iTaukei not under threat: PM

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has rejected Opposition claims that the iTaukei community is under threat.
Speaking in parliament today, Bainimarama said all the talk about the erosion of iTaukei culture and values are being concocted by the Opposition to suit their own needs.
“Open your eyes and look at your nation’s leadership. Do you think that I or any of the proud iTaukei leaders seated alongside me feel marginalised in our own country? It is lunacy to suggest so, Mister Speaker. The only iTaukei who feel marginalised are you.”
He also responded to calls for his resignation, saying he isn’t going anywhere – instead advising the Opposition to change their leadership.
“Get rid of your leader because he’s going to be your killer. On that note, since you’ve done nothing but the harp and cry and complain, my advice is to follow him out.”
The Prime Minister says he is proud of everything he and his government has done for Fiji
