Prof Wadan Narsey explains in his article “Is FBS losing its independence? (edited version in FT 3/2/2018)” why Neutral national statistics, both economic and social, are absolutely necessary in order for any society to know if the economy and the well-being of the poorest and marginalized are improving. This statistical data on economic growth and distribution, including a wide range of other social statistics, can be used to measure, in an evidence-based way, the changes in well-being of all sections of the society.
The Australian Bureau of Statistic (ABS), writes Prof Narsey, says explicitly on their website that their purpose is to “deliver relevant, trusted, objective data, statistics and insights”. Their role as Australia’s national statistical agency is, among others, to provide “trusted official statistics on a wide range of economic, social, population and environmental matters of importance to Australia” and “developing and maintaining community trust”.
But this is NOT the case in Fiji and NOT under a corrupt and lying dictator like JV Bainimarama, who is running from the law for his crimes of sedition, treason, murder, rape and corruption!
The statistical data, writes Prof Narsey, also enables society to assess government’s performance based on the “evidence” of the data collected. So it is paramount that the collection of data is carried out by a “neutral” institution, totally independent of all political parties who are in government or the opposition.
So what does it mean when some political parties asked the Fiji’s Bureau of Statistics [FBS] for ethnic break-downs of the 2017 Census, the Government Statistician (Epeli Waqavonovono), “gave what was to me”, continues Pro Narsey, “an alarming answer: We did ask about people’s ethnicity, but the decision to release it has to come from higher authority. Once we are instructed then we will release it.”
This is a clear sign that the FBS is not a “neutral” institution! Nor is it independent of the corrupt and lying AG-Khaiyum, who is also the self-appointed minister for multiple portfolios that have all failed society since he took over. But he and his puppet dictator, JV Bainimarama, became multi-millionaires in the process and continue to rob Fiji and slowly steal native lands!!
Sadly, the indigenous Fijians sit silently by, watching their lands being stolen from under their noses, while they "taki" the next round of kava, because they are either too scared or too stupid to do anything about it. As a people they appear clueless on what to do about it, many naively think that their political party will win the next rigged election solely by having the most support and votes! This mentality is how they lost the rigged 2014 elections, with help from the corrupt observers from Australia and New Zealand! Einstein aptly described this level of intelligence, of doing the same thing over and over again, while hoping for a different result, as the definition of stupid.
Speaking of stupid, JV Bainimarama and his puppet master, in their arrogance and incompetence, have destroyed everything they touched, including the Fiji rugby union, the economy, education, roads, land and health! They also destroyed the Sugar industry, destroyed the fishing industry and the mahogany industry. Thousands of Fijians [both indigenous and non-indigenous] from across all backgrounds have been affected by their stupidity, with Fiji reaching its highest level of poverty, than ever before!
To make matters worse they added VAT to basic food items after they had promised during the 2014 elections that they would not increase VAT if they won! They broke that promise too, like all their other promises, and Fiji is experiencing its highest ever cost of living! They have also opened Fiji up to many of Khaiyum's "kind" and others who support their dictatorship, to keep them in power. In addition, Khaiyum is also implementing his sunset clause to rid Indigenous Fijians of their cultural autonomy and their much sort after lands!
Statistics will provide the evidence and the proof of Bainimarama and Khaiyum’s mismanagement, corruption and lies! So it’s no wonder that Khaiyum LIED about it in parliament proclaiming that no data had been collected in the 2017 census based on ethnicity. Even though the Government Statistician, Epeli Waqavonovono, had stated earlier that they had collected the data on ethnicity! This proves that Khaiyum deliberately LIED to parliament and to the people of Fiji.
Meanwhile, JV Bainimarama keeps getting paid his 30 pieces of silver, more like millions of dollars through the highest ever salary paid to a PM in Fiji, plus another $3,000 per day in overseas travel allowances for official visits and while on holiday, this does not include his taxpayer funded expense accounts, credit card, free travel, free house, free cars, free food and free jobs to more of his unqualified and incompetent family and military officers!
JV Bainimarama is the biggest con-artist to the people of Fiji - making false promises and lying to their face, while robbing them and doing and saying everything and anything to hide the truth from them!

Fiji's megalomaniac, corrupt and natural-born-liar, Sayed-Khaiyum, LIED in parliament when he stated that no data had been collected in the 2017 census based on ethnicity.
According to Fiji TV, however, the Fiji Bureau of Statistics had stated earlier in the year that "data on ethnicity in the 2017 census was collected and was waiting on a directive from a higher [no points for guessing who this is] to release the information".
