Quick service delivery of developments carried out by the Government has been praised by the people of six villages of Tuvu district, Nadroga.
The villagers told the Minister for Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation, Dr Jiko Luveni, in Voua Village, that they were happy with the developments that have come their way.
Vatiliai Kasowaqa, the chairman of the village’s development committee, said the people of Tuvu district appreciated the numerous developments carried out in the district.
He said the Bainimarama Government had stood out from previous governments as far as delivery of service was concerned.
“The villagers appreciate the numerous developments carried out in the education sector. Road building and social welfare for the elderly are some of the programmes that really make this Government stand out from the previous ones.
“With the upcoming elections we will give our support to Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama, for this Government has walked the talk and our votes will go to him and his party,” Mr Kasowaqa reiterated. The president of the Togovere Women’s Club, Elenoa Lavaisioa said that after years of waiting, women and children in her village now had piped water and proper roads.
“There are around 200 people in my village and the women here depend on subsistence farming for their day-to-day living. Our women’s club has witnessed this Government fulfill the pending projects which was not delivered by the previous governments,” she said.
She said past governments were slow to react to their concerns.
Mrs Lavaisioa said: “For instance, we didn’t have proper water supply till 2008. We raised one third of the funds and it was when we approached this Government for assistance that we got the piped water that is accessed by 20 households in Togovere Village.”
Before, she said, they had to drink water from a creek.
“We are so happy that the Government has also built a road to our village. Children no longer have to walk one and a half miles to the main road to go to school because now the bus comes right to the village,” Mrs Lavaisioa said.
Meanwhile, Mr Bainimarama had publicly announced that if elected to lead the Government after the September elections, his Government would continue providing needed services for the people.
