Illegal Regime Leaders and Supporters Enjoy Perks

Sai's Comments:

  • Does it not make one sick to see illegally appointed people enjoying the perks of working in Government?
  • This is another example of wasteful expenditure by those who only got to power through illegal means. No doubt the glee in their faces and conversation during such a trip knowing how they have got to where they are and seeing others who were legally mandated to rule being shafted into obsecurity in Fiji.
  • Remember the statement from Voreqe that "no military personnel will benefit from the coup".
  • What has Ului Mara or Band Boy Leweni and their wives doing joining such a trip? This is exactly the type of corruptive behaviour and wasteful use of tax payers' money Voreqe had vowed to eradicate in carrying out his coup.
  • Then again, we all know now, that was all a sham, so he clearly wants to enjoy all his ill-gotten perks while it lasts. And while he is at it, to ensure all his mates and their wives have a bar of the fun too.
  • Enjoy it while it last Voreqe because sooner or later your time will come!

PM leads way to Hong Kong

www.fijisun.com.fj - 12 November 2009

Air Pacific's official inaugural flight to Hong Kong left yesterday with VIP guests aboard and colourful ceremonies on the ground.

The start of the service was launched with a special ceremony with the Nadi International Airport departure terminal draped in red and gold - the colours of the Orient, with ballons and a fiery dragon with Chinese umbrellas on display.

Passengers at the check in counters were entertained by a Fijian band.

Passengers were also garlanded at Gate 9 before they boarded flight FJ391 at 8:30am.

Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama led a Government delegation on the flight.

He was accompanied by his wife, Mary and other senior Government officials including Defence Minister, Ratu Epeli Ganilau and Adi Ateca Ganilau, permanent secretary for information, Lt-Col Neumi Leweni and Mrs Leweni and Col Ratu Tevita Uluilakeba and Mrs Uluilakeba.

Air Pacific was represented by its board chairman, Nalin Patel, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, John Campbell, and Air Pacific General Manager Corporate Services, Josephine Yee.

Mr Patel said the occasion marked the dawn of a new era in the history of aviation links between Fiji and Hong Kong.

"This is history in the making given the bilateral relationship.

"At the moment, the whole aviation industry has a very turbulent future.

"We are confident and that is why we have started with two flights and hopefully if the number does come on we will demand a third one.

"It’s no secret that there will be losses in any new route.

“We are monitoring that closely," adds Mr PatelComments posted on coupfourpointfive:

So old dreamy kava eyes gets a board job at Fiji TV? Funny how it comes straight off the back of the television license spill. Guess which company is now safe? Vinaka, vinaka!

The Lt Col knows nothing about television and nothing about running a business. Brilliant appointment!

Can anyone explain to me how this guy has come so far when he perpetually looks like he's just got up from the yaqona bowl? He wanders around Suva looking so dopey and is so inept in his public statements that you wonder what Frank sees in him. Now he gets to formally decide what happens not just at Fiji TV but its two companies in PNG, Media Niugini and EM TV. I notice in today's paper that he and his wife joined Frank and Mary plus Epeli Ganilau and Tevita Mara and their respective spouses on Air Pacific's inaugural flight to Hong Kong. So he's right up there in the current hierarchy. It can't be just because he laughs at all of Frank jokes, surely? Can anyone out there explain how the humble drummer boy wound up outranking the drum major? Sure beats me
