Talent Deficit Syndrome:The Story of FijiFirst Party

by Sai Lealea



Even before full campaigning starts, one thing is getting clearer each day; how Fiji has been lumped with a bunch of lackluster people in government with Dictator Bainimarama who lack talent when compared to the candidates of parties now announced to stand in the 17 September Election. 



Pound for pound on intellect, intelligence and common touch,…

Cry No More My Beloved Fiji

by Sai Lealea

There can be no doubt Fiji and its people have literally been pouring their hearts out and shedding untold tears. This has been due to the loss of their freedom and the abuse of their human rights and dignity since the overthrow of the elected government of PM Qarase in December 2006 by the Dictator Bainimarama. That national outpouring of grief and tears is beginning to abate and tears are slowly drying as they see a glimmer of hope in the…

Dictator Bainimarama's Forcible Attempt At Unifying Races In Fiji!

By Sai Lealea



The unilateral decision by the unelected and illegal regime to designate the name "Fijian" to refer to all Fiji citizens or nationals, instead of Fiji Islanders, will never be acceptable to Fijians or natives of Fiji. 



Since the 19th century, natives of Fiji have been referred to as Fijians and the whole world have also come to adopt it, though accepting confusion over ethnicity and…

Having to end today with the news of the Fiji military regime finally unveiling its final version of its Constitution for Fiji can only be described as a real painful experience, yet unexpected.

Fijian Militarism and Strong State Ideology

 by Sai Lealea

As the Bainimarama dictatorship in Fiji lurches towards seeking legitimacy in proposed elections in 2014, its policy in militarising large sections of indigenous Fijian society and public life appears widespread and intrusive. This has in turn skewed Fijians’ view of the State as repressive and complicit in destroying key institutional practices and regard for their place in their own home land. Unless…

To Love or Not To Love, That is the Question?

Something Different - Love Soliloquy



Just why am I so in love with you I ask? Try as I may, just can't work out why and why you? Am wrecking my brain over it as I never have been here before! Please help me work it out! Is this real love? If so then I am equally as puzzled as confused by it! Me for all people! Someone who has made an art of not revealing emotion that easily nor surrendering affection easily…

"Who Dares Win": A Call to Remove Dictatorship in Fiji

by Sai Lealea



The flip side to the famous motto of the British Special Air Services (SAS) is that lack of courage never result in victory. Therein lie the glaring gap in what is required in Fiji to remove the Bainimarama dictatorship. Even worse, such a gap exists even within the current military, among those most able and with the opportuni…

Turning a Blind Eye - Fijians in the Bainimarama Cabinet

by Sai Lealea



Many indigenous Fijians struggle to understand the motivations of fellow Fijians who have been propping up the Bainimarama dictatorship by serving in its cabinet. At best, they are regarded as being blind to the politics of it all, a contradiction both in term and practice, and only interested in salvaging the national interest. At worst, they are blatant opportunists who have no moral fibre in…

“To Be or Not To Be, That is the Question for Fiji”

by Sai Lealea

Once a student of English literature when a sixth former at Ratu Kadavulevu School in Fiji, I regard the opening line in Shakespeare’s famous soliloquy in Hamlet as a gut wrenching reminder of the state of mind that persists around efforts to salvage Fiji from the "slings and arrows" of the Bainimarama dictatorship.

Just as Hamlet had questioned the meaning of life, and whether or not it is worthwhile to stay sane when life in Fiji for the last 6…

It's All About Mandate

by Sai Lealea



"A government afraid of its citizens is a Democracy. Citizens afraid of government is Tyranny!" - Thomas Jefferson.



Since December 2006, the Bainimarama dictatorship has been methodical and brutal putting down opposition to its illegal rule. Citizens of Fiji have been well and truly made to fear the military regime. It is…

UN Has No Care for Lack of Democracy in Fiji

by Sai Lealea



The decision by the UN to accept Fijian soldiers for peacekeeping duties in the Golan is further evidence it has no respect or care about the lack of democracy in Fiji under the Bainimarama dictatorship. It is a sad commentary on the UN and its inability to live by its various charters and principles so elegantly crafted to provide the bulwark for its…
