Bainimarama: There is no threat to iTaukei land

By SHALVEEN CHAND
Wednesday, July 09, 2014

Update: 3:00PM PRIME Minister Rear Admiral (Retired) Voreqe Bainimarama has labelled talks of land and Christianity by political parties as propaganda and lies.

He made the comments while addressing people of Navuso on Tuesday.

"They have accused me a fellow iTaukei of weakening the protection of iTaukei land and of weakening the position of the Christian churches in Fiji. On both counts, these are lies. They are simply not true and let me explain why," he said.

"There is no threat to iTaukei land. None. You don't have to take my word for this. You can read it for yourself in our Constitution, which we translated into i'Taukei for the first time so you can all understand it."
