A duty to play

“THE responsibility for this country does not lie in the hands of a privileged few.” This is the opinion shared by 48-year-old Orisi Somumu after casting his vote in Nausori on Wednesday.
Fiji, he said, should be free from any form of trouble if everyone remembered their duty as citizens.
After casting his vote, Mr Somumu rushed back to his home in Nausori to help his wife sell their produce at the market.
He said voting was just a small percentage of the people’s role, the rest depended on the individuals on how they would work towards a better tomorrow.
The Vanua Levu man said today, “life goes on” as the nation awaited the result in the next few days.
“We as citizens need to realise that we have a duty to play if we have to live in a nation that is free from violence, discrimination and hatred,” Mr Somumu said.
“Whether it’s a pothole, water problem – speak up, demand the answers and uphold your roles as citizens.”
