August - September 2021
Fiji's Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Rosy Akbar told Parliament that violence against women is a matter of grave concern, as Fiji’s statistics on violence against women rates amongst the highest in the world. 72% of Fijian women experience one or more types of violence which include physical, emotional and sexual violence in their lifetime from their husbands or intimate partners. In 2019, 10 women lost their lives due to intimate partner violence; in 2020, 4 women lost their lives the same way.
Meanwhile, Fiji's First woman bashing PM Frank JV Bainimarama is sitting in front of Akbar.
Maybe Akbar should be talking directly to Bainimarama, to get both him and his son Meli to stop their coward ways of beating defenceless women. After all, attitude reflects leadership, and Frank has set a very-low standard for men across the country. Minister Akbar has just provided the results, and further proof, of Frank's poor leadership.
I can't help but draw comparison to the recent openly transgender athlete who competed in mixed martial arts in the United States and won her fight by beating a female opponent. So maybe, both Frank and his son could join this MMA event, and get to beat-up women. But wait, wawa mada, there is a catch. In the MMA, the women fight back!!
The latest 2019-20 House Income and Expenditure Survey [HIES] report proves that Frank Bainimarama has been lying to the indigenous Fijians for over 15 years. It also shows that he has been making fools of them, telling them that they are far better-off under his dictatorship, when they are not!
Indigenous Fijians are actually worse-off under Bainimarama! Read on.
Prof Narsey says the different HIES reports show that over the last decade, the numbers of indigenous Fijian households and persons living in poverty has been rising rapidly, while Indo-Fijian numbers have decreased. This has occurred under Bainimarama’s corrupt and failed leadership!
The different HIES reports show:
2002-03 HIES Indigenous Fijians 49% Indo-Fijian 47%
2008-09 HIES Indigenous Fijians 57% Indo-Fijian 38%
2019-20 HIES Indigenous Fijians 75% Indo-Fijian 23%
The Indigenous Fijians level of poverty was 49% before Bainimarama overthrew the Qarase govt in 2006, then it got worse rising to 75% after Bainimarama took power! An increase of 26%.
This proves that Indigenous Fijians are NOT doing better, or improving, under Bainimarama’s failed leadership. This is a FACT! The numbers don’t lie.
Bainimarama and Khaiyum have been trying to cover up and hide this truth from indigenous Fijians, while also giving out cheap free-gifts and making false promises before each election. They managed, however, to fool many Indigenous Fijians into supporting them, some more easily than others, for a few pieces of silver. You know who you are!
The 2019-20 HIES main report shows that 192,977 Indigenous Fijians are living in poverty! And Indigenous Fijians make up 74.8% of the poor in Fiji.
Remember, that the HIES figures are BEFORE Covid hit Fiji, and before the mass lay-offs, so it's safe to assume that those poverty numbers are far higher today.
Unfortunately, for doing his job and reporting the facts, the Fiji Bureau of Statistics CEO Kemueli Naiqama was fired. This is the result of another temper tantrum by the childish and megalomaniac AG Sayed-Khaiyum. His tantrum also says that Fiji is being run by corrupt imbeciles!
In addition, the report also reveals that Khaiyum lied in Parliament, when he stated that NO data had been collected on ethnicity! Yeah right!
Yes, Bainimarama has been lying and making a fool of Indigenous Fijians with his cheap handouts and nice, fancy words that mean nothing!
So to my indigenous Fijian brothers and sisters, I say, remember who you are! You are the proud indigenous peoples of Fiji. You are Fijian!
Bainimarama and Khaiyum have been trying to hide your ethnicity data, so that you remain clueless to the fact that you, as indigenous Fijians, are worse off under Bainimarama’s corrupt leadership. The HIES report proves that.
Stand up and demand answers!
The Bureau of Statistics [BoS] reveals Sayed Khaiyum and Frank Bainimarama trying to hide the TRUTH about how badly indigenous Fijians are being treated under their corrupt leadership!! We may all be Fijians, but it's clear that we are NOT all equal!
