September 8, 2019 7:15 am
Emotions ran high on Friday night after the suspension of National Federation Party President Pio Tikoduadua.
This as fellow NFP MP Lenora Qereqeretabua took to social media to launch a tirade of attacks against FijiFirst party members which included curses bestowed to children and family members.
NFP Party Leader Professor Biman Prasad admits that his MP may just have taken matters too far, letting emotions get the better of her.
The post loaded on Friday night, which was later modified saw Qereqeretabua launching scathing attacks against Government MPs and their families.
Professor Prasad admits it was wrong for his MP to use such language.
“I don’t think it’s appropriate to say something like that. I haven’t had a chance to speak with her but I looked at her Facebook page and compared it to what had been sent and what was there. I see that the version you sent me has the word curse whereas the one on the post now doesn’t have it. So I presume from that – she realized it herself and personally in a bit of earnestly I won’t subscribe to that kind of use of language.”
With Qereqeretabua an ambassador for WOWS Kids Fiji, the charity Founder – Sina Kami says children should be kept out of such political matters.
An emotional Kami says they do not welcome such people in their set up.
“Whatever she says that’s her own personal view. I can’t really explain why she said that. We take on the children as they are and support them not because of any political side because at the end both sides – especially the government has been supporting us and all we’re asking is for people to come in with the right heart and support the children because it’s not a political party.”
FBC News repeatedly called Qereqeretabua to get her comments on the matter however this was unsuccessful.
It is understood the opposition MP is out of Suva.
