NFP Leader, Party ‘do not condone use of word curse by Qereqeretabua’
National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad says neither he nor the party condone the use of the word “cursed” in a recent post by an NFP Parliamentarian Lenora Qereqeretabua.
It is understood that Ms Qereqeretabua had written on her Facebook post attacking FijiFirst MPs.
Ms Qereqeretabua had written on Facebook “that the person who shot the video of the Prime Minister of Fiji physically assaulting a member of the Opposition was yesterday told to tender his resignation. He worked for the Parliament of Fiji”.
She wrote “FijiFirst MPs you have deprived an honest man his livelihood because he chose right and justice. He is the sole breadwinner of his family supporting his mother. But your dictatorial leaders said he should suffer for his honesty.”
Ms Qereqeretabua wrote, “may you; Alex, Mereseini, Inia, Semi, Selai, Ashneel, Jone, Alipate, Osea, Voreqe, Rohit, Mahen, Praveen, Veena, Alvick, Rosy, Aiyaz, Ifereimi and all in your cohort and your descendants forever be cursed for your choices”.
Professor Prasad said that “he was notified of the post. “She (Lenora Qereqeretabua) has realised that this is not what she should have written and it took it out of her post,” Professor Prasad said.
The Member of Parliament has since edited her post. The National Federation Party has not revealed whether any action will be taken against Ms Qereqeretabua.
