Bainimarama’s land lie

Bainimarama’s latest statement on land again raises the question: is this man stupid or is he resorting to a desperate lie?

In a Fiji Sun report, which is in effect an official regime statement, he said “if a change in the iTaukei land legislation is proposed in Parliament it has to be passed by three-quarters of the members”.

This is a blatant lie. He has quoted the provisions of his draft constitution about the changing of the constitution. What he didn’t say was that there was no mention of iTaukei land in the draft constitution.

If a future Parliament wanted to re-introduce the protections of the Native Land Trust Act they would need a three-quarters majority to do it – almost impossible, not to mention the further requirement of a three-quarters majority in a referendum.

Bainimarama has already abolished the substance of the Native Land Trust Act. His Land Use Decree over-rides the NLTA to give him complete power over all Native land.

Why has Bainimarama claimed that his draft Constitution protects Fijian land, when it doesn’t mention it? Is he unaware that his illegal Attorney General, when his back was against the wall in a public meeting, has already admitted that there might need to be specific mention of iTaukei land?

The answer to this puzzle is probably that Bainimarama repeats whatever line Sayed-Khaiyum gives him.

  1. Bainimamrama and Aiyarse are big time liars. they know very well that there is no provisions for the Itaukei Land Rights in their new constitution. they Keep coming up with lies and more lies.

  2. They lie, cheat and lie again – all to remain in their position of nothingness.

    The RFMF are not the protecting the people of Fiji – they protect their own jobs.

    It is time to rise up against the lazy and stupid.

  3. The problem with Bainivuaka is he is so dumb. Aiyarse will run rings around him every day of the week. Just look at the radio interview where Bainivuaka ducks a question from a listener…as soon as he heard more than single syllable words in the question he waved it away because he doesn’t have the brains to understand the question let alone answer it. Whenever Khaiyum speaks to Vore, the pig is like one of those dashboard ornaments whose empty heads nod all day long.

  4. @Talai ni ASK

    You say I’m “economical with the truth”. Are you aware that this means telling the truth but not the whole truth!

    I have just accused Bainimarama of telling blatant lies, which means you think this is true but not the whole truth. So what is the whole truth?

    Anon invited you to tell us more, so please, carry on.

  5. Talai sounds like that salulu maga sharon smith johns, the PS misinformation!
