number and the name and photo of the candidate, with the illegal Decree saying nothing about a party symbol to go with the candidate. Each candidate will be issued with a number, randomly selected between 135 and 414.
In the polling booth, the voter will have to identify their preferred candidate, and circle, tick or cross that one square with their preferred candidate, out of the 280 squares.
Prof Narsey explains the voting nightmare.
There are hundreds of thousands of voters throughout Fiji, who may have great difficulty in finding their preferred candidate on such a large ballot paper with 280 names and numbers. In this case some political parties or candidates might quite sensibly think that they could help their supporters getting them to take a small piece of paper with the number of their preferred candidate written down.
But sorry, Section 52 (2) of the Electoral Decree states:
“It shall be unlawful for any person to bring into a polling station or polling venue any type of paper or any specimen or sample of a ballot paper or any card or instruction on how to vote.”
Section 52 (3) then warns voters,
“If the Supervisor or presiding officer has reasonable suspicion that a voter is in breach of subsection (2), he or she may request the assistance of a police officer to search the voter, and it shall be lawful for a police officer to take such measures as necessary to conduct a search of the voter.”
A decent law-abiding citizen of this country, exercising his or her right to make an informed choice in the election by taking a piece of paper into the polling booth to help him or her to vote, can be searched, on suspicion, like a common criminal?
AND FURTHERMORE, if any such material is found on them, Section 52 (4) further warns,
“Any person who contravenes this section commits an offence and shall be liable upon conviction to a fine not exceeding $50,000 or to a term of imprisonment not exceeding 10 years or to both.
What sort of serious crime does Fiji’s justice system hand out such horrendous punishment?
The contemptuous charade continues
But we should not be surprised any more by this Bainimarama/Khaiyum Regime’s antics.
For this is an unelected military dictatorship, which removed a lawfully elected government in 2006, and ruled us without our permission and without anyone voting for them, for eight whole years.
They have unilaterally imposed unlawful decree after decree on us, culminating in the 2013 Bainimarama/Khaiyum Constitution, which promises them and their collaborators, total immunity for any crime they may have committed from 2000 to elections in 2014.
But they threaten decent law-abiding voters [YOU] that if they innocently take a piece of paper into the polling booth to help them vote for their preferred candidate for the first time in eight years, they may be fined $50,000 and jailed for 10 years.
It would be a joke, if it was not such a nightmare.
This Regime has ignored all recommendations from political parties and the general public for far more sensible, understandable, and workable proportional electoral systems (such as local constituencies with a small number of candidates, who voters could easily identify with and choose from).
Instead, through the advice of a secret scheming cabal of shadowy collaborators, this Bainimarama Regime has thrust this electoral nightmare on our people through this Electoral Decree 2014.
All that the freedom loving people of Fiji and other political parties can do is grit their teeth and see where peaceful participation in this pathetic electoral charade takes them.
Addendum: some sick jokes
Joke 1: what if voters simply write their candidate’s number on some hidden part of their body, which they can look at, inside the privacy of the polling booth? Will all voters be strip-searched by the police?
There are lots of other sick jokes in the 2014 Electoral Decree.
Joke 2 : from the Decree, section 115 states:
Restrictions on campaigns
115.—(1) Following the announcement of the date of the election, it shall be unlawful for any person, entity or organisation (including any person employed or engaged by any such person, entity or organisation) that receives any funding or assistance from a foreign government, inter-governmental or non-governmental organisation or multilateral agency to engage in, participate in or conduct any campaign (including organising debates, public forum, meetings, interviews, panel discussions, or publishing any material) that is related to the election or any election issue or matter.
Not only can CFF, FWRM, WCC, and other NGOs forget these educational activities after the announcement of the date of elections, but so also can The University of the South Pacific, which is partly funded by “foreign governments” (no doubt to the relief of their Vice Chancellor and Chairman of Council).
Section 63 (2) (d) states that in the In the 48 hour period prior to polling day and on the polling day until the close of polling at all polling stations, it is strictly prohibited for any person to–
”distribute in any manner (including through telephone, internet, email, social media or other electronic means) any campaign material or communicate political messages, including calls to vote for or against a particular political party or candidate in the election.
Does this Decree effectively give the Bainimarama Regime the draconian authority to monitor all our phone calls, emails, and Internet usage, and conduct electronic surveillance on citizens that infringes on their basic human right to privacy?
Section 113 Prohibition on use of State resources to campaign
(1) It shall be unlawful to use State authority, including law and tax enforcement authorities, to pressure or intimidate political opposition.
(2) It shall be unlawful for any public officer to conduct campaign activities.
But of course, there is some Decree which states that Bainimarama and his other unelected Ministers are not “public officers”, and they will be allowed to remain in office, handing out goodies all around the country (of course, not buying any votes) and maligning any “old politician” they want (except those in his own gang).
Section 27 (2) the nomination of an independent candidate is not valid unless it is accompanied by
(b) signatures of at least 1,000 registered voters as supporters; and
(c) ) contain the full names, residential addresses, occupation and voter numbers of the supporters.
So for poor Independent candidates, forget the principle of the “secrecy of the ballot box” and who are going to vote for you. The Regime and other political parties will know exactly who are your supporters, who they can target in whatever way they want.
Just as they can target the 5000 persons who sign up as “supporters” of political parties.
It's NOT a free and fair election when the dictator does not need to follow the rules
Fiji's corrupt, lying dictator, Voreqe Bainimarama, will take official leave as illegal Prime Minister to officially begin campaigning for his newly named Fiji First Party that is not even registered!
The dictator, however, has been campaigning across the country for the past seven years while other political parties have been "caged" behind Khaiyum's illegal decrees and Bainimarama's brutal military thugs who have been intimidating and beating up anyone and everyone who speaks the truth about Bainimarama and his megalomaniac puppet master.
Now the dictator attempts to fool the people of Fiji with his speech saying that “Whether you be a commoner or a chief; a shop keeper or a consumer; a landowner or a farmer; an office worker or a labourer; a woman or a man; a pensioner or a youth; a city dweller or someone living in our maritime or rural areas. We have to travel together to become the pride of the Pacific and the world. I need you all…all Fijians to come with me on this journey, I need you to believe in my goal for a united Fiji; a honest Fiji; a corrupt free Fiji.” What a f#&kin load of bullshit!
