School holidays

Kirti Patel,  Lautoka

Now that the school academic year has come to the end, the safety of children is becoming a paramount issue.

As usual once again the parents have to be very vigilant about the whereabouts of their children. This is the time when children will be full of excitement and in the playing and roaming mood. Everyone is aware of the mishaps taking place in the holidays and no one wants a continuing trend in such a manner.

The children, hopefully when leaving home, should inform their parents of their movements.

The festive season is just round the corner and there will be an increase in traffic flow, not forgetting the drunkards at many places. The town will be busy and people should keep a close eye on their belongings as well.

To the students who are eagerly waiting for their exam results, I wish you all the best. I hope everyone enjoys their holidays to the maximum, but safely.


Recharge credit

Samuela Rareba,  Suva

I don’t know if people agree with me or not, but it is surprisingly funny that every time we recharge our phone, we find that there is a purchased credit and also free money credited to our sim account and yet the unit uses per minutes is totally different from another.

For the purchase credit, the charges use per unit is relatively reasonable, but for free money credit, I just don’t know how they are deducting this per unit because the fund just quickly gets used up as if it doesn’t matter.

Also, this free money has a limit and you should use it all before the said date to avoid the disappointment.

All I’m saying is that for the relevant mobile company, please be transparent in your approach especially for the weekly promotion. If you don’t want to give the double up, triple up or fourple up promotion, please just say so, rather than saying to give triple time when its actually time and a half.


M-paisa cards

Narayan Reddy,  Lautoka

A  Buabua, Lautoka, resident has been borrowing to read newspapers from me everyday for sometime.

Yesterday, I asked him what he was looking for in the newspaper. He replied that he still hasn’t received his M-paisa card for cyclone assistance. He has been a regular face at the Lautoka welfare office every Monday. He has been advised that a team from Suva was dealing with the case and he should continue reading the newspaper for details.

I wonder why the Lautoka welfare office has to wait for Suva welfare office for the card’s supply. Can the minister concerned look into this!



North tour

Samuela Kailawadoko, Nadi

The Northern rugby tour, which ends after the Japan game is a must win; not only to a great standard of skill, but showing to us the glories spirit of chivalry in which real rugby can be played.

We understand the last two games was not a glorious spectacle. The play was disappointing and the score did not show the trend of it.

The many informalities were a reflection on Fiji Rugby.

Nikola Matawalu should start at scrum-half; Josh Matavesi and Albert Vulivuli should be cutting out openings in mid-field or punting across field or getting quickly to cover defence.

Japan, as ever, will continue to show their ability to upset the greatest odds by sheer determination and inspired performance.

A persistent feature of our Fijian rugby play would be a relentless and ruthless tackling against the Japanese.

Give us some smile, boys!
