Rubbish collection

Tomasi Boginiso , Nasinu

I have observed in recent times that there has been more rubbish on the road side than ever before.

With the introduction of daily rubbish collection, the public assumed that their rubbish would be taken care of.

This is in the form of the time that they place their rubbish on the roadside for collection.

However, the people of Nasinu have been putting their rubbish on the road at any time convenient to them , knowing that it would be collected at any time, and if missed that it would be collected the next day.

Unfortunately for the rubbish that still remains on the roadside, it is taken apart by the dogs in the area.

These are the rubbish that are on the streets and no one seems to care.

I hope that some measures are taken to solve this litter problem.

Rabuka on the budget

Dharmendra Kumar , Rewa Street, Suva

The Opposition leader Sitiveni Rabuka in giving his expert views on the budget is indeed hilarious.

Whilst being the Prime Minister back then, he did nothing for the Fijians apart from the collapsing of the NBF and here he tries to lecture a ‘smart’ government.

“Wise man speaks because they have something to say; some speak because they have to say something.”

The Minister for Economy hit the nail right on the head when he said: “It’s not Rabuka at the helm steering the country’s economy, but Voreqe Bainimarama”.

I recall Mr Rabuka as the leader who was an expert in getting the wrong things done over and over again.

You were given a few opportunities, but you did nothing for the people apart from the NBF collapse and the violence people endured during the 1987 coup.

It’s time to sit, listen and learn.

Kava drinking

Simon Hazelman , Savusavu

The observation made by members of the Catholic Church in Fiji that some priests spend lots of time consuming kava is not only a very well-known fact, but it’s happening in just about every Christian Church denomination.

It has long time been a habit that binds us as its slaves.

Kava drinking is a national problem, happening consistently in the heart of our churches and homes, and everywhere else where it is consumed.

While drinking kava in a moderate and sensible manner is acceptable the problem is that the majority would rather consume it in an extremely abusive manner with the ultimate aim to get doped, in the same way that alcohol makes one drunk, and in the same way in which smoking marijuana makes one stoned. The outcome is pretty much the same.

The simple fact that the majority of priests consume kava clearly shows the status in which our so-called Christian faith is operating, in a doped, drunken, stoned state!

It’s no wonder then why many churches are failing! There is an invisible garment woven around us from many years of abuse and the habit has become our worst enemy!

When you sow an act you reap a habit, when you sow a habit you reap a character, and when you sow a character you reap a destiny, and boy, we have long gone reaching that destiny!

Abusive kava drinking has led us to deny Christ each and every day!

We have definitely lost the plot!
