Analysis: Conspiracy Theories Fly Thick And Thin

Analysis: Conspiracy Theories  Fly Thick And Thin

All the conspiracy theories on social media leading up to the re-election of President Major General (Retd) Jioji Konrote shows how gullible some Fijians are.

The theories flying thick and fast were so outrageous that it was laughable. But, it is not a laughing matter.

We had SODELPA candidates openly speculating that Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will become President.

They openly speculated that Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum will take over as Prime Minister.

Is this a laughing matter? Sadly, no.

It is a concerted effort to spread false news, propaganda, and an attempt to undermine the main political party

SODELPA will be up against in the upcoming general elections.

Some conspiracy theories which were created by Camp SODELPA: Prime Minister Bainimarama to become the President, President Konrote was sacked and one person went as far as putting up the idea that the military should step in and take over Government.

This is what is being spread. These people know they will not be entertained in mainstream media so they turn to Facebook to throw a spanner in the works.

It is really unbecoming of people who will be going out vying for peoples votes. It is very unpatriotic of some people.

The only good thing that has come out of all of this is that this has become another example of why people should not believe everything they read on social media, especially if it is coming from Camp SODELPA.
