Well, that is where SODELPA’s Ro Filipe Tuisawau intends to get his feedback from. He recently posted on Chat Fiji page asking people to email him if their loans had been declined because they are on contracts. A pandora’s box is being opened by this so-called politics graduate.

Tuisawau’s post on Chat Fiji

Anyone who is on Facebook will know of the page Chat Fiji and the laughter that goes on there.

Well, that is where SODELPA’s Ro Filipe Tuisawau intends to get his feedback from. He recently posted on Chat Fiji page asking people to email him if their loans had been declined because they are on contracts.

A pandora’s box is being opened by this so-called politics graduate.

Maybe he should relook at the bipartisan approach, a mighty big word he would have no doubt read in The Economist among other places. What a mighty man he is.

 

Unregistered chief keeps trying

The unregistered chief from a village in the Northern Division is trying his best with his supporters to be registered with the Native Lands Commission.

It is understood that the NLC is firm on its decision that he cannot be registered because the chiefly position belongs to the chiefly clan of the particular village.

The unregistered chief is from another village and his only link to the village is from the mother’s side.

He is not registered in his mother’s VKB.
Special welcome for horses

Some villages in the district of Sawaieke in Gau organised special welcomes for their horses given to them by the Ministry of Agriculture.

At Somosomo Village, they clothed the horses, wreaths were tied on their necks and baby powder was poured on them. This was followed by a yaqona ceremony to traditionally welcome them to the village.

These horses were part of the 32 horses bought by the Ministry of Agriculture to help farmers in Gau for the transportation of their farm produce from the farm to the village and then to the market.

The Turaga-ni-koro of each village is responsible for the horses and he should give the permission for their usage.
Reviving tradition of canoe making

BTL has been reliably told that a team from the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs is at Fulaga, Lau, to revive their canoe building tradition.

It is understood that there is only one surviving elderly man in Fulaga who knows the construction of a Fijian canoe using just coconut fibers (magimagi).

Altogether there are 20 participants five from Ogea and four each from four the villages in Fulaga. This programme will take two weeks.

Hopefully, when the participants return they will have the knowledge of the construction of this type of canoe.