Bainimarama and Khaiyum have NOT DONE anything honest or corrupt free since December 2006! This clearly implies that Bainimarama thinks that Fijians are STUPID and can easily be fooled by his lies and free gifts of sewing machines, brush-cutters and other goodies. Meanwhile, Bainimarama and his puppet master loot Fiji of its wealth, steal native lands, pay themselves multiple salaries, insult native Fijian culture and tradition and their Lord Jesus Christ!
Bainimarama also said that You and your families will have a better future, when in reality the country has experienced its worse economic results under Bainimarama and Khaiyum's corrupt dictatorship. So how can it be a better future with Bainimarama? - It wont be a better future under Bainimarama!
The dic also said:.......
.... the work he and his fellow [corrupt] Fijians cannot be completed without you [the people, whom he has ignored and lied too for over 7 years] coming along with him on this journey [which is to save himself from being arrested and from going to prison for his crimes of treason, sedition, murder, rape and corruption]
….we all need to put Fiji first…[yes we do and voting for Bainimarama is NOT going to do that]
....his proposed Fiji First party needs you [the people to keep them in power and stealing Fiji's wealth, and lands, etc]
....he says that no longer do the interests of a select few come before what is good for all Fijians. BULLSHIT! [Bainimarama has replaced the democratically elected leaders with his bunch of greedy, lying corrupt bunch of thieves, friends and relatives]
We must put Fiji first. [ Bainimarama has never put Fiji first, never since he became Commander of the RFMF and not even, given his record, since he was farted out at birth!]
The dictator also said that he will take leave from work and begin his journey on the bus to meet everyday Fijians like you…[he has already done this using taxpayers funds]. Satan will be so proud of this lying, corrupt dictator who committed treason, sedition, murder, rape and theft of native lands and even insulted the Lord Jesus Christ on Holy Easter Sunday, 2013.
Vote Fiji First Party for More Nepotism
From Shazzer & Grubby
NEPOTISM is at the heart of the Bainimarama Government & Party.
His brother WITH NO EXPERIENCE is High Commissioner to Malaysia.
His daughter, Litiana, WITH NO EXPERIENCE is CEO of The Fiji Sports Council
His daughter, Rubyann, WITH NO EXPERIENCE is Manager of the National Net Ball Team
His brother in law, Francis KILLER Kean:
FRANK HIMSELF LIKES A FEW PERKS.
KRAIYUM PAYS is also keen on looking after his family.
Brother Riyaz, runs FBC the propaganda arm of the regime.
Aunty Nur Bano Ali
NEPOTISM IS OUR FIJI FIRST PARTY POLICY
Regime's political enforcer Mohammed Saneem appointed new Supervisor of Elections without the 15 year experience!
Fiji's 2014 General Elections set to take place on 17 September.
The illegal AG Khaiyum also announced that Mohammed Saneem was appointed Supervisor of Elections and has resigned from his positions as Permanent Secretary for Justice and acting Permanent Secretary Responsible for Elections to take up his new post on Monday. The new Electoral Decree was also released.
The illegal Attorney-General and Minister Responsible for Elections and for ruining Fiji's economy, Khaiyum, appointed Saneem over other more qualified and more experienced applicants. There were 13 qualified applicants which the illegal AG determined unfit, no doubt because they would most likely not accept his interference and corrupt directives to "rig" the elections in Bainimarama's favour.
Remember that Bainimarama was also appointed Commander of the RFMF in a similar and corrupt manner. Ratu Epeli Ganilau appointed Bainimarama as the Commander over more senior, more qualified and more experienced military army officers. Ratu Epeli Ganilau did this without the prior approval of the Commander in Chief and President, Ratu Sir KKT Mara. However, Paul Manueli was gladly accepted the nomination as he was also advising that "group of plotters' attempting to usurp power in Fiji since their first 1987 coup attempt.
Khaiyum's actions only reinforces what we already know, that the rule of law does not apply in Fiji, and that Khaiyum writes decrees that neither he nor Bainimarama or their family and friends can ignore. Appointing people who will adhere to his corrupt directives and see, hear and speak no evil about Khaiyum's corrupt actions is what Khaiyum wants. So it is safe to conclude that a similar fate awaits the 2014 elections.
Its obvious the only true leader in Fiji is a women, Ro Temumu Kepa, brave enough to stand-up against the stupid bainimarama and his thugs who are holding Fiji hostage. And what so will the people of Fiji be willing to do when the 2014 elections are rigged? What then? Will they fall back to more gossip and bitching and in the process allow the oppressive and corrupt dictatorship to continue, or will they finally stand-up and say "enough is enough"?!
Bainimarama breaks another of his promises to the people of Fiji - that no interim minister can stand for elections
Fiji's dictator and self-appointed prime minister, minister of finance, etc and self-promoted Rear admiral, Frank Bainimarama, announced to the world that the Minister of Women’s Affairs and Social Welfare, Dr Jiko Luveni, would run with him in Fiji's 2014 Elections.
However, in 2007 he stated that No interim Minister in his military Government would stand for elections. This is just another broken promise he has made to the people of Fiji. It also shows that Bainimarama is nothing more than a liar, sweet talking his way into fooling the people of Fiji into believing that he was doing a good thing for Fiji. What a load of rubbish!
The events and actions that have come to pass since December 2006 have shown that Bainimarama is all about lying to the people of Fiji to support him, while he loots the nation of its wealth and resources, receives for his corrupt family and friends.
Fiji Electoral Commission are a waste of space
Rear Admiral not running the country
Its interesting to hear many people talk about the 2014 elections as if it will solve Fiji's current crisis with its dictator. They seem to think that the elections, if held, will be as simple as the wining party taking over control of the country from the dictator, Bainimarama, and his megalomaniac puppet master and their group of corrupt families and friends.
That the dictator and his puppet master, Khaiyum, will just simply step aside and give up all that power and control over Fiji and its wealth, which they have been looting since 2007. That they will just simply give up their multiple salaries, their high life, all the bribes and free-rides, their multiple properties and the millions they steal from the cheap Chinese loans. That they will simply give this all up and not worry about the risk of going to prison for life because they have immunity from prosecution for their crimes of treason, sedition, murder, corruption, torture, nepotism and theft of native lands. WRONG! By crook or by coup they will retain power post elections!
The puppet dictator, Bainimarama, is already out and about campaigning while political parties are being held back awaiting the elusive electoral decree.
Bainimarama CHEATS to get ahead
FBC News reports that the elusive Election Decree will spell out procedures for the election.
