Support me or get out, ketepoka Teleni tells Indian Police Officers

February 18, 2009

Yadra borggers, well ketepoka Teleni where is your god??? You should learn to choose your words wisely because the garbage you spewed out is very unbecoming from someone claiming to be called by god to be Commissioner of Police. The funny thing ketepoka, is that you and your god seem to be the only ones who think you are fit for this position because everyone else does not think so. The good book says, ‘you will know them by their deeds’ and your deeds ketepoka definitely betray you! SWM urges the Indo-Police Officers to stand up to ketepoka the pretender and uphold the rule of law!


Fiji’s police chief has issued an ultimatum to his Indo-Fijian officers to support him or get out of the force, according to a Fiji Television report.

Commodore Esala Teleni had called a meeting with his senior Indo-Fijian officers at Nasova Police Academy, Suva this morning where he issued his stern warning.

It is understood that negative media reports about the police Christian crusade against crime had prompted Commodore Teleni’s lecture.

While Fiji TV was not allowed into the premises, their camera and high powered microphone managed to record Teleni’s speech from a distance.

“If you are with me, you stay, if not you get out,” television footage showed Commodore Teleni saying.

“If you get through that door, get out of the organisation. Kemudou tamata liu muri (you people are not loyal). I don’t know what’s wrong with you people.”
According to the FijiTV footage he also said that he never forced the Indo-Fijain officers to come to the Police crusade – he only encouraged them.

Commodore Teleni warned his officers against taking their grievances to the media.

He also suggested that he had names and threatened that heads could roll.

“Either you come with me and take this organisation forward or you get out,” he said.

“Onlylamulamu people (cowards) will go to the press. That will not solve the problem. I have a list of people. I’m going to start terminating their services. I am not hesitant to do that.

“I can sack everyone here sitting here today and I can recruit another 200 Indian officers today. I have no problems to do that. Fiji TV, Fiji Sun, Fiji Times will not help you. Let me remind you that any other Indian officers will not help you. Commissioner will help you.”

Commodore Teleni then went on to say that happenings of the “last few days” have hardened his resolve and faith.

He urged his officers to respect his religion just as he respected theirs.

    it disappeared on the same train that carted away the bovine excreta that is called the military charter; note that the thief, slimy samy, is the driver of this express train to oblivion.

    tellytubby fullchow teleni must be exhausted after his frantic efforts of the past week.

    First he is dragged away from his dinner table to go to a police station to harass some traveller who had the audacity to accuse slimy samy of stealing his money. After threatening to lock up the traveller, fullchow was satisfied that the matter was settled. he returned home to find that his guards had eaten his supper.

    This made him angry as he could smell curry in his house so he called all of the Indian police ‘officers’ to a meeting yesterday to berate them for stealing his supper. He also said a few more nasty things.

    The poor chap was so exhausted that he could only eat 6 courses of his lunch yesterday.

    Wouldn’t it be great if there was a mass resignation from the police and army.

    The beauty of Teleni’s outburst is that it has shown the Indians , particularly the Non Christians , that they are no better off under the Cyclops with his one eyed views of justice :-

    Did anyone notice his cateract in the photo of the Fiji Times today , proves he is one eyed indeed :-

    The truth is finally hitting home to those who believe that cruise ships are the financial saviour of Fijian tourist operators.

    “””””Local business owners are not happy with their sale when tourists come on shore from cruise liners.

    Handicraft owners said there were a few sales when tourists failed to purchase any items from them.

    Kinisimere Volau, a licensed businesswoman said tourists were not willing to spend.

    “They are not buying from us in the way they used to do before,’’ she said.

    “We came here with high expectation and we know others are also thinking the same but the truth is we are having few sales.”

    Distraught businessman Viliame Tomu said buses awaited the arrival of cruise liners at the Kings Wharf to take them directly to the large retail shops in town.

    “We are not aware of the reason but that has contributed a lot to our loss. I mean we expect tourists to come and buy from us but they are not doing it actually,’’ he said.

