TRADITIONAL leaders in the Bua province have been reminded of their roles which should be built on integrity.

Bua Provincial Council chairman Alipate Radrodro made the comment after district reps complained of a slow response towards the provincial levy.

The district rep of Lekutu, Suliasi Saraqia told the meeting that villagers had not completely given their levies.

He said collecting levies from the villagers was a difficult task as most do not respond.

Mr Saraqia said this trend started 2007.

Mr Radrodro said if they led their people with integrity, then they would find no problems with certain issues like the collection of levies.

He said if traditional leaders set the example of strong leadership, then their people would follow suite and issues like levies would not be a challenge.
