ONI KIRWIN FAILS AGAIN

After a lapse of a number of years controversial agita­tor Oni Kirwin is back.

This time on social media trying to stir up her Matuku people to question the Tui Matuku title.

But she has failed again.

The last time she tried something here was in 2014-15 when she cam­paigned for a Christian state. She was at the centre of a rebel movement in Ra and Sigatoka.

A number of people were convicted of sedition and jailed.

Matuku chief Roko Alipate Baleilakeba said then they did not support (Oni) Kir­win’s idea of the formation of Christian States in Fiji.

The seven villages of Matuku – Yaroi, Natokalau, Qalikarua, Levukaidaku, Makadru, Raviravi and Lomati, he said, supported Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama-led FijiFirst Government.

One Matuku man was heard saying: “We will re­member him, come Novem­ber 14.”

‘KILLED’ BY THE

RECORDS

A father of four from Na­dogo, Saqani, Cakaudrove had travelled to Suva to get his three children’s birth certificates.

But he got a shock when he discovered that his middle child, an eight-year-old girl, was supposed to be dead.

Her birth certificate was marked deceased in big bold letters.

He needed the birth certifi­cates to register them in the iTaukei geneology record, Vola ni Kawa Bula (VKB).

Full scale investigations have started to find out how the mistake was made be­fore a new birth certificate is issued with the removal
