The RFMF Acting Commander Viliame Naupoto, confirmed this at a press conference last week.

“We have one recruitment that is ongoing.”

“It will be a mixture of officer cadets and we are trying to get a few people in for that and some of them will become engineers and some for the territorial force.”

“We are hoping that in the end we are able to recruit 200.”

The acting commander said that they will decide whether or not the RFMF will need more people this year or wait until 2017, after this recruitment.
