Bainimarama asked Radrodro to answer a question on whether or not he was removed from the Fiji Sports Council as the financial manager for allegation of mismanagement
SODELPA MP Aseri Radrodro, new FSC Chairman Vishnu Mohan and Prime Minister and Minister for Sugar Voreqe BainimaramaThe appointment of the new Chairman of the Fiji Sugar Corporation has resulted in a SODELPA MP Aseri Radrodro criticizing the decision and the Prime Minister and Minister for Sugar hitting back and raising the question on what Radrodro had done in his previous job.
Radrodro has issued a statement saying that the appointment of former ANZ Chief Executive Officer for Fiji and the Pacific, Vishnu Mohan as the new FSC Chairman is another slap in the face for qualified and professional Fijians who have graduated and worked their way to top positions in Fiji and abroad.
Aseri Radrodro has hit out and queried the logic behind the appointment of Mohan, saying that the expatriate has since coming into Fiji, taken over two executive positions in Fiji, the first being the Chairman of Public Service Commission, and now the Fiji Sugar Corporation.
He says when someone like Mohan finishes his job in Fiji as per his expatriate contract, he should be returning to his homeland. Radrodro says other people can take up the post. He also questions what is happening with the PSC as two Permanent Secretaries have resigned after just a few months.
When approached by Fijivillage on Radrodro raising concern on Mohan’s appointment, Prime Minister Bainimarama asked Radrodro to answer a question on whether or not he was removed from the Fiji Sports Council as the financial manager for allegation of mismanagement.
Bainimarama says Radrodro should not be talking about qualified Fijians based on this. When questioned on this matter, Radrodro confirmed that he was removed but he says the allegations have not been proven as yet. Radrodro says he will not talk about the allegations levelled against him before his removal from the Sports Council. Source: Fijivillage News, 19 July 2016
