Government spends millions to get Fiji’s PM over

THE invitation made by Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo for Fiji Prime Minister Commodore Frank Bainimarama as guest of honour for the country’s independence celebration has not come cheap.

Sources revealed the Government had to dig deep in the coffers to meet the expenses of getting the group here.

“It is done at the expense of tax payers,” the source said.

Asked to disclose total funds spent to get the group over, the source declined but said it has hit the millions.

“Traveling expenses and accommodation are met by the Government.”

To add to the millions, the Government before Mr Bainimarama’s arrival quickly purchased a vehicle last Friday from Kosol Cooperation.

Another source told the Solomon Star the vehicle was used to pick up Mr Bainimarama at the airport on arrival and was used in transporting him around while in Honiara, which cost the Government $300,000.

“In fact it was Kosol’s most expensive vehicle,” the source said.

A spokesperson from Kosol confirmed the purchase was made on Friday.

A complainant who tipped to the Solomon Star about the pricy invitation said the Government was spending huge money while vital services and students and teachers’ plights were ignored.

“A lot of clinics have no medicine; teachers have been crying for a fair share from the Government and USP sponsored students in Fiji are begging for their allowances.

“The Government seem to take little notice if not, no notice at all, on these aspects and prioritise its spending on things that we never heard of.”

But commenting on the visit, prominent businessman Yoshi Sato said the visit beautifully demonstrates Melanesian solidarity at its best.

  1. They should kick this idiot Lilo out ASAP and tell him to repay the money expended from his own personal money.

  2. “Fiji’s honorary consul in the Solomon Islands, Atunaisan Balekana, also described the visit as historical” …..

    Io, baleta this was the first time a real Buffoon has been so honoured in the Solomons ….

  3. I really am at a loss here. Something is going right for the Buffoon that he is treated like this by some countries. Don’t they know he is an armed robber who stole a government through a coup? He is a thug who suppresses the citizen with force. He is not the rightful PM let alone an elected representative of Fiji. I would really like to know what is their rationale is accepting a criminal with such high honors as it is one great big mystery.

  4. A undeniable case of MSG solidarity – older sibling bludging off small and poorer cousin. Embarrasing!! Heard that some soldiers fainted during parade. The biggest joke in Solomons. Fat soldiers and some malnourished ones. Bring them back home they don’t need them there to namu their taxpayers money for some silly stupid reason.

  5. Hon Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama is as much admired and loved as a hero in Fiji as he is in many of the Pacific Island Countries.

    No other Fijian PM has received so much respect and hospitality as Voreqe Bainimarama.

    The only leader in Fiji and the pacific who has popular support is Hon. Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama.

    He has made himself a saviour of the Fijian people,

    Grassroots people love him and support his ideologies for a truly multi-cultural Fiji.

    There has been many poor people who has benefitted from the policies of his government with better roads, more community engagement with government services in remote locations, write off of housing loans for many Fijians who have paid more than twice the amount borrowed from HA, new houses after cyclone destruction etc etc……- these are feats no leader in Fiji has achieved.

    There are too many achievements to list….

  6. The author of this article is portraying a very bleak picture of what is the truth.

    Thy shall know the truth and the truth will make you free from the nasties of spreading false rumours,

  7. the only dicktator you mean? not leader. kaiyum is the leader.
    if I were a dicktator, ofcourse, I would give away lots of stuff much more than this bainimagana has given away. I would pay my self more than twice this guy is getting. because I don’t have to explain where I got the money to give away from or when and how I will get the money back from them.
    and I would divide all the Fijians lands and give every indian family a house block of not less than one acre on the flat lands cos they can plant and work hard and I will send all the kaivitis to the hills so they can sit under the ivi trees and the mango trees and smoke marijuana and drink kava. and I will burn all their bibles and make turn their churches into nite clubs so they can party whole night long run by Chinese and Koreans. and I will let the Russians train the army of kai indias with some muslim kai vitis in return I will let Dere train their rugby sevens team for the world cup. and I will make anyone over 45 except me and my friends redundant and pay them half of their fnpf entitlements. and I will make all my children, their friends, my friends and my friends friends heads and ceos of all public and private companies. and I will make all foreign companies pay more tax than the profits they make. and I will not only make the old politicians disclose all theirs and their childrens, dead or alive, assets but make them pay me 10% like the churches ask from their members. and I will promise them elections in 2014 and then extend every 5 years until my son takes over.
