BAINIMARAMA'S right call on Climate Change but FIJI and other Pacific Islands will be at mercy of deluded President-elect Donald Trump who thinks that global warming was ‘invented by the Chinese Government’
“The story of Kumi, and that of many of our villages and settlements, is one that I tell often on the international stage when alerting nations to the peril we face in the Pacific." - Frank Bainimarama, December 2016
Fiji Government media release on new seawall at Kumi village to help protect against surging tides: Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama today[28 December 2016] commissioned a seawall and concrete walkway for the village of Kumi in Verata, Tailevu. The $378,000 project which is funded by government through the National Disaster Management Office protects the villagers of Kumi from surging tides as a result of climate change. The head of government said that Kumi is one of many villages across our islands that is threatened by rising seas. “The story of Kumi, and that of many of our villages and settlements, is one that I tell often on the international stage when alerting nations to the peril we face in the Pacific. “Because when I go to the world, I take the struggles faced by ordinary Fijians with me.” PM Bainimarama added that government has a responsibility to protect the future of the Fijian people, and Fiji will never stop fighting to spare this world from the ravages of climate change. The seawall project is located along the coast of Verata, Tailevu.
CLIMATE OF SECRECY: The seawall has been constructed by VITI VANUA HOLDINGS LTD of Labasa but its managing director Mohammed Yasin nor the FNFP are telling Fijileaks whether the company has now paid up its employees FNPF contributions for the years 2008 to 2010?