Senior Elections Official, Asenaca Kolinivala, told ,Gold FM’s Talkback Show, “The decree will dictate whether you’re going to tick or whether you’re going to write a number of something like that. All those processes will come out in the decree. We don’t know what’s there but possibly might take one minute."
The decree is expected to be released sometime this week, however, the illegal PM who has been holding Fiji hostage since December 2006 has been out campaigning for votes while other political parties await the election rules. Not forgetting the hurdles that they political parties had to overcome just to get registered as the megalomaniac and illegal AG, Khaiyum, applied all sorts of tricks and lies to remove political parties from standing at this years 2014 general elections. His latest trick has been to withhold the Election Decree while his puppet, Bainimarama, campaigns ahead of forming and registering his party.
Under Bainimarama's better Fiji, the rules and laws apply only to law abiding citizens. Corrupt, lying, criminal dictators and their greedy corrupt family and friends can do whatever they want, however they want and whenever they want - for a fee.
Fiji's PAC dissolved to hide corruption
Fiji’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) has been dissolved by the illegal AG after hard questions were asked by PAC members.
The Public Accounts Committee (PAC), which is the Committee of Public Accounts, is a select committee responsible for overseeing government expenditures to ensure they are effective and honest. It plays a crucial role in ensuring transparency and accountability in all government financial operations.
PAC examines the Accounts showing the appropriation of sums granted by Parliament to meet the Public Expenditure.
However, in Fiji, under the corrupt, lying dictatorship, this key select committee was dissolved to hide the truth about Bainimarama and Khaiyum’s illegal appropriation and expenditure of public funds. This includes:
Dictator reportedly suffered another heart attack
FijiLeaks reports that the corrupt, lying, criminal dictator Bainimarama has suffered another heart attack.
Dictator recruits his party members
Dictator insults memory of brave soldiers from the 'Malayan campaign'
National Youth Party leadership accuses Shazzer & Grubby of not respecting Fijians - yeah right!
It was unbelievable to read that the National Youth Party had accused Shazzer & Grubby of not respecting Fijians. What a load of rubbish!
This accusation is so far from the truth that it questions the intelligence and motives of the the party leadership! They [the National Youth Party Leadership] told S&G they were going to cut them off their List. Isa, really?
This issue highlights a problem with the quality and maturity of some of the so-called leaders in Fiji, in particular those fake leaders that like the "stage" and/or like to talk or just like to "fancy". They do so without first understanding the issues and thus miss-inform and miss-lead their members and followers! This type of leader is dangerous for any party. What the party needs to do is to identify and understand what hidden talents each of their members have and than organise those "talents" into a viable source of knowledge and skill set to ensure they and the party are getting the best value from their total resources and their leadership. Especially during this sad time in Fiji's history when Fijians are being cheated and lied to by a sly dictator, Bainimarama, who is holding the nation hostage and running from the law to save his own ass from being arrested and from being thrown into prison!
In its 2009 manifesto, the National Youth Party included free bus fare for both Primary and Secondary school students. Then they thank the dictator Bainimarama for implementing this in 2011. This is incorrect! It's not free bus fare - its "subsidised" bus fare! This is the type of miss-leading information being told to Fijians.
It's also not free education! It's only free tuition, big difference! The parents, a lot of whom are unemployed and live in poverty, still have to find money to pay for school text books, pens, uniforms, calculators, shoes, rulers, erasers, bags, field trips and everything else their child needs to be educated. So its not free education, its only free tuition - a big difference!
The corrupt, lying bainimarama dictatorship wants our people to believe that they are providing free education and free bus fair. Its NOT all free, but Bainimarama keeps saying that it is all free to fool the innocent and less educated of our people into thinking that he is helping them. Rubbish! Even mother nature showed that those fancy new roads were fake - not the quality that we would expect at $3 million a kilometre!
Bainimarama lied to us and mother nature proved it, easily washing the roads away to reveal the cheap workmanship that cost the Fijian people 100's of millions of dollars.
Yes, its very expensive roads at $3 million per kilometre - for a graded piece of dirt covered with less that an inch of tar-seal. What a rip-off! It also highlights the incompetence of the Minister responsible for roads. This is also why Bainimarama is hiding the Auditor General Reports from the Fijian people - to cover up his corruption and lies!
The false claims of everything free and providing "basic services" is all part of the corrupt dictatorship propaganda - which the National Youth Party appears to be supporting and sounds to be rather pro-dictatorship. A dictatorship that is holding the nation hostage, where Fijian people are living under oppression, with high unemployment, high cost of living, high poverty, high crime, etc. This is what the bainimarama dictatorship has given to the Fijian people! Shazzer & Grubby has been highlighting this corruption for the Fijian people to see. Unfortunately, those leaders of the National Youth Party where unable to understand this simple fact --so maybe its time that its 5000 members re-look at the quality and maturity of their leadership.
Okay, so you get my drift.....hmmmmm
Anyway, Shazzer & Grubby aptly responded to the National Youth Party accusation, which caused them to remove their Post. This was Shazzer & Grubby's response:
I respect many Fijians. However there are a number who DON’T deserve respect and so I DON’T respect them. Let me tell you why.
I DON’T respect Fijians who lie to the People of Fiji.
I DON’T respect Fijians who cheat the People of Fiji.
I DON’T respect Fijians who condone violence against other Fijians
I DON’T respect Fijians who censor the Press.
I DON’T respect Fijians who abuse my Human Rights.
I DON’T respect Fijians who force a new constitution on the people f Fiji without consultation.
I DON’T respect Fijians who carry out coups.
I DON’T respect Fijians who manipulate the electoral Process for their own advantage.
I DON’T respect Fijians who just accept the crimes their leaders commit.
I DO respect Fijians who believe in Democracy.
I DO respect Fijians who believe in honesty.
I DO respect Fijians who listen to others
I DO respect Fijians who respect my human rights
I DO respect Fijians who put Fiji’s interests ahead of their own.
I DO respect Fijians who believe in the Rule of Law
I DO respect Fijians who believe in Equality, across races, gender and sexuality
I DO respect Fijians who respect other religions.
Dictator explains the 2014 election process
Fiji's military broadcast radio [FBC] reports that Fiji's dictator, Bainimarama, will register his political party on 22 April 2014, followed by its launch in May. The dictator declared this at a meeting at Vanuavatu in the Lau Group, while campaigning for votes at the taxpayer's expense.
