Traffic Police

Narayan Reddy, Lautoka

A big thank you to the lady traffic Police officers who were controlling traffic around Lautoka city.

From the 5am church-organised march until the Sangam convention march these officers did a wonderful job.

The ratepayers association of Lautoka would like the thank Lautoka Police for doing a good job with traffic in our city.


Family Heritage

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

Up here in the north there have been several cases in which families have sold their land on which their loved ones are buried.

It is unfortunate how money has taken precedence over family heritage.

Land is useful because you can grow food and it can sustain your life and that of your family’s in many ways.

Having land also presents so many opportunities as an investment. Owning your own land is an avenue to revenue generation as well as owning an asset that has real value.

It is indeed heartbreaking to see families who have owned property for decades and even over a century to let it go for a mere short-term financial gain.

To sell the property on which your parents and grandparents are buried is not only tragic, but just shows how little families value each other.

Indeed, a sad case by landowners who have not only lost their family land, but also gave up their burial ground!

Family land and family burial grounds should never be traded for money!


Biman contradicts himself

Kaushal Kumar, Suva

During the 2018 election campaign, NFP was full of contradictions. First, they said they would implement a $5 minimum wage immediately after consultations.

When asked to provide a study and results of the consultations they changed the story … the $5 minimum wage would be decided upon after the first 100 days of consultations.

They said they were not allied with SO- DELPA, look at them now going to court together like best friends.

Biman Prasad claimed he was fighting for the poor and now appears to support a rise in bus fares.

Full of contradictions!


Biman Prasad And Bus Fares

Premila Singh, Suva
I read Biman Prasad’s take on the bus crisis where he states that the Government has frozen bus fares for 10 years.

He also said that the Government should leave the bus fare increase decision to LTA. I think every Fijian can now breathe a sigh of relief that not selecting NFP was indeed the correct decision.

Has he ever travelled on a bus?

Poor people depend on buses and depend on Government fighting for them and not increasing bus fares.

As a Fijian who travels by bus regularly, I would like to thank Government and urge them to ignore those who are thinking of self gain instead of our welfare.
