No road in Tunuloa

Joji Toronibau,  Tunuloa

Our earthlings’ quest to at least tread on a proper government road is still haunting us now. For too long we have been silent and this is perhaps the only liberal choice to air our gripes and complaints for a fair and just journey.

Our school children are the most vulnerable to elements, our senior citizens and the transportation of root/cash crops to and from the point of pickups etc., that can contribute to the economy.

There is only a stretch left (about 6.5kms) to link Wailevu Primary School and Napuka Secondary School where our school children can get easy access to these road infrastructure and do away with man-horse tracks, wading across the rivers and the sea to school and back.

We do not have TV reception except if you buy a Sky Pacific package, Vodafone/Inkk and Digicel which have intermittent receptions.

We the most unfortunate Tikina in this part of the Fiji and we wish to also enjoy the same opportunities as enjoyed by most Fijians as often heard by those in Parliament and the often celebrated events.

Please also note, that Police presence on wheels is most paramount to weed out illegal activities.


Free tertiary tuition

Viliame Gavoka,  Nadroga

On June 2, 2017, Mr Nemani Delaibatiki had made one of his analysis on the 2018 poll in which he stated that I ‘once suggested that tertiary tuitions should be made free’.

I need to correct that as it is not only a suggestion, but a major part of SODELPA’s manifesto heading into 2018.


Cinema in Nasinu

Tomasi Boginiso,  Nasinu

What a relief for the people of Nasinu, which I believe is the most populated area in Fiji. They have access to a lot of services. They used to have a cinema in Nakasi a long time ago but it was not so successful but I believe with the new venture and the shopping facilities around, it’s just an ideal place to be.

The shopping centre shows the increase businesses are getting and more people employed from the area. People in Nasinu are getting business-oriented.

With the roads from Koronivia to Nakasi getting to its mid stages of completion, the Nasinu area is becoming a hub for economic activity.


They must

Samuela Kailawadoko,  Nadi

The Flying Fijians can make amends for their loss to the Wallabies in the last World Cup. But they must now show their ability to overcome the greatest odds by sheer determination and inspired performance on the day.

They must play with tremendous fire. They must not fail in the set scrum against a good shove. They must out-jump the opposition in the line-outs or make up for it elsewhere.

On account of the availability of our Fijian players, the selectors have tended to put their strongest combination out in the Melbourne test.

The side has quality coaches and I am just hoping the team would execute their game plan well.

We must have a brilliant pack of forwards that will lay down the foundation for their invincible five test matches this season.

Our defence must be as safe and steady as a rock.

I hope there will be little to commend the match in Melbourne. This may be a golden era.

I understand we are building a side. But the significance of the game lies in the result.

We cannot afford to have three valuable players in the back-line and four good forwards; this is not good enough to take on the Wallabies.

The entire 15s side must fight and win every inch of the field. Otherwise we will find another crushing by the Wallabies. The Fijian backs must show wonderful understanding and their passing must be clean and pretty to watch. There has to be some touch of genius about everything our backs do, whether it will be cutting out openings in midfield or getting back to cover defence. Despite some setbacks let’s hope our Flying Fijians will produce one of their finest performances to beat the Wallabies.


Malaka ice plant

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa,  Suva

A concerned fisher from Vanuabalavu wants to know what is happening with the Malaka Ice Plant.

He went there on Wednesday morning to buy ice but there was no one there, even though the ice machine was operating without anyone manning it. He had to leave empty-handed when low tide approached.

This fisher also wants to know from the Fisheries Ministry on how long would it take to get his fishing license renewed?

He had applied before the end of last year and it is now five months into 2017. There is still no response, despite coming to Suva a number of times.
