Butter price

Wise Muavono, Balawa, Lautoka

The price of butter is exploding worldwide and NFP is blaming FijiFirst Party for the increase locally. Kemudou!

Nature reacts

Hassan Ali, Lautoka

Are we aware that nature reacts to individual actions both positive and negative?

Therefore, it is always safe to avoid negative actions for our own personal welfare, to save us from nature’s equal reaction. We need to think right, act right, do right and feel right. By right I mean positive.

If you think it is difficult to think posi­tive, then just resort to the technologies of consciousness. You probably know what I mean.

 

Discipline

Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi

It seems there is a total lack of dis­cipline resulting in a lack of unity if SODELPA continues with the internal bickering it’s known for.

The stirrings started with the candi­dacy of Lynda Tabuya and continued with the Ro Dona’s saga.

It seriously limits the power of the Op­position it seems when such a tradition­al representative is disregarded.

A decline of unity is apparent.

 

Electricity deposit

Narayan Reddy, Lautoka

Can the Fiji Electricity Authority make known the amount of money it is holding as a security deposit and the interest earned from it?

I am being told that FEA is required by law to make it public because it’s consumers’ money held in trust.

Anything that is held in trust gener­ates interest and who benefits from that interest?

Can the Consumer Council of Fiji please look into this?

The findings will be interesting be­cause aside from FEA, most contractual security deposits are held in trust.

Consumer Council can you please up­date us regarding the interest generated from security deposits?

 

Politics or vanua

Samu Silatolu, Nakasi

The 2018 General Election is looming on the horizon. Few candidates who will be contesting are “Heads of Vanua”.

The governing of a nation is totally different from vanua administration.

A “politician” is a job status and the “vanua head” is an inheritance.One changes every four years whereas the other dies with it.

This is a choice that has to be carefully and thoroughly understood.

The two would not, cannot and will not integrate due to their different nature.

One cannot serve two masters. Either you will love one and hate the other or will be loyal to one and despise the other.

 

Riddhi Damodar

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

Lady Riddhi, there are many others who would love for you to use their name! You sure look like a very strong independent woman.

Your intentions to get into politics and serve the people says a lot about the person you are.

I wish you the very best in your politi­cal career.

 

Tar sealed road

Joji O. Toronibau, Tunuloa, Cakaudrove

A month back, I witnessed a charis­matic senior executive from the Fiji Roads Authority commenting on the Hibiscus Highway tar sealed stretch.

He stated that the reason the tar sealed road ends at Kasavu and not stretched further on to Natuvu and as far as the Napuka end, was because the volume of vehicles was low.

Perhaps true in their one-day evalua­tion and scoping studies, but talk about the frequency of utilisation 24/7 is another chronicle.

Visiting health three centres of Tukavesi, Natewa and Bagasau is the norm of the day, while family gather­ings, trading and distribution of goods and services from towns and cities is the call of the day.

There are three boats steaming across Taveuni everyday inclusive of its land transport vehicles and more buses on direct route to and from Labasa and so on. There are Vishnu buses running daily.

We want the same treatment as en­joyed by every Fijian.

I remember quite well that an old learned gentleman once said: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” ― George Orwell, Animal Farm.
