Bainimarama fooled by Canadian ‘Woman of the Year’

September 24, 2015

Frank Bainimarama poses with Annie
A Canadian radio host fooled Frank Bainimarama into presenting her with a ‘Woman of the Year’ plaque that he and his staff hadn’t even checked for authenticity.
The plaque hailed Annie Ji (Katherine) as Fiji ‘Ambassador’ and ‘the voice of Fijians in Canada.’
Unknown to Bainimarama, Annie Ji had no connections and had come up with the gong her self – as a prank.
The ‘prestigious’ award was made to the con artist during Bainimarama’s August Fiji First Party fundraiser to Vancouver.
Annie Ji was even presented the gong at Bainimarama’s farewell dinner in Surrey, by Fiji’s coup leader himself.
The disingenuous former radio host had approached two Canadian MPs plus the organsiers of Bainimarama trip as part of the con.

According to the Asian Star, Annie Ji duped local MPs Jinny Sins and Sue Hammell into attending the event, telling them the Prime Minister of Fiji had initiated the award.

Bainimarama presented her with the gong with no questions asked.
The story was exposed by the Vancouver based paper, the Asian Star, which reported that Bainimarama actually thought he was going to be presented with the plaque!
The paper says the con was picked up by a sharp eyed photographer and TV producer, who took a close up photo of the plaque and wondered about the misspelling of the word ‘Embassador’.
Bainimarama’s trip was organised by Netani Gucake and Bobby Naicker and questions remain about the estimated $162,000 that was raised.
Coup4.5 has also been told that a group of Fijian women brought in to perform the meke at the Fiji Day event have been abandoned and can’t get home.
The local Canadian MPs are meanwhile furious at being duped while the organisers say they’ve been told Annie is sick and has had a stroke.
Annie ji Singh was a host at the Radio Fiji Mirchi station in Surrey, but reportedly quit recently.
A spokesperson at the station says they don’t know anything and to ‘Ask Annie’.

FijiLeaks reports Ro Kepa and Naiqama telling Bainimarama to “Stop making allegations against SODELPA and face the brunt of the law for his own coup and treason’.

Frank Bainimarama committed sedition, treason, torture, rape, lying, corruption and murder during 2000 to 2015.  Bainimarama and Khaiyum  rigged the 2014  elections to ensure they remain inPOWER and out of prison. BUT Bainimarama wants the world, and certainly the people of Fiji, to believe that his record is not blood stained, that his motives are noble and that he is nothing but a selfless servant of the higher cause of a pure Fiji. But Bainimarama’s  actual record of what he said and did (or did not do) tells another story.

Bainimarama’s actual narrative is filled with lies, paranoia, betrayals and self aggrandizement, aCRIMINAL escaping from the law while attacking and accusing others of crimes that Bainimarama is guilty of.  In Frank Bainimarama’s lunatic mind, his shit does not stink.

RESIGN, you incompetent Minister of Finance: Ratu Isoa Tikoca explains why he called for the resignation of Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum in Parliament

August 30, 2015



<span “font-size:14.0pt;=”” font-family:”arial=”” narrow”,”sans-serif”;mso-fareast-font-family:”times=”” roman”;=”” mso-bidi-font-family:arial;mso-bidi-font-style:italic”=””>”TODAY in a point of order, I called for the immediate resignation of the Minister of Finance, Hon. Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum. While I delivered my Point of Order, my mic was turned off. I took my seat after finishing delivering my appeal for the Minister of Finance to vacate his office

<span “font-size:14.0pt;=”” font-family:”arial=”” narrow”,”sans-serif”;mso-fareast-font-family:”times=”” roman”;=”” mso-bidi-font-family:arial;mso-bidi-font-style:italic”=””>This was following a order by the Speaker of the House on the 27/08/15 for the House to sit privately, strangers be ejected and Hansard not publish the secret discussions about the state of Fiji’s Economy.

