Interesting journey

Floyd Robinson,Nasinu

 

With much publicity on preparations and anticipation of results for the 2015 Coca-Cola Games, it is likely that one may overlook the interesting journeys leading up to the games.

For example, parents, teachers, students, families and some community members have sacrificed much time, effort and money   just to ensure that athletes make it to the games.

Some parents and communities have had to stretch their resources and efforts in order to successfully fund raise to meet financial expenses so that their young ones made the journey to Suva.

Let’s not forget the efforts and sacrifices of those working behind the scene to make the games a success. Let’s appreciate the efforts of all athletes regardless of the outcome of results of each event.

It’s the effort that makes journey to the Coca-Cola games special.

 

Street lights

Roneel Chand,Suva

 

Few weeks back I wrote to this paper on how some street lights in Caubati have not been operational for the past 5 months or so.

There has been no action despite explaining to them the risks faced.

 

Unique identity

Lawrence Narayan,Suva

 

Osea S Naisau (FS 23/4) is wondering why the Jews still attain their unique identity but his real motive is in defending his own ethnicity. It surprises me because I always thought Osea was a true follower of Christ and well versed with the Bible but he is now proving me wrong.

Does he know Jesus gave a central message in the Bible of total surrender to those who wish to follow Him? It is a message of obeying God and walking by faith.

It is a message of saying to God, “Lord, I am bought for a price. I am Your purchased possession. You redeemed me. I am Yours. Use me. Do with me as You want. I am totally and completely Yours. All I am, and all I have belongs to You.

Becoming a true, repentant, born-again Christian can be costly. It can cost a person everything he has. Christians have lost their houses, employment, children, families, husbands, wives, arms, legs, eyes, and even their lives for following Jesus.

No possession, nothing of this world is to have a hold on us whether it is land or personal identity. Jesus expects total sacrifice from us and a true, born-again Christian must be willing to give up everything.

Perhaps, Osea needs to count the costs of his life and see whether it is worth following Christ as his name “Naisau” suggests or he can choose to maintain his ethnicity and personal identity apart from Christ thus rejecting Him Outright. God does not force anyone, It is a personal choice.

 

FICAC role

Poseci Bune,Lautoka

 

I am somewhat disturbed by your report in the Fiji Sun, page 14, on the charge against former FNU Vice Chancellor, Dr Ganesh Chand which has prompted me to ask the question ,what is the role of FICAC ?

I have asked this question because as far as I am aware,Dr Chand was a serving public servant when apparently he was forced to resign.

In normal public service practice, a serving officer would normally be asked to go on leave(with or without pay) while an internal audit or investigation authorized by the Education Permanent Secretary is carried out into allegations.

If as a result of the investigations ,the allegations are not substantiated,the officer is reinstated immediately.However,if the allegations are proven, then the Permanent Secretary can either recommend that the officer reimburses the full amount alleged to have been paid out without proper authority and/ or require the officer to resign( if on contract) or accept a demotion/ transfer( if permanent).

That is why I am somewhat bemused and overawed by FICAC ‘s involvement in this case.
