Bau chief dubs overseas Fijians slamming Bai ‘losers’

August 28, 2015

More than 100 armed soldiers yesterday patrolled Tavua town as some 30 villagers from Ra made a second court appearance over charges of sedition and urging political violence.

Today the chief of Bau, Ratu George Kadavulevu Cakobau (Junior) has told Fijians living overseas to “not open their mouths” about how Fiji is governed.

Ratu George told the Fiji Sun, “Fijians living overseas criticising Bainimarama’s leadership are losers”. He was reacting to support being apparently given by Fijians in Australia to the Ra accused of sedition.

He called on all Fijians to support the Bainimarama led government.

Who is this Ratu George Cakobau Jr. you ask?

Also known as Ratu Jioji Cakobau, Ratu George Cakobau, Jr. is the son of the late Governor-General, Ratu Sir George Cakobau  who was also the Vunivalu of Bau (widely considered to be Fiji’s most senior chiefly position) and the late Adi Samanunu Cakobau.

The title of Vunivalu of Bau was left vacant since the death of his father in 1989, owing to disagreements over the succession.

Ratu George fought with his younger brother over the title and usurped the title in January this year.

This is the first time we’ve seen him publicly supporting Baininarama and sticking his nose in politics and wonder if he has some knowledge of the missing $100 million.

So should Fijians living overseas ‘shut their mouths’ about what’s happening in Fiji?
What do you think?
Note: If you ask me, No. Every Fijian wherever in the world they are have a right to voice their concerns on matters of national interests. They should not be silenced or threatened in any way for voicing an honest opinion.
