Offshore armchair keyboard cowards

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

I am personally saddened to read of the many very negative, degrading, disrespectful and irresponsible utterances and claims against our late Madam Speaker of Parliament, Dr Jiko Luveni.

They stoop so low and forget that she was a senior Fijian citizen, a wife, mother, grandmother to her many wonderful and respectable families.

She was hard-working and had contributed her fair share of obligation to nation building.

She remained a true daughter of Fiji until her demise where she never migrated, but remained true to her calling to serve the nation in whatever capacity she was called to do.

She was a ‘Marama’ who loved the occasional veiwali or jokes from which one would never hear her utter a bad word about anyone.

She was assertive, considerate and respectful in all walks of life and was very accessible despite her high office with its many challenges.

The manners or comments are disgraceful to say the least on the Fiji Exposed Forum on Facebook and are deplorable.

Kerekere to all those Fijians keyboard cowards offshore, can you all please pause for a moment and for one second think if Dr Jiko was your wife, mother, sister, aunty or daughter?

It hurts if others say such undeserved comments that are now leveled against her. Would you defend it?

Keyboard warriors are now at it again about our Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama who was just discharged from the MIOT Hospital in Suva.

Facebook is full of deceitful Fijians: that have been consistent in their lies that the Prime Minister is dead.

It is not nice, and is disrespectful and wrong. This attitude depicts people of an unstable mind, who are full of hatred which is bad for one’s health and if not treated it can easily result in death, but I do hope their many Fijian children are not taught this shameful nonsense.

The contribution of the late Madam Speaker and our Prime Minister is incomparable both at national and international level, something these cowardly critics and their families will never match put together.

 

Speaker’s passing

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

Indeed it was an untimely loss for the nation! My condolences to the family of Dr Jiko Luveni (Speaker of Parliament).

May the good Lord protect and comfort them during this difficult time.

What was disturbing here was that immediately after the announcement of her death on social media, some detested her with aggressive, vile comments using the occasion to bid her good riddance!

It’s obvious where these unwarranted and un-Christian like comments are coming from and it just shows how shallow- minded and naive people are!

The lowest of the low!

It’s one thing to call on the living, but it’s another to criticise the dead.

We need a law that gives the right for

surviving relatives to sue people for such ludicrous attacks on the deceased because it damages the family’s reputation and in terferes with their private lives.

Our moral, religious and political traditions ought to be united in our respect for the dignity and life of Dr Luveni!

It is indeed a sad occasion, for the family, and for the people we’ve become!
