In Parliament, Opposition Leader Ro Teimumu Kepa asked the Health Minister if the Government would reduce the cost of consumables for dialysis treatment. The minister’s reply was they did not want to compromise the dialysis treatment by getting cheap and sub-standard consumables. The question was, could the Government bring down the cost of treatment and not to buy cheap consumables! This is what I call a roundabout reply. Or like my Mulomulo canefarmer mate said, “Areh wah!”

Our policemen and teachers are people who society looks up to. Parliamentarians are our representatives. I often talk to my children about our representatives in Parliament. I usually tell my children that the parliamentarians are our role models. The other day my son was watching the news in the afternoon and a section of a parliamentary debate was shown. My son gave me a bad look and pointed to the TV screen and asked me, “Dad are they our role models with that kind of behaviour?” I couldn’t answer. I believe our parliamentarians should behave in a manner where they can be seen as role models.
Our Fijiana women were surely up to the task when they defeated the likes of the South Africa and Wales, and could have won against Australia, but fell short. Judging by those performances, one has to say they would be a force to reckon with in the near future. So all hope is on you guys or girls to keep up the good work and the world is your oyster. Had you girls started off like you did against Australia, for sure a medal would have been in the bag. I guess that was not God’s plan and our prayers remain stronger next time around. Toso Viti.

I hope and pray that the recent establishment of Energy Fiji Ltd to takeover from Fiji Electricity Authority would not be followed closely with increases in electricity charges.
Why is Government not investing in the 7s team? I believe they have marketed Fiji the most compared with any other sport.
