Call Bainimarama

This article reads like a bad joke and it would be so funny if it weren't so tragic.

Ironically it reeks of desperation of an individual so desperate for validation, that he as self-proclaimed Prime Minister of Fiji, is willing to prostitute his cellular phone details (national security risks be damned) just to hear complaints about civil servants.

Meanwhile the Public Service Commission that is supposed to managing all civil servants is probably in the dark (as per usual). 

Interestingly the unions that civil servants join, like the Fiji Public Service Association has been sub-par thus far in effectively protecting the interests of their members.

This latest gaff is exactly like those desperado signs that say "call me for a good time".

Call me or text me says PM

Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says the public can call him or text him if they are not happy with the services being provided to them by a civil servant or government department.

Speaking to the people of Nakalawaca in Tailevu, Bainimarama says people can call him on 9905798 or text him on 01 if they believe civil servants are not delivering to the best of their ability.

He says three of his senior military officers are on standby for such complaints and all texts that come through on 01 will be received by them.

Bainimarama says civil servants today should be providing the best services ever - and if a civil servant cannot provide their best to the people they will be removed.

I think Baini was thinking along these lines when he came up with the idea to leave his number as a complaints hotline....Only thing is as with every other 'mind blasting' idea he's had someone else is doing the work.

I was watching Channel 7 this morning and Fiji was mentioned as one of the corrupt countries abusing Australian Aid. Interesting indeed!
