This is what it is all about for Bainimarama and his military regime - ONLY look after the ones who follow you blindly. For the rest they can bl.....y well starve!!
And the reason given by the military regime is that the money spent on food rations will go to schools. Well, if the children of Yasawa are starving, then going to school and expecting these children to perform well will be a lost cause. Because they might not make it to school in the first place because they are weak from lack of food.
And how long do short term seeds grow enough to be consumed? One day, one month? So, the people of Yasawa are expected to wait for that long to be fed!
The lack of human compassion is rather disturbing indeed!
