Fiji’s i-Taukei Land Trust Board will review contracts of all their employees in a bid to root out “laziness and incompetence” and rid their workforce of corrupt practices.

Speaking during the opening of TLTB’s Annual Strategic Planning Workshop at the Warwick Resort, Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said laziness or incompetence will not be tolerated and that anyone who is corrupt will be found and dealt with.

“As your Prime Minister and Chairman of the Board, I urge each of you to reflect on how you can do your jobs better, not just for yourselves, but for the people you serve,” PM added.

His comments follow discovery of corrupt practices within the TLTB, abuse of office, cases of extortion and making false promises to landowners.

He said from now on promotion will be given on merit, initiative will be rewarded and additional benefit will be reserved for those whose performance sets them apart.

“You will be judged by current market and industry standards, not by who you know or how long you have been with the TLTB,” Bainimarama said.

In fact he said that this is one of the very basic reforms the Government is looking to implement in all Government bodies.

“We want to put our best foot forward. We need to put ordinary people first. We don’t want to tie them up in red tape, delay services to them because of incompetence, or place unnecessary hurdles in their way.”
