Our PM

Shariff Shah, Savusavu

Welcome back sir.

We did not stop praying for you. Belated Merry Christmas and a happy 2019 to you and your family.

 

Rent services

Shiu Kumar, Korovou, Tailevu

Can the present Government take control of the entire rent services in our nation? Rents for flats and houses in the capital city are too high to be afforded.

Some flats and houses that are not in a condition to be used have the rental value as high as $700.

This exorbitant price is not manageable by ordinary people in our nation, looking at the economy at large.

 

Fake rumors

Tomasi Boginiso,

Nasinu
It was very sad reading rumours about

our Prime Minister being dead and these rumours might have not gone well with some people especially the family, relatives and close associates.

To prevent you from hearing such rumours in the future click or anyone else associated with these people.

They are just similar to the hoax calls and the spam emails you receive now and then. Please ignore them and you will be just fine.

 

Golden triangle

Floyd Robinson, Suva

In terms of the illegal drug trade, is Fiji becoming the golden triangle of the South Pacific?

Just as much as one may not want to agree, the recent marijuana raids in Kadavu estimated at $2.3 million is a major concern.

What about the unreported cases of marijuana sales and plantations, especially given that some terrain in Kadavu are difficult to access?

Earlier this year, at least 30 bars of cocaine were washed up ashore in Savusavu and Lau. This was valued at around $43mil- lion.

Confiscated and discovered drugs may represent the tip of the iceberg.

Imagine how much more drugs are being cultivated, processed and traded in comparison to the discovery of $43 million dollars worth of cocaine.

How safe are our children from drugs? One hopes that it has not infiltrated our boarding schools.

All in all we hope that Fiji is not becoming a centre for the drug trade for the South Pacific because there are a number of ports of entry as well as isolated islands which cannot be monitored for financial reasons.

Whatever one’s views, the battle against illegal drugs is a community effort starting at homes and communities. The Police cannot do this alone and, in this regard, we must work together.

 

Which Supermarket?

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi
The news is welcomed by the Fijian consumers or shoppers of the particular supermarket, but the name of the supermarket which has been avoiding the payment of its millions in tax to the Fiji Revenue and Customs Service has not been exposed.

We have the right to know so we can also collectively avoid going shopping there to show and register our utter disgust at their conduct.

Please tell Fiji so we can react in the appropriate manner and the best way possible.

Vinaka vakalevu to the whistleblower and team FRCA.
