FNUGATE: Teaching Contract, Who Needs It! FNU insiders aghast Akanisi Ratumaikoro is lecturing and marking Hospitality & Tourism students exam papers despite her contract having expired before the final exams
Ratumaikoro is working allegedly without a contract for a few months now. The HOD for Hospitality, Eric Jioji, is reportedly aware that her contract has not been renewed yet but she is coming to teach every day at the FNU.
Coming soon: A lengthy Fijileaks investigation into the appointment of teaching staff reveal that applicants of a particular religious faith from any part of world are given preference over other competencies in academic appointments at FNU. Two candidates (one later appointed despite having no teaching experience) had on their cover application letters the word Muslim scrawled by FNU's HR Department; in other words, to be given special consideration for selection - but who gave the directive?:
Fijileaks: We have opened the comments page but want to issue a stern warning: Any anti-Muslim vile comments will not be approved by our censors; as Fijileaks founding editor-in-chief has repeatedly pointed out, he has spent most of his life in exile from native Fijian led governments - Sitiveni Rabuka, Laisenia Qarase and Frank Bainimarama; even threats to 'behead' him were issued by Indo-Fijian Hindus (Ashneel Sudhakar et al). In the case of Bainimarama, it was after our editor-in-chief had revealed that Mahendra Chaudhry was hiding $2million in Australia

Yes I agree with Fijileaks race and religion is immaterial . We need to ask where has this disregard and disrespect for the established rules, procedures and processes come from?

It is so disheartening to read so early in the morning the continuing FNU scandals. I said earlier - bring back Dr. Ganesh and let him stablise the ship. The ship’s sinking. Employoees can bring their unemployed relatives to hold the fort at FNU while they are away. What an organization! Nothing of this sort would have happened if Dr. Ganesh was still the VC. Anyone who would be firm on policy and procedure will be hated by the corrupt. The coalition of the corrupt got rid of Dr. Ganesh because with him there they couldnt have their way. We still wait to see what happened to those 50 students who were graduated by Dr. Ian, Dr. Eci and Dr. Mahendra Reddy without them completing the programmes. Latest word is that their man on the ground, one Hem Chandra, has been given a very senior position in Education HQ by Education Minister Mahendra Reddy as a reward to keep quiet on this matter. While the one who blew the whistle, an expatriate Dr. Praja, did not have his contract renewed. Latest revelations by Fiji Leaks shows there is no sign of the Rot ending.

With his university cap and all that FNU Chancellor looks the part - the part of the Emperor With No Clothes!

And the best part is, dear brethren, Mr Chancellor does not even have a degree!

The truth is there for all to see. Kaiyum started it all by appointing his families in key posts in the ministries he controls. His appointees are now continuing the example set by him by furthering his ambition of stacking the civil service with this particular race. One of the first thing that Iqbal Janniff did after taking office was to change the exam venue from jai Narayan college to Muslim hall. Now, there is recruitment and promotion of Muslims around FNU. We have lecturers from Indonesia and Turkey teaching us who can't speak and write proper English. How can these people be expected to assess students? Kaiyum is turning the civil service into Muslim domination in the name of reforms. He is doing it openly in broad daylight and making a mockery of the general Fijian population. RIP Fiji.

A University which grants degrees without students doing the required courses. A University where the Vice Chancellor doesnt have any degree or Diploma. A University where even the Deputy Chancellor failed his degree (Arvind Maharaj, failed BSc degree in California). A University where employees can send their relatives to fill in for them. A University where you dont have to have a job contract to enter a classroom and teach. These provide good insight to the thinking of Khaiyum and Reddy. As long at the University dutifully carries out their instructions, and does not allow free thinking, all is okay.

Else we forget, the FNU of today was the creation of Ganesh and his academic gang running rings around a gullible Minister Bole and backed by an equally gullible Nesbitt of the then Fiji Employers Federation. All crooked the whole lot of them and then in comes the most pathetic figure of Kodak degree holder Chancellor Ikbal. The rot is a direct reflection of what we have leading Parliament and all the rejects that have been brought in to help govern Fiji. As long as crooks back each other and remain in leadership, the decent remain a scarce commodity throughout this rotten saga.

Dr Chand an ethical man??? Give me a break! He was the most corrupted VC FNU ever had....all his shady deals are catching up with him and he has to answer for them. I can't see him making a return ever...disregarded every rule in the book to suit his greedy life and ruled like a dictator. Didn't take long for him to fall from the top and become a nobody over night....

Its easy to make allegations - so and so is a corrupt man. The real man will put the facts and let the readers be the judge. I have read everything which has come out on Dr. Ganesh. None stand any credibility. Even FijiLeaks stories, based on allegations by someone Dr. Ganesh fired for good reasons, are only allegations. The closest the anti-Ganesh lot found was Minister Filipe Bole medical matter. On this let the court decide. I have asked all anti Ganesh people to give evidence of his corruption. I myself will lodge the complaint to police and FICAC. But no one has so far given any fact. Western heat generates too much hot gas. Maybe that explains his bitterness of Dr. Ganesh. Or may be he is one of the supporters of Kai-Reddy team, who when cant find any evidence of even a small wrong doing, resort to smearing the good name of Dr. Ganesh.

Just goes to show that the huge lack of transparency in government can also transfer to institutions like FNU, which is a real shame.
