United Fiji

Joan McGoon, Nadi

Social Media is ablaze with comments by in­dividuals responding to a question from His Excellency, the President, on what the Consti­tution means to them. Many are negative while many others are much more positive.

The Constitution is meant to bring freedom and liberty to all and this can only be estab­lished if it is practised. Not just believed or mentioned.

As we all bask in our constitutional rights granted by our forefathers to bring unity and peace for all who reside within Fiji’s borders, may we remember that we are only as strong as our weakest link.

Thus, we must strengthen our weak ones and together build a strong and united Fiji.

 

Bizzare expectations

Joji Toronibau, Tunuloa, Cakaudrove

After spending a week in Labasa trying to get a few Registration of Birth Certificates for my grannies, I was flabbergasted by the tune of the service providers at the department.

Birth certificates were not correct. For ex­ample, the name of another Mataqali was inadvertently scripted on my grannie’s birth certificate.

Are the systems not linked? What angered me was that in order to change a word, you need to pay $10.50 excluding the B/Certificate itself. Asking assistance again, I was blatantly told that; “it was from the top”.

Are people in Viti Levu facing the same? I have a feeling that people react viciously to this and, believe me, there must have been few “punch –ups” along some office.

I have a feeling that these institutions are ser­vice providers, but gone are those days.

Are they now a money-generating institu­tion?

Yes, I understand, that for processing there is a fee but not too exorbitant as to what we are witnessing now at the RBDM. I rest my case.

 

Motorists must show respect

Spencer Robinson, Suva

Can the authorities do something about careless motorists who use Domain Road in Nasese, Suva?

I have come across many irresponsible driv­ers while taking a walk along this road.

The speed I tell you, it is like they driving on the highway. It is like they own the road, they drive full speed, pass you smiling and I can im­agine in their minds they are saying ‘this is my turf!’

May I sincerely request all motorists using this frequented road to be cautious and be mindful too of pedestrians who also use this route to work or for their morning and after­noon walks or jogs.

Please stop this reckless driving and do the needful, be considerate!
