Kava drinking

SOME men were caught drinking kava at Navala Village in Ba earlier this week despite a ban imposed on the village for typhoid infection. Divisional health inspector Dip Chand said a request was put forward to the commissioner western's office for a police officer to accompany the medical team on their trips to the village.

Evac centres

THE six active evacuation centres in the west with 86 people are expected to close this weekend. The centres, which are school buildings, need to be cleaned up so they could be ready for the start of a new school year.

The evacuees are expected to return top their homes.

Water carts

WATER continues to be carted to the islands of the Yasawas, Malolo and Vatulele. Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki said water would continue to be a priority for the islands apart from food. Cdr Cawaki said a water barge was secured to transport water to each island.
