Political waves

Malakai Naduva, Malau Rd, Labasa
Friday, July 01, 2016

There is a ship called SODELPA and there was a ship called SVT.

I believe SVT sunk beneath heavy political waves and turbulences and is no more.

SODELPA is encountering the same course which sank the SVT and is in the mid of political waves and turbulences.

Its captain is trying her very best to keep the ship afloat.

The ship's mate and some crew members, seeing the dilemma and fearing for the passengers decided to change the captain and find a new one who may sail the ship out of danger.

Five captains were short-listed. The SODELPA mates and crew decided to trust the former old captain of SVT even though his ship had sunk.

The old captain was tasked to map out a new course for the ship and keep it afloat.

As tasked, the old captain decided to merge with other ships to keep the SODELPA afloat.

Immediately, the captains of the other ships showed their discontent and distanced their ships from SODELPA since the old captain was the one who started it all, the political waves and turbulences.

Fearing for their future, the former captain, some crew and passengers of SODELPA decided to abandon ship.

The old captain is determined that he will keep SODELPA afloat because as soon as he took the helm, huge political waves had entered the ship.

I believe other ships, their captains and passengers are watching with one question in their mind.

Will the old captain be able to sail SODELPA out of troubled waters?

Only time will tell.
