Shazzer & Grubby highlights a key Bainimarama trait, which is a natural part of who he is - selling his principles yet again to get what he wants. This time its to the President of Indonesia.
Shazzer asks who remembers 3 years ago when the dictator, bainimarama, was made chairman of the Melanesian Spear Head Group.He could not get enough of that Melanesian brotherhood. But it was all for show, a lie by Bainimarama just to get support for his illegal junta.
Like, for example, bainimarama's lies about setting up the Prof Ghai Constitution Committee to create a constitution of the people - until the people rejected the dictator's demands for immunity, so he started rubbishing Prof Ghai and installed his own constitution. There are more examples and we can expected the same with the 2014 election results.
Now, says Shazzer, bainimarama ignores the biggest crisis facing Melanesia; The Genocide taking place in West Papua.
Why asks Shazzer.
Indonesia, the war criminals, are offering development aid for Fiji, support for the elections and there are reports of cash paid directly to the Fiji First party and to Bainimarama himself.
In Bainimarama’s Fiji, says Shazzer, brotherhood and principles are up for sale.
