Khaiyum Guilty of "Economic Lunacy"

Image result for khaiyum fiji

“There is only one difference between a bad economist and a good one: The bad economist confines himself to the visible effect; the good economist takes into account both the effect that can be seen and those effects that must be foreseen.”

I said it before and will say it again, Khaiyum as Fiji Finance Minister is inviting economic lunacy to descend on Fiji. And yesterday's clandestine announcement to seek Parliamentary approval for bridging…

A i Cavuti : Chiefly Titles of Provinces & Districts in Fiji

Fijians belong to one of the 14 provinces (yasana) in Fiji that form part of three confederacies (matanitu) - Kubuna, Burebasaga, Tovata, which in prechristian times, were separate states (vanua) in themselves ruled by high chiefs. Each province is further divided into districts (tikina) which in turn comprise a number of…

Fiji Military – Decline of a Once Revered Institution


On this day, 23 June, in 1944, on Mawaraka in the Solomons, my grandfather, Sefanaia Sukanaivalu, died a glorious death fighting for his King and country under the banner of the Fiji Military. For the bravery and courage he showed on the day, he was awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that…

2009 Fiji Appeal Court Ruling on the 2006 Bainimarama Coup

Read the Ruling below and stay Reminded that the Bainimarama Government Illegally Seized Power in 2006 and were Ruled to be so!

Therefore its rule, 2013 Constitution, decrees, programmes and policies since 05 December 2006 are illegal.

There is nothing in law to prevent the reinstatement of the 1997 Constitution!

Where To Now For The Opposition in Fiji Parliament?

With a heavy heart I pen this piece following Ratu Naiqama's patently unjust suspension from the house earlier today. The decision also begs real questions of the Opposition given its inability to make a difference against the torrent of procedural abuse by the Fiji First regime!

We all knew it was always going to be tough as the rules of the game let alone numbers were stackec against them from the start. All realised that the:

Ratu Naiqama case = Fait Accompli = Dangerous Precedent

Any move to sanction the utterances of an MP spoken outside of Parliament, is tantamount to gagging free speech!

But will that make an iota of difference to an FFP government that is drunk on power and vindictive intentions? Don't think so and Fiji is now on another crest of an even more dangerous trajectory as democracy gets sacrificed by sheer weight of numbers in the guise of parliamentary rule.

Even worse and…

Fiji Parliament Standing Orders A Joke!

Pray someone tell me how on earth something uttered outside of parliament in Fiji can ever be adjudged to contravene the standing orders? Even granted that those standing orders were written by the party running government without any contribution from other political parties!

Even worsen when it is public knowledge in Fiji and on YouTube that Bainimarama, the PM himself, can be heard threatening to throw a bottle at an Opposition MP IN…

Unfinished Business – Return of iTaukei Qoliqoli (Fishing rights)

Death of Democracy in Fiji

Elation and hope following election in Fiji last year, has now given way to doom and pessimism as the Bainimarama government continues its dictatorial ways.

This behavior was evident well before the new parliament set. Rules for running parliament and MPs pay were unilaterally set by the regime without the input of other political parties or their elected MPs.

Once parliament began, the bias of the Speaker in controlling debates and the questioning of ministers…

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…

Who is Bainimarama & Khaiyum Fooling?

Painful when the occasion is being overseen by Khaiyum who, like a half castrated tom cat, put…

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…
