Rabuka how deep are you in all this shit?

April 15, 2009

A month ago Rabuka said Voreqe’s illegal interim government should run for five years like democratically elected ones.

Just this week someone claiming to be from Viseisei wrote on this blog that the Vanua of Vuda has tried twice to go to Government House and traditionally ask to take Iloilo back to Vuda. Both were rejected.

On the second approach, Rabuka was there and actually present a Tabua (i diriki) to reject the second approach.

What the hell was Rabuka doing there in the first place? is it that the old axis of evil has been reactivated? Also known as Kilavata Taxi!!

Remember Rabuka was PM and Eveli Ganilua was Commander when Eveli recommended that Vore suceeded him and Rabuka endorsed it as PM. The common denominator here must be the Regimental Fund and if one jumps they all jump.

It seems kind of ironic that gone with the abrogation of the Constitution is Rabuka’s immunity I believe!

his arse is finally exposed , let’s prosecute and lock him up for sure this time!!!

    Maybe Rabuka can smell the money.
    Maybe he thinks he’s bullet-proof, sele-proof and prosecution-proof.
    But he’s one of the backers of this regime, he will die by that sword.
    God bless Fiji

    We must all remember Rabuka couped and ended up as Fiji’s PM.

    It endorsed that all is OK if one coups in Fiji one can still become PM. I said before half of Fiji’s population know nothing about “democracy” and therefore are ignorant of the political instability in Fiji.

    These recent developments are only known to those of us that are interested in “democracy” the rest haven’t a clue how it is going to affect every citizen of Fiji in the future.

    This emailed to me.

    Maybe Rabuka helped organise this coup as well and has been involved in all the coups !
    He must be so arrogant to think that he can keep getting away with treason and mutiny that he just won’t give up .
    Hopefully his days are numbered too , like Frank’s and Co.

    Rabuka is undoubtedly roped in there somehow.

    If you recall round about the time the events of 6/12 were heating up, Rabuka was also going to court for his apparent involvement with the inciting of mutiny:

    Everyone was so focussed on Bainimarama’s flexing at Qarase, meanwhile Rabuka walked.

    And let’s not forget that at the height of the tensions during Speight’s 2000 coup, Rabuka was as “ever-ready” at the then President’s side to offer advice. Ya gotta hand it to him, he will squirm his way into any strife to “help”:

    They certainly share common traits. Watch Rabuka face the media, then watch Frank. It’s like Frank is desperate to portray similar character. God’s gifts to mankind or so they both think
    God knows why – personally both make me want to puke.

    SITIVENI LIGAMAMADA RABUKA LED the delegation to the chiefly village of Viseisei to “counter” the tatau done by the ppl of Vuda in the Chiefly residence Vunisei, following Rabuka to Vuda were the FIJIAN AFFAIRS.

    bloggers take it easy on the Pres. There is more goin on behind the scenes, …..(take note).

    Why are we not surprised that Rabuka has yet again turned up, like the bad penny he is.

    He owes Frank for his freedom since Frank refused to allow the soldiers who saw Rabuka up at the camp on November 2, 2000, the day of the mutiny, to testify at the mutiny trial.

    So for now he is at the white house to “keep an eye on things” while Frank goes on with raping our country. The same decrees to abrogate the constitution in 1987 and 2000 were signed by diaper pressie last Friday. For sure Rabuka is helping on this 5th coup. Maybe Frank has offered him the Presidency once diaper pressie carks it! Or Frank is now adept at using Rabuka, having learnt his lessons after 2000… See Chodo, Bune and all other opportunists spat out after they were no longer of use. Frank is now No.1 so I bet Rabuka just prays diaper pressie doesn’t do No.2 while all those tabuas get diriki’d!

    Hey you are forgetting Rabuka got away with couping and then was voted in as PM of Fiji.

    This is the mentality of half of Fiji’s population – “it is OK to coup, gain the power with the use of the guns and govern.”

    Bainimarama has taken the easy way out – no elections for him and his cronies, they don’t have to have an election to give the people of Fiji the choice to vote them in.

    You can’t keep exposing their misdeeds or shaming them like you have been in the last 2 years. You need to educate those with this mentality and those in denial that Rabuka and those that participated in any of the coups was wrong and so very wrong.

    One suggestion is to get those that took part to admit that they were wrong in having anything to do with any of the coups.

    Unfortunately this will include some of the big names like Qarase, Fatiaki, Tuivaga etc. They need to admit that their participation in any little way was wrong and they regret it now.

    Pity we cannot bring back the dead, people like Mara and Gaunilau both Presidents of your country to admit that they should have tried harder to stop Rabuka whom you all should be detesting.

    Without this understanding by the people of Fiji you will never rid the coup culture.

