Ratu Sukuna, even as a decorated and hailed French Foreign legionnaire and traditional chief of high rank would not have dared to even think about imposing his view on others.
This has been highlighted by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Professor Biman Prasad while speaking during the Leadership Conference which is part of Ratu Sukuna Day celebrations.
He says as the Great Council of Chiefs Review team do their careful work, he is asking people to help them and put their energy towards this mammoth task.
Professor Prasad says for example, the iTaukei governance structure has been carried on the shoulders of iTaukei men aged 21-60 from every province with an annual levy for a very long time.
He says that was set out in the iTaukei Affairs Act 1944 Regulations.
Professor Prasad says that levy or "provincial rate" is almost like an additional tax that targets only able-bodied and productive iTaukei males.
The Deputy Prime Minister asks that in this current era of human rights and gender equity - is this fair and right.
He is asking people to let their thoughts be known to the GCC Review team.
