Schools under investigation
It comes as no surprise that schools are now under investigation by Fiji Independent Commission Against Corruption (FICAC) for financial misuse (FS: 07/09).
I believe such corrupt practices are rife especially that Government is now subsidising free education.
This was to be expected following FijiFirst’s free education policy.
It’s one thing to hand out funds but it’s a great deal more challenging to monitor the proper management of these funds at all schools Fiji wide. Obviously this issue is caused by a weak financial management system. Those under investigation must immediately be removed from the schools until investigations are complete and if found guilty they must be charged heavily. These corrupt people are simply the enemy of our development and of good governance. This must be dealt with and gotten rid of fast!
