  1. going for cheap Fiji Tourism deals and getting more than you bargained for.
    you lot got bitten by mosquitoes
    Some Fijian people got beaten by the military that is suppose to be protecting them,
    who should I feel sorry for?

  2. Another major fail by Shazza & QorVice to cover up the inevitable.

    Not one peep out of Dixon Seeto to lambast the lax authorities that are impacting his sector? What a colossal joke.

  3. Tourist avoid travelling to Fiji. The country is cursed by the illegal regime suppression of it’s people.

    Such things does happen when common people are mistreated by regime.

    Never had this been a problem in the history of Fiji.

  4. I work at CWM and many deaths of dengue has occurred but the Minister has said only 12 which is totally wrong.

  5. Fiji’s Healthy Toady Health Minister is a liar just like the others in the Bainimarama regime.