When Fiji One News approached the corrupt Minister for Economy for a comment he replied that the Fiji Bureau of Statistics would release a statement and that he did not wish to comment any further. The two-faced hypocrite, AG-Khaiyum, has been caught out in yet another lie to the people of Fiji! Click HERE to read more.
We have also reproduced below a facebook post by Aklesh Vince Singh in Fiji Exposed Forum who reveals #CROOK_KHAIYUM_MISLEADS_PARLIAMENT.
"Opposition MP Bulitavu & NFP Leader MP Biman Prasad raise Point of Order against the AG today for misleading Parliament & the Fijian people on the collection of data on ethnicity in 2017 & 2000. AG lied by saying no data was collected on ethnicity in the 2017 census, he further lied that a census was done in 2000; there was none, only in 2007 and the 2007 census confirmed data was collected on ethnicity. The evidence tabled is before the Speaker and she has said that she will make a Ruling by the end of the week." wrote Aklesh Vince Singh.
Unfortunately, most educated people across Fiji and the world already know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Fiji's Speaker, the FAKE-doctor Jiko Luveni, is nothing more than another puppet of Fiji's corrupt and lying dictatorship, more specifically the megalomaniac AG, Khaiyum. In his arrogance, Khaiyum was rude to the poor fake doctor and insulted her by calling her a bloody academic! [See copy of transcript of parliamentary debate in the following image]. So with there being no rule of law in Fiji it is more than reasonable to think that this can only mean that the FAKE-doctor Luveni will now wait for Khaiyum to tell her what to officially say and do about the evidence.

The sesquipedalian [a person who overuses big words to show off] Fiji Human Rights Director, Ashwin Raj, is suddenly lost for words after being schooled by the visiting United Nations Human Rights Commissioner, Mr Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein's.
ABC's Pacific Beat programme reported that there's "been a positive reaction from human rights groups in Fiji to strong statements by the visiting United Nations Human Rights Commissioner during his three-day visit to Fiji. He said Fiji has overly broad media laws which are highly worrying, questioned the autonomy of institutions like the Constitutional Affairs Commission, the Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Commission, and the Fijian Elections Office". Click HERE to read more.
Mr Al Hussein, as reported in the Fiji Times, said he "was concerned with a basic structural flaw that bring into question whether these bodies were truly autonomous. He also said that independent national human rights institutions can be extremely effective in serving as a link between government and civil society". Click HERE to read more.
Nalini Singh, Chair of Fiji's NGO Coalition on Human Rights, says it was unusual but gratifying to hear such a senior United Nations official making such pointed statements about the state of human rights in the country".
Yes, this is truly unusual to hear after so many years, but its very welcome indeed! Finally, the truth is being told out loud by those at the top whose job it is to protect our Human Rights! If only the MOG who oversaw the Fiji 2014 elections were just as courageous and honest! Here's wishing that for the 2018 elections these corrupt mongrels would have acquired and grown the right stuff!
Many indigenous Fijians already know about JV Bainimarama's talent for lying and bullying, unfortunately some learnt about this the hard way, while some of the less educated are still blinded with all the cheap free gifts that their children will have to pay for in the future, while small minded fools can not see beyond their noses. Then there are the special ones who just believe anything he tells them! There are special doctors for people like this.
At the end of the day, JV Bainimarama has proven beyond reasonable doubt that he is nothing more than a lying, corrupt, murdering, rapist and dictator who is running from the law!
He is so desperate to remain in power that he is willing and able to cheat, lie and beat anyone who opposes him! He has no shame! This makes it easy for him to do what he does! I now understand why his own mother refused to enroll him at the same schools were she taught at. Bainimarama revealed this fact to a group of teachers, which was published in the newspapers.
But another of his big lies is that the native Fijian lands are safe. The land is not safe!
The dictionary defines "SAFE" as being protected from or not exposed to danger or risk; not likely to be harmed or lost.
So what does it mean when the indigenous landowners no longer have access, or any say or control over their land for 99 years? This term can also be easily extended to 999 years by Bainimarama or Khaiyum, if they feel like it? Anything can be done to the land during this time! And the landowners can't do anything about it! They have lost control of their lands!
JV Bainimarama is lying when he says that indigenous Fijians lands are safe! Its not safe for the landowners because they have lost control over it! They need to get it back! But their land is safe for Bainimarama and Khaiyum to use as they see fit, for however long as they want, charge what they want and then pay whatever tiny fraction of the lease they deem is sufficient for the landowners. Even then, the lease monies owed to the landowners is not paid out on time, or at all. There is always an excuse of everyone not having bank accounts. This is just an excuse to hold on to ALL the money. They can easily pay those who already have accounts! But they dont! You dont have to be a genius to figure out that the indigenous lands are not safe for the landowners, under the Bainimarama dictatorship. But you must be some special kind of moron to believe JV Bainimarama when he says its safe!
