Our favourite paparazzi, Argus Tuft, snapped this revealing photo of our
dictator wearing his new self-awarded Order of the Companion of Fiji (CF).
Argus told us that he hid behind a two-way mirror, which is how he managed
to capture the dictator puckering up in a moment of loving
self-absorption. The CF is normally awarded to outstanding citizens in
recognition of noble deeds in the service of our beloved country. But
there is nothing noble about our dictator or his deeds. In much the same
way he scammed $185,000 of taxpayers’ funds by calling it a back pay
“entitlement”, he has now helped himself greedily to the nation’s highest
honour simply because he has the (interim) power to confer such awards. As
one blogger so succinctly put it, the dictator’s blatant abuse of his
powers will not be forgotten. Henceforth the CF, which is worn around the
neck, will be known as The Pig’s Bridle.
NB: and by the way, e sa veve mai na gusuna e na levu ni lasu kei na qaciqacia. Destress tale mada Avenai!!