Meanwhile other political parties rightfully await the rules for the elections. They wait for the rules to be issued before they start their official campaigning as this is the safest option to avoid Khaiyum's nasty and vile schemes to find some sort of fault by which to ban a political party from the elections.
So the political parties wait while the corrupt, lying dictator goes about trying to fool the people of Fiji into believing that his dictatorship, corruption and mismanagement of the economy which has produced high unemployment, high levels of poverty, high levels of crime and suicide and nepotism are all good for the people. Fiji has never been in such a worse state since its independence.
The dictator also revealed that:
FBC also reported that the people of Vanuavatu have revealed that they will support the dictator - the same person who removed their Great Council of Chiefs, insulted their customs and way of life, and insulted their Lord Jesus Christ on national radio on Easter Sunday 2013.
Public Account Committee removed to coverup Bainimarama's use of public money as his Personal Piggy bank and Election fund
Shazzer & Grubby report the following.
Bainimarama HIDES the Interim Government’s Financial Accounts.
Khaiyum has DISSOLVED the Public Accounts Committee.
The Public Accounts Committee set up in 2007 was required as part of its obligations to be accountable to the people of Fiji with respect to the Auditor General's reports on the accounts and finances of the state. In 2007 it is reported to have had 48 audit reports to review and act upon.
Its functions were to be without prejudice or interference of any individual or organization and was to maintain its independence and carry out its functions with honesty and due diligence to ensure that its credibility was upheld at all times.
It was to have powers to examine the accounts of the Government of Fiji in respect of each financial year to determine if proper accounting and use of public funds have been maintained.
IN 8 YEARS NONE OF ITS FINDINGS HAS BEEN PUBLISHED,
See FijiLeaks article
Some of the QUESTIONS they should have ANSWERED are:
The fact he insists on HIDING THIS INFORMATION means only one thing. He has not been telling us the TRUTH about GOVERNMENT FINANCES and his own finances!
Travellers returning to NZ, suffering from dengue
Rita Narayan from Radio Tarana in New Zealand reports that more travellers are returning to New Zealand from Fiji with dengue fever.
Auckland-based Radio Tarana says that there are 35 reported cases in Auckland this year, 24 of those cases were reported from people who returned from Fiji.
Health services have advised people travelling to the Pacific to take steps to avoid mosquito bites.
Since October 2013, Fiji has recorded more than 10,000 cases of dengue fever, with 12 deaths.
Dengue fever has also emerged in French Polynesia, Vanuatu and New Caledonia.
Sources report that the Government is deliberately understating the number of deaths caused by dengue fever so as not to scare away potential tourists.
Apparently Khaiyum's interference in health department policy and a lack of adequate funding resulted in the failure by the department to keep an eye on the larvae of the mosquito carrying the dengue fever virus.
The national adviser for communicable diseases, Dr Mike Kama, said there were 6659 suspected dengue fever cases recorded as of February 16. Of these suspected cases, 2589 were tested positive while two confirmed and two suspected dengue deaths were recorded by the health authorities, said Kama.
The total number of cases of dengue fever is expected to exceed 17,000. Meanwhile Bainimarama and Khaiyum are redirecting funding to fix roads in an attempt to buy votes before the election. It seems that Bainimarama is more concerned about only providing "visible" services that people can see. This is simply to buy votes. Those dying from dengue fever are not a priority as they will not be able to vote.
Fiji's military thugs wine and dine during a feast while the nation is facing its highest levels of unemployment, highest levels of poverty, highest levels of corruption, highest levels of crime and suicide and a lack of funds to deal with a dengue fever epidemic.
The Commander of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF), Brigadier- General Mosese Tikoitoga, hosted a “dine-out” to farewell the lying, corrupt dictator Bainimarama who has been holding the nation hostage since December 2006 . The dictator was also promoted to the rank of Rear Admiral (Retired), which fits his track record through the navy - being promoted from the rear above more talented and more educated military officers. The dictator had also skipped to the rear, quick smart, and abandoned his men when the shooting started in November 2000. The day of the mutiny.
Fiji's illegal and devious President and Commander in Chief, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, also has good reason to promote the dictator to rear admiral. Nailatikau owes the dictator for putting him into the president's office. Nailatikau, Ratu Kubuabola, Ratu Tuki, Hari Punja, the Cakabau brothers, Ratu Epeli Ganilau and others are all part of this satanic group that has been plotting coup after coup in Fiji to further their greedy desires - to rule Fiji and steal its wealth.
Its not a coup culture in Fiji. Its this group of satanic, conniving, sly and greedy evil people who have been behind all the coups since May 1987. Rabuka was the first soldier they used. Then this "satanic" group arranged and appointed a lower ranked and poorly educated naval officer, Bainimarama, to be Commander RFMF. George Speight became the front man in the satanic groups 2000 coup. It failed. Bainimarama succeeded in 2006 and the members of the satanic group now enjoy key positions of power and wealth as part of Bainimarama's military junta. And now Bainimarama is further rewarded with a promotion to Rear Admiral.
Bridgadier- General Tikoitoga said that the dine-out was a feast to honour the former Commander, who is also the dictator that is holding the nation hostage, for his 15 years of leading the RFMF. But the evidence shows that the dictator bainimarama manipulated and used the RFMF to achieve his criminal objectives. Which was to:
Now its Brigadier-General Tikoitoga's (nee Fisher) turn to lead the RFMF. Thankfully he is more educated than the dictator Bainimarama. But will he be a leader or a follower. Or will the new Brig General just be another greedy puppet blinded by all his new found wealth and riches. Unable to see the righteousness and too afraid to do his sworn duty to protect the weak and hear the cries for help from the oppressed people of Fiji.
FijiOne TV reports that journalists have been reminded that their primary role is to gather and disseminate news.
The reports says that Chief Justice Anthony Gates told 70 journalists during a workshop on the 2013 Constitution that they are the front liners of the news industry. Given that how news is sourced has changed, Justice Gates told the journalists of the public’s very high expectations.
The report says that Fiji's illegal Attorney General Khaiyum said that such training is crucial and he challenged journalists to improve news content and be analytical. This is Khaiyum preaching lies. ...Yes, Khaiyum says the fancy words, but the reality is that the journalists are not allowed to report actual events as they see it. If they do then they face threats and intimidation and even beatings at the camp.