Opposition Member of Parliament, Niko Nawaikula, explains this lie by Bainimarama in his article, PRIME MINISTER LIES TO POOR NATIVES, duplicated here, as follows:
The Fiji Sun today , 15:2:2018 is reporting the Prime Minister as saying to the landowners of Sigatoka & Nadi ,"Do not feel insecure or threatened because your rights are protected under the Constitution."
In my opinion that statement is an absolute lie and the PM is commiting an outright lie sayng such nonsense.
The PM must be either blind, pretentious or cynical to say such an absolute lie to those natives that obviously know the truth.
The question to ask ,and im sure this must have been going through the minds of the thousands of natives that crowd him up at Sigatoka and Nadi, is who is the PM kidding.
Every native Fiiian know the PMs governments policy is the sunset clause with the aim & objective of removing their indigenous rights . Now can the PM deny his own sunset laws to remove those rights like the termination of the GCC, nationilising native institutions like Provincial Councils & ITLTB, nationilising the management of native land & denying rights to their resources like.qoliqoli.& minerals.
And with all that in mind the PM has the tenacity to say , " your rights are protected under the Constitution " . What very short memory does our PM has when his very own 2013 Constitution has removed the GCC & its Constituonal.role and right to prior consent that were there in.the 1970 & 1997 Constitution .
I say shame on you.PM and your Fiji First Government.
Shame on you for exploiting native owners & their native land.
Looking tgrough the annuncement you made to them at Nadi as reported by Fiji Sun it becomes absolutely clear to me thst itltb has given benefit to everyone else but the poor landowners. That to me is clear exploitation .
Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna convinced the chiefs & natives to give up their land to itltb using the parable of the talents. I can see Mr PM that you and your tltb have burried that talent and you must now be cast aside to where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Because success is not measured by how much money is distributed by itltb for consumption but by savings & investment and itltb has none of that.
Fiji Sun did not report how the landowners of vaturu spoke and wept in despair at itltbs failure to act for their benefit. For how is it that Vodafone, & others can use their land without any increase reflected in.rent received & how it is that the natives of sabeto can miss out on many years of reassesment of their rent.
The native landowners of this country have suffered enough injustice . They look foward to a SODELPA government to restore whats lost and turn their native land to investment.
Former Fiji sevens coach Ben Ryan said recently what others in Fiji already know, but can't speak about openly. Under JV Bainimarama's dictatorship, locals are more than aware that daring to speak the truth will evoke the deepest childish sentiments and tantrums of the lunatic dictator and his puppet queen, Khaiyum. Their childish intellect and temper tantrums are well know.
Ben Ryan is correct! In his comments to Radio New Zealand the Fiji 7s team are "still the lowest paid in the top ten sevens teams in the series by a long way and none are given the security of a contract longer than a season". That's right, the FRU is treating the Fiji 7s team like slaves and they are expected by the public to win every game! Come on!
There has been an outcry about the pittance in minimum wage increase in Fiji and Bainimarama's million dollar salary and $3,000 allowance per day on all his overseas trips. BUT sweet bugger all is said in support for the 7s team players who brought glory to Fiji in the Rio Olympics. Remember, that JV Bainimarama earned more salary in travel allowances while attending his fully funded Rio Olympics trip, then all the players earnings combined! So where is the outrage and support for the Fiji 7s team players to get a fair deal?
We cant expect our Fiji 7s team to play at their best while also worrying about how they will support their families? They have no proper contract for representing Fiji and winning! Their millions of dollars in funding has also disappeared! Promised only in words by the corrupt Vodafone to win sponsorship rights, then ignored thereafter! Bainimarama and his corrupt family got a free trip out of it, for ignoring the 7s players rights and needs!
Ben revealed to the fans that "The top players in the Fiji 7s squad get $FJ15,000 maximum as a salary. This is the equivalent of over three years salaries for the entire men's and women's sevens squad.....". Bainimarama's unqualified and corrupt children earn more from their daddy-given top government jobs, then the captain of the Fiji 7's team! Think about this for a minute!
So we agree with Ben Ryan when he says, "How about they [FRU] sort all of that out first for men's and women's teams - far bigger priority for sustaining sevens success. So is coach development on the island. So is player development programmes. So is referee development programmes. Better talent identification programmes." The list goes on.
And now the heavily corrupt Fiji Sun publication says that the "PM DID IT". What a load of rubbish!!
