|Trade unionists Urai and Amanaki|
The Amanaki picture, sent to us with the caption Classified: The Royal Flash and Sleeping Banda, was taken at the FTUC biennial gathering earlier this year.
Rokoura's picture was just last week. The army goon, identified to bloggers via C4.5 revelations last year, was appointed to the Fiji rugby team on the directive of the Fiji Rugby Union chairman, Mosese Tikoitoga.
He is number two in Frank Bainimarama's inner gang after Ben Naliva and is Tikoitoga's eyes and ears on the ground since he's not travelling with the team to England, Ireland and Georgia. He has no experience in rugby, let alone Fiji rugby and the appointment has outraged rugby purists.
Rokoura was one of the army operatives behind the assault on FTUC national secretary, Felix Anthony, early last year and was fingered by Peter Usaia Waqatairewa from the Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement as having threatened him in 2009, via Bainimarama's email.
He was also Joni Madraiwiwi’s ADC, when he was still vice-president from 2004 to 2006. He went to Duntroon Military College in Canberra, the same military school attended by the butt-prodding Ben Naliva.
Editor's Note: Daniel Urai was listed in the recent petition by three high ranking chiefs and the four main political parties to the illegal president calling for a caretaker government to be appointed. We have been advised that while FTUC was part of the early discussions, Urai's spot is unsigned because the union's stance remains unchanged from an earlier decision not to be involved with any initiative that includes the Fiji Labour Party. The only union to sign the petition was FICTU.
