CHIEFLY CLAIMS RESOLVED

It can be done. The Roko Tui Nadroga/Navosa was able to resolve a case whereby two clans were disputing the Tui Nadrau case. He was helped by the iTaukei Lands and Fisheries Commission.

BTL has been reliably informed that the two clans were making claims not in accordance with the Register of Titles (Vola Ni Kawa Bula).

Seriously, those claiming the chiefly titles should sit together with the Roko Tui and commission officials and raise their issues before the installation. Be reminded that no one can change the records in the book of record, the VKB.

UNIFIJI CONCERNS

Jagdish Chand, a Vice President of the Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, has written to the University of Fiji Council expressing his concerns about the adverse media publicity over administrative issues.

He said in his letter that he would not be able to attend the big meeting planned on September 22.

The Sabha, one of the largest Hindu organisations in the country, owns and operates UniFiji: More about his concerns tomorrow.

LANDMARK RESOLUTION

A landmark resolution was achieved at the Rewa and Vutia tikina meeting on the preservation and protection of natural resources in their districts.

All developments in the province that impact the environment and natural resources must now go through new committees set up by the Vanua which would undergo a vetting process with the membership of the vanua.

Previously, investors used to go straight to the heads of yavusa or tribes and the Roko Tui Dreketi.

It is understood the “bottom up” approach has replaced the “top down” system used in the past.

This is designed to empower ordinary Rewans to make decisions on projects that affect their environment. It follows a BTL revelation about dredging in the Rewa River.

The meeting at Lomanikoro, Rewa, was closed by the Opposition leader Ro Teimumu Kepa in her capacity as the Marama Bale Na Roko Tui Dreketi, paramount Chief of Rewa and Burebasaga Confederacy.
