Frankly Absurd!

July 28, 2009
It is easy to see why the dictator and those stupid enough to serve him went this far and disgracefully arrested the noble people of our country.
If they didn’t show any power of an illegal opposition, Rewa would have been flooded with not just the Methodist people, but the whole of Fiji. Money was received from overseas relatives to help us attend the Bose Ko Viti from when it began until it ended. This would have been the first act of defiance and with the thousands in Rewa the world would have seen how unpopular Frank’s Military Regime is and that they only had a very few supporters.
All we can say is “Thank God We Have All The Smart, Caring and Thoughtful Chiefs and Frank has the no money, stupid Ones.” The chiefs we have, value our customs and traditions and we strongly believe they will strive to make sure it is there for future generations.
Here speaks one of our smart chiefs and we quote from his book; “Traditional leadership can help strengthen democracy by encouraging the indigenous Fijian people to adopt a more realistic approach to their traditional and customary obligations.” ( Which we have ) Chiefs and elders may suggest that a more modest discharge of these duties would be better suited to circumstances.” ( In the 21st century our chiefs do understand and have always suggested ways of cutting cost. ) “Tradition will continue so long as there is a useful place for it in one’s life.” ( Our chiefly system is who we are and we don’t need an unheard of commoner, only known to us after he couped telling us how it is important to change this and that so all the races can live together happily. )
He has more to say; “Traditional leadership and democracy make uneasy but not hostile bedfellows. There continues to be a place for tradition within our evolving democracy. So long as the Fijian people see in it a structure that is essential to their identity and their well-being, its future will be assured. By the same token, traditional leaders will have to demonstrate their capacity to be relevant. they will also need to be more open to public scrutiny, both from their own people and the wider community. Moreover, they will have to create for themselves space in the system of governance that reflects the popular will. This they can do by demonstrating to the country at large, that mutual respect, compassion and tolerance are the essence of the traditional system.
Ro Teimumu as our high chief, a politician, a loving mother, a catholic and a caring smart lady of class knows this and is doing the above for not only her people of Rewa but for the people of Fiji. We will not or are prepared to listen or obey what we class as Frank’s made up rules in our birth country.
Don’t let them stop us! Through the blogs we can be organised and people can gather else where if the lamu lamu soldiers are ordered to close off the entrance to Lomanikoro. Have many different places where people can attend even for a picnic and to sing hymns but please keep fighting back and don’t make it easy for these Bullies because that is all they are school boy Bullies.

    Folks…a new exposure on Intelly

    The line in the sand has been drawn !
    The question is really for Frank, not the Methodist Church as such.
    Will he be stupid or brave enough to cross it ?
    The Methodist Conference was about religious faith, but thanks to Frank’s meddling into Church matters and muddying the waters in regards to the separation of Church and State as in the separation of powers, he has now drawn himself into direct conflict with not only the Methodist congregation, the indigenous Fijians, but with everyone and anyone, including the Paramount Chiefs.
    So, the very thing he was trying to avoid, he has himself, created !
    I sincerely hope and pray that the Conference goes ahead, as it must now !

    Saw the posting below on Intelligentsy and would like to know if this is true. if so, I wonder if he did resign or was told to move on as this is the plan right from the begining. i am sure Koila is behind it 100%.

    President Retires
    Publish date/time: 28/07/2009 [17:13]

    The President, Ratu Josefa Iloilo has announced his retirement from his position.

    Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama has made the announcement after visiting the President earlier today.

    Vice President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau will act as Fiji’s President until the substantive appointment is made.

    Commodore Bainimarama said cabinet will advice the Chief Justice about the new appointment.

    Rumor has it that Ratu Iloilo DID NOT want to sign a declaration (Decree?) stating that the New Methodist to be the ONLY state approved religion for Fiji. Every other religion to be declared illegal ! TOO LATE THE HERO for our ex-presidante.

    Sounds incredible ? We’re living in the end of times. Beware that you do not compromise your belief or you may find yourself excluded from the Book of Life.

    Do not fear men, ONLY fear GOD !

    Does this mean that only the standard missionary position will be allowed in love making, as prescribed by Atu and his dear wife?
    I believe the woman is no allowed to be on top, and the police will be there to make sure.

    Now with the Tui Vuda leaving the President’s seat, the people of Vuda and other districts and provinces with traditional ties to Vuda can breath a sigh of relief because there will no more be any obligation for them to support him as head of this illegal government.

    Rt. Iloilo is a stout believer in the principles of the Methodist Church and a supporter of its leaders. And he is a very religious individual.

    However, I don’t know about Rt. Momoedonu, Rt. Iloilo’s spokesman.

    The support of this illegal government from the people of the west will certainly diminish now that he is resigning.

    If the President was aware enough to refuse to sign a decree based on his personal beliefs, does that suggest that he has in fact always been aware and if that is the case, does that make him guilty of high Treason like Frank and Co.
    Another possibly is that he actually has moments of awareness, and that could explain his contradictory behaviour in supporting/ not supporting, Frank’s illegal Regime at different times.
    Speaking of Frank, if the rumours are correct that he is receiving $500,000 a year, then that would be $9,615.38c a week.
    Assuming he was originally making $280 per week, then Frank is now receiving 34.34 times what he used to make !
    How much, all the other Soldiers should be asking, has their pay gone up in the same period ?

    That kind of pay you should only see in big coporation that are churning out millions of dollars in profit year in uyear out or governments that are “stable” economically. I hope the army officers cum policeman who are now running around picking preople up from their homes to take them to police cells should ask themselves if what they are getting paid for is worth it while the one giving orders – who had nothing but only guns is getting such amounts.
