FijiFirst Leader, Voreqe Bainimarama said that one of the parties in Fiji is constantly using the Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum’s name to cause division.
Speaking at a campaign meeting in Lami last night, Bainimarama said that while speaking to people in Rakiraki about racial discrimination an elderly man asked him why an Indo Fijian man is standing by Bainimarama’s side.
Bainimarama said that the man then questioned him on why an i-Taukei cannot replace Sayed-Khaiyum.
The FijiFirst Leader then stressed to the people present at the campaign meeting that the type of thinking which the man displayed was a result of the poisonous ideas which were shared by politicians 10 to 20 years ago.
He also said that when he went to America another man questioned him if the Attorney General had a thesis.
Bainimarama said the man claimed that the Attorney General’s thesis weakened the things which belonged to the i-Taukei.
Bainimarama then stressed that all the rumors about the Attorney General are not true.
He added that everything was done by the military since 2000 and the Attorney General has only joined them recently.
He said if he had opposed the ideas of the military then he would have been removed a long time ago.
Bainimarama has also told the people that i-Taukei land is well protected in the 2013 constitution.
Any changes would require the support of 75% of parliament and 75% of the registered voters in the country. Source: Fijivillage News, Friday, 12/09/2014
