Pio Tikoduadua, President of the National Federation Party.
The Fiji dictatorship has elected its next President.
FBC News reported that Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama had said that it was “he” [and not Parliament or the people] who chose Ratu Wiliame Katonivere for President because Fiji needs a sound and bold Head of State. Bainimarama was adamant that the Turaga na Tui Macuata has the qualities to continue to take Fiji forward and that Katonivere is a well-disciplined and strong leader who is rightly fit to be Head of State. Yeah right!
But how can Katonivere be a well-disciplined leader when he can’t even control his own weight? And where is he taking Fiji forward to when he has no say on the matter?
By now, anyone with half a brain knows that the Katonivere’s role as President of Fiji is nothing more than a puppet position, just like the incumbent Rotuman Jioji Konrote has done, to rubber stamp everything the megalomaniac Sayed-Khaiyum says or does. This is the only discipline needed. Otherwise, he would not have been selected.
So when Bainimarama says that he is “confident that the leadership position has been given to a leader and a chief that is firm and is strong….Firm leadership is what is needed in Fiji”, he is actually saying that Katonivere will do as he is told, like a good corrupt and incompetent military officer and Chief, to protect the dictatorship from the people, and look the other way at its corruption and illegal activities.
Katonivere will do all this, happily, like a good boy, for his thirty pieces of silver, that he and his family will enjoy. They will enjoy their new fortune while over 230,000 Fijians live in poverty and thousands struggle to make ends meet. Katonivere is also president of the governing FijiFirst party that has put more indigenous Fijians into poverty from 49% to 75%, since they came to power by overthrowing the last democratically elected Qarase Govt.
Bainimarama also said that Katonivere is a staunch advocate for the protection of our natural and marine resources and also works on climate change issues. Meanwhile, Katonivere has not said or done anything against the damage done to the natural and marine resources like the reef at Malolo island which Bainimarama’s family is involved in destroying, the Bauxite mine and the removal of sand from Sigatoka. Unfortunately, Katonivere will be another puppet president for the Fiji dictatorship.
Health workers have indicated that Covid is widespread and the low number of new cases being reported does not reflect reality. We were finding too many new positive cases each day, in the hundreds, said the source, so the Fiji govt decided to decrease the number of daily tests we do. So now we do far fewer tests and report a lower number of positive cases. It's all fake! They [Govt] just want to fool the international communities that Fiji is safe, complained the source.
FijiTimes says that the Fiji Government has recovered $484 million from the 2020-2021 budget. Yeah right! What the Fiji Times meant to say was that the Fiji Govt had reported that it had recovered $484 million.
But how can the Govt recover or claim to have saved money that it didn't have! After all, it was only a budget! You know, a documented estimate of income and expenditure!
However, the FijiTimes article happily reports that 51 ministries and government entities saved money in the 2020-2021 fiscal year except for pensions, gratuities and compassionate allowances payments that exceeded payments by $3300.
Once upon a time, the Royal Fiji Military Forces [RFMF] had great integrity and international reputation.
There were brave and principled warriors like Sukainivalu who earned the Victoria Cross by sacrificing his own life for his comrades.
The soldiers fought bravely for the British Crown in the Malaya campaign.
And there were principled RFMF Commanders like Colonel Ian Thorpe.
Until one day in 1987, the RFMF and its Commander Epeli Nailatikau followed third ranked Rabuka into treason against a democratically elected Bavadra Government "because it was led by Indo-Fijians". Eventually, Rabuka became Prime Minister.
But Rabuka saw the light and changed the constitution into a democratic one. Democracy saw him lose in 1999.
Then in May 2000, some CRW soldiers, under secret orders from their Commander Frank JV Bainimarama, and some Republic of Fiji Military Forces [RFMF 2.0] officers, committed treason against another democratically elected Chaudhry Government, again "because it was led by Indo-Fijians".
The President and Commander in Chief refused to support the coup. And so did many senior RFMF officers, who had also refused to support Bainimarama as Prime Minister.
