Written By : Tai Smith Nasinu . I congratulate the people of Cakaudrove and Rewa for their stand on the GCC and NCBBF.
I have never been more proud to be a kai Cakaudrove and a vasu-i-taukei of Rewa.
Our chiefs are born to their position and not trumped up by some egotistical fanatics. There are many who earn the title of Ratu, Ro, Adi and Bulou because of their parentage and birthright.
Then there are those elected from this group to become supreme chiefs and leaders of their provinces. For others to try and assume their elected leaders positions is tantamount to treason in the chiefly system. Ratu Naiqama and Ro Teimumu are indeed worthy of their positions and the support from their people is a clear indication of their true value as our chiefs.
Chiefs are part of our culture and heritage and set us apart from everyone else on this planet.
I have never understood how Ratu Mara as paramount chief of Lau and the Commander -in-Chief of the Fiji military was removed by his army commander.
George Speight might be in prison for treason but was it not treason by the army commander to remove the commander-in-chief? Just as Rabuka is the father of coups, the army commander has now set a precedent for all people to feel free to be disloyal to their chiefs which could result in the loss of some of our very proud cultures and traditions.
