Bukuya Village headman Fereti Malasebe has confirmed that members of his village would support FijiFirst because of the developments done in their area.

The 50-year-old farmer, who was present at the FijiFirst campaign, said their prayers were answered through the initiative of the Bainimarama Government.

“Previous governments would not hear our cries but when Mr Bainimaram came into power we have seen many changes in our village,” Mr Malasebe said.

“We have just got confirmation that the people of Magodro will also be supporting FijiFirst because of the developments made by the Government,” he said.

Bukuya Village, which is located in the highlands of Nadi, is actually 48.5 kilometres away from Nadi Town, and around 30km away from Ba Town.

Mr Makasebe said that they could also see changes in the support of other political parties.

“We would have PDP, SODELPA and other parties come and campaign and the hall would not event be full.

“But during FijiFirst’s campaign the hall is full and it’s even crowded outside,” he said.

He said he was satisfied with the campaign conducted by Mr Bainimarama.

“Parties have come in and told us negative things about FijiFirst which I now know is a total lie. They hardly focus on Fiji’s current issue alone,” the headman said.

FijiFirst party leader Voreqe Bainimarama explained to the people of Bukuya on the 2013 Constitution.

“There are a lot of political parties who have tried to manipulate people about the Constitution; trying to bring back the 1997 Constitution,” Mr Bainimarama said.

“They begin to make up lies about people losing their land; Christians not being able to say God’s name in public or at their homes, and about unequal sharing of scholarships.”

He then confirmed to the people that their land was secure; nobody can stop them from mentioning God’s name and scholarships were being equally shared.

“Unlike previous governments for example SDL who have gave up land to developers at Momi and the SVT on Denarau Island, my Government has not given up any land, they are all safe,” Mr Bainimarama said.

He said all had been made possible through the 2013 Constitution.

The campaign was attended by more than 100 supporters at the village hall, yesterday.