So, the two-faced Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, who was supposed to replace Speight, chickened out and left Speight waiting. Bainimarama also chickened out and deflected all blame onto his CRW soldiers. When a few CRW mutinied against Bainimarama (who soiled himself while running for his life), 5 were tortured and murdered in cold blood. Bainimarama had murdered one of them, smashed a brick over his head. But noone has ever been charged. Justice is not for everybody in Fiji, where some are definitely MORE EQUAL than others.
The indigenous Fijian Government of Qarase was "appointed" by the RFMF 2.0.
But by now, Bainimarama and the vile officer wolves of the RFMF had tasted blood. They knew that they no longer had to respect the laws of Fiji, democracy, and the will of the people.
Bainimarama now demanded "personal loyalty" from his officers, sacking those who refused. The Qarase Govt also wanted him gone and refused to renew his contract. Bainimarama then threatened his Minister and lied to the ailing President. A weak Vice President gave in.
Then in 2006, Commander Bainimarama committed treason, again, but now it was not against an Indo-Fijian government, but against the indigenous Fijian led Government of Qarase. Police Commissioner Hughes was also out to arrest Bainimarama for his crimes of treason, sedition, murder and disobeying orders.
Unfortunately, the RFMF, like dumb sheep, followed Bainimarama into treason, tarnishing their reputation even more.
Encouraged by his "smart Kaindia Khaiyum" and many civilian traitors, the traitor Bainimarama made himself Prime Minister, and rigged the  constitution and the electoral system and "won" the 2014 and the 2018 elections.
But now, even the Fiji Sun Opinion Polls say he is going to lose the 2022 Elections.
So what will Commander Ro Jone Kalouniwai do then?
After the next elections, Commander Kalouniwai will face another personal cross-road.
Will he choose the "rule of law" and the "will of the people", or will he choose treason to support his Master’s Bainimarama and Khaiyum, when Bainimarama losses the elections?
If Ro Kalouniwai wants to commit treason, he knows he will be supported all the way by pathetic stooges like Epeli Nailatikau, Aziz, Aiyaz Khaiyum, Qiliho, Francis Kean, Mohammed Saneem, Ashwin Raj, Christopher Pryde, Riyaz Khaiyum, and Peter Lomas. Not forgetting the military goons, like Naliva and Rokoura and others, who go around threatening and torturing people who Bainimarama and Khaiyum don’t like.
But can Ro Kalouniwai look around Fiji today and find the equivalent of the following upright civilians who once supported the 2006 coup, the People's Charter Charade, the Yash Ghai Commission Charade, and the first Electoral Commission?
Mahendra Chaudhry, Kamlesh Arya, Dewan Chand Maharaj, the late Jokapeci Koroi, the late Jiko Luveni, John Samy, the late Archbishop Mataca, Rev David Arms, the late Rev Kevin Barr, Anthony Gates, Nazhat Shameem, Dr Shaista Shameem, Professor Satendra Nandan, Professor Subramani, Taufa Vakatale, the late Penny Moore, Chen Bunn Young, Larry Thomas, Professor Vijay Naidu, Jenny Seeto, Tom Ricketts, Sashi Singh, etc.? Not to mention the many stooges from Sri Lanka.
Even these "upright" citizens of Fiji can see what their support of the 2006 treason has brought Fiji to, and they are nowhere to be seen.
Except Mahendra Chaudhry who has switched sides and is fighting against Bainimarama and Khaiyum in partnership with Narube and Karunaratne.
Fiji is a disaster today!
For over fourteen years, Bainimarama and the RFMF hierarchy, and Khaiyum's corporate buddies, have fed at the trough of taxpayers' funds, and brought Fiji to its knees through their sheer greed and incompetence!
Public Debt is at a record five times what it was in 2006. There is now abject poverty for all Fijians, devastated by Khaiyum's mishandling of the COVID crisis.
Especially devastated are the indigenous Fijians who now make up 75% of the poor in Fiji, according to the 2019-20 HIES Report (even before COVID arrived).
The rank and file of the RFMF (99% indigenous Fijians) can all see the poverty around them and in their own families, unless they are too thick, blind and corrupt.
So, the Big Questions is, will Ro Kalouniwai restore RFMF integrity?