A few weeks ago, the Fiji police, acting under the orders of Prime Minister Bainimarama, took in Opposition political leaders for "questioning" merely because they had protested in parliament that a parliamentary bill was being tabled by Government without adequate public consultation.
There was no protest from the Public Service Commission or the Fiji Law Society at this blatant misuse of police powers.
Then the corrupt and treasonous Speaker of the House Epeli Nailatikau refused to allow a motion by the Opposition to discuss the COVID-19 crisis. A crisis that has killed over 500 Fiji citizens and made tens of thousands of people ill, stretching the health system to breaking point. What an imbecile!
The public did not protest Nailatikau's blatant misuse of his "alleged" neutral position, and neither have they protested at any of his many other blatant collaborations with treason since 1987. Ignoring Nailatikau's shady and treasonous past, one blogger tweeted "it is tragic to see the dramatic fall in public estimation for the once revered former president, soldier and diplomat."
Today, many civil society organisations and bloggers are calling for the resignation of the most visible and corrupt Bainimarama Government Minister, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum.
But Fiji must recognise that the real control of Fiji is NOT in the hands of Khaiyum. He is just a puppet, performing for his masters and therefore allowed to do pretty much what he wants, so long as they are well paid and kept out of prison.
The real control is in the hands of the RFMF headed by dictator and murderer Prime Minister Bainimarama, whose 2006 treason has been fully backed for sixteen years by former military commanders like Epeli Nailatikau, the military hierarchy, Jioji Konrote and Bainimarama's goons like Qiliho, Naliva and Rokoura and others, who have been quietly enjoying the benefits of treason for decades. Remember, that Bainimarama, who was broke before his 2006 coup became an overnight multi-millionaire all thanks to Khaiyum! The RFMF hierarchy and troops are also enjoying higher salaries and benefits.
This puts the RFMF at another crossroad and to understand the deep mess that they and Fiji are in today, the Fiji public must stop being diverted by the deliberate weekly distracting antics of Khaiyum and Bainimarama and remember the sordid history of RFMF's commanders, prominent politicians and chiefs since 1987.
fijivillage reported that Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, a FAILED Lawyer, said that the Court of Disputed Returns ruling in the case of SODELPA MP Niko Nawaikula had set the cat amongst the pigeons, and it needs to be corrected. Oh really!
The failed lawyer who has never won a case in court was "disturbed" by the submissions made by the legal counsels of the Supervisor of Elections and Nawaikula. What's disturbing is Khaiyum's childish reaction to the loss! It seems that he thought he would win! This is the attitude of a spoiled brat who thinks he is smarter than everyone!
Sayed-Khaiyum's nasty, evil plan to have Nawaikula kicked out of parliament failed! So now Khaiyum aims to amend the laws to ensure people register as a voter with their birth certificate name or with a name that is legally changed. Some people never learn!
Chief Justice Kamal Kumar had ruled that Niko Nawaikula is to be reinstated as a Member of Parliament from 23rd July, 2021.
The type of statement you make, when you failed form 4 [year 10] twice, can't explain GDP or VAT, looted millions from the people, and you're corrupt as hell!
Veronica Malani filed a judicial review against the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. This was after Fiji’s corrupt and bent DPP Christopher Pryde ignored five witnesses and dictated that there was insufficient, credible and reliable evidence to support criminal charges being laid against his boss the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum. What a joke!
On 7 Jan 2021, DPP Christopher Pryde announced that he had decided that no charges will be laid against the Attorney-General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, in relation to his alleged involvement in two bombing incidents in 1987.
Christopher Pryde [a New Zealander] was appointed to the job by the very same Sayed-Khaiyum, whom he is trying to protect. But Malani’s case is not against Fiji’s Attorney-General, it is against Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum who just happens to be the Attorney-General. Remember, this is the same Christopher Pryde who said there was not enough evidence to charge dictator Frank Bainimarama who had assaulted Pio Tikoduadua. There were eyewitnesses and video evidence! Clearly, Christopher Pryde is willing to ignore the rule of law and bend backwards [a position he seems very comfortable with] to help his masters!
