Professor Wadan Narsey explains the stupidity of the Fiji flag change. What Bainimarama said is given below in italics and quotes, with Prof Narsey's comments following.
Bainimarama: ‘We need to replace the symbols on our existing flag.
Gobbledygook. Only Bainimarama and Khaiyum saw the need to change the flag. The public did not ask for it.
‘ Bainimarama: The new flag should reflect Fiji’s position in the world today as a modern and truly independent nation state’.
Gobbledygook. Not a single flag in the world shows that its country is ‘modern and truly independent’. ‘
Bainimarama: ‘The existing flag is widely loved and admired. Our United Nations peacekeeping troops have fought and sometimes died under it. Our sportsmen have stood before it as they achieved some of the greatest and most inspirational victories in our sporting history….. every Fijian has stood before it in our schools as they sing our national anthem with patriotism and pride.’
Probably accurate. But they have done so for forty five years, so why bother changing?
Bainimarama: ‘It is time to dispense with the colonial symbols on our flag – the Union Jack of the United Kingdom and our colonial shield.’
Perhaps a proportion of Indo-Fijians say they want the Union Jack removed, as the symbol of the oppression of their ancestors during the indenture period, but interestingly, many Indo-Fijians today have publicly written to the Letters to the Editor, calling for the retention of the current flag.
I suspect most indigenous Fijians will say they want to retain the Union Jack on the flag because they value their link to the British Crown, even though few protested when Rabuka declared Fiji a republic, and broke the links with the British Crown.
Fijian dictator and self-appointed prime minister Frank Bainimarama announced that his government will change the Fiji flag and dispense with Fiji's colonial symbols, making it more relevant to every Fijian. Oh really!
The dictator said that with Fiji's new democracy [the Baini/Khaiyum dictatorship] in place, his government could proceed with the program he flagged in 2013, to adopt a symbol more in keeping with his self-serving national aspirations in the 21st century. Yes, Bainimarama has been running from the law since May 2000. Bainimarama committed treason, murder, rape and corruption and cant afford to lose power or he will go to prison with his corrupt supporters and family and friends.
But the opposition are no better, still content on talking and screaming on the sidelines like toothless rottweilers. Meanwhile, the oppressed nation suffers longer. Yes the cost of freedom is high but our opposition are too afraid to do what needs to be done. Too afraid to act and be the true leaders they need to be to lead the people and the nation to freedom.
The opposition's record so far..........
...........lost control of the nation to a bully, when they had all the power, but no clue on how to lead or what to do. Those assisting the ailing President also aided the bully out of sheer fright or were they implicit?
...........Then the native Fijians lost their chiefly voice as the Great Council of Chiefs was disbanded
..........Next the native Fijians have been losing their native lands to corrupt and fraudulent policies and schemes.
...........Then the native Fijians were further insulted with a new name - iTaukei, the owner of something, anything, including toilet paper.
...........Next was the removal of the native Fijian language from being spoken in parliament
............Fiji's assets have also been stolen and sold off to corrupt organisations.
...........The 2014 elections was clearly rigged with the help of low-down and two-faced foreign academics and governments.
...........Now the national flag is being replaced, replacing the colonial symbols with the dictator's symbols of treason, murder and corruption...............
............stuck in the middle are the innocent Fiji citizens from all racial backgrounds who gladly and wholeheartedly call Fiji home and lack a leader to lead them out of oppression.
The opposition still screams and shouts what the world already knows......... that Fiji is being run by a lying, corrupt, treasonous, criminal and puppet dictator and his corrupt family and friends. But this is as far as the opposition is prepared to go.........talk! But talk without action is as effective as tits on a bull. And yes, the next Fiji elections will also be rigged with more support from our two-faced neighbors. And the cycle continues........... with more talk from the opposition.....
We all know that all Fijians, including school children, have been encouraged to enter a competition for the design of the dictator's national flag. And this is what it is, the dictator's national flag and symbol. The new flag is a symbol of treason, murder, rape, corruption and it is expected to be ready by the 45th anniversary of Fiji's Independence, October 10.
Bainimarama easily LIES to the people of Fiji at Ratu Navula College by telling the cadets, that there is no privileged class in the future of Fiji - BUT Bainimarama and Khaiyum live very privileged lives in Fiji, with the protection of corrupt military officers and goons. Meanwhile, common, ordinary Fijians are being threatened, beaten, tortured and raped on Bainimarama and Khaiyum's childish whims! These two criminals are also engaged in corruption and robbing Fiji of its land and resources that other common, ordinary Fijians can't do, and will not do because it is illegal and just wrong!