The workshop was facilitated by former High Court judge Nazhat Shameem.
Fiji is not a safe place for tourists or prisoners.
On Monday March 10, a 53 year old Canadian tourist was raped at a private villa in Rakiraki called Starfish Blue. Reports say that three Fijian males forced their way into the villa. Two of them used a cane-knife to threaten the man and pulled him outside, while the third male raped the woman. The police have no leads. The couple, so distraught, decided to leave Fiji and return home.
Kacivaka na dina has revealed that a prisoner who was reported to have died from dengue fever, while in his prison cell, is far from the truth. The two pictures above show the prisoner before and after his death. The PRISONER'S FAMILY CLAIM THAT DENGUE FEVER WAS NOT THE CAUSE OF DEATH and the [AFTER] picture clearly shows the face of person that has been severely beaten up.
Bainimarama's so called better Fiji is nothing more than a lie to fool people into keeping him and his megalomaniac puppet master and their fellow coup conspirators in power and out of prison. And YOU the reader need to tell all your families and friends in rural areas, villages and in your communities about this truth.
Bainimarama's highly corrupt and incompetent management of the nation is also evident in Fiji's highest levels of unemployment, high cost of living, highest levels of poverty, highest levels of crime and highest levels of corruption.
Mother nature also revealed the lie behind the fancy new roads - that they are cheap roads made to easily fool the people into believing Bainimarama's lies of building a better Fiji. But Bainimarama borrowed hundred's of millions in the name of Fiji to build these roads and where has all that money gone? Now the new roads have been washed away but the people of Fiji, each and every man, woman and child, still owes over $7,500 each in foreign debt, to repay those loans. This at a time when the country is facing its highest level of poverty and unemployment.
The hundreds of millions that bainimarama borrowed is not all accounted for. Millions have gone missing and the auditor general's report is barred from public view, to hide the truth from the people.
Investors are still staying away from Fiji for good reason. There is no rule of law to protect them or their investments. Khaiyums greed, lies and corruption play a key role in keeping investors away. So no amount of fancy promotions about investing in Fiji will do the trick. What will do the trick is the removal of Khaiyum and his puppet dictator and the return of the rule-of-law to Fiji via a truly free and independent judiciary that do no include any of the existing corrupt judges.
Meanwhile Bainimarama has been out on the campaign trail, starting off while he was still commander of the RFMF, and in direct violation of his Constitution. But his laws do not apply to him, Bainimarama. As Fiji's dictator Bainimarama does whatever he wants, whenever he wants and however he wants. The rest of Fiji just has to wait and obey or face a brutal visit from Bainimarama's goon squad, or a stint in jail based on false allegations and sentences handed down by the corrupt courts and puppet judiciary.
Bainimarama is telling the world, and certainly the people of Fiji, to ignore his criminal actions of treason, murder, rape, and corruption, and believe that his motives are noble and that he is nothing but a selfless servant of the higher cause of a pure Fiji. Bullshit! Bainimarama's actual record of what he said and did (or did not do) tells another story.
Bainimarama's actual speeches are filled with lies, paranoia, betrayals and self aggrandizement, a man escaping from the law, not doing his sworn duty as Commander and interim Prime Minister to uphold it.
In Frank Bainimarama’s hands, Fiji is on the fast road to rack and ruin, while he and his corrupt family and friends steal Fiji's wealth and resources.
Tessa MacKenzie hoists flag of cowardice and corruption over Fiji's Citizens’ Constitutional Forum [CCF]
FBC reports that the Citizens’ Constitutional Forum has taken action against Rev Yabaki
Taken from: FBC News / Report by: Ritika Pratap
Veteran human rights activist, Reverend Akuila Yabaki, has been given two months to leave the Citizens’ Constitutional Forum or face removal. So it is believed that a special CCF board meeting was held and decided that Yabaki’s removal was the best option for the remain cowards within the organization. The accused Rev Yabaki of poor leadership and high staff turnover. Those that remain are no doubt eagerly bending over to appease the Khai-bai dictatorship. They should instead be upholding the truth and the rights of Fiji citizens!
Island’s business reports, Yabaki’s contract is still valid for two years but as we all know this means nothing to khai-bai dictatorship as there is NO RULE OF LAW in Fiji.
FBC says that staff members are being advised by board member Tessa M acKenzie of the changes and former Dialogue Fiji head, Sandra Fong, will head the CCF until a "coward" and "puppet" replacement is found for Yabaki. Rev Yabaki joined CCF in 1997.
The veteran human rights activist, Rev Yabaki, says we all need to remember why we are all here on blog sites. Rev Yabaki says that the regime has taken away from the people the ability to speak their mind in public, in meetings, in the news and even in offices of work. Even in our own families and particularly amongst those in the disciplined forces. It is at times uncomfortable. But the frustration burns inside.
This is what this dictatorship has done and all it wants is servitude/servants. Even in the constitution it did not use various channels and forms of communications to make sure the common man could understand it. It just gave a big legalese document for everyone to consume. Why, because they want to then tell us their interpretation of the document that serves their purposes. In fact I still stand by my belief that the military including Bai do not understand the implications of its content or the decrees. They are just beginning to understand some of it with the Mahoghany decree I understand.
This is no different to the early Roman Catholic Church with the Bible. The Bible was in Latin. They were not interested in translating it into the language of the people. Why, because they were making money out of it. Until William Tyndale decided to do an English translation and he was victimized.
So make no mistake about the people behind this regime, the political and business interests, they want to enslave us and to do it only their way. Otherwise it’s the highway. But we must not relent we must not fear but take courage and fight for our freedoms even on the blogs in our daily conversations. In whatever small way we can. All of us.
A Fiji pro-democracy supporter is deliberately targeted and harassed at Auckland airport by NZ Customs, on behalf of the NZ government.
After arriving at Auckland airport the individual goes through the normal arrival procedures through immigration and customs. The individual is cleared by customs and exits the arrival gate. The individual then waits around for approximately ten minutes for friends who arrive and they walk out of the airport terminal to the car park.
A customs officer runs up behind the individual and asks to see their passport. The customs officer confirms its the individual and tells them that they need to go back into the airport, where the individual is told their bags will need to be searched for drugs and weapons.
