Commissioner Western

Vina'a va'alevu to the Commissioner Western for the job done during the recent floods Lautoka/Nadi/Rakiraki side of Viti Levu. Here are some comments from a blog about his task, well done.

Praise where it is due.
Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki deserves praise for his actions in the response to the recent floods.

I had the privilege to be present when he lost his temper with a collection of government officials that were causing the normal bureaucratic holdup in the aid. He told them to ignore all the rules and concentrate on getting the aid to those who they served.

He told them that anyone he found causing an obstruction to the aid would be dealt with severely.

While in normal times this might seem overly authoritarian he is operating under a declared emergency so has full control.

He has been working long hard hours and looks very ragged and tired.

He is the right man in the right job and deserves our praise and support.
