A team headed by the Commissioner Western is touring the Nadroga and Navosa Province to inspect how villages benefitted from various government projects.

Commander Joeli Cawaki has been in Sigatoka over the past few days checking on various development projects.

"We just want to make sure that our investments are getting its return of the profits and is bearing fruit for the people of each village that we have worked with," said Cdr Cawaki.

"We are checking all of our ongoing projects and some of those that were done a couple of years ago just to make sure that the people are benefiting from them.

"If we build a bridge for a village or make new roads, we want to see what that has done for the villagers.

"We want to see for ourselves what sort of benefits they have gained from these government projects," he said.

Cdr Cawaki said his team would also meet village heads during the tour.

He said the meeting with chiefs and village headmen was to establish the needs of their villagers.

"We want to find out if they need us to do something for them or what sort of problems they may be facing for us to help them with."
