Religious clash

They are talking about it in religious circles because it has never been seen before.

This is the uncharacteristic clash between the church leader and one pastor in a church workshop.

The pastor was talking about obedience, loyalty and the power of prayer. He went on and praised his mentor, whom he described as his model.

Before he finished he was rudely interrupted by the church leader.

He said he was angry and told the pastor there was only one mentor, and that was him “no one else.”

The leader then said that he was the only “POWERFUL” Man of God and the rest are called Men of God. He then pointed to his wife and said that she was the only “POWERFUL” woman of God.

He then reiterated what he always told the church on Sundays that their loyalty should only be to him and no one else.

There were members in the packed hall muttering “amen”. But the rest appeared to be in a state of shock.

They could not believe what they were hearing.

The pastor took it on the chin and put on a brave face. BTL understands the leader may have overstepped the mark and could get a backlash.
Near end of contract

Chief Justice Anthony Gates’ contract is due to end next month.

The Constitutional Offices Commission will meet to decide his successor.
It’s Waitui Cluster

BTL can now reveal that the good news from the education sector is about the achievement of the Waitui Cluster in Rewa, which comprises five primary schools, Rewa District School, Vutia District School, Burebasaga District School, St Joseph Primary School Naililili and Nukui District School.

They have seen an improvement in the external exam results after all the stakeholders decided to adopt a holistic approach to better the standard of education.

They went into partnership with the help of sponsorship to sign a memorandum of understanding last year to work collaboratively. On March 22, they will award the top students at Burebasaga District School.

This Friday stakeholders will meet at the same venue to plan the event and analyse the exam results.
Still hoping

A security worker has been waiting for about a year to hear about his grievance claim lodged with the Ministry of Employment.

But he has not given up hope. His grievance is about a former employer, who he claims has not paid what he was owed.

BTL hopes the ministry can sort out this case quickly.
