e-Passport wait is over

Tukai Lagonilakeba, Nadi

At last the wait is over for all those who have been complaining and become impatient over ePassports.

The technologically-advanced and digitised book where all your travel records are kept in a database and its whereabouts can also be traced via GPS.

Thank you to our FijiFirst Government for revolutionising our travel requirements with the best international practices.

Take action, stop negligence

Penitiko Taoi, Suva

As a concerned citizen and parent it is really frustrating to see the number of children who are left unattended along the roadside in urban and semi-urban areas.

What is more frustrating is that these chil­dren often play beside the roads where traffic is high.

In several situations, I have noticed parents and guardians not holding onto their chil­dren’s hands when crossing the road.

This is a sign of carelessness and ignorance on the adult’s part.

The Fiji Sun this year highlighted that child negligence topped the list after a survey was carried out in 2018 for child-related abuse cas­es.

It stated that the Ministry of Women, Chil­dren and Poverty alleviation has been actively organising workshops, awareness campaigns and training to help eradicate such issues.

So what more can the Government do?

As parents and guardians, the main priority is our children, the future of this nation.

Let’s stop the trend in society where the blame is always on the Government and law enforce­ment authorities.

Let’s pull our socks up and take extra care of our young ones.
