The Wainisavulevu Weir Project will benefit the whole of Fiji, not only the people of Naitasiri, says a landowner.

Solomoni Naqa said: “We’re not here to stay for a long time, but our future generations will and this project will help our environment and we all are winning from it.

“We are also very grateful to the Prime Minister to come all the way here and listen to our concerns.

“There have been a lot of uncertainty with the land issues and he has addressed them and we are very happy.”

Mr Naqa said they were also grateful to Fiji Electricity Authority for providing the villagers with job opportunities.

“During the construction phase, some people were employed and that helped us a lot considering we are in the highlands,” he said.

Other landowners shared the same sentiments. Alivina Robara was very pleased with the development that had taken place.

“This is the first time for some of the villagers to come up here and it is so rewarding to see our land being developed into something so great that will benefit us all,” she said.

“We are very happy with the work that has been put in by the Government and FEA and we like to thank them for the great work.”


Early education

The Ministry of Education has granted a request by the Matawailevu Village for a kindergarten in the Naitasiri highlands.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama said the school would be funded by the Prime Minister’s Office.

These discussions took place during the talanoa session at the commissioning of the Wainisavulevu Weir Raising Project yesterday.

A request was also made for a bridge to be built at Waibasaqa Village and electricity for Naikurukuruvakatini Village.
