Why we left Fiji af­ter 1987

Fiji Sun - - Comment -

Our fam­ily left Fiji af­ter 1987 be­cause my fa­ther was in a pro­fes­sion where he was dead against what Si­tiveni Raluca had done. But be­fore we left, we saw how this coun­try was torn apart. We have seen the many good things which has hap­pened in Fiji in the past few years and at one stage we were think­ing of com­ing back and in­vest­ing in Fiji but af­ter hear­ing SODELPA politi­cians like Niko Nawaikula go on and on and on in Par­lia­ment and not con­tribut­ing con­struc­tively in any way, I have given up the thought of re­tir­ing in Fiji.

There were iTaukeis who were too dis­gusted to stay in Fiji af­ter see­ing fel­low iTaukei ter­ror­is­ing an­other eth­nic group. Not all of us were in favour of it. We still do not be­lieve that the iTaukei have any­thing to fear or worry about in terms of their se­cu­rity and fu­ture.

Be mind­ful of false prophets my brothers and sis­ters, do not be swayed.
