The sycophantic Leweni beats a hasty retreat after the paramount chief of Rewa reminded her province that they are rightfully due all manner of assistance because they have given, for the benefit of Fiji's development, their ancestral lands which includes the capital city of Suva.
Leweni is miserably inadequate in attempting to downplay the firm stand of Na Marama Na Roko Tui Dreketi, Ro Teimumu Kepa as a minority point of view.

The government has suspended the Rewa Provincial Council meeting.
Military spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Neumi Leweni says there was some confusion on an agenda drawn up to determine the province's stand on government.
"There were comments made by the paramount chief of Rewa and some other delegates and the government officials present at the time decided it was time to make the government stand known, that was when the meeting was informed it was now suspended."
Leweni adds the decision does not mean the government will stop development projects in the province.
"We don't want members of the public to suffer just because of the decisions of some of those in the council meeting that think otherwise."
Leweni says development work for the Rewa province will now be implemented by the Provincial and Divisional development board.
