What would Ratu Sukuna think?
They are not spending any money this year to celebrate Ratu Sukuna Day, says the Interim Government, but some of the schools are doing their own celebration, such as at the secondary school named after him. This gentleman, Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna was a leader, a mentor, an initiator of change to land leasing during the 1940s, a system that has continued to this day through the Native Land Trust Board.
I wonder what he would think of all the undermining of the Fijian institutions that is going on these days?
