I would contend it is the Fiji military rather than the Fiji police that is in need of an expatriate leader.

Editor,

I have no doubt the new police commissioner, the South African Major General (Ret) Ben Groenewald, is the “best man for [the job]” (Fiji Sun 2/5).
With his outstanding accomplishments in South Africa he should have no problem in handling the demands of the job in Fiji.
What I can’t understand is how come the Fiji police needs an expatriate commissioner and the army does not need an expatriate commander?
I would have thought it is the Fiji military that is in need of further leadership guidance in light of the failure of the local leadership to keep it on a proper professional footing.
The Fiji military’s role in the coups in the country shows it lacks the professional discipline one associates with the military in a democratic state.
I would contend it is the Fiji military rather than the Fiji police that is in need of an expatriate leader.
sincerely,
Rajend Naidu

  1. Are bakewa Rajend

    As an aust citizen and a strong FLP sapota, you may wish stop your stinking comments.

    Talk about australia pls.

    We don’t need people who have no alligance to fiji to bark.

  2. What a nonsense Rajend proposes. Fiji’s problems is the military, the entire bunch of generals and colonels with little of no brains and overblown egos. What Fiji needs is to get rid of this cancer altogether otherwise the coup/dictatorship cycle will never be broken. Having said that, I believe that the new expatriate commissioner will introduce an interesting dynamic. There are two options: a) he is a honourable professional and will very soon fall out with the thugs and follow Prof Ghai, b) he is in for money and he will follow Gates, Pryde and Smith Jones.

  3. If he is a honest man with integrity he will be lucky to last five minutes. If he is corruptible and dishonest he will be right at home.

  4. Rajend does have a point. With most of the leadership and heads taken over by white overseas expatriates it would make sense if another one is appointed to lead the military. This will definitely eliminate the liu muri and immoral culture in this powerful and virulent institution.

  5. This new junta commissioner is in it for the money – to supplement his meagre pension. He will be like bhaini-the-ghoose and do whatever khaiyum tells him to do.

  6. A South African is a good choice. He would know about racism, corruption and the desire of indigenous leaders to fill their bank accounts.

  7. Excellent thought Rajend but I would go one step further I would contend get an expatriate leader to oversee the abolishment or of Fiji’s military, only then we will rid ourselves with the source of all our suffering, economic pain and insecurity.
