At least Fiji is flourishing

Dear Editor,

Re: Advertisement for Military dictator

Like it or not at least Fiji under Bainimarama is flourishing economically with their national airline, a phone company, a chain of hotels, and their tourism is flourishing and the construction supply stores here in Samoa are full of Fijian products. 

Even the Fijian rugby team is better than Samoa’s. 

Internationally Fiji is known for their Peace Keepers while Samoa can’t even organize their police force. 

Sour grapes PS Jeffrey, sour grapes. 

You’re just so jeoulous that you’re stuck with that incompetent Tuilaepa who can’t even get one industry off the ground and any that are doing ok, like second hand car industries, he decides to kill. 

With this kind of leadership you are completely dependent on aid and remittances and always will be, while Fiji is flourishing, simply flourishing. 

In the process of nation building, Bainimarama is keeping landownership in the hands of the Fijian people as well. 

He’s a good capitalist because he does it for his people not for his friends and family.
