In the 1995 Hong Kong Tournament, I was the only one amongst the more than a dozen villagers watching the Final showdown between Fiji and NZ that favoured the Kiwis to come out victor simply because I had the inkling that their new kid on the block; Jonah Lomu will be their trump card like he was the year before.

Jonah Lomu didn’t disappoint because he always delivered the goods whether playing in 7s or 15s.

The guy had all the ingredients or the total package of a rugby player: size, strength and speed.

And on top of that he also possessed the personality that befits him as one of the all-time greats of the game.

Recently chosen by Britain’s Guardian as Rugby World Cups greatest player, Jonah Lomu had stamped his mark in the sport as one of its major drawcard.

Though he had succumbed to the kidney disease at the age of 40, his legacy will remain as one of sports popular icons.

 

Monkeys in House

Timoci Gaunavinaka,

When Government wants to move things forward in Parliament, the Opposition will do their uttermost to disrupt it even when they fully know that it is for the good of all. They treat it as a joke.

They would growl, bark, meow, hizz and even swear. Now they resemble a bunch of monkeys.

I never voted for a bunch of monkeys to represent me in Parliament, be they iTaukei monkeys, Indo-Fijians monkeys or Chinese monkeys.

Fiji is blessed that we did not vote monkeys into Government or we would have become a banana republic.

 

Religious leaders

Our Fijian Christian religious churches seem to be thriving in the harvest of rogue pastors or reverends, the latest being a self-proclaimed pastor who preaches out of a non-registered church.

The religious laws of our Republic should be reviewed and tightly regulated.

Many Christian churches employ the prosperity Gospel tactic that blends spiritual and material aspirations for it’s self-revered misleading pastors.

It is reported that a senior pastor reverend Hong Hee from the City Harvest Church in Singapore with its six other church officials were convicted last month for diverting US$51 million [FD$77m] to advance the wordly pop music career  of his pastor wife Ho Yuew Sun, look up the internet.

It is a total criminal breach of trust by its church board to its members whom they have always wholeheartedly given their tithings for the manifestation of the Gospel in his glory but certainly not for their pastor’s personal consumption.

Our Fijian Government is missing out a lot on its revenue from the many unaccounted non-taxable millions these churches collect.

It is happening right here in our country and church members are talking, how do you justify a talatala in posession of  two 4×4 Utes and some luxury living in their own double story houses with consistent yearly overseas travels paid for by the church for what? Do you call that giving one’s tithing to God or to a man?

 

Speeding kills

Wise Muavono,
Lautoka

Speeding kills. Period.

The difference of a few kilometres per hour can mean the difference between life and death. There is an old saying “It’s all fun and games, until someone gets hurt”.

I could go on and on with perfectly good reasons why speeding is as risky as playing Russian roulette with a pistol. I reckon the Balawa Cemetery are full of those who laughed off warnings about speeding.
