Cabbies elect new president

MOHAMMED Hafiz of Nadi has become the first Westerner to be elected Fiji Taxi Associations president.

Mr Hafiz's name was one of two nominated for the post and he won by a landslide.

Back in the fold of things is Rishi Ram as general secretary. Mr Ram was suspended following allegations of misuse of office, however, with no police action so far, he was reinstated. Sunil Kumar was voted in as treasurer.

Mr Hafiz said the first thing he intended to do was to get the association in order.

"Members were behaving like there was no structure during the voting. People were shouting from all ends," he said.

"I will ensure I put a stop to such rowdiness. I will ensure we behave like professionals."
