The SODELPA leadership continues to be silent over MP Mosese Bulitavu’s racial slur, however calls for his removal him from the Party and Parliament mount from the public.
This time the very people in Labasa whom Bulitavu was referring to in his racial comments have condemned the SODELPA MP. Bulitavu claimed that his social media post was based on stories he had heard growing up in rural Labasa.
Speaking strongly against Mosese Bulitavu’s degrading comments, Labasa Cane Lorries Association General Secretary, Mohammed Idris says these comments are unacceptable.
“What he did, one he has created racism, the other like he has gone on gender, i think these sorts of comments from a politician it cannot be absorbed.”
Bulitavu earlier told FBC News that what he posted on social media was common in the cane belt areas in Labasa however this was strongly denounced by Idris.
“You know especially a person brought up in Labasa in the cane belt areas, this was something very common.Definitely this people should be kicked out of parliament because they are not the right people to run the country.”
Idris says comments by Bulitavu are attempts to create division and his claims of immoral behaviour in Labasa is false.
“We in cane belts areas of Labasa we stay as a united group and we don’t have any differences within the community.”
Meanwhile, SODELPA is yet to take action on Bulitavu.
