Suva City image

Shariff Shah,  Suva

I have been in Suva since last Wednesday and everything looks so nice, except for only five things that is giving the city a bad image.

First, the roads in the city. It is riddled with patch works. I think the gravel roads are much better, but again, Suva is the capital city so we can’t have that.

Second, the view out to the Suva harbour. I can see so many rusty looking fishing vessels and the other that sank just metres from the seawall where many people hang out with their loved ones. I am wondering what is resting on the sea bed.

Third, the famous clock on Government building is at it again. It’s three hours ahead.

Fourth, the  “green looking and dirty” Nabukalou creek. The sight made me scratch my head.

And fifth, the view from any high rise building is breath-taking, but when you look at the rear end of all these buildings it’s covered with filth and rubbish. No wonder when you walk along Cumming St your nose says please, don’t breathe.

To the good chief executive of the Suva City Council, I salute you for doing wonders in the city for past 15 plus years.

Please include the above five things in your new year’s resolution. It will be good.

And if any one is opposing me on any or all of above, please, do come and visit my paradise – Savusavu.

It’s heaven on earth. And we the Savusavu people are committed to keep it that way.

Time for a change

Floyd Robinson, Nasinu

The New Year will bring about changes without a doubt.

These will range from anticipated, unanticipated, joy, happiness, sadness and strangeness. Whatever it brings or however it’s interpreted, all in all, it’s a time to embrace change.

If one cannot change the circumstances around oneself, then best to change the way one thinks. A blessed new year to all.

I look forward to reading more new letters to the editor, let alone the new writers in 2018.

Message of hope

Amenatave Yaconisau,  Delainavesi

Messages by the Opposition parties in one of the media outlets is full of misery. I have no political patronage but the government must be given the opportunity to explain and defend its policies otherwise public opinion may be affected.

Right choices

Manoah Kaleca,  Nakasi

Happy New Year, Fiji.  The decisions we make today will determine the future we create tomorrow. Everything in life starts with a decision so choose well and choose rightly. Bon voyage!

New Year resolution

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa,  Nadi

In this quiet location of Nawaka Village back-road in Nadi, I welcomed the New Year 2018 as the sun set on Sunday 31/12/17, with a new year’s resolution to be in God’s presence more through prayer, fasting and reading the Bible and being a blessing to others.

In the political front, soon we will be facing a public onslaught of mudslinging from politicians and political parties all wanting our one vote to form our next government.

In the spiritual realm, Christians are being urged to pray for Fiji and the coming General Election and we are seeing the manifestation and casting out of demonic powers from people and villages around Fiji.

The ATS saga has revealed that 150 people were needed to fill in temporary vacancies, yet over 1100 people turned up for the jobs, indicating that we have a high unemployment rate.

Climate change is real and we do not know what 2018 will bring, maybe another Winston or this time around a tsunami?

While we all will be wishing each other a “Happy or Prosperous New Year 2018” we will still have to go through these hurdles and others that will pop up in our lives as we sail through the new year.

For all of you who believe that God the Father sent His Son Jesus to become one of us as we celebrated Christmas; we need to unite as one in our 2018 new year’s resolution, to spend more quality time with God, for He is still in control and the answer to all our problems.

Happy New Year.

ATS workers on strike

Taitusi Sokiveta,  Phoenix, USA

Return all 250 workers on strike back to work and solve problems later.

These workers have to get back to work right away for the sake of all their families back home.

Food on the table, rent, bus fare, electricity and water bills, financial family needs, medical bills and medical emergency costs is no threats on job security to the strikers by management. Shake hands, and forgive one another.

Let’s move on for the sake of all the 250 strikers’ families and loved ones.

Who will suffer the most?