Shouldn't this search have been done BEFORE I exited the customs area and the airport terminal and BEFORE I had mingled with members of the public, asked the individual. Well yes was the reply from the female customs officer, but we still need to search your bags for drugs and weapons. BUT after I have exited the building, the individual asks again. Is this how NZ customs searches people for drugs and weapons asks the individual, after they exit the airport building? After some discussion a senior customs officer says that they also conduct searches on behalf of other agencies. Its just their job.
The search of the bags finds nothing, the individual had first been threatened with "it is your last chance to tell the truth". I have declared everything says the individual, its all declared in my customs declaration, which has my signature. Next the customs officer is told to search the laptops and phones.
Will we find anything objectionable on your laptop or phones asks the customs officer. What's objectionable asks the individual. Any pornography or child sex videos or pictures says the customs officer. The only objectionable photos you will find are ones of people tortured and beaten up and those soldiers with their heads smashed open - murdered by Fiji’s dictator.
Customs finds nothing "objectionable" on the laptops and phones and allows the individual to repack the bags and leave. Approximately 2 hours have lapsed.
Its not a coup culture in Fiji, which everyone seems to think. Its a group of conspiring devious, lying, corrupt and conniving old bastards who have been trying to further their greedy ambitions. They started off with the 1987 coup that failed to give them their desired results so they had Ratu Epeli Ganilau appoint Bainimarama to Commander RFMF in 1999. Bainimarama, a lower ranked officer and not too educated, was appointed Commander over other more qualified, more educated and more morally sound senior army officers. The devious group of old conspirators then failed miserably in the 1999 elections, so in May 2000 they attempted another coup and failed. Unfortunately, in 2006, they finally succeeded!
Along the way this group of devious old misfits used various people to front for them. They used Rabuka in 1987, Bainimarama and George Speight in 2000, and then Bainimarama again to finish it off in 2006.
This group of devious, lying, corrupt and conniving old bastards include Ratu Epeli Nailatikau [who is the illegal President of Fiji], Ratu Jone Kubuabola [ the illegal Minister of Foreign Affairs], and Hari Punja who financed it all. Now Bainimarama and Khaiyum have joined the pack. There were others who have since passed on and others that continue their support from the shadows.
The RFMF dutifully sent off its outgoing commander and Fiji’s dictator Bainimarama after 15 years of his thug leadership, treason, sedition, murder, corruption, oppression of the people of Fiji and dictatorship.
The Fiji Times reports the 3FIR commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Manoa Gadai, as saying the army was thankful to God for preserving Bainimarama’s life during the 2000 mutiny when rebel soldiers stormed the Queen Elizabeth Barracks. He also claimed that the dictator Bainimarama was chosen by God to lead the army and that he had been a good and capable leader. What a load of rubbish!
This form of blind praise has fast become the norm for anyone talking about Fiji’s corrupt, lying and criminal dictator, Bainimarama. It’s all lies, but what’s the alternative for these tough (?) Fijian soldier(s),…loss of rank and income and may be a jail sentence on trumped up charges like with Brig-General Pita Driti?...
Lt-Col Gadai also paid tribute to the dictator's wife, Mary Kean-Bainimarama, for her part in assisting him in what can only be his lying and stealing from Fiji through multiple salaries, corruption, theft of native lands, and oppression and torture and murder of the people. Mary knows all about the dictator’s evil deeds but she is too smitten by greed and that kai-loma “koco”, illegal perks and the corrupt high life she couldn’t before enjoy.
But what is really interesting is Lt-Col Gadai portraying the lying, corrupt and lamusona dictator Bainimarama as the biblical King David, the hero of Israel - saying that the dictator had triumphed over many odds and beaten many different Goliaths. What the?!
It was Bainimarama, with all the guns and military thugs, who ordered his CRW soldiers into parliament in 2000 to take government hostage, pretended to be Fiji's saviour, overthrew his Commander in Chief the president, committed treason and sedition, ordered the deaths of CRW soldiers, murdered an unborn child, raped and beat-up women and men, and insulted the indigenous Fijian people and their Lord and God Jesus Christ! the list goes on...
So what God is Lt-Col Gadai thanking?? ….it can only be SATAN! ......unless the true loving, Lord and God, sent Bainimarama to teach the people of Fiji how to fish and feed themselves for a lifetime?
I always thought there could only be one Commander RFMF at any one time….but is Lt-Col Gadai vying to be the first to share command or is he after a bollywood OSCAR award?! Manasa Tagicakibau set that standard for a quick easy promotion by betraying fellow officers for his 30 pieces of silver, which was a promotion to Lt-Colonel!
The new Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga [Fisher] also paid ass-licking homage to the dictator saying he had dealt with some of the most challenging events in Fiji's history, while conveniently ignoring the fact that it was Bainimarama himself behind all nasty and evil challenging events in Fiji's history!
But Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga [Fisher] goes on to say that there was the overthrow of the government in 2000 [caused by Bainimarama, RATu Epeli Nailatikau, RATu Epeli Ganilau, RATu Kubuabola and Punjas, etc] and the ensuing chaos, which Bainimarama successfully brought to an end [...by betraying his fellow conspirators George Speight and his supporters] and the subsequent mutiny [because Bainimarama had betrayed his CRW, ordering them into parliament and later blaming them for the coup]
The history of Fiji would certainly have been very different had either of these events succeeded. BUT Bainimarama and his nasty, evil conspirators didnt give up and continued their attempts to usurp power and control over Fiji. Finally, they succeeded in December 2006! ......so the military insults King David!
It is my pleasure to announce our work on the SODELPA YOUTH MANIFESTO.
The Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) Youth Wing, has been been given the green-light to work on a Youth Manifesto that will feed into the main Party's Manifesto.

Social Democratic Liberal Party (SODELPA) Youth Wing
Fiji Times reporter, Tevita Vuibau, writes that Fiji's NEW Military Commander Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga said the military will remain independent as enshrined in the 2013 Constitution. He made this comment after officially taking over the post of Commander of Fiji's entire military forces.
Brig-Gen Tikoitoga said the Constitution would form the basis for all future dealings with the dictator, his government and his political party. "Our independence is guaranteed in the Constitution, our role is in the Constitution and because we helped create the Constitution our independence is guaranteed. [This sounds like an oxymoron!] The RFMF will follow the principles of the Constitution and uphold its principles to the letter," said Brig-Gen Tikoitoga [originally Mosese Fisher, but changed his name after the coup]. "As the new commander of the RFMF, I want to solemnly declare before the nation my commitment to the 2013 Constitution which incorporates the vision we all share for a new and better Fiji," Brig-Gen Tikoitoga said.
