Traditional protocol not followed: Rt Naiqama

Traditional protocol not followed: Rt Naiqama Opposition leader Ratu Naiqama Lalabavu says the basic traditional protocol of qaloqalovi was not accorded to newly elected president Ratu Wiliame Katonivere.

Ratu Naiqama said the turaga Na Tui Macuata is one of the direct descendants of the ten chiefs that ceded Fiji to Great Britain in 1874.

He said he believes the role played by the chiefs then are still very much relevant today as a symbol of unity, hope and goodwill amongst people.

“The sentiments and suggestion that chiefs are irrelevant and should go and drink home-brew under the mango tree proves otherwise,” he said.

“The nation is in mid-course as it transitions from yesteryears into uncharted territory and totally uncertain and very bleak future.

“If we continue on the same path we have taken in the last 14 years without making the necessary structural adjustments, we will be worse off than before.

“The onus is on the Government of the day to start the ball running with genuine dialogue. The traditional ceremony should have, and must be accorded to the incoming office holder,” he said

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama in response said the problem with the iTaukei hierarchy is that some think they have exclusive knowledge of traditions and customs.

Bainimarama said he can well imagine how the Government would have been attacked had they omitted the qaloqalovi from President Konrote’s farewell.

He said the attacks would have been led by Ratu Naiqama.
