Roko Tui Namosi Resolves Tension

The Roko Tui Namosi Rupeni Kunaturaga has finally resolved the tension between the Namosi Development Company and the Provincial Council office.

Because of this tension he said the company was not able to hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) since it was established in 1995.

He said when he took office early this year and visiting the five districts he had heard from the people of the existing tension and they wanted the company’s AGM.

“I was able to resolve the tension and I called for an AGM, the first since 1995,” he said.

He said the company was in fact the financial arm of the Provincial Council.

The first AGM he said was held at the Ro Kuruduadua Complex on Wednesday after the provincial council meeting.

Company chairman Samisoni Tuilawaki thanked Mr Kunaturaga for resolving the tension.

When asked about the tension, he said this had happened from the past Roko Tui Namosi when they did not recognise the company.

“Sometimes they closed the office doors to board members,” he said.

“They were not given space in the office.”

He said they also had differences and no one wanted to listen.

Things he said had turned around when Mr Kunaturaga took office in January this year.

About the company he said they were leasing 80 acres of land in the highlands just for their yaqona plantation.

Just recently they harvested 123 yaqona plants and they got $11,000 from the sale.

Currently he said they have 11,000 matured yaqona plants that would be harvested next year.

”People are working on the farm and we’re spending $500 per week on the farm,” he said.

The company he said had the Namosi House in Suva rented by the Ministry of Health, the Ro Matanitobua House also on rent to Government.

“We also sell gravel at $9 per cubic metre.”

From the gravel royalty he said they had built a church costing them $300,000 at Nakavu.

“This is our show of support to the religious societies in the district.”

Mr Tuilawaki said at the moment they would not expand but concentrate to what they have got.