Bainimarama and Khaiyum have made themselves, and their corrupt family and friends, the privileged class in Fiji.
Bainimarama and Khaiyum were close to bankruptcy in 2006, then after Bainimarama, ran from the law and illegally removed the government, he and Khaiyum and their wives can now buy houses with cash that common, ordinary Fijians can't do. These two criminals do not have to fear being arrested, for now, for corruption, treason and murder that common, ordinary Fijians are being arrested for and hauled into court, and imprisoned - mostly for much lesser evils committed by Bainimarama and Khaiyum. This is all part of a privileged life that Bainimarama lives, while lying to the common, ordinary people that there is no privileged class!
Besides, how many Common, ordinary Fijians can send their children on free trips overseas at the taxpayer's expense? Yeah, how many? Bainimarama's corrupt family and friends are also getting top jobs that they are not qualified for or intellectually capable of, yet highly qualified Fijians who DO NOT support corruption and treason have been removed from office! Common, ordinary Fijians do not get this same privilege! So Bainimarama is LYING or he is TOO Stupid to understand what he is saying. Which do you think it is?
Bainimarama is saying sweet words to trick the common, ordinary Fijians into supporting his corruption and continued dictatorship so that he does not get arrested and be imprisoned for his crimes.
So Voreqe Bainimarama and Khaiyum are the privileged class, now, and in the future of Fiji if nothing is done to stop their corrupt dictatorship.
The Fiji Sun reported that the Fiji Corrections Service scooped the dictator's 2014 award for Service Excellence, yet the [Fiji Corrections Service has identified an increase in repeat offenders, those going in and out of prison, in the first quarter of 2015.
Fiji's Dictator, Frank Bainimarama's, Service Excellence Award makes sense if you look at Bainimarama's actual record of awarding promotions and senior government jobs to unqualified people that include his criminal brother-in-law who was imprisoned for murder, his unqualified daughters and brother and friends and family members. Unqualified junior military officers have been promoted, overnight, carrying out Bainimarama's human rights violations and evil plans and deeds against citizens and foreigners. This is all part of the Bainimarama legacy of corruption, lies, murder, rape and treason.
The Corrections Commissioner, Lieutenant-Colonel Vasu, said that the increase in repeat offenders was one of the many challenges that the Service needed to deal with. Vasu added that if his officers looked after the inmates well, while serving their term, everything would be better and much easier. For whom? Vasu is suggesting that if prisoners were treated better by the corrections officers then they would not become repeat offenders! Yeah right!
A prisoner [and school children] only have to look at the reality with not much job opportunities, nepotism, government ministers telling the nation not to help beggars, government corruption, intimidation and the increased cost of living, to know that they will get food and shelter in prison. Besides, the dictator PM, Bainimarama's, record is a guiding light for anyone looking for an easier way to become a millionaire - crime pays! Okay, so you get my drift right?......
Lieutenant-Colonel Vasu said, however, that they had been discussing with the Fiji Police Force and other stakeholders on how they could address this problem. Good luck to them! But why is the police force only arresting some of the criminals? The police should arrest ALL criminals, including the dictator, Bainimarama, who committed treason, sedition, murder, rape, disobeyed a lawful order and is stealing Fiji's resources.
With most members of Fiji's new Constitutional Offices Commission being appointed by the dictator and his illegal AG the Commission is a one-sided-affair. Remember that the treasonous President Epeli Nailatikau is only a puppet and appoints members based on the dictators recommendation. This means that the Opposition, as it already does in Parliament, can only yell and scream as loud as they want, but they have no power or votes to make a difference on who is appointed to senior government positions.
None of the Government appointed members will vote for the best person, because they risk losing their membership on the Commission and may even be accused of some false crime and be imprisoned and beaten. So the cards are stacked in favour of the dictatorship!
The opposition, therefore. is ultimately toothless and ineffective as the illegal Bainimarama dictatorship will always have the votes to appoint whomever they want. Even Bainimarama's unqualified and criminal family, friends or financial supporters can be appointed to senior government positions. Bainimarama has already appointed his unqualified daughters to senior positions and given top jobs to his brother and criminal brother-in-law, Francis Kean, who lost his temper and kicked a young man to death!
The function of the commission is to advise the treasonous President, Nailatikau, on the appointment of senior government positions. This process is just a LIE to fool the international communities, who are bending over to accept it, instead of helping the oppressed stop it.
