Celebratio­n of Fiji Day


I BELIEVE there is a budget of $250,000 allocated for this year’s Fiji’s 50th Independen­ce Day Celebratio­n. Given the pandemic, it’s only proper that we postpone this national event to 2021 or 2022 just like the deferment of the Tokyo Olympics.

Allocated budget can be given to our Ministry of Women, Social Welfare and Poverty Alleviatio­n to raise more awareness on issues affecting our women and girls including rape in Fiji or a national forum where all stakeholde­rs meet under one platform.

This is long overdue, or do we sit and wait to see more killing of young women and girls by the end of 2020? JIOJI MASIVESI CAKACAKA Tadra- Votualevu, Nadi
