South Africa and Fiji

Citizens Constitutional Forum (CCF) chief executive officer Reverend Akuila Yabaki believes Fiji should follow the example of South Africa and create legislation to ban political parties and organisations, which are promoting racist beliefs and activities (Fijilive, May 30).

I wonder if Mr. Yabaki is aware of the recent two weeks of xenophobic riots in South Africa.

“The plight of the foreign Africans has been desperate, with some 30,000 displaced and many of their shops and shacks ransacked or destroyed; unknown thousands have gone back home” (Wall Street Journal, May 27).

These riots have raised the question “of whether the country really made a miraculously peaceful transition from apartheid to multiracial democracy, as so widely trumpeted, 14 years ago.”

These has posed some disturbing thoughts about whether one has viewed the past correctly.

Apart from the obvious causes of these riots (poor amenities and soaring food prices), the main cause is the feeling by South Africans that the foreigners in their countries are taking their jobs [only 42% of South Africans had jobs-Markinor Survey].

Thabo Mbeki’s government has floundered in response, clearly unaware that it has been sitting on a powder keg for some time — despite warnings from African ambassadors in South Africa. Contributing to its many failings is Mbeki’s government’s pan-Africanist naïveté to assume that all Africans are brothers. It failed to realize that to allow uncontrolled and massive immigration into a society already overflowing with unemployment is inevitably explosive.

As much as the ANC leaders are trying their best to “return the favour” to the hospitality they received from their African neighbours when they were in exile, they failed “to understand the difference between a country hosting a few thousand ANC exiles and the competitive impact in the labor, housing and other markets of millions of illegal immigrants.”

Therefore, if we consider the South Africa example above, I urge Mr. Yabaki, the CCF, the CERD and Mr. Bainimarama to rethink their ideas about which racial concepts are worth pursuing because as indicated in these South Africa events, after 14 years of multiracial democracy, it is not wise to jump into conclusions and make drastic changes to racial policies as soon as possible, without due regard of its major consequences 14-20 years or more down the line.

Bottom line is – tread carefully, it has been proven in South Africa that the ANC’s “pan-Africanist enthusiasm” has blown up under their very noses and the ordinary South Africans are paying the price. Therefore, if it can happen in South Africa, it can happen in Fiji.

Do we want that? No!

But it may well be if Mr. Yabaki, the CCF, the CERD, the NCBBF, Mr. Bainimarama, the Fiji military council and the interim regime, are not intelligent enough to have a vision and think ahead about the preservation of our God-given rights, that is, our race, our resources, our traditions, our culture and our prosperous future.

For Fiji! Ever Fiji! God bless Fiji!

    Yabaki is full of sh*t. During SDL’s term he was very vocal, on TV almost everyday complaining about ‘unconstitutional’ this and that, yet now with these illegal regime trampling all over our constitutional rights he’s quiet as a mouse! Lau rai ga na Labour party sapota duka!!

    Hmmmmm!! Back in 1956 when I was about 10yrs; we went through S. Africa on a train journey to S. Rhodesia [now Zimbabwe]. It is where I learnt what racisim was when a young “Cape Coloured” spat on me and punched me for entering his compartment by mistake.

    Got me thinking about Racisim and that is now why I am on these bloges with U guys.

    I am A. Committed to democracy totally Unless we can actually truely Let GOD take control…. I reckon God is the only worthy Dictator in Creation.

    I am B. Convinced that Indigenous peoples must be respected for being the origonally appointed residents of a land and their rights preserved…. However, while acknowledging that even he Indigenous must, over time move forward, they MUST be allowed to set the pace of change. NOT have it forced brutally and destructively at the point of a gun [or similar force]

    @NP – is the same gentleman that left his mother in the old people’s home in Tamavua ? Is he a Reverend ? The human rights activist ? Truzz up – Oh Jerusalem Jerusalem !!!!!!!!!

  6. Jese Waqalekaleka Says:

    Yabaki is a Hypocrite.

    Remember this Press Release in December 2003?????

    Look closely at what he says about ‘Bainimarama’s professionalism’. Maybe he saw something or was working together with Bainimarama right back then?

    Anybody can shed more light on this????

    Press Release Citizens Constitutional Forum

    Support for Bainimarama

    CCF calls on Fiji Government to give extension to Commander Frank Bainimarama’s tenure when his term in office comes up for renewal in March 2004.
    Since 2000 CCF has been consistent in giving robust support to Commodore Frank Bainimarama and especially in his unrelenting pursuit to bring all perpetrators of the 2000 events and the mutiny within the barracks to account and ultimate justice. We would give similar support to anyone who wants to do the same. We believe Commander Bainimarama has a plan to move the Military towards the highest standard of professionalism and that it becomes less politicized.
    This is a belief which is reflected in the CCF recommendation to the Defence Review Committee 2003.

    Rev. Akuila D. Yabaki, Director CCF

    Are they in the same committee with Jane Ricketts from Suva Point – the iG Tourism Minister’s wife ? Same gang with the neigbours up and down the road Shammem and Chaudary. Truzz up! No more family picnic in Suva Point for us – might find one big giant turd floating from the septic tanks there.

