Like his announcement that Mosese Tikoitoga will be the new army chief, Frank Bainimarama has again taken to the airwaves to announce that the next Police Commissioner will be a South African. Is it General John George Fivaz, who was South African Police Commissioner from 1995 to 2000. He was appointed by the late president Nelson Mandela. Fivaz joined the police force in 1964 and holds a BAdmin degree, which he obtained from the University of the Orange Free State in 1976. In 2000 he stepped down to make way for a first black police commissioner. Fivaz has been running a private investigation firm.
The locals for the job were Ravi Narayan, Rusiate Tudravu and Mohammed Aziz. Sources at Police Headquarters say Aziz was dropped after his appointment had been leaked out. So locals fit only to police the streets of Fiji?
