Walking barefoot

Manueli Ramokosoi, Nasinu

Walking barefoot in public harms no one. It’s just another choice of attire or appearance.

Last Thursday, I entered from the other end of the MHCC complex ground floor and was on my way to buy an item from the Digicel shop. As I walked in, a few metres away from the Carpenters Finance Office, I was intercepted by a security officer. He called me over to the side and said: “Boy, e tabu na pato i loma.” (It’s restricted to be bare-foot inside). I nodded my head with a guilty reaction and stated: “Oi, ok.” I turned and walked back the same door, without reaching my intended destination.

Yet, I was surprised by what had just happened! I thought about going back to that security officer to question him, as to which part of the rules or regulations does it stipulate that anyone who walks barefoot will be denied access into any retail shop or shopping mall? Choosing to walk bare-foot can simply be a matter of personal choice under our freedom of expression rights.

As a concerned citizen, I would prefer to be the last barefoot person who was denied access.

What if a tourist, who visits our shores and prefers to walk barefoot, visits the MHCC complex or any other shop for that matter? Will that tourist be denied access too?

 

Ministerial comments

Narayan Reddy, Lautoka

Looks like the Health minister needs to learn on how to answer questions.

With all due respect all our MPs, they need to understand that they get paid from the public money. No wonder our A-G had to go and check every ministry and try to fix the problems.

Imagine what will become of all the ministries without the A-G?

 

Cancer cure?

Sukha Singh, Labasa

The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer, 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.

The sentence above was sourced from the internet. Now I am wondering if any known cancer patient in the country has tried to use the above fruit for cancer treatment?
