Political world

I believe politics only benefits politicians and their immediate families, nobody else. I believe this was true with our past politicians.

Welcome to the real world of politics.



Marist 7s

Dubbed the pinnacle of all 7s in Fiji and the “world’s biggest 7s carnival”, the 42nd Fiji Bitter Marist 7s kicks off today at the national stadium.

Fans will be treated to two days of high level and entertaining rugby. Police will be favourites after impressive wins at the Mana Whey Coral Coast and the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s and with the inclusion of Olympian Taliga, alongside seasoned campaigners Siti Waqa, Railoa, Keponi Paul, Ikanikoda and Nacagilevu, the side looks hot.

However, defending champs Tabadamu and teams such as Ratu Filise, Wardens, Saunaka, Yasawa, Congo Waimanu, Samurai Barracudas, Suva Stallions, Army FTG and First Light Taveuni will provide stiff challenge.

The tournament organisers led by familiar face Lawrence Tikaram have done everything possible to organise a tournament of high calibre. My best wishes to the participating teams at this year’s Marist 7s. May the best prepared team rise and conquer!

Qualified lecturers

I totally agree with Vinal Kumar, Suva that there are many qualified locals who can do a much better job than the expatriates who come on huge perks.

I believe some hired expatriates from some countries have poor English. They don’t understand our culture too.

Road signs

I fully agree with Viliame Naulivou that road signs are deceptive despite the duties bestowed on LTA (FT 20/3).

It’s causing huge risk to people and crossing stray animals. Someone help!

Cordless mics

I asked a whitegoods shop manager about cordless mics still being sold given that citizens are required to hand in these types of items within the said time-frame or pay a hefty fine, and to my surprise, he had no idea.

For those of us who had just purchased these items, will we be reimbursed?

Edward Kumar,
