THE headman of Keiyasi Village, Apisai Namata, has told the Constitution Commission the villagers support the government initiative to introduce casinos in Fiji.
Mr Namata said casinos would earn Fiji money which would mean more development for the country.
Human rights was another subject Mr Namata spoke about, stressing to the commission that human rights should not be introduced in villages.
He stressed that human rights should not be inconsistent with the village system.
Mr Namata also told the commission a new constitution should not permit same sex marriages. He also called for Navosa to be separated from Nadroga Province and be declared the country's 15th province.
Navosa, he said, has 12 tikina and also hosted the government station, so it could easily be declared a province.
Fellow villager Josese Laliqavota suggested the new constitution should include a piece on coups — it must be clearly written in the new document that there are to be no more coups in Fiji.
Mr Laliqavota said there were three reasons for the coups — power hungry people, poverty and people without virtues.
Another villager, Adi Vulori Mumukawa, submitted that education should be free from primary school to tertiary level.