    “We sit here from the morning until now (afternoon) and no one has managed to make a single sale.”

    The Saga Rose was in Suva yesterday and the fourth cruise liner to arrive in the month of February.”””””””

    Some facts for these people to digest:-

    1. people in Aust and NZ book a cruise to tie in with the dates of their annual holidays. Where the ship goes in the South Pacific is immaterial

    2. Passengers on cruise ships are warned of the political instability in Fiji, especially in Suva. Less than half of the passengers and crew would go ashore in Suva

    3. Passengers are warned that wooden ‘artifacts’ purchased could be confiscated by quarantine authorities in Australia. When the ship returns to Sydney, there are a large number of people who are given a choice by quarantine; pay $100 to have the wooden object fumigated or pass it over for incineration.

    The word is soon spread around the dinner tables the next time these people go on a cruise.

    4. tourist don’t wish to buy a ‘Bula’ shirt ” made in china”.

    What is the surprise here folks?

    Why are the Indo-Fijians so surprised. This coup is not about racial harmony, it is about greedy opportunists and people with a huge chip on their shoulder, al busy using each other to get what they think they want.

    In the long run, Indo Fijians will suffer under this regime…

    But the revelation for all to see here is just how Frank and his bunnies view Fiji. Support me or else because there is a line of of opportunists and easy to buy people waiting to take your place.

    It is this simple fact that holds this coup together. Fiji people are easily bought. $2.00 will do. There are very few who hold onto to ‘principles’ who are willing to stand up for a principle and can be shut up either with a simple bribe or a perceived threat.

    Remember Ghandhi. A great leader. No Security guards, so airs and graces. Just simply stood by what he believes in in the most humble way and even forgave the guy who shot him right there on the spot.

    Fiji has much to learn as do all of our so called leaders…

    Is that the principle of christian theology, you don’t respect my religion get out.
    Think the christian way of doing things is dialog, praying for one another and trying to see where the misunderstanding is its simple. Only through dialog and discussion things can be solve.
    The Teleni principle is a dictatorship and that will not help the Police force.

    Frank has opened a can of worms :-
    This shows why religion and politics don’t mix . You only have to get a person with extremist views in to a position of authority and all hell breaks loose potentially !

    Well – it is all coming out from within and it will backlash on them and their many suppoerters like what we have seen in the illegal PM’s flood appeal donations. These people do not know what discrimination is that is why they were challenging the affirmative action policies of the elected government. he wants others to respect his religion and he himself not respecting others religion when they chose not to join him. What a pathetic man!

    And to think that this coup had the overwhelming support of the Indian Community

    Well well well!!!

    This is a sign of desperation, threatening people to get what they want.

    Perhaps it is a good thing!

    Now the Indian Community will realize that they had been used all along.

    The Indian Community should stand up to Teleni and make his threat not credible.

    Keep your fingers crossed bloggers – the Indian Community may just do the job for us? ? ? ? ? ?

    If this is how serious Teleni is about justice, righteousness and rule of law, he can send the same warning to the Interim Regime, then we will see who is the “lamulamu” here.

    So sad! I just noticed Teleni’s eyes. They don’t seem to see straight. God blesses us with eyes that can see clearly and God wants us to use it for HIS straight path, so everything we do and see must be led on a straight course that is centred in Christ. It is when we begin to misuse the eyes to see our own paths rather than see the straight path that God sees and which HE wants us to see and follow, it is then that our eyes literally become defocused and we become cross-eyed in the process. My prayer is that we all try and centre our eyes on Christ and what HE wants us to see and do lest we too become cross-eyed literally and mentally.

    Well it seems the Indian Community wasn’t brave enough to stand up to Teleni.

    What a shame? How could people go along with such antics? They must live fear!

    Makes me very sad that the very people most Indians thought would protect them are now showing their true colours.

    No disrespect intended of course when I say “Indians”, it seems now that the general tune we all once heard has changed.

    For the most absolute worse.