The corrupt Solicitor General, who was also appointed by Sayed-Khaiyum, is representing Sayed-Khaiyum. In addition, Malani’s case was heard at the Suva High Court by the then Acting Chief Justice Kamal Kumar, who was also appointed by Sayed-Khaiyum. See the pattern here?
In Fiji, there is clearly one set of laws for the new elite under Bainimarama’s dictatorship and another for the rest of us. This makes a mockery of the judicial independence, separation of powers and the rule of law!
Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, as the AG should have stepped down and allowed the police to conduct its investigations. He did not. Instead, he threw a tantrum like the little immature child he is and attempted to intimidate and threaten Malani into dropping her case. He used stupid police officers, military thugs, and drones. It all failed! Malani is not afraid of Sayed-Khaiyum's threats!
When asked by a journalist if Sayed-Khaiyum should step down, Fiji’s highly corrupt and murderer PM Frank Voreqe Bainimarama, who failed form 4 twice and can’t explain GDP, told the journalist not to ask him, but to go and ask Sayed-Khaiyum. Bainimarama and Sayed-Khaiyum are thick as thieves!
The whole system and process surrounding Malani’s case sure does stink of rotten corruption and intimidation! At her last hearing, supporters, journalists and members of the public were barred from the court. Covid restrictions was the excuse. It was also claimed that a truck load of police was brought in.
Veronica Malani stated to police that it was Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum she saw that day, who threw the bomb in 1987 that seriously injured both her and her mother. She was 13 at the time. A bystander died during another one of the attacks, which makes Sayed-Khaiyum a murderer! There were witnesses.
Malani’s case has been adjourned to 3 September 2021. So we will need to wait until then to see what other dirty tactics Sayed-Khaiyum comes up with. The case however will be heard by Kamal Kumar who was confirmed by Fiji's minister for everything Sayed-Khaiyum, as Fiji’s new Chief Justice.
The world is watching!
The FijiTimes reports Opposition MP Niko Nawaikula saying that the Supervisor of Elections Mohammed Saneem had “caused great embarrassment to the Office of the Speaker” when he unlawfully removed his name from the Register of Voters, and caused the Speaker to declare his seat in Parliament vacant.
But the Speaker Epeli Nailatikau should have known better, and should at least have applied some common sense to have matters verified before moving to instantly remove Niko from Parliament. But he didn't. This makes Nailatikau incompetent and foolish, so he brought the embarrassment upon himself and his office. Remember, this is the same Nailatikau who ruled that the word IMBECILE was not an un-parliamentary word, because it was the AG Khaiyum who had said it! What an imbecile!
Nawaikula told Parliament that the concern was, as Supervisor of Elections, he [Saneem] should know what laws apply. The court found that Saneem [who was appointed to the job by his uncle the minister for everything Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, without meeting the minimum qualifications] had the discretion to deal with the matter and not take it to court. This suggests that a conniving evil tactic by Sayed-Khaiyum was in play. But it failed, again!! Saneem has lost other similar cases in court, this more than qualifies him to be SACKED NOW!
Anyone with half a brain will know that Saneem isn't the brightest spark, so it's more than very likely that he would have been following instructions issued by his uncle, a failed lawyer.
He [Saneem] took advantage of the office of the Speaker and acted unlawfully, said Nawaikula, and it allowed the Speaker to terminate my seat unnecessarily. "But in any event, a good thing came out of it". Oh really!
The decision was a win for democracy, continued Nawaikula, because in any democracy, we need a very strong judiciary and court process. Yes, true, but Fiji is not a democracy, it's a dictatorship! Nor does Fiji have a very strong judiciary and court process, not since December 2006, and history since then has shown that it also lacks independence. So I would argue that the win was due to the high profile and top-notch quality of Nawaikula's legal team that comprised Fiji's top legal minds, and the judge knew that!
