Kean was brought back under the yellow ribbon campaign – Bainimarama
Voreqe Banimarama speaking at the Fiji First campaign meeting in Kalabu
FijiFirst leader, Voreqe Banimarama has made it clear that he had nothing to do in bringing back Francis Kean as a civil servant.
Bainimarama made this statement at the Fiji First campaign meeting in Kalabu.
The issue was brought up when Bainimarama was asked a question by a member of the community on how it is possible for a person who was charged and convicted to work in the civil service.
Bainimarama then replied that he knows that the question was being asked because Kean is his brother-in-law.
However the FijiFirst Leader said that he was not involved in anything concerning Kean’s appointment and he came back because of the Yellow Ribbon Project.
Bainimarama then shared his experience of being given a chance to join the Navy in 1975.
He said a lot of inmates are in need of a second chance to succeed in life.
Meanwhile, Bainimarama has also revealed that the FijiFirst Party will announce its first list of proposed candidates in the next few days.
