Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama has assured the people of Moturiki Island the supply of clean drinking water to their village soon.

District representative from Moturiki, Sakiasi Karanivanua, raised the issue during a talanoa session with Mr Bainimarama at Navuloa Village, Ovalau yesterday.

A representative from the Water Authority of Fiji confirmed that work supplies from Suva such as pipes would be delivered to the village on Thursday.

Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation, Mereseini Vuniwaqa also urged recipients of the Social Pension, Care and Protection and Poverty Benefit schemes to update their information so they could still be eligible for the assistance.
