36 Years Wait is Over for Waibalavu Village

Tomasi Lomaniviti, Suva

I refer to an article in the Fiji Sun on Saturday 2/11/19 in which a rural village in the highlands of Naitasiri was finally connected to the electricity grid by the FijiFirst Government.

The official opening by the Prime Minister marks a milestone achievement for Waibalavu Village with 55 households.

The village is just one of the many villages and settlements in Fiji that has benefited over the years from the rural electrification initiatives by our Government.

For those of us who have been living in urban areas with proper water and electricity supplies, I can only imagine the smiles and relieve that our Government has brought to this village.

Being brought up in my village back in those days without electricity and the struggle to complete my education, I always support rural developments like roads, health centers, electricity, water and education services to improve the lives of our rural dwellers.

It is indeed true when the Prime Minister told the people of Waibalavu that gone are the days of watching electricity cables run past their village since the Monasavu Hydro project completed back in the early 1980s. These are some of the villages in the upper Wainimala River who have been neglected by previous governments, but are now happy to be connected to the national electricity grid.

Thank you FijiFirst and our Honourable Prime Minister for understanding the needs and looking after everyone in Fiji, especially our rural dwellers.

My prayers that our Almighty God will bless you and your family.

Divide and rule

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

Siya Kolisi in his victory speech said “We can achieve anything if we work together as one”.

I think this is exactly what the FijiFirst party stands for. Unfortunately the rest of the politicians just want to divide the people of this country to push their own agendas.

For some to divide and rule is simply a game. We are merely pawns and they keep us busy fighting each other.

Oh, how I wish these politicians really believed in the Bible. They simply fail to understand that everyone was made in the image of God. Attacking any individual means you are going against God.

Who in their right mind wants to go against God?
