Call To Implement PRB Tenant Agreement

The caretaker for the Public Rental Board flats in Mead Road, Nabua, says the recent ‘bloody attack’ calls for stronger implementation of tenancy agreement.

Asalusi Daunakelo, the assistant chairman of the seven PRB blocks said the attack on Sunday should never have happened.

It begs the question of safety and the flat owner of where the incident occurred, should be evicted because he supposedly held a drinking party there, he said.

“Our agreement say that we are not allowed to drink inside the flats,” he said.

“While most are following this there are a number of tenants that continue with this and this is the root cause of the problem mostly.”

Mr Daunakelo is also a tenant.

“The PRB needs to implement harsher laws and also be vigilant in these types of issues here, when one does not adhere to agreements they should be asked to vacate, in that way we will ensure that we are having those that are not breaking the law,” he said.

Public Rental Board Acting General Manager Patrick Veu said no tenant was allowed to drink alcohol inside any of their flats as stipulated in the tenancy agreements.

The Minister of Housing and Local Government Premila Kumar said she could not divulge as investigations were continuing.

Three people were injured in the incident while three people are in custody.
