'It's time for a cleansing exercise'

Wednesday, December 06, 2006

The Kadavu Provincial Council says the cleansing exercise by the military may actually help rid the country of the coup culture once and for all.

Chairman Ratu Josateki Nawalowalo said the present impasse between the military and the Government could have been solved a long time ago had the Government distanced itself from those who were involved in the coup of 2000.

He said he was leading a group who were willing to mediate between the Government and the military when differences surfaced and was also privately advising the chairman of the Great Council of Chiefs Ratu Ovini Bokini but somehow other people got involved in this.

"It has probably gotten to a point where the commander has said enough is enough but as the chairman of the Kadavu Provincial Council and leader of the mediation group, I could see a way through in resolving the issues impartially."

"We could see what the commander was saying but perhaps the time has come for a cleansing exercise," he said.
