Reddy Warns On Demonic Game

Mahendra Reddy has issued a stern warning against students playing the demonic game, Charlie Charlie.

The Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts  yesterday said disciplinary action would be taken against them when caught.

He made the comments in Sigatoka where he closed a workshop for heads of departments  in Nadroga/Navosa schools.

“We have heard that the game is linked to some kind of witchcraft and that is a totally unacceptable practice in the school compound,” Mr Reddy said.

“We will basically ensure that it is stopped and stamped out but we have to find out where it is actually happening.”

He said   counselling for those offending students would be stepped up and that various community and faith-based organisations were also assisting in offering counselling services.

He said investigations were underway to pinpoint the exact

schools that had students playing the game.

“We will send out a circular email to the head teachers and principals to tell us which schools it’s happening in, and if the game is being played during school hours,” he said.

Charlie Charlie is the latest game played by children internationally and locally and is said to be demonic. The Racket Report reports online  that the game is dangerous, leads children to be possessed and can even lead to suicide.

Mr Reddy said action would also be taken against students caught smoking and sniffing glue.

“We will be cracking down on these cases. We are stepping up because those things are unacceptable in the school premises and we have got different teams in different districts looking into this because these issues need to be curbed.”

This was after a picture published in the Fiji Sun about students of Dudley high school smoking and another photo of students sniffing glue went viral on social media.

“We are asking parents to monitor your children because we cannot just leave it to the teachers to handle, they shouldn’t be getting distracted with activities such as this,” he said.
