Eyebrows were raised when First Lady Adi Koila Nailatikau did not attend the ceremonial opening of Parliament with her husband, President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau.

The event also had a family connection for Adi Koila. Her aunt Ro Teimumu Kepa is the Opposition and SODELPA leader.

What could have kept Adi Koila away? Was she unwell, some wondered? No comment could be obtained from Government House before this edition went to press.

Disputed doctrine

There is a split in one of the country’s major Pentecostal churches. The breakaway churches have now become independent. The split was caused when church ministers tried to re-introduce two doctrines after these were earlier voted out by senior church ministers.

Dickie Bird said one of the doctrines is causing a lot of debate among members. It is that when a pastor is divorced, he is allowed to marry someone else despite the fact that his former marriage mate is still alive.

Spot on

A fiery preacher remarked on radio the other day: ‘We have sought God’s help in raising up a new government to rule us. The general election is over and God has raised this government to lead us – so why criticise and complain?’