<span “font-size:14.0pt;=”” font-family:”arial=”” narrow”,”sans-serif”;mso-fareast-font-family:”times=”” roman”;=”” mso-bidi-font-family:arial;mso-bidi-font-style:italic”=””>In my point of order, made to parliamentarians today, I demanded an explanation into public utterances made in the media by the Minister and his Permanent Secretary on Global Bonds and Loans.

The fact is in the 2015 Budget estimate a deficit of $363.5 million was projected, but this relies on the sale of state assets of $507.3 million and there is no sign of that happening for the 2nd year in a row. So our deficit will increase to $870.8 million. That’s just $129 million short of a billion dollars. So add to that the $US250 million that the PS Finance spoke of in June that is due next year, then we are looking at a $1.4 billion debt for all of the Governments excesses over the past few years that our young people today will have to pay.

There is also the $150 million in un-presented cheques and the unaccounted for the $100 million expenditure.

Going into the 2016 Budget discussions, we cannot have the office of the Minister of Finance filled by a man who cannot give real solutions to our economic woes. A man who can’t face the Nation and openly talk about the reality of the Economy – and has instead ordered the representatives of the People to NOT INFORM the People of the facts.”

Nepotism in Bainimarama’s Fiji

August 27, 2015

Fiji’s self-appointed and megalomaniac AG, Kahiyum, stated [Fiji Times Aug 21 2015] that NEPOTISM still exists in most businesses and State-owned enterprises, claiming that …  human resources personnel would hire family members for the job within.
According to Khaiyum, there is a need to have a transparent process of selection of employees.    Really?!!   Khaiyum and Bainimarama have hired their unqualified family and friends to top jobs.

Khaiyum made the comments at the 2015 Certified Practicing Accountants (CPA) Congress in Nadi.  Khaiyum’s comments clearly highlights his “two-faced” nature!

Fiji’s dictator and self-appointed PM, Frank Bainimarama, appointed his unqualified and clueless family members to top jobs.  This includes:

  • His brother Meli, WITH NO EXPERIENCE, as High Commissioner to Malaysia
  • His daughter, Litiana, WITH NO EXPERIENCE or clue, is CEO of The Fiji Sports Council
  • His daughter, Rubyann, WITH NO EXPERIENCE is Manager of the National Net Ball Team
  • His brother in law, Francis Kean, who only served a few months of his manslaughter prison sentence, was reappointed  Commander of the Navy when NO CONVICTED CRIMINAL is allowed to be an officer in the Navy.  Kean was later promoted to Permanent Secretary with the Public Service Commission when NO CONVICTED CRIMINAL is allowed to serve as PS under PSC rules
  • The dictator then gave his wife’s brother, Francis Kean, a MASSIVE PAY RISE in November 2013.

The dictator Bainimarama, also claimed a few perks, including:

  • Million Dollar Salary
  • Millions to fund his jet set overseas holidays
  • $200,000 Back Pay Scam
  • No investigation into CRW deaths
  • No investigation into his treasonous actions
  • Escaped Prison for treachery by abrogating the Constitution.

Khaiyum also gave perks to his family:

  • Brother Riyaz, runs FBC the propaganda arm of the regime
  • He is paid over $200k
  • FBC has borrowed over $20m from the Fiji Development Bank and it can’t even pay back the interest. Aiyaz got the gogovernment to guarantee the loan and insists all government departments spend most of their marketing budget with FBC.
  • Aunty Nur Bano Ali got over $500k for a consultancy project on Rewa Dairy. She also takes a commission / handling fee for processing the junta’s million dollar salaries which are handled by her firm. Overseas investors looking to work with the dictatorship must use her firm as consultants
  • Khaiyum also pays himself Million Dollar Salary and receives back-handers [bribes] from various companies including the company that installed new FBC transmission equipment for over $5m
  • Received a bribe from Tappoos who brought his house for 3 times its value.

Soldiers deployed to find alleged firearms

August 20, 2015

One hundred and forty soldiers are now assisting police to find firearms that apparently were going to be used to form an independent state in Fiji. Over 60 people have so far been arrested in the Western Division on sedition and inciting political violence charges.