"Under my command, the RFMF will obey, defend and protect that Constitution and the new democracy that, together we are all creating." [...there goes his independence]
Brig-Gen Tikoitoga said the personal relationship between the military and its former commander would not affect the role of the military. "I would be lying if I tell you that we will sever all relationship ties with Bainimarama because he has served with us and been amongst us for 39 years. [And will continue to pull his strings of control]
"Personally, we will continue to be a very warm relationship with him but professionally as commander and a member of the RFMF, our professional relationship will depend on what is guaranteed or what's stated in the Constitution [that was froced on to the people of Fiji]. "That will be our professional relationship between his political party, his government and the army."
But what about Fiji's previous and legal Constitution that was abrogated/thrown out! This all suggests that new Commander is the dictator's puppet and will say all the fancy empty words until a new constitution is forced on to the people!....
FINALLY, the dictator Voreqe Bainimarama has officially stepped down from the post as Fiji's Army Commander. What a relief!
FijiVillage reported Bainimarama's daughter, Ruby-Ann Sorovaki, as saying that it has been an interesting journey for the family with their father as the head of the RFMF. It certainly was a "rags to riches" tale for the Bainimarama clan, filled with treason, murder, rape, torture, multiple salaries, land theft, insulting indigenous Fijians and the Methodist Church, and many free trips and perks for the corrupt family.
Bainimarama was towed out of QEB by senior officers led by Brigadier General Tikoitoga. Bainimarama is now the FORMER Commander so we wait an see what the NEW commander does to protect Fiji. The questions is, does the NEW Commander have balls to do his duty and protect the people?
Time will tell if Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga is "man or mouse"....
The dictator holding Fiji hostage, Voreqe Bainimarama, revealed on Fiji radio that Land Force Commander Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga will be the new RFMF Commander.
Tikoitoga’s appointment was endorsed by the treasonous President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau who started the coup culture in Fiji to further his political goals and greed.
Shazzer & Grubby writes, How does the Electoral Commission know it’s not a Rubber Stamp? ...Khaiyum said so!
In all countries, except dictatorships, the electoral Commission is an independent body to ensure free and fair elections. But in a dictatorship it becomes just another tool to be used by the dictator to stay in power, says Shazzer.
The Dictator without a party has had access to the useful soft copy of the electoral register. The registered political parties do not says Grubby. This is an example of the election not being FREE and FAIR!
Shazzer also states that during a recent meeting with the Electoral Commission, the same request was made by the registered parties. Young (Chairman of the Electoral Commission and a tax cheat) said: “That has to be taken up - with the legislation that’s already set in place and my understanding from the legal people in the Solicitor General’s office – there is no specific provision that entitles them to a soft copy.” This is a load of rubbish!
Being an independent entity the Electoral Commission should be using its own legal people and not the dictator’s people! Mr Young seems to have conveniently forgotten that he is a lawyer, a tax cheat but still a lawyer. It is also the reason why he was appointed to the Electoral Commission so that he could provide it with legal opinions!!
Shazzer says that Young uses the words “there is no specific provision that entitles them to a soft copy” BUT MATE, there is also NO Specific provision that says they CAN NOT have a Soft Copy.
Professor Wadan Narsey has an interesting take on the matter.
A Criminal Leader is followed by Criminals.
By Shazzer & Grubby.
Shazzer was recently privileged to talk to the top American pollster Polly Tickle. We had an interesting discussion on the people leaders like to have in their party.
The answer was a leader wants people who SHARED HIS OUTLOOK & MORALS.
Shazzer has had an in-depth look at the MORALS and the outlook of the GLORIOUS LEADER, Frank Bainimarama. From this study we have been able to select the key the types of people Bainimarama will want in his party.
1- Big Confident IN-YOUR-FACE Liars
The BIG LIE coming back to bite VUAKA’s ASS is: No One in the Interim government will be able to stand in the election.
What are you doing now, Frank? Liar Liar Pants on Fire!
Frank will always whatever is easiest to say. If the next day he contradicts himself, he’s not worried.
He is equally comfortable lying to a single person, a group at a cocktail, a village meeting, the NATION, Ambassadors and his fellow PACIFIC LEADERS.
Let’s not forget every lie he tells is also a lie before God.
2- ARROGANT IDIOTS
Frank famously said in an interview “I don’t trust the people”.
He thinks he knows what is best for everyone in Fiji. So all this talk of Giving Fiji its first Genuine Democracy (Nice Words Qorvis) is BULLSHIT!
If the Fijian People do not give Frank the election verdict he wants he will just do what he thinks is best and that is to CONTINUE TO RULE.
3- GREEDY PIGS
There is a lot of speculation that Frank is earning over a million dollars. This speculation could have been ended as soon as it started by Transparent Frank announcing his salary. But he has kept it hidden for over five years.
Here are 2 FACTS
1- His salary is paid by Aunty Nur.
2- His salary is hundreds of thousands of dollars. Exactly how many we do not know.
When he registers his party he has to reveal his assets so we will see what loop hole Khaiyum has created to avoid this little bit of transparency
4- Violent THUGS
Frank has never been afraid to use a bit of violence. A few CLASSIC EXAMPLES
1- Threatening to kill the Minister of Home Affairs in a meeting in 2006
2- Removing the Prime Minister with guns
3- Attacking Democracy protesters and stamping on their backs
4- Sending Col Qiliho to burn a judge’s house
Frank is an EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES THUG; he does not discriminate between hurting women or men.
5- NO RESPECT for the Law
The only verdict of a court that Frank respects is one that supports him. Any others he ignores or he gets Khaiyum to write a decree ruling his actions legal. Just in case anyone disagrees with a decree he has made it illegal to challenge them in a court.
His biggest middle finger salute to the law: After the Court of Appeal declared his coup illegal he removed all the judges in Fiji.
6- Family Favorites
Frank loves this bit about being PM. There are so many jobs that are his to give. His policy on jobs is this “You don’t need a qualified expert to do a GOOD job if you have a USELESS FAMILY member to F@rk It Up.
NEPOTISM RULES LONGEST
Frank held the coup to end the Police investigation into his involvement in the murders of the CRW.
Killer Kean, his Bro-in-Law was convicted of killing the uncle of the groom at a wedding. Not only did Frank intervene on Kean’s behalf to get him a short 18 month sentence but then he made sure he only served a few months in prison.
