People’s Alliance Leader, Sitiveni Rabuka says Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama talks about building the seawall in Rabuka’s village and flying on his plane to go to America but he wants to tell Bainimarama that the FijiFirst Leader did not buy one single thing and that money is from the sweat and toils of the taxpayers of this country.

He highlighted this while responding to Bainimarama who had said that maybe Rabuka has been spending too much time dancing in New Zealand, Australia and the USA and forgetting that he is travelling in the new Fiji Airways plane, the plane that the FijiFirst government brought in.

Rabuka says Bainimarama wants to boast that he built a seawall in Namuka Village.

The People’s Alliance Leader says the seawall was repaired however he stresses that the young people from their village went to New Zealand to work on a farm and came back with the money to build it.

In response, Rabuka also says when he was the Prime Minister, Bainimarama’s village hall was built.

He says the taxpayers are tired of paying Bainimarama’s salary of thousands of dollars.

Rabuka says Bainimarama also boasts about introducing free education but he suffered from selective memory and conveniently forgot that he started fee free primary education during his term as the Prime Minister.

He says the education stakeholders like students, parents and teachers are suffering.
