Written By : Tai Smith Nasinu . This military junta has proven one thing so far – that anything to do with the indigenous people must be supressed or interfered with.
First it was the GCC. Then it was the provincial council properties. Now it is one the most successful of all businesses here in Fiji – Fijian Holdings Limited.
Peni Mau may be under FICAC investigation but he brought Post Fiji millions in profit. Sitiveni Weleilakeba is another success story. Semesa Karavaki and so many other indigenous citizens who could steer this country forward are replaced just because they are successful.
What is wrong with us? No sooner someone or something is successful we seek to destroy it. On one hand I am glad that it is the calm indigenous nature we are dealing with but on the other, I wonder just how much more we can expect them to take. If ever someone divided this country based on race, it is this military junta. All those indigenous sons and daughters assisting in bringing down our cultural heritage and businesses are aptly rewarded with positions of power and most are calling themselves christians.
But the money and positions of power will not last forever and they will leave behind a legacy of greed.
Can the junta now interfere in all other business ventures listed on the stock exchange to show it has no bias?
Investment in companies will soon be a thing of the past as we will put unqualified people in charge of running their business interests.