But to PROVE he APPROVES of MURDER he rewarded Kean with a promotion to Commander of the NAVY.
Frank is yet to announce the name of his party so here is a suggestion.
THE CRIMINAL ELEMENT
The junta's propaganda paper, the Fiji Sun, [owned by CJ Patel] reports that Fiji's lying, corrupt, criminal dictator Voreqe Bainimarama is an overwhelming early leader as the preferred Prime Minister. Some people wondered if the poll sample included members of Bainimarama's Cabinet and his family.
What this [scientific or fraudulent] poll result shows is that Bainimarama's support has dropped by 20.9%.
Back in 2011 the promiscuous PS information, Sharon Smith-Johns, and the Lowy Institute, a highly suspect Australian international policy think tank, claimed that the dictator had 99.9% support of the people. Remember, at this same time people who objected to Bainimarama's dictatorship were being taken away and beaten up, raped, had boiling hot water poured over their bare backs, murdered, had rifle barrels shoved into their rectums and others dragged through the manipulated and corrupt Fiji courts on minor charges. Remember these sordid events? So, if you were interviewed, questioned or asked at that time who you supported, what would you have said? .....100% of us mortals would have yelled Bainimarama's name out with such overwhelming enthusiasm! ....[kaila!] There was no freedom then and now, although some agencies now report a slight relaxing of restrictions.
Bainimarama's initial 99.9% support has dropped to an overwhelming 79%! That's a decrease of 20.9% Have the people finally realised that Bainimarama is actually a lying, corrupt, criminal dictator? How much will that figure fall by come election day 2014? . . . some estimate it will be around 25%. Others suggest the hatred caused by Bainimarama and Khaiyum will see their support at a much lower figure, and grouped around their corrupt family and friends and those parasites feeding off the proverbial gravy train.
The first FIJI SUN Poll was conducted by the CJ Patel Pacific/Razor market research teams. See FijiLeaks editorial for more.
Dictator's corrupt deals and mismanagement exposed by mother nature. And still the dictator continues to lie.
FijiLeaks reports the dictator Frank Bainimarama as saying, "If the roadwork isn't up to scratch, we will demand that it be re-done at no cost to the taxpayer.This has never happened before in Fiji [what a load of bullshit. This happens whenever it rains, across Fiji] We are serious about quality [yeah right!], and will no longer accept sub-standard work. [this is what Bainimarama keeps says, the fancy words. In reality he and Khaiyum steal a lot of the cheap Chinese loans for themselves and their corrupt family and friends. The Audit General's report will reveal this theft]. The dictator also states his simple philosophy: If you're going to build a road, build a good road. [Ok, so why didnt you build good roads? Was it all for show, to fool the people into voting for you?...Absolutely!]
And than the dictator thanks the government of the People's Republic of China and ambassador Huang Young, for facilitating the funding negotiations with the Exim Bank of China. Yes,...I can just picture Bainimarama lying in the face of the people.
The roads across Fiji are no different to what a Tongan Minister claimed a few weeks back, that their roads were built by the Chinese, to poor standards. Subsequently, the roads were destroyed, well before the loan repayments had even begun. Thus more loans are expected to fix the damaged roads, and the never ending "Chinese loan cycle" continues to destruction!
Fiji has over 1,000 communities spread across remote locations and 108 islands. Yet Fiji’s Electoral Commission chairman, Chen Bunn Young [who is also wanted on tax avoidance charges] disagrees with critics that say a one day election is impossible..... Time will tell!
C4.5 reports that electronic copies of the voting register was kept from political parties.
The illegal attorney general Khaiyum was forced to tell the media that the laptop, containing the names and details of voters, went missing ten days ago. He blamed Rejieli Lesione for taking it without authority and failing to report the theft quickly, says C4.5.
This reveals that the illegal AG Khaiyum withheld crucial information from political parties. No doubt this was done in an attempt to give the lying, corrupt dictator of Fiji, Bainimarama, some much needed edge over political parties. It is also a part of the fraudulent activities being undertaken by Khaiyum and Bainimarama to rig the election results in their favour.
Despite this and other evidence of fraud and manipulation our highly learned neighbours, Australia and New Zealand, still see it fit to support the dictatorship that is holding Fiji hostage. The oppressed people of Fiji are obviously less important than the dictator who overthrew his Commander in Chief, and committed treason, rape, murder and corruption.
A visibly frustrated elderly native Fijian man suggested to me that "no effective action by Australia and New Zealand" gives the impression that they are not regional leaders and that progress may only be achieved with a subservient indigenous peoples. "Just look at their own native people and how they are being treated in their own homeland, its really disgusting", said the old man.
FijiToday reports that an international expert on the effectiveness of sanctions says on a global scale Fiji’s case scores very poorly. Hooray!, we have known this for a very long time.... It's a pity, though, that our "neighbours" see it fit to apply very soft sanctions, as a way of being seen to be doing something, while at the same time support the lying, corrupt dictator who is holding Fiji hostage, and committed treason, rape and murder!
Gary Hufbauer of the Washington-based Peterson Institute for International Economics says on a scale of one to 16, the sanctions brought by countries like New Zealand and Australia on Fiji have only achieved a score of about four.
He says Fiji would have had to see much heavier sanctions like stopping tourists to the country for them to have had an effect like a regime change or early free and fair elections. These options were recommended to Australia's DFAT and NZ's MFAT and their respective Council of Trade Unions. But nothing!....
Dr Hufbauer says the score remains low even though the dictator, Bainimarama, has promised elections for later this year.
Even if he allows his opponents to run, there is that question of whether the polling booths will be open long enough, votes will be accurately counted and so forth, so I will hold on to my scepticism till we get much closer. Maybe knock it up to four, but our cut off for success is nine and this is way below, says Dr Hufbauer.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." ~ Ronald Reagan, 40th President of the United States (1981–1989)
Chiefs, Community leaders, Oppressed people of Fiji, democracy groups, NGO's, Unionists, individuals, our Pacific neighbours and friends of Fiji. We all need to unite and work together to remove the Bainiarama Junta, and return Democracy, the rule of Law and Human Rights to Fiji.
Together we will triumph & restore peace & prosperity to our beloved Fiji Islands.
"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men or women to do nothing"
Are YOU one of those "good" men or women choosing to do nothing, therefore allowing
Bainimarama and Khaiyum to continue to Hold Fiji Hostage?
