Pote tale tu o “Where’s my Whisky?”

Rights group

AKUILA Yabaki said the proposed FHRC will have no legal standing since it will not be done by an act of parliament.

Can he advise Mahendra Chaudhry that the People’s Charter cannot be part of the Constitution because any changes to the Constitution can only be done in Parliament?

It is about time Yabaki decides which side he is on.

    what a pathetic excuse for a pastor. He’s so gregarious. He echoes what other people says – no originality or imagination.

  2. Keep The Faith Says:

    Yeah Rev…wake up from your drunken stupor and get a bloody CLUE!

  3. Tim Says:

    The side he’s on is most likely to be directly proportional to the level of intoxication.

  4. LUVfiji Says:

    cheers Acqwila! nothing’s been legal in this country, anyway, since 5/12 2006 !! And Rajend knows that!

  5. Tim Says:

    By the way – where’s the FHRC’s Shaistatic outburst on reports on human trafficking and the plight of women?
    I’m thinking there must be one or two potheads engaged in deep and meaningful discussions with self appointed leaders of a hoonta on how they might respond to such an outrageous and unfair, media biased and sensational report!.
    Bubba K and his piece of mutton dressed up as God know’s what (Shaista – Loreal’s worst example) will no doubt give us some Fair and Balanced bullshit before too much longer.

  6. Tim Says:

    Come to think of it – where’s Shaista’s concern as a “human rights advocate” for youth suicides in Labasa?.
    Does she have shares in the paraquat company? What a piece of piss this bloody stupid selfintersted bitch is. Amoral, unprincipled, dishonest, self-promoting, and basically just pathetic. Still – she’s in good company – I guess that’s what drives her.

    Where were you guys when mr Chaudhary was ousted from Parliment in 2000? Isn’t this an abuse of consitutional rights of a legal citizen and a elected leader who was fighting for the prosperity of this country and its people? If you can stand up for Qarase then you will have to make it fair to what happen in 2000..You only reap wot sow and this the haverst of 2000 we reaping.. Its black bear has its own days!!!

    Where Were You?
    Publish date/time: 06/06/2008 [07:42]

    “Where were the human rights champions when I was ousted and when racist policies were being introduced by the Soqosoqo Duavata Ni Lewenivanua (SDL).”

    That is the question raised by Interim Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry in relation to people opposing the work of the interim government and the National Council for Building a Better Fiji.

    Chaudhry who was ousted in 1987 and 2000 said those people who are now fighting for human rights did not utter a word when his government was overthrown.

    Chaudhry said it is about time that people put their differences aside and build a Fiji which is truly democratic.

  8. Tim Says:

    Here comes another “where were you” logicatition.
    Where was I when the Vietnam war occured
    Where was I when Mugabe took power.
    Where was I the Dafur situation became so outrageoudly ridiculous and the world looked the other way.
    Where was I when Frank took his last piss.
    Where was I when George W invaded Iraq.

    The “where was I argument” is so often offered as some sort of effort to counter people’s legitimate views because it tries to portray people as being inconsistent.

    MV – before you use the argument – ask yourself where were you?. Where was Frank? Where was Chodo?
    Where is Shaista when basic human rights abuses occur.
    Its an argument that assumes too much.
    Maybe when “where was I” , I was just busy with other things, or even just apathetic. It doesn’t alter anything as it relates to current issues.

  9. Jose Says:

    Exactly, Tim. It doesn’t make this one right either.

    Chaudhary had it coming for trying to sell Fiji to India, he has not changed his stripes and Fiji will NEVER be a little INDIA.

  11. Jese Waqalekaleka Says:

    @ MV, Chaudary is correct in questioning where was the concern for human rights or for him, when he was illegally outsted by the Speight coup.

    The answer is quite simple. The Internet was still very new and not many people had access to it, like now. Blog sites were virtually non existent and people didn’t have political awareness then as they now have.

