Necessary for PM to commend the Attorney-General

Simon Hazelman, Rava Estate, Savusavu

It was not only necessary but prudent for Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama to comment and defend our Attorney-General from unwarranted and disrespectful comments on social media.

Our A-G, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, is an exceptional individual and by far the most educated man to hold the Attorney-General’s post.

It is rather unfortunate to read comments on social media undermining his credibility. Such baseless accusations are not only morally wrong but senseless and totally inappropriate.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum has a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice from the University of Wollongong, a Bachelors Degree in Law from the University of NSW, a Bachelors Degree in Political Science from the Australian National University, and a Masters Degree in Law from the University of Hong Kong.

For goodness sake, the man is not only very intelligent but has a greater intellect than the majority of Fijians!

Listen to him and you may learn something useful. Listen to him carefully and you will come to realise just how fortunate we are to have such a wise and sensible man.

We ought to be grateful to have someone with such knowledge and capability at the helm of the most important public office position.

Unless your name is Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, stop commenting like you know everything!

Sevens Support

Wise Muavono, Lautoka

Supporting our 7s warriors is not a matter of only when they are winning.

Real supporters are those who stay steadfast during the bad times. I still believe, always have and always will. Areh, Go Fiji go.

ps: I heard that a family resorted to sandwich for their Sunday lunch because their pot of lamb curry landed upside down in their backyard after Fiji’s loss in the quarterfinal.

Lady of the house must be a die hard fan. Hahaha.

FRU Lottery

Narayan Reddy, Lautoka

Everyone is questioning Baber and the 7s team performance.

Can someone please tell me whatever happened to the lottery some years back.

Misuse of Words

Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi

I’m not an expert in the i-Taukei language, but there seems to be misuse of words in the radio programmes.

For example, the use of the word qaravi (to serve) is now used instead of vakayacori (to happen).

Qaravi is used in qaravi tevoro (evil worship) or when someone is sick and needs care. Maybe an expert can help!

Justice Billboard

Joan McGoon, Nadi

Travelling into Namaka, a billboard outside Namaka Public school looms tall and almost foreboding with the word Justice highlighted.

For this to be served as a public reminder causes one to wonder why the need for the sign?

Does this mean Justice is almost absent? In light of the ATS saga, how thrilling to observe the sense of justice that workers must have felt after a month of fighting for their economic rights.

Justice will be a long battle and uphill climb for our shores it seems. 

We’re even advertising it on billboards to remind visitors and locals alike.

God bless and protect Fijians from injustices!

Clean air

John Brown, Lautoka

Every morning a lot of people go for morning walk and I do the same. The clean air and regular exercise keeps me healthy.

Well I got a small request to the cleaners of Lautoka City who use blower machines early in the morning.

I think the person who operates the blower machine didn’t read the user manual because he blows the dust to oncoming people.

Please I am old and I don’t want to pick a fight early in the morning, but I will pick a fight if I have too.

Lautoka City Council if you read this letter please give some training to the person who uses a blower machine in front of Tappoos building please or better still if you can do it at a time when people are not using that area.
