The Fiji dictatorship’s propaganda newspaper, Fiji Sun, reported [August 02, 2018] that ‘Mums Hail Baby Grant’. This is the government’s new Parenthood Assistance Payment scheme of $1,000 for new born babies, announced in the latest budget. Many suggest that this is just another attempt by the Fiji First party to buy votes. Fiji’s dictator, JV Bainimarama, says it’s to help the people. This is election year.
The 30 year old mother and her husband celebrated the birth of their fifth child, claimed the Fiji Sun, and were delighted to be receiving $1,000 on their daughter’s behalf. “It was surreal. The birth was smooth. The $1,000 is a bonus”, said the mother. Her husband is also entitled to five days paternity leave as part of the scheme.
But the parents will not receive the whole amount. Only $500 is paid out with the balance held back in the bank account until the child reaches a certain age. To access the grant the child will first need to be registered and application forms need to be completed. Only those earning less than $30,000 can apply.
Many think this is just another scam like the free bus fare scheme that has since stopped, and the free medicine that is not for all and is often not available when needed, and how about the free milk that is often expired or never delivered, then there is the free education where parents are still asked to make “donations” because government funds are not forthcoming.
But $500 is still a lot of money and any assistance is welcome especially as Fiji faces its highest ever cost of living after Bainimarama broke a 2014 election promise to not add VAT tax on basic foods. But as soon as Bainimarama won his rigged election he added 9% VAT tax to basic foods. This increased the cost of living for the poor.
Bainimarama also increased the national debt after he committed treason and overthrew the last democratically elected government in his coup in 2006. He borrowed a lot of money and increased Fiji's national debt from $2.7 Billion in 2006 to $5.5 billion in 2018. This increase in debt includes the missing $400 million stolen by Bainimarama as identified by the Auditor General.
All this debt has to be repaid and it’s Fiji’s future generations who will be paying if off. This means that under the corrupt and lying JV Bainimarama the new born baby already owes $6,200 and she is not yet a month old.
