August 28, 2015 6:51 am
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has criticized the Opposition for not speaking out against seditious activities in Ra and Nadroga that was aimed at creating separate states for the two provinces.
Bainimarama brought up the issue during debate on a motion to create a retirement home industry in the country.
He says we need stability in Fiji.
We are not going to get stability if we have people riling up the poor, vulnerable in our community to bring up acts that they have done in the last two months.
He attacked Opposition MP Viliame Gavoka for speaking out against the Military and adds he should be investigated after he was seen in Lautoka wanting to visit those held on sedition charges
His comment was, “I’m here to support whoever supports SODELPA’s cause.” The member should be investigated by Police, for that statement alone.
Bainimarama also criticized Opposition MP Tupou Draunidalo, for attacking the Military.
This morning the member of NFP termed the RFMF as a terrorist group. She has already come out openly to say the RFMF had removed her stepfather. She is trying to personalize the RFMF. I request that she doesn’t do that.
This prompted a reply from Draunidalo.
I did say that there was only one institution that was causing instability in the country. That was my point said with no dislike or anything against the institution.
Leader of Opposition Ro Teimumu Kepa also stood up in defense of what they have been accused of.
If he has any proof, take it to the courts and let the court decide.
Bainimarama also pointed out in Parliament, the Opposition has never spoken out against the seditious activities.