In welcoming Mr Nawaikula back to parliament, the imbecile and treasonous Speaker Ratu Epeli said that the Court of Disputed Returns had determined in a judgement delivered on August 17, 2021, “that in removing Hon. Nawaikula’s name from the Register of Voters, the actions of the Supervisor of Elections were unlawful, disproportionate and wrongful”. But the Speaker never questioned the actions of the Supervisor of Elections and eagerly accepted it. What a tool!
Nawaikula said the Court of Disputed Returns had found the Speaker acted in accordance with the Constitution at all times. Mmmmm.....sounds like the judge is trying hard to spit shine a pair.
Nawaikula then gets carried away, saying that the court’s ruling also sent out a message to ordinary Fijians that they could rely on the rule of law and independence of the court to protect them. Is he still talking about Fiji??? There have been many cases since December 2006 where the existence of the rule of law and the independence of the courts have been questioned!
In addition, not everyone can afford to hire the same quality of Nawaikula's legal team to represent them! They are not cheap! This is an issue with the legal system, where justice depends on what you can afford and in Fiji, it also depends on whether you are liked or hated by the dictatorship!
So in Niko's case, I argue that it was the sum of his legal team's individual expertise and high standing in the legal profession that made the difference! Because a lesser team may not have achieved the same results.
A fund-raising campaign has been organised to help Niko pay his legal costs. I hope they offered him "mates-rates"!
Decent intelligent people across Fiji must be wondering why Bainimarama and Sayed-Khaiyum contemptuously refuse to work together with Opposition MPs, and even the NGOS who are struggling each day to help the suffering people of Fiji.
But those close to them and their corporate friends know that both Bainimarama and Sayed-Khaiyum have no intention of sharing in the future suffering of Fiji.
They and their corrupt family and friends (we know who they all are) have their loot stashed away overseas. This includes their millions of bribes and commissions on hundred million dollar contracts at Momi, Natadola and Fiji Airways.
So when the shit hits the fan, Bainimarama and Khaiyum will bail out and leave the rest of Fiji to drown.
All the corporate types (Tappoos, Punjas, Patels, Kabas, etc.) who sit on all the powerful boards will also bail out and run to their PRs in Australia, NZ, Canada and US where their wives and children already reside, leaving all their debts to FNPF and FDB.
Meanwhile, the Opposition MPs yack, yack and yack, unable even to form a united front party that can get rid of these two evil men from the government of Fiji.
Isa, our dear Fiji.
Frank Bainimarama stated that his broke government is well ahead of the game when it comes to vaccinations. This is the same imbecile who said that no other country could match Fiji's management of the Covid-19 virus, and that Australia and New Zealand could learn from Fiji. Then a couple of months later, he is begging Australia and New Zealand to send help!
Now he claims that Fiji is ahead of the game when 360 people have died from the Covid delta variant that his lunatic AG Sayed-Khaiyum brought into the country in April.
More people are dying from the Delta variant, with Fiji topping the world's infection rate!
And the only reason Fiji is in this mess is because of criminal Frank Bainimarama who controls the guns, and threatens to use them against anyone who dares to challenge his stupid and failed leadership!
Unfortunately, Covid-Delta isn't intimidated by an uneducated imbecile with a gun!
FijiTimes front page says PM gives back [na sona sara!] What is he giving back? A million dollars from the 100's of million he and Khaiyum have stolen from Fiji? Yeah right!
Bainimarama is not giving back anything. And his government is broke from 15 years of his incompetent and corrupt leadership! So when Bainimarama says that there is one million for the Fiji sevens team, he is talking about taxpayer funds or some corrupt business that will benefit from providing building materials and services! Unless, Bainimarama intends to take it from the foreign donations and aid money or loans meant to help Fiji in its time of crisis.
Remember, Bainimarama likes to show off and his record is filled with lots of bullshit claims and fancy words. For example, his promise of 100 horses, but years later, that village is still waiting for the first horse! There's many more examples!
Don't get me wrong, the sevens players have done Fiji proud, and they do deserve a reward. But now is not the time for such lavish rewards. It can be postponed.
