The chiefs of Ba were yesterday reminded to act on resolutions discussed in the Ba Provincial Council which called for the clamping down of sedition activities.

Council chairman Ratu Tevita Momoedonu urged the chiefs during the end of the meeting to act on what they discussed in the last two days at Natalacake Village.

The council and the chiefs had distanced themselves from the sedition activities in the Nadroga/Navosa and Ra provinces.

Ratu Tevita said the only government they supported was the FijiFirst Government.

“We are relying on what we have discussed today to put to action the resolution we have passed,” he said.

“The chiefs, their respective ‘mata ni vanua’ and their village headmen should guide the villagers with the right laws.

“Anyone who is insane and has no knowledge will be part of this sedition movement. We won’t tolerate any such action and Police are monitoring and we will be doing our vanua monitoring as well.

“People, especially the villagers should familiarise themselves with the laws and try to sort out ways to act against this sedition movement.

“No one is expected to come down that low in trying to set up a movement like this to go against the Government,” he said.

Meanwhile, Ratu Tevita was astounded by the number of iTaukei in prisons. He referred to the number of statistics provided by the Fiji Corrections Service which reveals 137 inmates are from Ba Province.

The Permanent Secretary for iTaukei Affairs, Savenaca Kaunisela, in his closing remarks, called on chiefs to unite.

“It is important that we have good governance for our people. We should embrace those who are among us and develop a relationship for the betterment of our future generation,” Mr Kaunisela said.
