The iTaukei Affairs roadshow in Navua has received a positive feedback.

Ravuama Tuivanua, 78, said the iTaukei Affairs roadshow for Namosi and Serua, which started yesterday at Ro Matanitobua House in Navua, was a blessing for the iTaukei people.

The Namelimeli villager said since the establishment of the iTaukei Affiars Board, its staff just sat in their office in Suva and waited for the people to come to them.

“They have never come down to the people to serve,” Mr Tuivanua said.

“Now they have come to serve the people in our province.”

He said yesterday he was at Ro Matanitobua House on another business, but he left that aside and visited the roadshow to arrange for his birth certificate.

“I have got my birth certificate and the service was quick. I’m going back to Namelimeli to tell the villagers of the free services offered at the roadshow.”

Mr Tuivanua said today he would be meeting with staff of the TLTB business arm at the roadshow to discuss his mahogany plantation. He has more than 2000 mahogany trees, which were ready for harvest.

Some companies have visited him but he said he would make a decision on the sale of his mahogany after his meeting with TLTB.

Aselemo Vakatori, 65, from Namosi Village was also at the roadshow to get birth certificates for him and his wife.

“I got them within less than 10 minutes and I really appreciate the service offered to me,” he said.

The chairman of the Namosi Provincial Council, Ro Romanu Matanitobua, said he would invite the roadshow team to be at the Namosi Day in August at the Namosi Secondary School.

Meanwhile, the deputy Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of the iTaukei Affairs, Saimoni Waibuta, said their staff would attend to and clarify any concerns raised by the public during the roadshow.

Mr Waibuta said the first roadshow at Nabukaluka Village in Naitasiri was a success and hoped it would continue.

He said all services provided by the ministry would be available at the roadshow.

The objective of the roadshow is to bring service to the people.