Fiji is broke with a Covid crisis and 290 deaths. There are over 200,000 living in poverty and struggling to make ends meet. So the reward for the sevens team could be postponed until the crisis is under control. In the meantime, however, citizens have started fundraising campaigns to help the players. The FRU says this is illegal because they didn't approve it [or won't get a cut out of it].
With a broke Bainimarama govt, the million dollars is likely to be diverted from other essential services. Money that could be better spent on frontline workers and health equipment and services during Fiji's Covid crisis.
Alternatively, the million dollars for the players could easily be donated by Frank Bainimarama, Sayed-Khaiyum and Nur Bano Ali. We know they can afford it, because of the millions they have looted from Fiji, which is revealed in the Auditor General's reports.
There would be no need for fundraising if our medal winning Olympians were given a decent remuneration for their achievements. Unfortunately, this is Fiji where corruption and looting of funds by officials is the new normal. So when the jubilant people fundraise for the teams, the FRU says it needs their approval.
Remember, the FRU CEO John O'Connor and the then Chairman of FRU Francis Kean [both appointed by and related to dictator Frank Bainimarama] were exposed on social media after being caught on camera taking money from gate sales.
Fijilive reported that the Fiji Rugby Union had clarified that it had not approved or endorsed any fundraising activities for the Fijian and Fijiana 7s teams.
The Fiji Rugby 7's team management had complained to the FRU about the fundraising activities. Wow!
O’Connor stated that a few entities, individuals and social clubs had started circulating and promoting fundraising activities for both teams online, in particular through social media. He also said, that while FRU appreciates the kind gesture and support for the teams, public fundraising initiatives must comply with all relevant laws including permits, tax clearance and sanctions by Team Fiji or Fiji Rugby with transparent processes.
Meanwhile, the FRU has not been transparent in its processes, especially in its management of funds!
Fiji's least educated PM Frank JV Bainimarama who failed form 4 twice, can't explain GDP or VAT and doesn't follow his own illegal constitution or rules, tells NZ media that Fiji can't go into lock down because the people of Fiji are "uneducated" compared to NZ and Australia!! What a load of rubbish!
This is a clear case of pot calling the kettle black!
The people of Fiji have been asking for a lockdown, but Bainimarama refuses! The people also called for the border to be closed last year, but Bainimarama refused. Now Fiji has over 200 deaths and averaging almost 1,000 new Covid delta cases recorded each day! All because of Fiji's least educated PM Frank Bainimarama!

Fiji's corrupt and incompetent police have called back members of the Opposition to their CID Headquarters for a third round of questioning. The members had commented on Sayed-Khaiyum's Land Bill-17 that has already been passed into law.
So it now seems more to do with fear and intimidation tactics, ordered by Fiji's least educated and corrupt PM Frank Banimarama and his childish AG Sayed Khaiyum.
Both use the police and other govt institutions to instil fear and intimidation on the opposition and anyone they don't like! They have used this tactic since December 2006 with continued support from Australia and New Zealand who turn a blind eye to the tyranny!
This also means the police commissioner Tudravu [and the military Commander Naupoto for that matter] are both idiots! They appear to be too immature to understand right from wrong, unless they do know the difference but are too corrupt or afraid to do the right thing and defend the people from tyranny!!
Fiji Airways CEO Andrej Viljoen lies to the nation? Tells the nation in August 2020 that leased aircraft cannot be returned, so $38 million of taxpayer money was needed each month to meet costs. Meanwhile, other airlines were cancelling contracts and returning their leased aircraft. But not Fiji airways! Then in July 2021, Fiji airways returns two leased aircraft before the expiry of their leases.
Fiji has been suffering its highest levels of unemployment and cost of living, with workers forced to use their own retirement savings because the government is broke! Broke from 15 years of mismanagement, incompetence and corruption! Over 200,000 now live in poverty and struggling to make ends meet.
Millions in foreign aid and donations are looted by government and do not reach the people who need it. However, $38 million is paid each month for aircraft that have sat idle on the tarmac!
