Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama is warning landowners to guard themselves against the lies told by SODELPA in regards to traditional land issues.

Bainimarama made the statement on a Radio Talk Back Show on Radio Fiji One yesterday

Apisalome Coka reports.

The statement made by the Social Democratic Party of its intention to give more land lease money to chiefs and less to commoners has been labelled as a dirty tactic by the Prime Minister.

This is issue is just about trying to bring in our chiefs to support their political parties and bringing in church ministers to support their political party, but i want to let SODELPA know, they have just missed the bus, the church has confirmed to the people, they will never be involved in politics again, i don’t think any church minister will fall for them this time around.

Bainimarama says SODELPA wants to review the distribution of money and gives chiefs more as was the practice before.

Money does not make anyone a chief, Chiefs look after their people, that is why they become chiefs, butSODELPA has revealed they do not want equal distribution, they want lease money paid to the poor to return to the chiefs, to them it makes them a chief.

He says SODELPA with the support of the Fiji Labor Party and the National Federation party now wants landowners to be involved in the running of the board

SODELPA wants landowners to run the iTLTB board, people should be very careful on this move, my government as we all know have stopped the purchase of Native land and that has become a law, because theSDL government brought Native Land and made it freehold land, landowners be careful you might lose your land again if they come in and change what has been implemented

Bainimarama says SODELPA, FLP, and NFP are talking about the iTLTB because they want to get their hands on the millions of dollars that iTLTB has saved up under his leadership.

  1. Useless topic – focus on the real issue like the changes on land rights and ownership as stipulated under the new constitution. Sooner or later people will have no money to share. SODELPA needs to wake up as well and reform to suit the demands of the bulk of a growing well educated and economically independent I-taukei’s. We cant live in the same rhetoric of the past, becasue even in villages – they demand and prefer to have tv’s, mobile phones and the internet. we cant have access to these and live subsistently 100% ofo ur time. It would be to our demise to do that.

  2. How convenient when the dikhead himself wants to be called Ratu (he who is a bakola) , and who has undeclared assets and millions of dollars tucked away stolen from the people of this land and various funds he set up to “help’ (himself). His problem is he thinks the vanua is dumb and has no eyes and ears.

    One day Mafatu !

  3. Tuisawau The “privileged elite” here IS YOU AND YOUR MINISTERS & YOUR FAMILIES! Look at all the SDL Ministers you accused of CORRUPTION, did anyone build a 3 story house for their daughter? or through his connections, their daughters bought a huge house, or expensive SUV’s? or go on overseas trips with their families to watch games? NO ONE DID THAT! So think of it, you are the one who is mis-using tax payers money!SO YOU ARE THE PRIVILEGED ELITE here Frank! YOU AND YOUR FAMILY! Look in the mirror!