Fiji's dictator and Prime Minister, the lying and corrupt Voreqe Bainimarama, claimed, as reported in his propaganda newspaper, Fiji Sun, that "the new TappooCity development in Lautoka is proof positive that our journey forward as a nation isn’t only happening in Suva or down the Nadi coast".
What Bainimarama failed to say is that the owners of Tappoo City are great supporters and beneficiaries of his greed and corruption.
Bainimarama's puppet-master, who is also the FijiFirst Party general secretary and Attorney-General and Minister for many other government departments, sold his Berry Road property in Suva to Tappoo for an over-inflated price of $810,000. The property was worth $400,000. This was done to help Khaiyum avoid bankruptcy because he was unable to service his mortgage payments with the ANZ Bank. In return Tappoo has been the beneficiary of corruption, which includes millions of dollars in loans from FNPF, duty-free concessions and access to public land for development. FijiLeaks reported that tourists to Fiji could claim back VAT only on duty-free items purchased from outlets owned by Tappoos. Both Bainimarama and Khaiyum, and their families, benefit from Tappoo. The staff employed at the new Tappoo City also benefit, but for very different reasons and for much, much less.
Bainimarama also said that "it's about attracting investment, creating jobs and making Lautoka – and our entire Western Division – a better place to live, work and – quite simply – enjoy life". But he increased the cost of basic everyday food items by adding 9% VAT! It used to be VAT free, zero rated! He and his puppet master Khaiyum promised in 2014 that it would not be increased. They lied to Fiji. In addition, the new TappooCity will affect small shops and hawkers and the people they employ, ultimately threatening them with a decline in business and closure. Crime has also increased by 30% Children must attend school in tents and others must wade across rivers to get to school. There is also 'no rule of law' to protect investors and their investments. Local businesses must go with the flow or risk losing their investments.
Bainimarama also boasts about "delivering new roads, bridges, water, electricity and telecommunications infrastructure, and a state-of-the-art airport in Nadi". All very nice, and it would be even better if they had been done correctly. The huge national debt and Auditor General's reports suggests that these developments have been more than generously funded, well above the actual quality of work produced. The roads have easily washed away in heavy rains and are now full of pot-holes. To fix them will require millions more. More debt and corruption! The water, electricity and telecommunications are still intermittent despite the millions in investments. The state-of-the-art airport with its self-service, has made life easier for travelers. But how many staff did that technology replace?
He also claimed, “My fellow Fijians, the Fiji we know today wasn’t built by talk, smiles and false promises – which is all that those in the Opposition have to offer – it has been built by my Government’s commitment to deliver real development that is making real differences in the lives of the Fijian people" The Fiji we know today has been created under the Bainimarama dictatorship who have been in power since December 2006. They have taken Fiji to its highest levels of poverty! Highest cost of living! Highest unemployment! Highest crime rate! Highest level of human rights abuse, nepotism and Corruption! The lowest levels of investments and the highest level of national debt! Bainimarama and Khaiyum also destroyed the Sugar Industry that used to employ thousands in the Western Division, not any more! The Fishing industry and Mahogany industries have also been destroyed by Bainimarama's greed and stupidity!
There's just too many holes in Bainimarama's fancy speeches! The media in Fiji, and in other countries, is not allowed to question him. He ran away before question time at the COP23 meeting. But try and question him, especially about the truth, even use simple words, and you will see a lunatic-child come to the fore. There are snippets of his previous interviews doing the rounds on social media! It shows a person unable to answer simple questions. At first glance you might think he had just learned to speak English. Sadly, some even argue that it is the best comedy to come out of Fiji.
The dictator's broadcasting corporation, the FBC, reported that the dictator, Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama, is reminding Fijians to protect themselves from those that will only use them to help themselves or benefit themselves.
But it is Voreqe Bainimarama who in the last 11 years has become a multi-millionaire while Fiji is facing its highest levels of poverty, its highest cost of living, an additional 9% increase of VAT on basic food items, highest levels of unemployment, theft of indigenous lands and resources. Under JV Bainimarama Fiji has reached its highest levels of corruption and debt. The health and education systems have failed, and so have the fishing and mahogany industries, including the once lucrative Sugar industry. Even Bainimarama's so called free school, free medicine and free bus-fares isnt free for everyone, only a select few.