    I don’t think it had anything to do with being biased, but rather the opportunity that is now available was not there, when he was illegally outsted.

    This is proven from the fact, not as many Fijians supported the Speight coup, like they did during the Rabuka coup. One fact which is often overlooked and testament to the Fijians, is that Fijians since the December coup have learnt from their follies during the previous 2 coups and were not going to accept the reason for the coup, ‘hook, line and sinker’, which unfortunately the Indians did this time around.

    This is where the Mara, Ganilau and Nailatikau siblings miscalculated miserably because they were involved in the coup and presumed that Fijians would support the Bainimarama coup ‘lock, stock and barrel’ because of their name.

    They were greatly dismayed when the Fijians turned they backs on them and severally criticised them for their involvement to this day and the reputations and goodwill built up by their parents over the many years have been destroyed through their selfish ambitions.

    Having said that, it still does not give Chaudary the right or make it permissible for him to turn around and support the Bainimarama coup.

    From his comments, it shows illogical conclusions and a person full of hatred and vengeance, very much like Bainimarama, who fled for his life during the mutiny at QEB.

    Their personal experiences, unpleasant and unfair as they were, still does not make it right or lawful for Bainimarama to remove or for Chaudary to support the illegal removal of Qarase in December 2006.

    @Mareko Vuli – I’m here now, I’m saying it loud, black and proud!

  13. Jose Says:

    @ mareko vuli
    Where were you to publicly and loudly advocate for chodopussy’s rights?

  14. Mark Manning Says:

    I hate to be crude , but it sounds like this minister has his hands on his privates too much !

  15. Mark Manning Says:

    key into google ( drunk poem )

  16. Mark Manning Says:

    From : -The Drunk Poem , off the net .
    Starkle, starkle, little twink,
    Who the hell are you I think.
    I’m not under what you call
    The alcofluence of incohol.
    I’m just a little slort of sheep,
    I’m not drunk like thinkle peep.
    I don’t know who is me yet,
    But the drunker I stand here the longer I get.
    So just give me one more fink to drill my cup,
    ‘Cause I got all day sober to Sunday up.

  17. LUVfiji Says:

    @JW – a great post. We must also remember that never before have so many Fijians in top executive positions have been the target of coup-makers. That is why the name bainimarama should be condemned by all.

    btw – fellow bloggers, please reconsider banking at ANZ, in fact boycott them. Move out , they employ a bainimarama. For Suva , go across the road to Westpac. ANZ sucks! Poooee!

  18. Peace Pipe Says:

    Truthful comments coming from an Indian writer tells us that are law abiding Indians who are bold enough to criticize the wrongful the ig and their cronies.

    Yabaki is an obvious ig supporter being a member of the ncbbf and an outspoken champion of the other race as he declares everything done to help Fijian as racist and marginalises the minority race (Indian). This whisky chum seems fixated on the race card it seems to be his only subject whenever he has anything to say. Someone just put a 100% alcohol dry shot in his drinking glass to make drunk him permanently. Oh sorry he is always drunk whenever he speaks.

  19. Peace Pipe Says:

    A/B the lil’ India plan is taking shape as the military is being overseen by Col Aziz who is acting chief of staff after the Fijian CoS Saumatua was sent on pre retirement leave. Those bloody soldier are blind to see what is happening under their very noses. An Indian leading the army now so whats next? Their very only people get abused but they just turn a blind eye, all those fools on the hill. There is no resistance whatsoever and like the boiling frog it will be too late when disaster strikes. Remember, Prevention is better then cure.

  20. Adi Kaila Says:

    From the murmurings all around our Indian Kai are very much opposed to the ig coupsters and their nbccf, they are much aware of the danger this poses for the entire Nation and want nothing to do with the racist comments emanating continuously by the self serving coupsters to justify their treasonous coup that the SDL Government is anti Indian.

