  1. Fiji’s first Major General can only be good for Fiji and its people, I just hope he awards himself a decent pay raise in keeping with his rank.

    The people of Fiji owes you big time frank and its time to collect.

  2. The promotion is specifically for his ” Rear ” which soon will be welcomed by marbles in his Naboro palace.

  3. Goodness only knows what the purpose of this latest stunt is. Whatever it is, it will be self-serving.

    Perhaps Bainimarama is angling to go down in the Guinness Book of World Records as the first Rear Admiral in the southern hemisphere to ever land jail time?

  4. I am reminded here once again of the wise words of the Lebanese philosopher-poet Kahlil Gibran who said in a world so condition ( as Fiji is under a coup installed regime) success is gained by the sacrifice of conscience and honour.The man of integrity is reviled and the liar admired and rewarded with titles and possessions.
    Now I hope Gibran’s wise words will provide a good guide on where the rewards are coming from in contemporary Fiji society.

  5. Psalm 62 verses 9-12 says that wealth, honor, power or prestige add nothing to our value in GOD’s eyes , only the faithful work we do for Him has eternal value.

    Repent our sins , believe in Jesus and be saved , then do all good works to benefit all citizens of Fiji and the world.

    The crooks, thieves, and sinners will end up in Hell

  6. Congratulations PM! Just another nice feather in your cap, and a well deserved one. A man who can move effortlessly over difficult agricultural terrain, a man who is the first politician who keeps his premises is a good rear

  7. Its just another way of stealing more money from the tax payers! He promoted himself, gives himself a pay rise for the new post and civil servants facilitate it without asking questions because they have also been given a pay rise. Its all in that culture of ransacking the public purse!
