Spreading word of God

Rajesh Lal, Lautoka

How many church leaders are preaching the word of God in truth is the question these days.

It seems the traditions of men have taken over. Church leaders should read carefully Galatians 1: 8-9; Galatians 4: 7-10; and Proverbs 30: 5-6.

How long will church leaders fool their members?



Rabuka and India

Geeta Pillay, Suva

Did I hear right? Sitiveni Rabuka got his masters from India? How ironical!



Sports facilities

Narayan Reddy, Lautoka

Lautoka will soon have an indoor sports facility.

So it looks like more international sports will be held in the West soon.

Vinaka, to the Lautoka City Council and the Minister for Local Government.

I am sure you still have a lot to offer to the people of Lautoka.



Listen to Maharaj

Parmesh Prasad, Suva

Alvick Maharaj was on a roll in Parliament. He asked very pertinent questions about SODELPA’s creativity and the fact that all they are doing is amending FijiFirst policies.

I hope the youth who are too young to remember 1987 heard what he had to say and think about what this country has come through.



Watching Prasad

Premila Singh, Suva

Watching Parliament on TV is interesting.

Why is it that Biman Prasad also maintains silence when SODELPA members make everything about race?

Why did he not say anything about equality?

Why did he not interject?

Most importantly where did he disappear to after the break?

People are taking note of his silence. He needs to learn from the Attorney-General. Maybe Prem Singh will show more leadership and stand up to nonsense that gets uttered from the Opposition.



Thank you, Jacobs

Kirti Patel, Lautoka

The time has come for the departure of the European Union Ambassador to Fiji and the Pacific, Andrew Jacobs.

Four and half years is what you will cherish during your stay on our shores. You appreciated and loved all those moments here while carrying out your duty with passion.

So wonderfully you have described the moment you arrived at the Nadi International Airport in February, 2013, “getting on the domestic flight to Nausori, looking out of the plane and seeing this beautiful country unfolding below me and that’s one of the overriding memories.

From that moment I looked forward to getting to know the country and its people and that is something I will always treasure.”

These are simply fabulous words that Mr Jacobs used to describe Fiji. Thank you, sir for your stay here and for the work you have done. Thank you for giving our country so much credit. Thank you for your input in various ways. It is indeed good to know, not just you, but rather your entire family loved Fiji so much. Thank you for your support and guidance.

As you are departing, we wish you all the best. We are sure of your return since your love for Fiji says it all. Wishing you well in your future endeavours.



Be a true father

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva

I have read the Father’s Day message from the leader of the Catholic Church in Fiji and from the Methodist Church in Fiji Men’s Fellowship Department secretary (FS 10/9).

With all due respect to all fathers in Fiji, let us become real and true fathers in our lives everyday.

The bad reputation caused by fathers who sexually molest or rape their daughters, abuse and turn their partners into punching bags or any other disgusting behavior, brings shame to all fathers.

I applaud both Father’s Day messages mentioned above, which highlights that fathers all need the power of God to transform our lives into His image and character and be empowered by His Spirit to reflect the love of God in our daily lives.

Fiji will really be the way the world should be when all fathers become perfect fathers through this divine transformation and empowerment, which will be duly acknowledged and appreciated by their wives and partners, including their children.



Used tyre problem

Neelz Singh, Lami

Tyres that are simply thrown away are a serious environmental problem.

The sheer volume of tyres discarded each year are almost in the millions in Fiji alone, making safe disposal difficult.

Tyre recycling is a serious global concern.

Scrap tyres take up far too much space, they can spawn devastating tyre fires that burn for weeks or even months when stored together in large numbers, and they leak chemicals into the soil and groundwater.

Investment into tyre or rubber recycling plants will not only help clean the environment, but will also generate revenue and employment.

Like bottle collectors, tyre collectors from all areas will collect – old, discarded and used tyres and then bring them down to the tyre recycling or rubber plant.

It will be the first such innovative project as no such plant exists in the Pacific.

Fiji can target the Pacific market where they will export all tyres to our plant and the by-products can be sold.

Discarded tyres are an ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes and other disease-carrying species because they are hollow and can hold water for a long time.

Used tyres can be used for planting flowers or for making decorative seats or walls or for filling up landfill.

This problem needs a long term solution.

Tyre recycling is an absolute necessity.
