Rabuka sacked

SITIVENI Rabuka claims he was sacked by executives of the Social Democratic Liberal Party because of a move initiated by the party's women and youth wing.

Mr Rabuka said the women and the youth were not happy with his role in the 1987 coup.

"They were not happy with my role in the coup 27 years ago. They went to the party leader with their complaints and at 11am yesterday (Wednesday), I was told to go," he said.

"Just like that I was sacked. But I have no ill feelings towards anybody. The women are the pillars of our society and the youths are the future.

"So it was only right for me to adhere to the demands they had."

In a statement issued on Wednesday, SODELPA said Mr Rabuka was no longer with the party.

Responding to claims by Mr Rabuka, SODELPA said yesterday it was unable to respond to claims by Mr Rabuka because they were unaware of the issues raised by him.

SODELPA said the selection process of its candidates had not been finalised yet.

Mr Rabuka is now focusing away from politics.