Today, RFMF Commander Ro Kalouniwai is at another crossroad for himself personally, and for the RFMF rank and file.
Will Ro Kalouniwai be the first Commander since 1987 to stand firm and support Fijian democracy and the right of the people to choose their government after the next elections?
Or will Ro Kalouniwai sell himself (like Ratu Epeli Nailatikau before him) and choose treason to support Bainimarama and Khaiyum and their ill-gotten gains?
Will the rank and file of the RFMF again blindly support treason, as they have done before? We hope not!
Or will they, for once since 1987 stand firm, and say "enough is enough. We will no longer support treason. Come what may."
Or will they for once take up their arms and fight for Fiji and defend the people's will against the evil traitors before them.
The world is watching.
Many still ask who really is in control of Fiji?...... The thinking public must, by now, know that Fiji's corrupt Prime Minister Bainimarama will do nothing about the continuing antics of Fiji's megalomaniac Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.
If this was Australia, New Zealand or Singapore, or any other truly democratic country, then Khaiyum would have been immediately sacked! Yes, SACKED! Which is what the CSO Alliance of brave women had called for. But not in Fiji! And certainly not under dictator Frank Bainimarama's corrupt and "koco" style of leadership!
Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum's childish antics include:
So why does Khaiyum continue on his arrogant path?
It's because he thinks he controls the corrupt and greedy military by feeding them lots of taxpayers money.
Most of all Khaiyum thinks that he totally controls Prime Minister Bainimarama whose 2006 treason has been fully backed for sixteen years by former military commanders (such as Epeli Nailatikau) and the military hierarchy who have been quietly enjoying the benefits of treason for decades: former commander (like Nailatkau), senior officers (like Seruiratu, Qiliho and Kean), and even the traitor President, a Rotuman, Jioji Konrote have been happily feeding at the trough.
So where to for the RFMF?
Naupote has been replaced as Commander of the RFMF by Kalouniwai, by completely bypassing his [Kalouniwai] superior Brigardier Aziz, who after all is NOT "equal" to all the iTaukei military officers who have bypassed him to become Commander.
In 2006, Bainimarama demanded personal loyalty from his officers and the rank and file of RFMF, despite committing heinous treason.
So will Commander Kalouniwai now also appeal to the RFMF rank and file and demand their personal loyalty, even if he commits treason to protect Bainimarama and Khaiyum when they lose the next election in 2022, even with Saneem's voter fraud and rigged votes?
And will the current President of Fiji and retired senior RFMF Officer (Jioji Konrote) publicly call on the RFMF to never conduct any future military coups, especially after Bainimarama made a grand promise in 2006 that his coup would "end all coups"?
Will the RFMF rank and file forget the five CRW soldiers who were tortured to death after the 2000 mutiny?
Will the ordinary soldiers forget that Khaiyum (and his business cronies) and Bainimarama have:
We shall have to wait and see, after next year's elections.
The Fiji Times reported that Fiji’s Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau, [who was behind every coup in Fiji], has decided that Parliament can vote “by acclamation”.
This means that when the 80-year-old calls for a vote, he only has to listen [if he can hear them at all!] to MPs saying “aye” and “no”. Then he decides, by himself, without counting how many voted “aye” or “no”, if the motion or Bill has been passed or rejected! What an imbecile!
The Standing Orders of Parliament do not allow him to do that, said Fiji’s top lawyers Graham Leung, Richard Naidu and Filimoni Vosarogo. These lawyers are far more qualified and far more intelligent than the corrupt and treasonous old Epeli Nailatikau. The lawyers claim that Parliament was not following its own rules, which was “so basic to Fiji’s democracy that no responsible lawyer could ignore it”.
One must remember, that Fiji is a dictatorship, being run by the corrupt AG Sayed-Khaiyum, a failed and childish lawyer, who dictates the outcome of ever parliamentary vote, before the votes are cast. So, it's plainly obvious that the role of the decrepit old Nailatikau, within the parliamentary dictatorship, is to implement whatever Khaiyum tells him to do, or say.
Ratu Epeli Nailatikau is a disgrace to Fiji and to the "Ratu" title! A two-faced traitor to his people and to our beloved Fiji.
