FSC power

Sukha Singh, Labasa

The Fiji Sugar Corporation is going to supply power from next year to the Northern grid for the entire year. They should have done this 20 years earlier.

At least they have woken up!

 

Official or unofficial?

Osea Sivo Naisau, Ba

Lately, the Opposition has come under a barrage of criticism from within and without their domain.

The Attorney-General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, referred to the visit or tour by the Leader of the Opposition, Ro Teimumu Kepa, to the Northern Division as unofficial.

As he stated: “It’s a visit by SODELPA. It’s not a visit sanctioned through a standing committee of Parliament. It is not a visit that the Parliament has voted and said the visit should take place.” (FS 26/10)

Whereas the Secretary-General to Parliament, Viniana Namosimalua, said that according to the normal function of the parliamentary rules such tour was considered official.

She questioned: “How should it be approved in Parliament? Should there be a vote to say that the Parliament should sanction it? Does that mean that every time she wants to go out she has to have a vote? I don’t think that’s right” (FS 27/10)

In going through what they had gone through in the first year as Opposition they are doing a good job in keeping the Government in check.

Hopefully members of the Opposition will learn from their ups and downs and try to regroup together to better perform the task laid upon them and to deliver the goods as expected of them from the citizens of this country.

Accountability (responsibility to someone for something) and transparency (transparent quality, clear, easily understood) have been the message of the Government since election.

The Opposition’s main job is to see that they live up to that expectation.

To see that the goods delivered to the people as promised is done.

It’s good to learn some good tips from the Rugby World Cup. Each player from 1 to 15 knows his role well and what’s expected of him.

Winning and losing depends entirely on the performance of each player. That is also applicable to what we do in life. Don’t you think?

 

Tourist entertainment

Tomasi Boginiso, Nasinu

International passengers off the cruise ship calling into our ports should be provided activities and entertainment never seen or witness in any other Port in the region.

What could it be? Never seen again are our security forces band on display when the vessels call in at the Suva or Lautoka ports.

There were also these great traditional entertainers that tourist would admire.

These days the entertainment is held outside shops so that they could be lured in to shop.

The village of Colo-i-Suva should be proud of showing something that the tourists want to see.

Our tourist operators should be well aware of the age group, country of origin, ports that they have visited, consult with ship operators on what the passengers are looking forward to do or expect to see in Fiji, only then we are able to be better hosts.

Tourists these days are more adventurous so we should provide what is adventurous rather than the same street shopping, market visit, taxi or coach tours.

Come on Suva! Let’s put together something exciting for our visiting tourists onboard cruise ships who visit our ports.

 

Improve the sport

Wise Muavono, Lautoka

Instead of embarking on income-generating projects, the Fiji Football Association should first concentrate on improving the standard of the sport in the country.

Period! Oilei Navua!
