Ravai Reminds Soldiers of Their Importance

Water Authority of Fiji chief executive officer Opetaia Ravai reminded over 100 soldiers of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces preparing to be deployed to the Middle East of their importance to the nation.

“The RFMF will provide security and defence and well-being for Fiji and all Fijians,” Mr Ravai told the peacekeepers.

Mr Ravai was speaking at the recent closing ceremony at the RFMF’s Peacekeeping School Mess Hall at the Black Rock Camp in Votualevu, Nadi, which had the soldiers who would be taking up peacekeeping missions in Iraq and Lebanon.

The Black Rock camp is used for conducting pre-deployment training for the RFMF troops before they are deployed for overseas missions.

“It is very important for all of us, myself included, whatever organisation we work for, we must understand the mission of the organisation because it determines everything that we do,” Mr Ravai said.

“The mission of an organisation should tell you why that organisation exists, where do they operate, what is their core function or business?”

Mr Ravai reminded the 138, who included officers on the mission statement of the RFMF and the important role that it played for Fijians.

Captain Jone Dugu, Officer in Command for the Peacekeeping School based in Black Rock gave a breakdown of the troops that were preparing to serve.

“For Iraq a total of seventy-four troops that will be deployed in all ranks; as for the mission in Lebanon a total of a hundred and fifty-three will be deployed,” he said.
