Twenty soldiers from the Re­public of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) started distributing rations in Kadavu yesterday.

According to the military chief staff officer co-ordination, Captain Eroni Duaibe, the 20 soldiers ar­rived on the island on board the Lo­maiviti Princess II with the rations.

“They started distributing the ra­tions to those affected from today. They will return to Suva on Satur­day,” he said.

On the progress of cleanup work, Captain Duaibe said most of their work was completed. A group, he said, worked at the Ravitaki Health Centre. They also cleaned up at the Vunisea Health Centre.

The soldiers deployed to Kadavu will return to Suva via the Lomaiv­iti Princess II. Captain Duaibe said 13 soldiers with the Government as­sessment team would remain with the team. Edited by Jonathan Bryce