The reality, as with the rest of Fiji's decisions, is that Bainimarama and Khaiyum will dictate who gets which senior government job. The successful applicant need not be qualified or educated or have any morals at all. They only need to support the corruption, no-rule of law and human rights violations, etc. You have seen these low-down applicants in existing roles. Those who witnessed the corrupt activities and spoke out about it have all been removed. So don't expect any moral person to hold these senior government positions:
The Fiji Sun, which is the dictator Bainimarama's propaganda mouth piece, reported that the Assistant Minister for Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster, Joeli Cawaki, had a good reason to break from tradition and not drink yaqona (kava) at a traditional welcome ceremony.
Cawaki said he was committed to a yaqona ban as part of a religious observance called "Cabe ni Cina" to seek spiritual enlightenment and strength for the vanua of Dravuni in Deuba, Serua, where he is from. Oh Really! Is the "spiritual enlightenment" that Cawaki speaks of the same as the Bible's version of enlightenment? Not very likely, because the bible's version speaks of the "truth" and shaming the devil. But Cawaki is in bed with the devil so its not likely that he will give up his lucrative salary and perks! No Cawaki is NOT thinking of owning up to his treasonous support of a criminal Dictator and resigning. This is all an act to fool the people. A well known culture in Fiji of showing-off in a crowd by saying the right thing, while having no intention of doing it. Tamani Lasulasu!!
As the chief guest at the Naitasiri Provincial Council meeting in Vunidawa Cawaki also falsely claimed that Government was there to serve and not to be served - BULLSHIT!.
We all know that the Government is already serving itself by running from the law, corruption, paying themselves multiple salaries, stealing native lands, torture, murder and rape and carrying out native Fijian cultural genocide! So the illegal Bainimarama government is already serving itself interests!
Cawaki also revealed that he had a traditional link to Naitasiri through his ancestors of Yavusa Dravuni, Mataqal Nunisaqiwa, Tokatoka Navatuyaba which originally came from the banks of the River Wainivalau in Naitasiri. Then they moved across to the vanua of Nabukebuke in Namosi, before finally settling in Deuba at the mouth of the Navua River. I wonder if these same ancestors are pleased with Bainimarama's insulting treatment and cultural genocide of native Fijians!
Fiji's corrupt, lying and immature dictator, Frank Bainimarama, accused the Opposition of representing the "elite". This was in response to a question on indigenous issues that was raised by a member of the Opposition, Viliame Gavoka. The dictator stated, "I thank the
honourable member for reminding us yet again that the Opposition continue to represent the interest of the elites." To which the Leader of the Opposition, Ro Teimumu Kepa, said that Bainimarama was confused. Ro Kepa was being diplomatic.
In political and sociological theory, an elite is a small group of people who control a disproportionate amount of wealth or political power. So it is really funny and sickening to read that the dictator Bainimarama, together with his puppet master Khaiyum, who control a disproportionate amount of Fiji's wealth, through corruption, and political power through dictatorship, intimidation, torture and fear mongering, are accusing the opposition of representing the elite. What a load of Kiuva rubbish! The opposition are representing the Oppressed!
The elite in Fiji consists of Bainimarama and his group of corrupt and conniving family and friends. They are the "elite" in Fiji. But Bainimarama uses the word "elite" to vilify the indigenous Fijians in an attempt to deflect blame and attention away from this corrupt and criminal actions.
What is even more frustrating is that Opposition leaders, in their delusion and lack of mana and grit, still think that having the most votes will make a difference at the next [rigged] Fiji general election. The next rigged results will, no doubt, be ruled "credible" once again by a corrupt and low-down bunch of malicious and devious foreign observers....and the cycle continues......
The Commissioner of Corrections Lieutenant Colonel lfereimi Vasu said that the new Vaturekuka Shopping Mart, which opened in Labasa, will provide employment opportunities for "skilled" prison inmates. This is under the the yellow ribbon scam.
Remember, that this same yellow ribbon scam was used to free Bainimarama's brother-in-law, Francis Kean, who was found guilty of murder and imprisoned. Bainimarama ensured that his criminal brother-in-law also received his full-navy commander salary while in prison and then freed his criminal brother-in-law after just a few months. This is blatant corruption!
Meanwhile, George Speight, Captain Shane Stevens, other CRW soldiers and politicaians involved in the 2000 coup remain in prison, well beyond there parole periods! Remember that Frank Bainimarama ordered his CRW soldiers into parliament in 2000 to overthrow the government and then turned on them when his plans failed and had the CRW arrested. George Speight was blamed for leading the 2000 coup after Ratu Epeli Nailatikau got scared, and abandoned Speight in the parliament complex. Now Nailatikau is the illegal President of Fiji. Shame on him and his Ratu title!
