Rabuka tells FBC television audience he will NEVER reveal the names of all those who were behind his 1987 racially motivated coups - and yet wants his MPs to tell TRUTH
Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, now FFP Foreign Minister, tells FBC's 4 the Record that Sitiveni Rabuka was fully aware of the CRW Unit soldiers training on his (Rabuka's) farm to prepare for the bloody 2000 mutiny
at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks
* "New Party Leader of the Social Democratic Liberal Party Major General (Retired) Sitiveni Rabuka advised the party’s Members of Parliament to never tire of telling the truth" - SODELPA MP Salote Radrodro
* Rabuka claims that he had no foreknowledge that the CRW Unit soldiers (which he had founded after the 1987 coups) were training on his land before mounting the bloody 2 November 2000 mutiny to murder Frank Bainimarama, the then Commander of the RFMF
* BUT his 1987 coup co-conspirator Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, now FFP Foreign Minister, has told FBC's 4theRecord that Sitiveni Rabuka was fully aware of the CRW Unit soldiers training on his (Rabuka's) land to prepare for the bloody 2000 mutiny at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks
Which of the two coupists are to be believed?
Fijileaks: The 4 the Record Sitiveni Rabuka interview [below] reveal that he is still a shifty and untrustworthy coupster - hiding behind his own IMMUNITY and refusing to reveal the names of all those who turned Fiji into a Satan's Paradise. WE REPEAT, SITIVENI RABUKA MUST GO NOT ONLY AS LEADER BUT ALSO HE MUST BE BOOTED OUT AS MEMBER OF SODELPA PARTY. He has become a liability to the party and to all those fighting dictatorship in Fiji
Watch the full interview with unapologetic SODELPA leader Rabuka:
"Ratu Inoke Kubuabola told Islands Business magazine of May 1988 that for more than six hours on April 19 he and Rabuka, later joined by Jone Veisamasama, 'talked about different options'.
It was on 19 April that the groundwork for the coup was laid and according to Kubuabola, 11 May was the day his co-conspirators decided to proceed with its execution. He also claims that when it was learnt that Parliament would not sit on Friday they had agreed to bring forward the coup to Thursday.
Another crucial intermediary between the Taukei Movement and the military, the Rev Tomasi Raikivi, provided his house in Suva as a centre for overall planning. Thus it was there that Rabuka met the other conspirators on Easter Monday, nine days after the defeat of the Alliance Party. We will let Rabuka explain the rest, as he did to Eddie Dean and Stan Ritova in his infamous autobiography No Other Way.
He went to Rev Raikivi's for, ' … What he understood was an ordinary 'grog' party. It was early evening, and he just walked in, as he normally would, throwing his 'sevusevu' of yagona towards the bowl where the 'grog' was being mixed. 'I saw all these people sitting down, and realised it was some kind of a meeting. Some of the people greeted me, although I could not see everyone clearly because it was fairly dark in the lounge-room. Nobody asked me to leave.' When his eyes adjusted to the darkness, he discovered the gathering was 'quite a formidable group'. He says it included Ratu Finau Mara, Ratu George Kadavulevu, Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, Ratu Keni Viuyasawa, the brother of Brigadier Epeli Nailatikau, Filipe Bole, Ratu Jo Ritova of Labasa, Ratu Jale Ratum, 'Big Dan' Veitata, and the host Raikivi. Another leading light at this meeting was Apisai Tora.''
