Letters To The Editor, October 10, 2015

Chief/politician/MP
Mosese Bulitavu, Labasa
I refer to Amenatave Yaconisau’s letter Chiefs’ leadership – Friday, October 9, 2015.

Firstly, I was not interviewed by Domo ni  Vanua Radio Fiji – Tuesday 5/10/15, I was interviewed by Edwin Nand on 4 the Record programme on Sunday 4/10/15.

In the interview I mentioned that a chief must demarcate his or her traditional role from being a politician and from being a parliamentarian.

The bottom line is that chiefs need to send their children for education and learn leadership which is relevant to modern parliamentary democracy.

The mentoring of future chiefs ‘sausauvou’ must be based on the young Jewish rabbi’s lesson ‘ whoever desires to be first shall be slave of all’. Servant leadership – serving the people and not to exercise authority over them.

I believe that every human being was born to lead by virtue of Genesis 1:26 and will naturally resit if they are dominated.

Once a chief enters Parliament he/she is under an oath to uphold the trust of those that voted him/her.

In Parliament it is the duty of every member to serve the people and not to be served by the people.

The context of what was said can only be understood watching the full FBC TV – 4 the Record show and not on Radio Fiji – Domo ni Vanua.

 

News integrity

Abendra Ram Tahal,  USA

I would like to commend and thank The Fiji Sun,  it’s Publisher, Editor and the journalists for their selfless effort in bringing the fair and balance news  first across the dateline to all the people of Fiji and more so to all the former Fijians residing overseas.

The Fiji Sun is the only truly reliable and trustworthy newspaper which the people get their money’s value.

The Fiji Sun has the integrity and the highest standard of news including the language, materials with substance which the other newspapers lack vastly.

The Fiji Sun is the most impartial and accurate in fair reporting like the current affairs, political, social issues, reforms etc. which most of the readers at home and abroad look for.

The Fiji Sun has been reporting on very critical issues on daily basis like issues critical with the Government, the rift and degraded biased policies in political parties like SODELPA, demise of FLP etc while some of the other newspapers seem to be turned into Sports newspapers.

The Fiji Sun’s success is the practice of impartiality reporting where they even are very critical of the Government when they should be.

The editorial and letters column of the Fiji Sun are excellent and above the par level yet the other newspapers in the country are always swamped with same rugby subjects all week long.

The Fiji Sun reporters seem to do lot of reach before they bring the news to the readers like most of the big newspapers here, New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journals, L. A. Times to mention a few  for they great success in a small nation like Fiji.

The Fiji Sun maintains vigorous standards of honesty and fair play in the handling of stories and treatment of news sources and the public.

The Fiji Sun Editor’s and reporters are very articulate, verifying all the major details and of course getting the stories from “horse’s mouth“.

I would suggest the other newspapers learn from The Fiji Sun’s great success in fair journalism, in qualities of integrity, accuracy, responsibility and last but not the least, the leadership.

The most credit should go to the Government for the freedom of fair reporting and its open door policy to one and all.God Bless Fiji.

 

Wooden spoon

Amenatave Yaconisau,  Suva

The US rugby team will face a stiffening resistance from the Japanese Cherry Blossoms’ team and they will have to pull up to avoid the wooden spoon.

The Japanese are expected to dig in hard  like they did inthe South African game with their heavy artilleries firing  at the American forward pack.

The Japanese will try every trick in the book to infiltrate the  US defence.

They will impede delivery of balls from scrums, ruck and mauls to the swift American backline.

They have nests of brave Japanese all over the field and the Americans will  have a full day at the office.
