I have always had the view that in the Fiji context it would have to take a “righteous coup” to undo the wrongs of the coups of 1987 and 2000.
Contrary to what most politicians and academics believe, it would take decades and possibly a bloody civil war before any of the changes to Fiji’s cultural and political landscape can be effected.
The 1997 Constitution entrenched racist policies, empowering the few and neglecting the rights of the many. It was not a blueprint for nationhood.
Trying to bring about radical political, social and cultural shifts within the framework of a flawed constitution was always going to be like fornicating for virginity.
