Letters: 3rd June, 2019

I particularly like our PM Bainimarama’s speech in Nairobi where he said and I quote; “Ownership grants confidence, confidence fuels investment and investment builds resilience” unquote from the Fiji Sun report page 11, Thursday, May 30. The statement puts the current FijiFirst leadership and Government way apart from those troubled SODELPA and NFP opposition parties, definitely Fijians and FijiFirst a must.

Fish Ban

Floyd Robinson, Toorak

Having read a copy of the newspapers the other day, I rushed to go to the fridge to check the fish in our storage.

One notes the Ministry of Fishery ban on Kawakawa and Donu.

In particular, those found disobeying the ban can expect hefty fines.

All in all, congratulations to the Ministry of Fisheries for taking such a bold stance.

This is in the best interests of present and future generations. Meanwhile, I was so glad to find out that it was Sabutu in the fridge.

I can enjoy a nice dish of fish this weekend, knowing fully that I will still be respecting the important ban.

For some, it will be quite difficult as they are used to A Grade fish such as Donu and Kawakawa.

For others, it will mean selecting other fish for a few months until the ban is over.

PM’s Kenya Visit

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

His visit could boost and promote 7s rugby for the diehard Kenya rugby fans, which is great for rugby internationally.

Because it is now professional and is a job well earned by those who can make it into renowned rugby clubs the world over.

Informal settlements with its settlers around the world are normally seen, denigrated and branded as second-class citizens or no status for that matter of those particular state.

They are looked down upon and simply put they do not have access to good sanitation, a proper housing, clean water, electricity, education and bad access to good health facilities.

Post-Independence from 1970 our country has gone through many very discriminating political leaderships with dirty politics and discriminating policies.

Some of them are still alive and are still in Opposition parties today, but under a different banner until 2006 when the Bainimarama regime came into power.

In Fiji we are now very fortunate that this has changed through our world-acclaimed 2013 Constitution and from the political will of the Bainimarama FijiFirst Government to make it right for all Fijians and create equality for all who call this country home, irrespective of one’s social status.

It is a great service to mankind, religion and God.

PM Bainimarama’s speech and call in Nairobi, Kenya, to world leaders to recognise informal settlers in their own countries speaks volumes of the man and his leadership qualities here at home, where it is recognised in the UN and the Commonwealth.

It should resonate beyond our borders for the sake of humanity.

One can never be rated among the Top 10 Global Thinkers for World Leaders without showing such immense responsibility to the world.

I particularly like our PM Bainimarama’s speech in Nairobi where he said and I quote; “Ownership grants confidence, confidence fuels investment and investment builds resilience” unquote from the Fiji Sun report page 11, Thursday, May 30.

The statement puts the current FijiFirst leadership and Government way apart from those troubled SODELPA and NFP opposition parties, definitely Fijians and FijiFirst a must.

Green Yaqona Sale

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

The call to ban the sale of green yaqona by farmers on Taveuni is easier said than done.

It is literally impossible to manage and police such a demand.

As it is we cannot manage and police our marine resources, we cannot manage and police littering and sure cannot even manage and police jaywalking!

The problem needs to be dealt with at the source and that is to catch and charge the thieves with the toughest of penalties.

And some of the resources used to fight illicit drugs needs to be diverted to fighting the drug in yaqona!