  8. EnufDictatorship Says:

    Bebenibogi, it sure sounds like that press release from 03 is still being pushed in 08. Dua dina na lomadrau o rau qo.

    AS it clearly states in that SA riots….SOMEONE DIDN\’T THINK CAREFULLY IN THE PAST ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF TRYING TO SHARE THE \”RIGHTS\”, AND NOW THEY (SAFIRCANS) ARE PAYING THE PRICE.

    Would you see any Pakis in India being given the rights that belongs to an Indian? Over Chodo\’s and his Haryana rellies\’ dead bodies, I\’m sure.
    It\’s the same concept we are dealing with here. Give Caesar what belongs to Caesar! And to others, what belongs to them.

    As much as I believe in equality, it\’s the thin line of showing RESPECT and ACCEPTING that one is not a native/indigenous body of a country, that will make all these racial issues maintainable. The only difficult thing we have to compound with here is people like Rev. Yabaki and Voreqe who see themselves as saviour of a cause, they don\’t really know two hoots about, except that it is a race issue.

    And as someone mentioned somewhere, THE CORRUPTION, WHICH WAS THE LAME EXCUSE GIVEN FOR THIS COUP, IS NOW A GONER, AND NOW RACE IS BECOMING AND ISSUE.

    Vinaka EnufDictatorship.

    Comparing Fiji to South Africa is like comparing apples and oranges. Yes, there are lessons that the entire world can learn from Sth Africa, especially post-Apartheid and their exercise in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

    But Sth Africa is truly multicultural, with 11 official languages and even more cultures. Many diverse tribe cultures have a legitimate claim to being native to the land of South Africa, including nomadic tribes.

    Fiji has 1 indigenous people, and a finely tuned historically significant structure for geographically designating cultural heritage.

    Try as they might, the coup apologists have no real basis of comparison between the situations in Fiji and South Africa.

    Fiji is for the indigenous Fijians. The People and the Land are One.

    God bless Fiji

  10. Tracker Says:

    thanks FG. Right on target!! Fiji needs to be looked at in its unique circumstances, contexts.

  11. Jose Says:

    FijiGirl, exactly what I’ve been saying. Now that’s my girl.

  12. EnufDictatorship Says:

    Exactly FijiGirl!

    But the lesson here for Fiji is, that the multiracial/cultural ANC policies from 14 years ago, didn\’t consider these kinds of consequences for SA 14 down the line.

    They were too OPEN-MINDED in trying to embrace cultures from outside SA that they forgot about the many indigenous SA and how their feelings would be affected by all these \”lover-dovey\” policies.

    That is what we, the Fijians who live in REALITY know, but of course these illegals and their supporters just can\’t seem to foresee, let alone understand.

    “All this talk about equality. The only thing people really have in common is that they are all going to die.”
    Bob Dylan (American folksinger, b.1941)

    “The doctrine of equality! There exists no more poisonous poison: for it seems to be preached by justice itself, while it is the end of justice.”
    Friedrich Nietzsche

  13. Leve davo Says:

    History will repeat itself, they still fail to understand that race is a fact in this world, that is why GOD made us that way. Look at Mauritius, Guyana and other 3rd World countries where the indigenous race have been supressed. The only difference is that the Fijian’s are a special race that will not see its identity be supressed and they explode, the whole world will hear, see and feel it, this time it will be worse than any other uprising.

    You see, they are testing the patience of Fijians but using their poking stick, poke,poke,poke, and then BANG, Musu mada i liu na nodratou boci and pass it to their dogs to eat…kawaca..bastards

  14. Budhau Says:

    EnufDictatorship – I don’t understand why SV makes idiots like you columnists in here. Last time it was that Taukei declaration andnow you are here with your Fijian ethno-nationalism crap. You guys think it is real macho to make threats in here.

    Your line, “if it can happen in South Africa, it can happen in Fiji” oh yeah….and what will happen when you have dealt with the “indian threat” – than that anger will turn inwards – Fijians on Fijians – because thats what this struggle is about.

    Remember Speight dealing with the Indian threat and the indigenous cause – what happened, the Fijians turned on each other.

    The struggle now is not about having a Fijian government – the issue is about having the “right” Fijian government. And the two groups of chiefs have been fighting about it – the reason for all the coups.

    So next time you idiots go around making threats, just remember that things can go wrong. The last time they tried to wipe out FB – they were shooting at each other. If a South Africa type situation develops in Fiji – it will be part of a intra-Fijian conflict – and you bugger will see violence for generations.

    Some of you idiots are very proud of your physical prowess – whether it be street fights in Suva, or rugby or war or whatever -and you bring that macho attitude in here. How many time have someone threatened me that they will kick my ass – or as Jose was saying today about some good old fashion beatings.

    Just watch out – you push this too far – staring the fire will only take a moment – putting it out, may take a few generations at least.

