The Ego of the AiyAss Hole [BY SHAZZER & GRUBBY]
We have all heard and read about Egotistical Divas in Hollywood. The star who will insist on only having yellow M&Ms, the actress who will fly in a hair dresser at a cost of $20,000 or the actor who will walk off the set because he can’t get his favorite Champagne.
We all thought Fiji was a simpler place but over the years we have seen how absolute power has turned normal people into power mad egotistical maniacs.
May I present Aiyaz?
Whoops sorry we cannot call him that anymore. He is AG or Minister to even his closest friends. If you happened to know Aiyaz pre-2006 he was just an average lawyer working at Colonial and he was known simply as Aiyaz. But now his old friends are punished if they call him Aiyaz, they are given the cold shoulder unless they call him AG. Even his relatives have to call him AG.
Woe betides you if you forget to refer to him as Acting Prime Minister when he was in that capacity. Not so long ago an opening in Nadi was delayed for 3 hours as the commemorative plaque was hurriedly changed to include the words Acting PM. He refused to go ahead unless his temporary position was acknowledged.
It would be ok if that was all his ego was about but it does not end there. He thinks he knows better than anyone else. His ego tells him that he can improve anything by writing one of his decrees. He knows he is better and that is why he never consults with stakeholders before forcing a decree on the long suffering people of Fiji.
Look at the Constitution. Yash Ghai had over 7,000 submissions and most were available online for all to see. The Ghai constitution was transparent and reflected the views of the people of Fiji. AiyAss Hole’s constitution is the very opposite. Not one submission has been made public. Who asked for a single constituency for the whole of Fiji? NO ONE!
Dictatorships breed Egos. Whether it’s Bainimarama selling Fiji’s assets to give him the money to bribe the voters or his daughter getting someone sacked because he asked her to turn the music down. The Egos grow unhindered because there is no Parliament, no Media and no Court to tell them they are wrong
The whole Bainimarama TEAM knows what’s best for them but worse they think they know what’s best for US.