    Friends who are Muslims, Hindus, Christians are really concerned that it is the Indians who have migrated overseas that are egging the ig on not realising exactly how incendiary their behaviour is away from the turmoil in Fiji. They are concerned that their wonderful lifestyle in Fiji regardless of their circumstances cannot be equalled anywhere in the world. Well we all know that is the same for the rest of the population and really need to get this friggin useless army made redundant asap.

    As for that Akuila Yabaki – isn’t that just typical of these so called servants of the Lord – he thinks the title Reverend gives him licence to know what is good for Fiji – yeah man – he needs the money for his alcoholic lifestyle as it gives him the guts to be vocal – take the booze away from him and he’s a weak arse puritan.

    The ig should go ahead and upgrade St Giles asap because they will need the facilities for themselves pretty soon.

    Bloody amazing how the lowlifes emerge from under their dank rocks to take up illegal positions and try to preach their insanity to the sane. Pulling voreqes finger may be a big thrill for them – but puuuuuuuuuuuhleeeeeeeese don’t impose that shit on the Nation.

    This site is here to stay – coup or no coup and if anyone tries to make an illegal move in future we will expose them.

    Will someone put some coke in crazy Yabakis bottle of whiskey – give it a jolly good shake – stick it up his sorry old arse and let him fly – qai macala!

  21. Jose Says:

    The title Reverend on a man is unBiblical. This is a title used in Reverence for the Lord.
    Constantine the Roman Emperor, fearing that he would lose power because the Christians were growing in numbers, lied to the nation and said that he had a personal encounter with Jesus and now he has converted. He then ordered all his soldiers to the sea to be baptised. Then they marched into the church with all their paganism and rituals of “Sunworship” taking over and gave themselves TITLES. They are Reverend, Right Reverend, His Holiness, Father, Arch Bishop etc. A true man of God, God fearing man will not use any of this titles that God alone has a right to. A man has no right to address or be addressed as such.
    So forget about those little men, yabaki and mataca they are apostate christians. Nothing more.

    Lol @ Mark’s drunk poem – I just bought a book for my niece yesterday on nursery rhymes and theres a button on the cover which plays “twinkle, twinkle little star” and I have the book here on my desk to give to her tomorrow so I am singing the lyrics you posted to the tune and OH BOY!!

    Akuila Yabaki is a clueless son of a gun in a mans world where if hes not careful, a woman could beat the crap out of him.

  24. Tracker Says:


    Reading the posts reminded me of one of Yabaki’s comments when he presented CCF’s submission to the CERD Committee in Geneva & he made the statement that traditional Fijian Institutions have passed their use by date – similar to conclusions arrived at by Aiyaz Khaiyum in his LLM thesis.

    I post it below for some reflection on a Fijian who is so racist against his own kind:

    CCF says GCC and NLTB passed their sell by dates
    Saturday, March 08, 2008
    Update: 2.18pm There were deliberate moves by Qarase’s Government to condone racial discrimination according to the Citizen Constitutional Forum.
    In his submission to the Committee on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination in Geneva last month CCF director Reverend Akuila Yabaki called for steps to be taken towards the absolute banning of racist organizations in Fiji.
    “While there is an affirmation in the Convention for the protection of the rights of indigenous people, it would seem that the existence of traditional institutions such as GCC, NLTB and the provision of superior parliamentary representation for indigenous Fijians may have passed their sell by date,” he said.
    Mr Yabaki said while numerous reviews had been carried out in the last two decades or even before independence, there had been no political will to carry it towards their resultant implementation.
    He said the legacy of British colonial paternalism towards indigenous Fijians had to be seriously reviewed in light of international laws.
    “CCF’s involvement in the People’s charter process especially in pursuit of the eradication of all forms of racialised politics must be maintained to find a way forward,” he said.
    The interim administrations delegation included Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs Ross Ligairi, Judy Ham Nam and Fiji UN Office staff in New York Esala Nayasi.
    The Fiji Human Rights Commission also sent a delegation.
