The molvi (priest) of the Muslim community at Tabia Jame Mosque, Mohammed Khan now has a bigger and better home for him and his family, thanks to Government’s help.

The home was opened on Monday by the Minister for Agriculture, Rural development and Disaster Management Inia Seruiratu who was also chief guest in the community’s Prophet Muhammad’s birthday celebration.

Molvi Mohammed has been working in the mosque and around Tabia for 28 years.

“We used to stay in a very small quarter and the space was very small. We are very thankful to Government for the support,” Maulvi Mohammed said.

Opening the new home, Mr Seruiratu said Government would continue to build a better Fiji.

“Government continues to make sure that every ordinary citizen live in proper housing,” Mr Seruiratu said.

“I want to acknowledge the farming community in Tabia for the contribution they had done to the community and the country as a whole.”

He encouraged Tabia farmers to commit themselves to improve their businesses this year.

The house cost $60,000 where $12,000 was given by Government and the remainder was raised by the Muslim community of Tabia.