    BTW EnufDictatorship – that comparison of the rights of Pakistanis in India with that of the the Indo-Fijian in Fiji – dude, them Indo-Fijian they are Fiji citizens. If you don’t want to give all Fiji citizens equal rights – then cut out this crap about democracy

  17. natewaprince Says:

    Sounds like Yabaki.

  18. Striker Says:

    The snake is at it again. This time he is questioning why Lai and the SDL have refused to be part of the charter. This crook, who has ingratiated himself in public office thinks he is too high to listen to the opinion of the people. He refuses to learn that the majority of the chiefs, the provincial councils and other political parties, including some members of his own Labour Party, have rejected the charter. There is a simple law of physics that when you apply force in one direction, it will have repercussions on the other. So watch yourself sanke! Don’t push too hard or you might not be able to handle the consequences!

  19. Linus Says:

    @ Budhau. Except for the GUN; what on earth gives vb and his officers the delusion that they have any better idea than Qarase and the SDL / FLP elected govt. how to run this country. NOTHING, is the answer to that. Therefore the reasons for the 2006 coup do not lie in goverance issues, nor do they lie in corruption issues.

    Now, as for racisim; there are none more racist in Fiji than Chaudry and the FLP; so that reason is gone.

    Accordingly, since every vocalized reason is worthless, there must be “secret” or “hidden” agendas. That being so, is why no rational thinking man can afford to believe or trust 1 single damn word that comes out of the iG camp.
    AND THAT IS WHY WE ALL OPPOSE WHAT EVER CRAP THEY COME OUT WITH…. WE JUST CAN NOT BELIEVE IT.

  20. EnufDictatorship Says:

    Top of the morning to all Free Fiji bloggers!!!!!!

    GO DEMOCRACY!!!! DOWN WITH MILITARY DICTATORSHIP!!!! DOWN WITH THE IDIOT-WHO-KEEPS-BUTTING-HIS/HER/THEIR-SMELLY-HALITOSIS IN HERE!!!!

    Vei iko, iko-kilai-iko…au sega sara ni via valusia na noqu i cegu na wilika na ka o vola (kani\’u siqema rawa na yaca ENufDictatorship ka volai toka e cake), ia au kila ni dua na ka sega walega na betena ni lako mai vei kemuni.

    I now just scroll past the idiot\’s postings cos it is just a waste of my time and energy. Rather focus my positive energy on \”significant peoples.\”

  21. Budhau Says:

    Yes EnufDictatorship, I can see that you would rather focus your positive energy of significant people.

    May I politely suggest that rather than focusing you energy on people, why don’t you focus more of your energy on issues.

    If you really did not want to deal with that idiots, you-know-who, why did you bother with this last post above.

    Now…..do you see the idiot that you are. BTW my complaint had more to do with SV making idiots like you columnists on this site.

    Back to the issue – trying to suggest or threaten that the situation in Fiji can deteriorate into violence on immigrants – just like South Africa – that is stupid.

    All I did was point out that when you talk about violence – just be careful. because any violence that we may see will have more to do with intra-Fijian conflict – just like we saw during the mutiny.

    BTW EnufDictatorship – making a point like what I just did does not necessarily make me anti-democracy and pro-coup.

    Linus – good for you – you should always oppose all military dictatorship and the crap they out with – and support democracy and that means equal rights for all Fiji citizens.

    aubatinuku-N – you seem to have a lot of time on your hand – maybe you should go to the mall or something – but then again, they just might arrest you for being a pervert.

  22. Wailei! Says:

    Comparing Fiji to South Africa is a bit extreme. The indigenous populace there have suffered from the racial divide for such a long time. I dont think that we have reached that scale yet. The military has not shot people by the hundreds. However, I do agree that we could be pushed that way at some point in time when the shit hits the fan.

  23. Jose Says:

    Forget equal rights for all Fiji citizens. Forget even human rights. bring back the 10 Commandments. Thus saith the LOrd……This is the law of the christians given by God to keep for all generations. Bhudau can go claim his equal rights to haryana with chodopussy. Fijian native rule, Fijian domination, Fiji the way Fiji should be. Period.

    What Budhau and his client Chodo fail to realise, is that if one were to superimpose the South African situation over the Fiji situation…

    … Chodo is the white afrikaaner

    God bless Fiji

  28. Budhau Says:

    No FijiGirl – in your example – Enufs idea was that Chaudary and his people are like those workers in South Africa who have migrated there from other countries in search of work – and the local population is beating up on them – sort of like if the local population was to beat up on Mexicans in your part of the world.

  29. FijiGirl Says:

    Moron x Idiot = Budhau Quod Erat Demonstrandum

    God bless Fiji

  30. Budhau Says:

    Good FijiGirl – that is better line – then trying to explain away that Chaudary was like an Afrikaaner.

    You very smart – cinco de mayo.

  31. FijiGirl Says:

    Chodothru$h IS the White Afrikaaner – immigrant, bigoted, wants to crush the natives and steal their land, precious metals and natural resources.

    Why would anyone need an explanation, unless they were a moron, or an idiot, or paid by Chodo, or all three?

    God bless Fiji

  32. natewaprince Says:
