Seven cat­tle, sev­eral pigs, chick­ens and fish have been used to feed more than 100 del­e­gates to the Lo­maiv­iti Pro­vin­cial Coun­cil meet­ing at Sawaieke, Gau this week.

The meet­ing ends to­day but del­e­gates have been over­whelmed by the hos­pi­tal­ity of the hosts. Maika Bo­latiki, the Fiji

Sun jour­nal­ist at the meet­ing, said the sev­enth cat­tle had been slaugh­tered.

“It’s hard to count the num­ber of pigs and chick­ens plus the amount of fish. It was in­cred­i­ble.”


Peo­ple of Gau want a tower at Sawaieke to en­hance com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

This was brought up at a

ta­lanoa ses­sion with the Prime Min­is­ter, Voreqe Bain­i­marama yes­ter­day.

The peo­ple say com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the out­side world is dif­fi­cult at times be­cause of poor re­cep­tion.


A lead­ing su­per­mar­ket has taken an ex­tra step to get hold of peo­ple who walk out of the premises with items with­out pay­ing for them.

The shoplifter­s may have gone past the se­cu­rity of­fi­cers and cashiers with­out pay­ing for some items but they for­got about the cam­eras in­side the su­per­mar­ket.

BTL is aware that at least seven peo­ple were caught on cam­eras in­side the su­per­mar­ket picking items and walk­ing out with­out pay­ing for them.


There was an un­planned power out­age at 4:42pm yes­ter­day in Sa­beto, Nadi and its sur­round­ing ar­eas.

This was due to a 10-wheeler truck pass­ing through over­head EFL power lines with its tray tip pro­trud­ing out and bring­ing down the power lines and cross arms. The in­ci­dent caused a power out­age af­fect­ing sup­ply of elec­tric­ity in Sa­beto and Waima­lika ar­eas. EFL teams were re­pair­ing the fallen power lines last night, hop­ing to re­store power this morn­ing.
