September 8, 2015 1:34 am
Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has warned civil servants in Levuka, the people of Ovalau and their chiefs to be cautious of some people who may try to use them for their own political benefit.
Bainimarama who is in Levuka says a similar thing happened in 2000 and it is showing up again.
He told a gathering last night that some politicians and chiefs in the Western Division have been charged with sedition.
Bainimarama urged the people to be wary various new denominations that are being formed, as they tend to twist the old beliefs to bring about their own political agenda.
This agenda he says will not come into fruition under his government.
The Prime Minister also stressed that i-taukei rights and traditions are well protected in the Constitution, contrary to what many politicians are preaching.
He says people must not be easily swayed by politics that will only take the country backwards.
Bainimarama also warned them to be careful of what they hear and how they choose to act on it.
The Prime Minister is in Levuka for a three day National Climate Change Summit which got underway this morning.
