THE owner of Island Buses Limited, Vijendra Kewal, has clarified that Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama has hired one of his buses to campaign for the election.

Mr Kewal said Rear Admiral Bainimarama was paying the company for hiring the bus although he refused to disclose the cost.

"The bus is only hired by him — he has charted the bus. The charge, I cannot disclose. Certain customers are treated with confidentiality," he said.

Mr Kewal confirmed the bus had been charted for five days — three days on Viti Levu and two days on Vanua Levu.

"But it might be kept for long as he might not be able to fulfil his commitments in two or three days, so he can use it for another three days.

"The PM can keep the bus as long as I get my money."

He said the paint on the bus would change after the PM returned the bus.

Rear Admiral Bainimarama launched the campaign bus at the My Suva Picnic Park last Sunday after launching the name of his proposed political party — Fiji First.
