FijiFirst leader Rear Admiral (Retired) Voreqe Bainimarama left the country yesterday for Auckland, a first in seven years, to campaign and meet with party supporters.
Accompanied by Mary Bainimarama, the Prime Minister left for a weekend in New Zealand.
Speaking to the Fiji Sun before boarding his flight, Mr Bainimarama said he was aware of some people in Auckland wanting to stage a protest and he is not bothered.
“You know, that’s the story of our lives in Fiji right now with Government – people will be protesting but I also understand that most of those people who are protesting have run away from Fiji because of pending charges against them. That is the norm and I am not in the least worried about it. That is the last thing on my mind. I am just concerned that it’s very cold (in Auckland) and it’s raining,” Mr Bainimarama said with a laugh.
Mr Bainimarama and his team will also be hosted to a dinner today with close friends and associates.
“During the visit, there are a couple of media meetings and then I meet up with supporters tomorrow (today) afternoon and tomorrow (today) evening and on Sunday morning and afternoon, I have been invited for two church services – first the Methodist and then the Catholic.”
While fundraising is not the purpose of this trip, Mr Bainimarama said he was aware that some people wanted to contribute towards the Party.