Vasu claims that through the yellow ribbon campaign, the shopping mart would employ skilled inmates who could learn income-generating tactics from the mart which is expected to assist them a lot when they have served their sentences and rehabilitated back into their respective communities. Oh Really?! Are these skilled inmates supposed to exit prison and find jobs when Bainimarama has raised the level of unemployment to its highest levels ever in Fiji's history. And who will employ these skilled inmates? Besides investment has also been reduced to its lowest levels ever thanks to Khaiyum and Bainimarama's corruption, no rule of law, lies and intimidation and beating of citizens.
All that prisoners and indeed our children and unemployed people need to learn about income-generating tactics is to follow in the foot-steps of the corrupt, lying dictator, Frank Bainimarama, who has become rich over-night by committing murder, sedition, treason, disobeyed his Commander in Chief, lies, beats-up opponents and steals land, pays himself multiple salaries, and rigs an election to stay in power.
Bainimarama and Khaiyum have shown that the quickest and most lucrative way for you and your corrupt family and friends to become millionaires in Fiji is to follow their example and commit murder, sedition, treason and disobeyed your Commander in Chief, and stage a coup - just as Frank Bainimarama has done! You too can become rich over-night! In addition, the international community has proven that it is more than willing to look the other way!
Fiji's corrupt and lying dictator, Frank Bainimarama, thanked the highly corrupt CJ Patel Group of Companies and their illegally acquired Fiji Dairy Limited for generously providing the Year One students at Nakelo District School with their own Weet-Bix bowl and spoon. The dictator goes on to say that C J Patel delivers this massive logistic undertaking and have gone the extra mile to ensure that all Class One students receive a healthy meal every morning of wheetbix and milk! This is good for those class one students or is it?
Nutrition experts say that Fijian children are rejecting the local and more nutritious foods for more junk foods. Click HERE to read more in Prof Wadan's analysis One ministry builds and others destroy: worsening nutrition in Fiji” (edited version in Fiji Times, 4 April 2015)
But do not forget that the CJ Patel Group of Companies rigged a deal with the corrupt Khaiyum to purchase Rewa Dairy. Khaiyum's aunty Bano received millions for this transaction and so did Khaiyum and Bainimarama. This is the type of corruption that Bainimarama said he was getting rid off - Bullshit! Bainimarama is a corrupt and lying dictator.
C J Patel have partnered with the corrupt and lying Bainimarama Government to engage in corruption and milk Fiji of its resources. They own the pro-dictator Fiji Sun paper and Rewa Dairy which gives CJ Patel millions ......so this is all FAKE generosity by C J Patel. IT is a cheap gesture in exchange for the millions they make out of illegally owning Rewa Dairy and publishing lies for the poor people to read about the so-called good Bainimarama dictatorship.
The late managing director of CJ Patel, Sundip Patel, was passionately into this corruption and scam. He knew what was happening and saw the corrupt Bainimarama Government’s dictatorship and lies as an opportunity to milk [steal] Fiji’s public funds. This programme, valued at $420,000, is only a tiny gesture by C J Patel and Sanitarium for illegally milking millions from Fiji. Sanitarium Australia has no problems scamming the Fiji people and ignoring the plight of the oppressed people of Fiji. Not a very Christian organisation!
Is Bainimarama and his non-indigenous/native Fijian family and friends so ashamed to be associated with the indigenous Fijians that they will only claim to be Fijian if the Fijian word does not also apply to the Native Fijians? Such stupidity is amazing and racist against the native Fijians!
I have Chinese born Russian friends who call themselves Chinese. Racially they are Russians, but culturally they think and speak and act Chinese! The native Chinese call themselves Chinese and they know who they are. This is the same with many indo-Fijians I know and grew-up with. They are Fijian citizens but racially they are Indian. They look Indian! But culturally they think and act more like the native Fijians they grew-up with.
Fiji is the name of our beautiful group of islands and it also the name of the native/indigenous Fijian people. We are all Fijian citizens but racially we are different! God made us this way. Just as Citizens of Samoa are called Samoans and the natives are also called Samoan. The same with Tonga.
It appears that there are those, especially Bainimarama and Khaiyum and their family and friends, who do not want to be associated with or be classed at the same level or group as an indigenous/native Fijian. They see themselves as a high class and above the native/indigenous Fijians. Therefore they have connived to rename the native Fijians as iTaukei - which means someone who owns something, anything! This is evil, disgusting and racist and must be stopped!
Fiji's 2014 elections was rigged with help from corrupt and deceitful individuals, organisations, countries and the so-called high calibre and credible [NOT] MOG. Prof Wadan Narsey explains here that the 2014 Fiji elections was 'Far from free and fair: and it is another victory for treason, lies, deceit, money and the culture of silence.
