BTL has heard through the grapevine that the Opposition Office will soon be renovated. Staff and the MPS are likely to move to the old site of Fiji TV, one floor above the Fiji Sun.

WANTED OR NOT WANTED

There is a list of people who are wanted by the Police in connection with various criminal offences.

But it seems that some of them are walking around freely in the urban centres.

One of them has been seen in Suva City on a few occasions walking around like everything is normal, as per information received by BTL.

He has been strolling around the city during the day and even at night without any fear and at times right past Police officers on patrol.
Inconvenience in

Labasa town alley

Remember how the Fiji Sun recently spotlighted the provision of public conveniences in our cities.

Well, Labasa seemingly needs more public conveniences.

Spotted by BTL team over the weekend that a particular alley in town is being used as the spot for men to relieve themselves.

The nearest public convenience is the other side of town.

Something for the new special administrator to think about. Perhaps a user pay system now working in Suva.

Anything to  stop people urinating in public.

Cash power, quick money

As households in the Navua to Galoa corridor slowly get used to the cash power electricity system, some are taking advantage of it.

Following the change of EFL meter boxes to the new cash power system, concerns have been raised by many about the limited cash power recharge outlets in the area.

BTL has found out that some villagers are taking advantage of this by charging people a levy if ‘desperate’ consumers want a top-up when they can’t access the service of a registered agent.

BTL found out that levies range from 50 cents to $2 from those who use their own mPaisa cards.

For example, if one wants to top up my $3 cash power recharge, he or she will have to pay an extra 50cents, $1 or $2 in some areas.

While it is a little relief for some as they do not want to sleep in the dark, it seems like a ripoff.

Is it even legal?

BTL’s new neighbour?

BTL has heard through the grapevine that the Opposition Office will soon be renovated. Staff and the MPS are likely to move to the old site of Fiji TV, one floor above the Fiji Sun.
