The gremlins are at work again. They say their connection goes right back to their former days at the then Native Land Trust Board.

They are said to be the cause of many land disputes.

Dickie Bird said these gremlins who do not champion the cause of multiracialism are out there playing a double role.

Firstly to advise landowners and also represent the interest of certain companies as well.

 

Trouble looms

Bad blood existing between tokatoka members has been attributed to the actions of a certain chief.

Dickie Bird said the chief somehow pocketed 30 per cent of the total lease money from the iTaukei Land Trust Board while other tokatoka members scrambled for the crust.

This did not go down well with most of them as they claimed to be victimised by the chief because they supported FijiFirst party during the general election.

Now the case is to be taken up to higher authorities for those involved to be brought to task.

 

Going back

The walking out of a fundraising official during the Kadavu Solevu Diaspora in Suva last Friday indicates that now is the time where politics should not be mixed with provincial developments.

Dickie Bird said gone are the days where the provincial councils were used as a tool by politicians and certain chiefs who were there for their own and not for the people’s progress.

Dickie Bird said this was one of the reasons the Great Council of Chiefs was abolished.

 

Pump watch

Motorists should be extra careful when taking their cars to service stations for re-fuelling.

Dickie Bird said he came across two separate incidents twice last weekend where drivers had to alert the attendants to change their fuel pump.

If the drivers had failed to react they would have filled their car with the wrong fuel- which could become very costly for them.

 

Gain the game

The recent installation of a chief in Cakaudrove did not go all well. Dickie Bird said again dirty politics had reared its ugly head as greed got on to a few people.

They tried to pull a few strings to enable them to get their hands on the mats, masi and tabua that were collected during the installation process.
