Rising sea level

NAIDIRI and Malomalo villagers in Nadroga are concerned with the rising sea level that threatens their safety. Malomalo Village headman Eku Ratu said the villagers would plant trees on the coastline to prevent the rising sea level. Mr Ratu said the long term plan was to relocate the villages because of climate change.

Village clean-up

VUNITOGOLOA villagers in Ra conducted a village clean-up campaign over the weekend. Organised by the Health Ministry, awards were given to house owners that won the cleanest house and compounds. The objective of the clean-up campaign was to promote healthy living in villages.

West teachers

DIVISIONAL education officer West Lorima Voravora thanked the teachers in the west for a successful year of service. Mr Voravora said despite the devastation made by the two floods that also halted education in the division, teachers successfully completed the required syllabus for the year.

Relocation talks

COMMISSIONER Western Commander Joeli Cawaki will meet the Navutu, Nasinu and Nasoata settlers this week. The settlers met and voiced their concerns with Local Government Minister Colonel Samuela Saumatua earlier this week. Cdr Cawaki said the government wanted those settlers to be relocated since most had been moved to Drasa. "We will discuss the issue with the settlers soon," said Cdr Cawaki.
