Acting Prime Minister, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says he finds it highly despicable and undignified the way Voreqe Bainimarama who is an elected Prime Minister has been treated on social media and unfortunately some of the journalists are part of the problem in Fiji and in addition to this, some of the politicians or their relatives living offshore are also part of the problem.
He made this comment when asked in the press conference for a comment regarding a few New Zealand media reports falsely saying that the Prime Minister had passed away.
Sayed-Khaiyum says he was sent a post that declared the Prime Minister dead and another post said the PM had his surgery in Canberra.
