Loyal Fijian is Right Here!

To all the loyal readers of Loyal Fijian : We are still here.

Yes, we have been a bit quiet of late, but not to worry, we are still here and plan on being around for a long time yet.

Loyal Fijian was started to combat the rumours being peddled by the HATE blogs, and the Loyal Fijian was the ONLY blog to present a balanced and impartial account.

Our objectives remain to argue for a fair, balanced and free media and arena for public discourse.

Our posts are not as frequent, but we will be here and publish as often as we can.

Conversations of Jone, Joe and Jaswant : Where is everyone Seinimili?

Another Friday, but something is amiss…..has been for a few weeks. The Friday night ritual that is the grog session at Jone's house has not happened for a few weeks.


Jone's text to Jaswant has gone unanswered and Joe is nowhere to be found. Here could they be?



Jone: (to his wife) I wonder if it was something I said


Seinimili: Yeah, when you grog dope, you don't know what you say


Jone: Seti woman, I expect reassurance not criticism from you OK. It's a rhetorical question anyway, not that you would know what that means.


Seinimil: (Quiet, doesn't respond)


Jone : Jaswant the faller always comes, even for a short while on Fridays. Last few weeks , I felt so lonely. Nothing to talk about.


Senimili : You can talk your wife and kids.


Joe : (Ignoring her) Isa, wonder what they are doing? Joe always has some good stories to tell. You know, the faller goes to all these lunches with all the big shot gang. He hears a lot of things.


Senimili : But you also "know a lot of people". There's nothing they know that you don't.


Joe: I know that, but I still make them feel important. Just to keep the news flowing. Especially Jaswant. He's tavale is connected.  A few bilo and he starts talking. Hehehehe


Seinimili : hehehhe And Joe?


Jone : Rerevaki sa raga o koya. I've heard stories that he was in the SAS.


Seinimili: You mean like in the movie


Jone: Yeah, just like the movies, only real. He thinks he can control us two. Jaswant thinks he is smarter than me. What do you think Seini my darling?


Seinimili: I married you didn't I.

Our Border Protection Gets a Boost

Fiji's ports and airports will be protected like never before. The Comptroller of Customs and Excise Jitoko Tikolevu has announed that 90 police officers have been appointed as Customs officers.

This follows a decision taken by Cabinet last year to strengthen the security at our entry points in light of increased attempts by organised crime gangs to use Fiji as a transit point.

Over the last few years, huge drug consignments have been seized in Fiji as well as factories to manufacture drugs have been set up by Asian crime gangs. In Laucala Beach, an Asian crime gang had hired three huge factories to manufacture amphetamines , which were to be shipped to Australia.
Fiji is preferred as a transit point as the thinking goes that consignments passing through Fiji will not receive the same attention as say a package coming from Colombia.
Crooks are always trying to outwit law enforcement and this measure is a step in the right direction to protect our borders.

The Police officers will be able to bring their crime fighting skills and knowledge and enhance the capability that we currently have at our borders.
