From the Editor-in-Chief’s desk | Your May 30 briefing



STATESMAN, soldier and academic. Of all the accolades spent on him, one that has stood the test of time was Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna’s foresight that the Indian indentured labourers would become indelibly entrenched into Fijian society, and there was a need to ensure this was done as peacefully and as inclusively as possible.

In a lecture titled ‘Ratu Sukuna’s Three-Legged Stool Concept – Its Value for the 21st Century’, renowned academic and former permanent secretary Joji Kotobalavu articulated Ratu Sukuna’s visionary leadership and how he ensured Indian labourers who opted to remain in Fiji were given access to land, and how he personally travelled the 14 provinces to consult the iTaukei chiefs about the benefits of leasing their land. That’s the big news on the front page of The Fiji Times for Tuesday, May 30.
