Caesarean section death

Dennis Scharer , California

I was amazed and distressed to read the article on September 22, 2017 about the Labasa Hospital praising the quality of its maternity department and the hospital staff patting themselves on the back when seven days later a good friend died there, following a Caesarean section.

Our friend was 38-year-old Telafou Fiafia.

Apparently several moms have died having Caesarean section there and one just 2 weeks earlier.

Caesarean section is extremely safe today. Virtually no one dies of a Caesarean section today in the United States, Australia, or New Zealand.

In fact, in our community, San Diego California, it is believed there are too many Caesarean section, being performed in lieu of natural deliveries for the ease of the doctors.

The community deserves answers.  Something is terribly wrong.

Set record right

Mohammed Imraz Janif, Lautoka

When someone gets acquitted in court, it means that the accused did not break any law.

If the accused did not break any law, why was the person charged?

Does it mean that the complainant had fabricated the crime and should be charged accordingly? How often does this happen?

If this is the application of criminal law, many individuals would end up with criminal records.

The statistics would be startling. There is something amiss here.

Stolen liquor

Sukha Singh, Labasa

I refer to the report on men convicted from stealing from the late President Ratu Kamisese Mara.

The thing that bothers me is why they stole $1700 worth of liquor at one time.

Be the light

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva

Diwali lights and fireworks will come and go.

The delicious sweets and food that come with it will be digested and forgotten.

What would be the most important truth and message behind this celebration of victory of good over evil, light over darkness.

I believe that whatever our religious beliefs, the most important message for us living in this age are to be the light.

All this glamour and celebration of light would just be a meaningless show, if after this we stop being the light in sharing our love and concern for the less fortunate.

Fiji would indeed be the way the world should be if all Fijians not only celebrate the light but be the light.

Women Drivers Best

Taitusi Sokiveta, Phoenix, Arizona, USA

The best way to solve Fiji’s road accidents is to increase women drivers on our roads.

All Fiji Police drivers should be women officers and we need more women bus drivers.

All private companies and government vehicles should be driven by women.

This would decrease drunk driving and all the drivers who like to play macho or supermen and would decrease road accidents and save lives.

Next time I visit Fiji I will know it’s much safer to cross the road because a women is behind the wheel.