However, Bainimarama continued his rant in an attempt to fool the people while opening the Sauva rural electrification project outside Nausori. He claims that "Fiji cannot risk all of the progress that it has made over the years due to certain politicians who aren’t in your position and don’t understand their situation". He rants on that "Fijians must not allow this behavior to stall the nation’s journey forward". Oh really! But progress and the journey forward has only been for him and his corrupt family and friends! He gave his unqualified children and family top government jobs, well beyond their intellectual abilities! The auditor general has also highlighted the staggering amount of corruption committed under Bainimarama, which runs into hundred's of millions of dollars!
Bainimarama's puppet master also removed indigenous Fijians from top government positions and replaced them with unqualified family and friends from "his kind". The Indigenous Fijian language has been banned from being spoken in Fiji's parliament and the Great Council of Chiefs that oversee's the affairs of indigenous Fijians has been removed, while the Muslim league and other community groups continue! The indigenous Fijians have also been renamed as a race and are now referred to as owners of something, anything, like the owners of toilet paper! Their lands are also being stolen without their consent or control. So what progress is Bainimarama referring to?
He says "we must keep Fiji on the path of progress and the fast track of development as well as building Sauva village including every city, town, village and community". It was reported that 27 households in Sauva settlement will now receive affordable access to electricity through the government’s rural electrification project. This is very nice, but there are well over 1000 communities nation wide and over half still remain neglected after 11 years of Bainimarama's dictatorship!
So who is Bainimarama referring to when he reminded Fijians to protect themselves from "those" that will only use them to help themselves or benefit themselves. Yes, who has benefited the most from Bainimarama's dictatorship? Look at the facts and at Bainimarama's actual record over the past 11 years, his actual record and not what his supporters and the corrupt Fiji Sun newspaper claims he has done, but his actual record! Do this and you will know the truth!
Its clear that its not the indigenous Fijians who are benefiting, nor is it the families affected by the failed fishing, mahogany and sugar industries! Its certainly not those living in poverty, or the unemployed, or those suffering from the failed education and health system! So protect yourselves from the "real culprits" that are "only using you" to help themselves and benefit their corrupt family and friends!
Happy New Year!
Fiji's First kaisi bakola Prime Minister and low-down half-caste dictator, JV Bainimarama, from Kiuva, killed an unborn child in December 2006! JV Bainimarama intentionally jumped up and down on the back of the pregnant mother who had been forced to lay down on her tummy! Eye witnesses claim that JV Bainimarama began laughing when he was told the woman was pregnant, but he did not stop! This is down right murder! This is in adiition to his murder of CRW soldiers in 2000!
This story, however, is one you won’t see in Fiji’s well-controlled media. It is the story of JV Bainimarama's brutal crackdown on pro-democracy activists in the wake of his treasonous coup when he seized power in December 2006. Suva businesswoman, Laisa Digitaki, who was pregnant at the time, had converted her office building into a pro-democracy shrine in the wake of the coup, but it was demolished by gunmen, whom Digitaki accused of being military personnel. Click HERE to read more about LAISA DIGITAKI’S Statement and the sequence of events that involved five PRO-DEMOCRACY members being rounded up and bashed-up by Fiji's brave RFMF thugs and Dictator on DECEMBER 24th and 25th of 2006.
So if you are one of those special kind of people who thinks that the 2018 general election in Fiji will be free and fair, then you are either a corrupt FijiFirst Party beneficiary or simply retarded! JV Bainimarama needs to remain in power or he will be put in prison for his crimes! So he will do anything to win and stay out of prison while milking millions for himself and his family and friends. This includes rigging the elections, again, most likely with the same help he got from the corrupt and incompetent trash in the Multinational Observer Group in 2014!
It is therefore necessary, and damn right expected, that the opposition parties actually know and understand what they are dealing with, and more importantly, that they know how to counter and defeat a rigged election come election day 2018!
After eleven years of dictatorship, lies, corruption and over $5 billion in national debt the patience of the oppressed and cheated people of Fiji is at an end. It is the hope and wish of many of these honest, just and hardworking Fijians that TRUE Rule of Law, Freedom, Anti-corruption and Democracy returns in 2018.
The evidence that the country has suffered under JV Bainimarama and Khaiyum's lies, high corruption, land theft, nepotism, vote rigging, indigenous cultural genocide, no rule of law, no human rights, no free media, false equal citizenry, false secular state, and blatant mismanagement is superabundant.
For too long the military and the police have stood aside, collecting their 30 pieces of silver, and allowed JV Bainimarama and his megalomaniac puppeteer, khaiyum, to cheat, rob and insult the people of Fiji. This goes beyond all morals and decency and it is high time that they did their duty to protect the people over the financial interests of corrupt politicians and their corrupt family and friends.
2018 is election year in Fiji, many are hoping and praying for change, and the Opposition parties are expected to know how to defeat a rigged election!
