There will be no coup come 15 November in Fiji.
This was FijiFirst General Secretary Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum’s statement during the party’s family fun day in Labasa.
Sayed-Khaiyum says he heard this rumour of a coup happening a day after election, which is not true.
“We were in the West the other day and somebody told us that there’s going to be a coup, so November the 15 there will be coup, so people are going around buying lots of rice, sugar and storing up their houses. Please don’t believe it. I know there’s a rumour here in Labasa too, they say there’s going to be a coup. There’s going to be no coup.”
Sayed-Khaiyum adds that there’s another rumour that Muslims are taking over and reiterates that these are complete lies.
Sayed-Khaiyum told the people of Labasa that all they have to do is focus on the real issues.
He said that doesn’t mean that everyone is called Fijian, Itaukei land, culture and religion will be taken away.
Sayed-Khaiyum mentions that Fijian simply mean common and equal citizenry to be united.
