If ever there was a time the interim regime could do at least ONE thing right it is now.
With all the testosterone fuelled promises of a clean up campaign against perceived wide spread corruption in public services. including the judiciary, a system of governance that is characterized by stability, transparency and accountability as well as the prevalence of law, order, and peace, the Nation of Fiji is still waiting for the remarkable transformation and reality of Voreqe Bainimaramas vision.
The interim regime should direct its ‘clean up campaign’ to make a full, extensive clean up after this disaster its PRIORITY. ALL infrastructures should be repaired and completed as quickly and successfully as possible to allow everyone and everything to move on and upward.
Filipe Bole would be well advised to ensure ALL students are able to study when school resumes on January 20, 2009 and to be able to get there safely. Instead of harping on about class sizes, make education another PRIORITY and hold off school fees, especially in the regions most affected by this crisis. The $9 million funding by the EU is more than sufficient to facilitate the education of every child in Fiji. These children are our future, please pay the teachers to give them a sound education first and foremost and scrap school fees altogether. ask an economist and accountant to explain how.