    Even your constitution can’t help you – it just gets tossed out at any coup leader’s whim.

    If you are not prepared to protest on the streets – educating the people of Fiji is the next best thing.

    I was happy to be told by a 10 year Fijian boy that Bainimarama is winning and talking because of the guns! I asked him if that was the way his friends thought and he said “Yes”

    Let us hope it the next generation would have learnt something out of this foolish man.

    Fijians’ destiny is in their hands

    They either accept this as their fate or stand up and be counted. Anything less is a statement of acceptance that all is well with this dictatorship rule.

    You, the people can change it.
    And just chalk up whatever comes afterwards as the natural consequences for wanting something better for yourselves. The likes of Bainimarama is not new and there has always been just one way to rid of these types. Fiji’s is no different. We Fijians are gonna have to take back our freedom for ourselves and by whatever means necessary.

    The question is whether we do it now and minimize our sufferings

    OR

    Drag this out for 15 years.
    And then get up anyway and carry out what it is we are supposed to do now.

    Sure he said election in 2014 ?? that’s a laugh. Election is not happening. Why should he ? what’s in it for him ? A rope to fall around his neck perhaps ?

    Nope.

    There will not be election in Fiji
    Until Bainimarama has died a natural death.

    I agree with Keep the Faith. Rabuka is trying to squirm his way into power by whatever means. Rember he did that with the late Tui nayau during the George Speight coup, he pleased with Ratu Mara to make him Prime Minister or Commander of the Military. Luckily Ratu Mara told him to go and jump.
    During the mutiny at QEB Rabuka preached a sermon to the CRW soldiers before the mutiny and thend rove into the camp at its height offering himself to be appointed mediator.
    This man craves so much for the lime light that he will do anything to get it. He obviously saw a vacuum at the top, either as Vice President below Ratu Iloilo, or in the event of the Court of Appeal passing ruling against the IG Rabuka clearly wanted to be appointed as PM to replace Frank. The appointing authority would of course be the President that would be why Rabo was sniffing around Government House in that period.
    This man has been a gross failure in civilian life and was in fact facing a gaol sentence because of some of his dealings in the Companys where he served on the board or as Chairman. He is desperate to get back into power. For him its his last shot before he goes down.

    To S Viade. Vinaka vaka levu for yr clarification of Rabuka’s visit to Veiseisei. His delegation was only those from the Ministry of Fijian Affairs, an arm of Government whose portfolio comes under Frank bainimarama and whose permanent secretary is Frank’s own brother, the over 60 year old Ratu meli bainimarama. So the delegation was approved and possibly set up by Frank himself. That you say that other things are happening behind the scenes, is a welcome statement. What I hope the vanua of Vuda will think about is what will happens when the Tui Vuda passes away. When one of Vuda’s famous sons, Timoci Bavadra passed away Veiseisei was overun by thousands of well wishers of all races from all corners of Fiji. With the actions by the current Tui Vuda that were clearly forced upon him by Frank, when he passes only the people of Vuda, not the Western Chiefs, not other high chiefs of fiji, not the people of many races from throughout Fiji will be there to bury him. I am sorry to say this but that is a fact. And people like Rabuka who have used and abused the fijian traditional system who once rubbished a tabua presented to him as PM by Solomon Naqa from Monasavu saying the tabua was from the pawn shop, are now using Fijian tradition and protocol to manipulate the Vanua of Vuda. Shame on them

    Bula Vinaka S Viade – An impeccable source revealed Taukei Sawaieke said they made formal attempts to bring the Tui Vuda home as far back as 2006, well before the coup. He also named the chiefly island faction who re-buffed the attempt.

    We also know his children are banned from GH, but don’t give up hope, light can be seen at the end of the tunnel.

    I really dont know what is the purpose of the army.

    It is an institution for mad people it seems. It seems to be breeding self centered, ego-nostic-centric, dogmatic, low quality value-less, selfish, bastards who call themselves soldiers. Frank & Goons.

    I am disgusted that a once upon a time respected institution has slumped and retracted to septic gutter level conniving illegal tactics to ruin the country.

    Frank if your reading this, I wish you dead, you and all your illegal company. Mary, your wife, should be ashamed and embarrassed when you wake everyday to be married to such a pig.

    Frank is not a ‘star’ soldier . He is without anything notable to add to his name except being sent back to Fiji for non performance and being involved in illegal liquor boot-legging in the middle east.

    My Gosh , the country has wasted so much money that could have been used on development, in keeping an army of “sunukas” (thugs).

    What right has he and his coup coconuts to take over the country, no one voted you in that the bottom line.

    I, wish you dead. My business and many others like me, indigenous business owners have been ruined and close to ruin because of you.

