Unity Call For Naitasiri

The newly-appointed chairman of the Naitasiri Provincial Council, Alivereti Nabulivou has called on the people of Naitasiri to work together.

Mr Nabulivou made the plea during the Naitasiri Provincial Council meeting at the St Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Nausori yesterday.

“We see that other provinces are ahead with developments and not so much for Naitasiri. There are a lot of resources available in the province. What we need is to work together to try and develop and utilise it,” Mr Nabulivou said.
He said he was honoured that the Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama had faith in him and appointed him as chairman.

“This is the first time I’m taking up this role. I’m very  honoured.”

Mr Nabulivou called on guardians, parents and elders of the Naitasiri to work together and to help reduce the number of young people getting into criminal activities.

Meanwhile, Naitasiri will hold its Vakabulabula iTovo Vakavanua celebration (festival) at Syria Park in Nausori today.
President of the Naitasiri Province Women’s Association, Adi Lagamu Takiveikata said the event would include soli (pledges) handicraft and art and craft sales, food stalls and entertainment to raise funds for the province’s Scholarship Fund Project.

“The project is looked after by the association where women raise funds for our children in the province who are attending high school and universities,” Ms Takiveikata said.
Some of the issues discussed included the installation of an automated teller machine (ATM) at Vunidawa, the service provided at the Vunidawa Hospital, toilets to be built at Sawani Road junction and proper rubbishg disposal into the rivers and creeks from people living in Nasinu, Wakanisila, Kalabu Housing, Cunningham and Laqere.

Vunidawa Hospital Mortuary
Navuakece District representative Josua Muwai said the  mortuary at Vunidawa Hospital had not been working well recently.
“The cooler is not working to its highest standard because some of us have had problems when collecting bodies of our loved ones.
“We find that they are partly decomposed,” Mr Muwai said.
He said some of them had to bring bodies down to the Colonial War Memorial Hospital’s mortuary in Suva which was very costly.

Proper toilets to be built at Sawani
District representatives also highlighted the need to build proper restrooms at the Sawani junction.
Ratu Timoci Rokobukete said the junction was the main stop for people travelling to Naitasiri and to either Suva or Nausori.

Rubbish disposal
Waisea Sewabu of Navuso called for the proper disposal of rubbish especially from people living in Nasinu, Wakanisila, Kalabu Housing, Cunningham and Laqere whom he said had been dumping rubbish into the rivers and creeks.
He said the people of Kalabu fish in the Laqere River.
