Parade marks special day for police chief

By SHALVEEN CHAND
Friday, July 18, 2014

Update: 2:34PM POLICE Commissioner Ben Groenewald told police officers in the second quarter parade this morning that today was a special day for him.

It was his first parade with his troops, today marked his fathers birthday and today was the day when President Nelson Mandela was born.

"What Nelson Mandela has done to the democratic changes in Soutrh Africa is indescribable. He brought together a diverse community to become one nation, to what we call the Rainbow Nation. We the Fijian public and the Fijian police can learn from this to better whatever we can offer," he said.

Mr Mandela was born on July 18, 1918 and died last year.
