Natokowaqa youths of Lautoka have rallied their support for Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama in light of adverse comments by individuals on social media platforms.

The more than 30 members and volunteers of Providing Young Generation in Every Movement Society (PYGMIES) have hit out against individuals who continue to spread hate comments.

“We the youths of Natokowaqa support the PM. Because of him we are now working and are surviving,” PYGMIES founder and president, Josateki Labalaba said.

“Now we are more than happy.”

Speaking to the Fiji Sun, the youths stood by Mr Bainimarama because he created opportunities for them under the Yellow Ribbon Project.

Mr Labalaba said more than 15 members of the group were former inmates but were now employed enabling them to support their families after going through the project.

“No Government has ever done what this Government has done for us. They have given us jobs under this Yellow Ribbon Project,” he said.

“Alongside that they have supported us by giving the youths a multipurpose court which we can use in our leisure time and this also helps youths keep away from crime.

He said when some members of the group had served their time in prison they were given another opportunity to be welcomed back into the community.

“I want to encourage the people of Fiji not to be brainwashed by critics, we must continue to support our leaders,” he added.
