All Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) recruitment will now be deferred to next year.

This was confirmed and clarified by RFMF spokesperson, Colonel Litea Seruiratu, at Nasinu yesterday.

“The RFMF has been assisting in the recovery and rehabilitation work in the country with the use of its resources and we have also used part of our budget to assist in the work post Tropical Cyclone Winston,” Colonel Seruiratu said.

“With this in mind we will have to defer all recruitment to next year; this will be the last for this year.”

RFMF soldiers and engineers have been at the forefront of the Winston rehabilitation programme since the monster storm hit the country on February 20.

They were joined by men and women from the Australian Defence Force and New Zealand Defence Force, who are helping rebuild communities, villages and homes ravaged by Winston.

The Fiji Military were also active in the distribution of relief supplies to the thousands of Fijians who were affected.

They will continue to help as the Government focuses on rebuilding the nation.

Of the 232 new recruits that had their passing-out parade yesterday, Colonel Seruiratu said 71 would undergo further training as cadets to be potential members of the RFMF Officers Corps, while the others would be posted to the Territorial Force (TF).
