Still without a job

Sacked Hot Bread Kitchen employee Alumita Waqatairewa has ended speculation that she is back at work.

She is still at home and has not heard anything.

Her case is now before the Ministry of Employment where she lodged her grievance claiming that she was unfairly dismissed.

Minister next stop

Waterways and Environment Minister Mahendra Reddy could soon be getting a visit from a group of disgruntled Rewans about a planned dredging project in the Rewa River. They are escalating their grievance because they are not happy with the way signatures have been obtained.

The method is in direct contradiction to a resolution made by delegates at an environment and natural resources workshop recently. It was decided that there should be public consultation with the villagers first before the issue goes to a management committee appointed by the villagers of professional experts to vet all proposals.

Now they are asking questions why the village delegates were taken on a tour of the Rewa River before they were asked to sign on the dotted line.

It was claimed that the signatures were for approval to obtain an environmental impact assessment report. BTL understands that even for EIA, it must be approved by the ordinary villagers before any work starts.

So we will see what Mr Reddy tells the group.
