Domestic Violence

Sonal Sharma, Suva

I am writing to express my deepest concern about domestic violence against women in our country. Recently there has been a rapid increase in the number of cases of domestic violence.

As we flip the pages of the newspapers and see the headlines, we come over many headlines such as domestic violence against women, harassment against women, rape and murder cases where the husband kills his wife.

Domestic violence is not only about physically hurting a person; it also includes emotional abuse, economic abuse and sexual violence. The offences come in the midst of increased concern about domestic violence against women in Fiji.  It looks like those who commit these offences no longer fear the law. They assume they can commit these crimes and will escape without punishment easily. Harsh penalties should be given to these criminals, so that they will think twice before committing any of these crimes again and because it will make others think twice before committing any of these crimes. The law should be really strong that nobody can think of committing such crimes. There should be equal respect for men and women in a society.

These crimes happen because some men think they are stronger than women and that women are weak. This thinking needs to change.
Trash from heavy rain

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

If there is one thing that the heavy rain around the country has revealed, it is our trash!

Rubbish has washed out and washed over everywhere!

Plastic, most of all, makes up most of the  garbage!

It’s as if nature is trying to remind us of how reckless we are!

We definitely have huge problems disposing our waste!
Annoying potholes

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

The streets of Suva are filled with potholes. Some of them are trenches. If it rains and water fills them then you don’t know they are there. Falling in them can cost you a tyre or ruin your suspension system.

The Fiji Roads Authority is responsible for keeping the roads in proper condition. I wonder if the staff and leadership drive the same roads I travel on.

The men and women in our Government agencies who have the direct responsibility to look after the roads need to step up. We should not have to complain about the state of the roads in the newspapers. Find some asphalt. Get some workers to drive around with it. Patch the potholes! It’s that simple. Where necessary resurface roads.

We the citizens do not care if they are Government workers or private contractors. We are tired of falling in holes as we go from place to place. Potholes are annoying and can be dangerous
Buca Bay Road

A  Shariff Shah, Savusavu

Can the FRA please maintain the unsealed road from Kasavu to Napuka and Natuvu.

I guess the previous contractor was doing a very good job.

They knew what they were doing.

What’s changed?
