Weleilakeba, board ousted in FHL coup
14 JUN 2008
There have been major changes within the Fijian Holdings Limited hierarchy with reports that chief executive Sitiveni Weleilakeba’s employment has been terminated by the board.
While there has been no independent confirmation, a One National News report says a new board has taken over the company’s operations in a boardroom coup.
It also reports that senior military officer – Colonel Mohammed Aziz – has been appointed FHL deputy chairman.
Board members reportedly ousted in the FHL board include Josaia Mar, Tui Malekai, Moh’d Asif Razak and Weleilakeba.
Two board members who remain are lawyer Ulaiasi Baya and businessman Robin Storck.
Fijilive’s attempts to contact Weleilakeba remained futile because his mobile phone was switched off.
Comments have also been sought from the FHL board.
First of all, is that boci Aziz in our out of the Board? How did he came into the Board in the first place? This is a Taukei Company owned by individual Taukei shareholders, Mataqali, provincial and yavusa investors.
How did that little snake Ulaiasi Baya got in. Okay, he’s a lawyer but what has he got that makes him stand out from the other lawyers. Has he ever won a case in Fiji or is he another Rajend Chaudary, too much noise but now substance. Base on his short reputation in Fiji, he came in and started working on special projects drafting Taukei land rights bills for the Qarase Government based on his expertise in Australia and as soon as he secured an LLM scholarship via the government he leaves without notice attracting the wrath of Qoroniasi Bale. Now he is back sucking up to this bunch of thieves in government, and suddenly, he is a board member of Fijian Holdings and ear marked as the next General Manager for NLTB. Something he now boasts openly to his relatives about. Can the Australian High Commission please take note and as of now rescind his permanent residency status.
Do the people know that he has a long chequered love affair history with the illustrious Mary Jane. Ever since his USP days, his days up in Queensland and now in Fiji he has been a pot smoking rastafarian with the trade mark hairstyle, blood shot eyes and frail built. My oh my what a sad lot, first it’s the pot smoking Director of the Fiji Human Rights Commission and now it’s the Ganja smoking NLTB General Manager to be and FHL Board member. This illegal self proclaimed government sure knows how to attract the right kind, not forgetting that Pryde, and that person they selected as Election Commissioner. And not forgetting their chief witness, that Australian Conman, what’s his name? Birds of the same feathers surely do really flock together, eh people?
And Sereana Qoro taking over Siti’s job, well Siti you just have to blame yourself for that one as your head were too over the clouds at times thinking you knew it all. Little did you know that the long knives were being drawn by conniving ones in your inner circle for a long time. And with Daddy Cupit gone, you shoud have seen this coming and kept your guard much higher. The pet you were feeding had now turned around and bitten you hand when you should have learned from her track record at Housing Authority.
Finally, at the Accountants Convention today, Richard Naidu ask chartered accountants for a show of hands as to who among them thinks the illegal (he did not use that term) government is not business/investor friendly. Well, the show of hand was 100% among the audience of more than 300 members. Need I say more, when business experts have made their statement?
Fijian Holdings Limited is the most successful company controlled by Taukeis and this mob in government, yes I will have to say, the so called political leaders supported by the Indian Community in Mahendra Chaudary are hell bent on destroying it. Let us start calling a spade a spade, no longer Mr nice guy I have finally spitted the dummy on this one, and the benefit of the doubt I have always given the Indian electors are over. Mehendra Chaudary has been overwhelmingly supported by the Indian Community over the last few elections and he is hell bent on destroying us Taukeis economically, culturally, and politically. So there is subtance in saying that there is a large group of Indians (I acknowledge that there are sane ones represented by Richard Naidu and Warden Narsey) that do not want equality in the commercial arena and they are hell bent on creating genocide against us the Tauke because these are people that constantly elect those who are now 100% focus on destroying the Taukei!!!!
This is now the time to take up arms because our flesh and blood in the military have been brainwashed and would rather murder us then turn away from Voreqe (the Pig) and Chaudary (the Snake). They (the soldiers who are our first cousins, nephews, uncles etc. are no longer part of us but part of them and that is the line I am drawing in the sand right now. My flesh and blood in the military are nolonger my kind and I nolonger have that brotherly and kinsman love for them. Its over, unless they leave the military and return to the village. Such is the sacrifice they must make as we will all have to make a sacrifice in one way or another either directly or indirectly for the sake of our future as a race and a nation of the Taukei People and for our childrens sake. Any right thinking person in the military or supporters of the illegal government should have read between the lines by now given the path those in power are taking, to use Driti’s infamous line.
Let me ask you all a question. They are preaching equality but look at the Indians. They control 99% of the commercial sector. They were given a head start while our forefathers needed permission from the Colonial Masters, if they needed to leave the village to go and do some business in the city. Therefore, the affirmative actions by previous government including the creation of Fijian Holdings was done as an attempt to fast tracking the Taukei into the commercial sector since it is a known factor that when one section of the community totally dominates the nations commercial wealth, resentment will eventually arise leading to a pressure cooker situation. Look what happened to Germany leading to the quick rise of Hitler. This was a possibility in Fiji so our previous leaders including Qarase were merely trying to implement something to avoid such a future tragedy. It is not racist or discrimination but an attempt to bring one ethnic community up to closely equal another. Even closer to home, the reason for the problems in the Solomons was because of domination of the civil service by one commuity drawing the resentment of another (Malaita against Guadalcanal).
You guys running government now, take note, that once the perception of those in the military change, you’d bette have your arses plugged with expensive tampons because the shits will be flying all over the place. If the same military can now be supporting Indians, when they were so nationalistic in 1987 and 2000, then their view will change again in future as the pendulum swings again to the opposite direction. Such is the law of nature and what goes around comes around. So be prepared!!! .
Back to us Taukei. yes, the problem with us Fijians is we want everything done for us. We cry for affirmative actions, we want our qoliqoli rights, we want our NLTA, but when our enemies come in and blatantly start dismantling what our champions, like Qarase, had fought hard for over the years for us. What do we do? We say in God’s time, lets wait and see, blah blah blah as we expect someone eles rather then I should rise and fight this government or fight for us. Hey people, God helps those who help themselves. Apartheid in South Africa would not have come down if the students of Soweto did not rise up or Mendela was prepared to rot in jail for almost three decades. The opposition of our chiefs such as the Rokotui Dreketi or the Tui Cakau will come to nought if we do not go there and fight their battles as foot soldiers.
We had better start doing something for ourselves if we do not want to end up like aboriginal races everywhere such as Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia and the Americas. The time for words are long gone. The time for action is now. What are you waiting for????
