There is no MUST

The political parties must, during their political campaign, leave the Republic of Fiji Miliatry Force alone. RFMF Commander Brigadier-General Mosese Tikoitoga reiterated that the RFMF was apolitical. ‘‘They should be rest assured that under my command the RFMF would obey, defend and protect the constitution,’’ he said.
He had already made this clear to journalists this week. He was appointed to lead the RFMF in place of Commodore (Ret.) Voreqe Bainimarama who stood down to contest in the national elections. “We will of course, also continue to defend and protect our nation, assist its people and contribute to a better world through our peacekeeping efforts with the United Nations.”
The RFMF plans not to be involved in preparations for the elections.

  1. thats a good sign – we will take your word for it!. Curiosly though, which version of the constitution is he referring to?

  2. Tikoitoga is a joke – How can he claim the military is a-political when it is protecting a constitution that gives immunity to treasonous criminals and power to the military to overthrow any government it does not like?

  3. Saione, try turning to the page where the role of the RFMF is defined. Also take not that the RFMF will defend and protect the Constitution including its people.

    In other words, if Labour wiins and attempts to throw away this Constitution, what do you think will happen. Exactly, like that famous saying before the Dec 2006 Clean Up Campaign, there are more than 11 ways to skin a cat….

  4. Does this military khaiyum ‘yes man’ mean the real constitution (which he and other treasonous criminals raped) or the scam constitution imposed on the people by the illegal regime, and which gives him immunity for his crimes against the nation? This yes man has no integrity, principles or courage.

  5. Thicko, Thicko, Thicko. The RFMF will forever be targeted by political parties and civilians alike because the institution which was supposed to uphold the 1997 constitution and its Commander In Chief was duped by Bainimarama and his inner circle into contracting selective amnesia.

    Only until the institution of the RFMF can become self-sustaining and pay all of their own bills will they escape criticism. Thus the only option here Thicko is to suck it in and STFU — how’s that for a revised ‘must do’?

  6. The Military is under the control of Government. If Govt elected by the people decides its for the best of the country to downsize the army. reduce its personnel budget or even abolish the Military, the decision is regarded as the peoples’ decision and the Military must follow. That is democracy, and most of us citizens want to get back the rule of our country through the ballot box.

    Military like all other institutions paid for by Taxpayers money listen to and obey the rule of a democratic Govt otherwise we will continue to have a military run country..counter to all logic. NO WE WILL NOT ALLOW THAT.

    During election people and political parties must have the right to voice all opinions agtainst or for the Miltary just like any opinions on any Govt institution. If people and political parties want to change the imposed constitution the election campaign period is good time to freely air and campaign for opinions on any subject subject to reasons, logic, civility and accepted behavious. Mosese and his organisation cannot avoid being on the firing line if people want to do so…its part of free elction, freedom of expression, citizens’ legitimate rights of free expression…Mosese must grow up and grow thick skin if he wants to commend the Military which should be under peoples’ control through their elected Govt.

  7. Isn’t it a free world where we can say whatever as long as it is not against the law. So what law says that we cannot say anything about the army. So the primary role is to protect the constitution. Why the emphasis is on the constitution first, I guess it is more the imperative as it protects them from being charged for the wrongs they commited. And when a government is established after election it is that government that should have oversight over the army. The army should not be an institution running on its own as it has done and caused Fiji many years of instability and misery.

  8. The same people who abrogated the 1997 Constitution which is the peoples constitution are now vowing to protect their own. What a bunch of hypocrite as holes.

  9. The Fijian Military is ” apolitical” according to this new idiot commander of the RFMF.
    When did it become “apolitical”?
    We – the people of Fiji – did not notice it becoming ” apolitical”
    And for very good reason : The Fijian Military is NOT apolitical.
    It is a puppet of the Bainimarama dictatorship.
    It is there ONLY to protect the dictator and his cronies.
    All the talk about protecting the constitution – the one foisted on the people of Fiji by the regime – has a hidden agenda : to protect the immunity from prosecution provision in the constitution.

  10. Amazing.

    They won’t protect the nation or the constitution when they needed to, but now that Emperor Frank is trying to be legitimate, the RFMF want to pretend that they are protecting the consitution?

    What a joke.

  11. Dum Fuk, when the new govt throws out this rubbish constitution and puts in a new one, will you follow that? rfmf wouldn’t know the difference between toilet paper and the constitution, just only protecting own interests, they are just a bunch of puppets being led by the local taliban clan.

  12. I think the admin of this web page is really working hard in favor of his website, since here every data is quality based information.
