SODELPA MP, Mosese Bulitavu has issued a public apology in regards to his comments that he made that the stabbing of a partner is a ‘vulagi’ or foreign way of doing things for the iTaukei and have been brought in by the descendants of indentured labourers from British India and that Indo Fijian women having extra-marital affairs is rife.
Bulitavu says that he apologises unreservedly to those who have been offended by his comments in particular to the women of Fiji and the Indo-Fijian community.
His apology comes after the Party President, Ro Filipe Tuisawau ordered Bulitavu to put his post down and apologise to the nation especially to those that were offended by his post.
