Casino Interest

An Asian businessman has shown interest in applying for the casino licence here.

He has 16 casinos around the world and an interest in Fiji already.

Tikina talk politicised

Some tikina meets are heavily politicised.

Mickey Bird has been reliably informed that a tikina meeting in one of the 14 provinces could not start after some members queried the presence of someone who said he was there in his capacity as advisor.

Members know that the tikina meeting is an arm of Government on rural developments and not only developments for a special group.

Campaign begins

Campaigning for the next general elections has started by a losing party in a province in the Central Division.

Now the party has put in names for the post of the turaga ni koro, chair of district meets and provincial council membership.

The party is getting the support of some chiefs in the province.

Fijians shamed

Fijians in Tonga are really ashamed of the two Fijian nationals who had been arrested by Police for an alleged attempted robbery at a “Chinese shop” in Pahu last Friday night, February 20.

They are due to appear in court on Friday.

Mickey Bird has been told that a Fijian lady who had allegedly faked recruiting for overseas jobs will also be appearing in court soon.

Information way

When the then Ministry of Information was scaled down to a department, was the role of information officers also watered down?

They seem to be carrying on as normal except for one.

The officer was asked about the Minister for Lands and Mineral Resources Mereseini Vuniwaqa visiting the North.

The response: “Why not call lands ministry and find out yourself, be a journalist”