    Why? Why? Why? Why did you do it Frank?
    I will never forgive you, I speak for everyone in business and everyone Fijian who loves this country.
    You have no right, NO RIGHT AT ALL UNDER THE EYES OF GOD!

    Your eyes are on back to front – you reckon you are taking us forward – you are actually taking us in reverse.

    I employed close to 38 people in 2005-2006. After the coup I have had to let staff go cos of the slump in revenue. Today I am struggling to keep 12 remaining.

    I dont like to at all Frank. I wish you dead. I hate YOU. Go TO HELL!!

    People, the chiefs, community leaders, social groups, businesses, churches, mataqalis, Tikinas, everyone and everybody should just say enuf is enuf and walk to government house and revolt.
    Its revolution time.
    Its time to come together as a people and being back the constitution and LAW and democracy!!!
    People rule not Military.
    Leave your homes and offices and walk- just walk into town and bind together.
    Lets do it PEOPLE – before its too late.

    @ Ropate you are most welcome!!

    For you to make such a profound statement abt the Tui Vuda is for me to conclude that you do not know Na Momo Levu and your reasoning behind that statement is political, granted the situation in Fiji right now.
    However, I promise you when the time comes you will be pleasantly surprised
    b’cos Viseisei Vilg will be over run, overflow…”into standing room only” and when that happens you might take an interest in knowing more abt a gentle, kind soul from his younger days as a teacher , senator, and so on ……
    and many, who have come to despise him, will in turn be Thankful for his presence during this tough times. Vinadu……kalougata all !!

    But tonight I went around ..
    I should have been doing that all along

    Then I will have known earlier that too many of you out there share my beliefs. I just saw Talei’s post on the other Thread too

    There are so many people who want this. It is nice to know I am not crazy. Even Graham Leung stated the same RFN. And Victor Lal also on RFN.

    Ordinary citizens on Matavuvale –now this place here I wouild visit 2x a year

    Bula Katalina,

    Yes you have been correct all the time and there are a lot of people that share the same belief that it should be the people of Fiji to fight their own battle.

    Let us hope they are beginning to realize now. The longer they wait the harder it is going to be for the nation’s future generation.

    Mr Leung had this to say;

    Fijians must fight for democracy – Leung
    April 17, 2009
    Friday, 17 April 2009 – The Australian Financial Review – James Eyers

    The rule of law in Fiji needs to be restored by Fijians and Australian lawyers looking to assist should stay at home, the former president of the Fiji Law Society and current council member of the Commonwealth Lawyers Association, Graham Leung, has warned.

    Mr Leung said the rule of law was “under siege and is being systematically undermined by the country’s military rulers daily”.

    “Ultimately, the battle to restore the rule of law must be fought and won in Fiji by ordinary Fiji citizens,” he dais from the troubled islands this week.

    “We can not expect our neighbours to bat for us if we are unwilling ourselves to stand up and reclaim our democracy. Fijians need to get out of the mindset that Canberra or Wellington or London will solve our problems”.

    He said Australia could assist “by telling lawyers looking for a bit of fame and fortune to avoid Fiji like the plague. The last thing we need are carpetbaggers and opportunistic lawyers ready to pack their bags, jump onto a plane and give comfort to military usurpers. That is not in Fiji’s interest . Keep them at home.”

    Following a judgment by Fiji’s Court of Appeal last Thursday that the 2006 coup of military leader Frank Bainimarama was illegal, President Josefa Iloilo scrapped the constitution, sacked all judges and judiciary officials and reappointed Commodore Bainimarama for five more years.

    Mr Leung said Fiji was “on the edge of a precipice and no one can predict what’s around the corner”.

    “When you have one coup, that is an aberration. But when a country experiences five coups, that is a recipe for disaster,” he said. Following the expulsion of ABC report Sean Dorney and a reporter and cameraman from New Zealand, Mr Leung said there was no evidence that the censorship of the media would cease after the press had been “muzzled into silence”.

    “The military regime is bent on ensuring that the world is prevented from following their shenanigans. It’s surprising that with their vision for building a true democracy, the country’s wannabe leaders can’t stomach criticism and freedom of expression. Obviously it tells you how little they understand about democratic values and principles”.

    When asked whether he feared for his own safety, Mr Leung said it was “always at the back of his mind that I could be summoned to the army barracks. That’s not going to stop me from calling it as I see it. I’m philosophical about the future and my own fate.”

    Yes Lusiana. The same report referenced on previous post.

    Fijians on the ground have gotta make their move.

    Non_Action is a statement of acceptance.

    Precisely what Fiji’s Thugs wish for.

    Now then for the Fijian people the Ball is really in your court — it has always been there. Bainimarama and his band of Thugs have won every step of the way thus far and will continue to win

    BECAUSE

    YOU
