You had a successful career in New Zealand – what has brought you back to Fiji? 26 October 2013:
"I first went to New Zealand after the 1987 military coups. The old Fiji Sun of which I was the last editor closed. In 1991 we returned to Fiji to take up a position as editor of the Fiji Daily Post and returned to New Zealand in 1996. I had a young family then. I always believe that everything in life happens with a purpose. When we moved to Hamilton, Asenaca, my wife and I had one big priority, to ensure our 11 children received the best education we could afford. The plan was that once they received their university degrees, got qualified, secured jobs and started their own families that we, as a couple, would return to Fiji and spend the rest our lives in the land of our birth. We have no more children living with us now. So in a way, we are free. They are all independent now doing their own thing. So everything we have planned for has come to pass. The process of relocating to Fiji has already started. We have a property and other assets in New Zealand that we need to dispose of. We also have a small Sydney-based news website business catering for Fiji people living overseas that we are developing. But Fiji is our passion. We love Fiji. How can we forget our roots? We want to put back something into the country. I accepted the Fiji SUN offer to train its young journalists because this is a wonderful opportunity for me to share my experiences and train them to become better journalists. They have exciting talents."
