Rabuka’s call

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

I certainly agree wholeheartedly with my fellow writer Timoci Waqa’s letter from Nadi (FS/22/2/17) titled “Politicising Winston”.

The former prime minister Sitiveni Rabuka is irrational, self-centred with his do not care attitude irrelevant to the multitude of Fijian adults and school children alike from around our nation that were badly affected and traumatised from the wrath of Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston.

His call and criticism of our Government’s decision to host and commemorate the first anniversary post TC Winston speaks volume of his character and true colours.

He is also a Methodist lay preacher and a Qase-ni-Lotu (church elder), it is un-Christian, disrespectful and inconsiderate indeed, it is also not the trait of a leader we Fijians desire going into the 2018 election.

He is reminded that the rehabilitation, reconstruction and rebuilding phases post Winston is an ongoing process, a small budgetary allocation from the President Major General (Ret’d) Jioji Konrote and from our caring government is an honest and kind gesture which will not hamper any progress of our Government’s plans for those many suffering dear fellow countrymen of ours.

Coming from a former PM is irresponsible.

Watch out Fijian voters, he turned a worthy and meaningful humanitarian gathering into a political football for his very own political survival.

If that is his motive then it is dirty childish politics, the scores of multitudes who turned up at Albert Park on the day did so because they care about their loved ones, they did so because they are still hurting and most importantly to share their sorrows and experience with other Fijians.

They did not go to Albert Park because they voted for SODELPA, Fiji Labour Party, National Federation Party or the FijiFirst Party for that matter, please Mr Rabuka have a heart for your fellow suffering countrymen, women and children, they are still trying to get over it all.

The SOPDELPA leader is desperate and is losing the plot.

 

 

 

7s fever

Samuela Kailawadoko, Nadi

With Masivesi Dakuwaqa and Apisai Domolailai accounting for the rest of the Fiji sevens team; they should inspire the forwards and should make some brilliant front-row performances to play the Fijian -style of open running rugby. They should have a workmanlike pack to spear-head but, with a polished back division.

In pleasant contrast, Las Vegas and Vancouver should bring a glorious game of rugby and may well be regarded as a remarkable game of 2017 – we should certainly witness a greater transformation in fortunes. Good luck,boys.

 

Nakelo route buses

Tomasi Boginiso, Nasinu

Last year the Land Transport Authority officials visited the village of Naimalavau, Tailevu and listened to their pleas about the bus service in the area.

There were less buses in the morning and more people, school children had to walk in certain cases because the buses are full.

The early morning buses from Kiuva is not turning into the village to collect passengers and the villagers of Vaturua and Naimalavau have to walk a distance to get to the bus if they are working in Suva.

These issues were solved on the evening the villages met with the LTA officials and with phone calls with bus operators everything was solved and the villagers were happy.

When school started this year I was surprised that everything was back to the same and the LTA officials must have forgotten about the villagers of Vaturua and Naimalavau.

Please can someone look into these issues very quickly because they are getting very frustrated with the bus service.

I envy the commitment and sacrifice of Fiji Football Association for their almost achievable aim of reaching the back of the pack. Sa malo (thank you).
