Written By : Jo Gonewai Suva. Occasionally, we have been reminded by the interim regime that we have to abide by the law.
I am confused with this directive as we continue to hear, see and experience the actions, promulgations, reviews, undertakings, comments , press releases that are in contrary to the majority of the statues and principles in our Constitutions.
To make it worse, the controversial senior Police Officer seems to take over the role of headmaster in interpreting what is lawful and not and others blessed that the perpetrators are God Sent .
Do we see ourselves similar to the Mugabe Regime where he stated that only God can depose him?
Are the laws imposed only on the weak, defenceless, and powerless to protect the interest of the elite and the opportunists?
We have men of cloak, failed politicians, bankrupt businessmen, inexperienced personnel who are not supposed to be on the payroll who are now standing at the bank ATM receiving hefty salaries and allowances for their participation and support of the controversial policies which are against our Constitutional.
We all know that the majority of the global revolution and good deed are based on monetary benefits and fame. The recent revelations of the NCBBF staff emails and the appointment of high ranking RFMF personnel and their public supporters to various senior civil servants and statutory body positions indicates that Fiji is no exception.
Maybe the love of money has taken root in our society with the guise of doing good.
Deceptions and lies have taken control in our daily lives and we don’t have to look far to see the cause.
We must seek the Lord to enlighten the thoughts of our leaders or we might see ourselves ruled under jungle law in future.