The arrests follow claims of military-style training in Ra province.There are claims that a former British army officer has been secretly running the military-style training camps in several villages and this training involved firearms. Now the military has used Section 131 of the botched Constitution to allow soldiers to search for the firearms which they believe has been hidden away.
Coup4.5 has been told the soldiers are driving around in Budget rental cars in Ra and Tavua looking for the firearms. Meanwhile the Public Accounts Committee is still waiting for answers as to the whereabouts of $100 million dollars dispensed in the last year.
When questioned, the Finance Ministry told the committee they were not in a position to tell them where this money went to. The money was put into a fund called Head 50, where ministries apparently could dip into if they needed extra money.

It seems there are no receipts or record of which ministry or who took what amount to date.

Key player behind Bainimarama money making excursion to Canada named

August 8, 2015

The man believed to be responsible for getting Frank

Netani Gucake (left) in Fiji in June.

Bainimarama to Canada is Netani Gucake, who worked for the Fiji Sun in the 80s and 90s.

Gucake is now working for the church and the organisation Alpha International, a Christian based group that donated a container load of soup packets to the Fiji Corrections Services recently.

Sources say Gucake is the prime mover behind Bainimarama’s week-long trip, rallying business and community.

They also he roped in one Bobby Naicker, who paid all flight and hotel expenses for Bainimarama and wife, Mary.

Netani Gucake is understood to have been behind the of recruiting of Fijian students to attend a College in Canada, with one source claiming he got a ‘huge cut from the College while charging students consulting fees as well’.

Bainimarama will be attending at least six to eight events in Canada, with tickets ranging from $25 to $350 per person.

Last night local Canada time he attended a dinner at the home of one Peter Raju, where $250 tickets were the going rate.

The isa lei lunch at cost of $125 per person in Surrey is to be held tonight local time and people are paying $50 to get in.

Tomorrow, during the day he is attending an open air meeting where former Fijians have been charged large sums to put up tents and stalls.

Saturday afternoon and night has been reserved for Fiji Muslims and the Muslim supporters of Bainimarama led by one Mr Yasin are coughing up handsomely to meet with him.

On Sunday Bainimarama will be officially cutting the ribbon of a real estate office and attending a luncheon in a parking lot. The cost is $35 per person.

Several readers have written to Coup 4.5 asking “So who is collecting all the money and where are the profits going?”

The Fiji Sun has today run a story saying Bainimarama has invited Fijians in Canada to invest back home saying, “You deserve the opportunities Fiji now offers” and promising “peace and prosperity.”

The same story mentions Peter Raju describing him as a Fijian businessman from the Canadian Duty Free Distributors in Richmond, BC.

EXPOSED: Bainimarama to fundraise and meet Muslim Community

August 6, 2015

EXPOSED: Bainimarama to fundraise and meet Muslim Community

It says he’s chief guest at the Fiji Day Celebrations but what is the real motive for Frank Bainimarama’s trip to Vancouver?

The answer lies in the programme for the celebrations.

On Saturday 8th August Canadian time, Bainimarama will meet the Muslim Business Council. The programme is littered with events but does not state any other official meeting with any other business organisation.

On Friday 7th August Canadian time, there is a red carpet gala dinner. There will be 200 tables and each table will have 10 people. The cost of the tickets? $50 Canadian.

On Sunday 9th August there is an Isa Lei Night, with tickets at $35 Canadian.

We believe both the dinner and Isa Lei night are sponsored.

So if the dinner is sold out, there will be 2000 people; 200 tables x 10 persons. This means $100,000 Canadian – the equivalent to $162,000 Fiji Dollars – will be raised.

While the former Fiji residents living in Vancouver have paid airfares for Bainimarama, it is not clear who has paid airfares for Mary Bainimarama.

Obviously, Bainimarama has already received per diem for the trip, paid by the taxpayers.

This trip to Canada looks very much like a personal trip with

shades of Bainimarama’s one-time Robin Hood Mahendra Chaudhry’s fundraising expeditions after the 2000 coup.
See the programme above for yourself.

Also an advertisement and a message from one Shalendra Kumar, obviously for a souvenir magazine.

See for yourself.
