Village visit

MINISTRY of Women permanent secretary Doctor Josefa Koroivueta will visit Vanua Levu this week. He will visit the villages of Nabouono in Macuata and Nawailevu in Bua. At Nabouono Village, Dr Koroivueta will conduct the official declaration of 'Zero tolerance on violence against women and children'. He will also have a talanoa session with the women of Nawailevu and Bua (lomani koro). The Northern tour will be his first this year.

Second cruise liner

THE second cruise liner for Savusavu will arrive this weekend. Tourists are expected to be out in town by 8am for sightseeing programs. Stalls will also be built in the main street of the town to cater for handicraft makers who would sell items to the tourists. The visit to the shores of Savusavu has been so far labelled a success that has economically assisted women.

Praise for roadworks

THE work by road contractor Fulton Hogan Stabilisers has been applauded by road users in the North. The Fiji Times office has received calls and visits from impressed commuters who are happy with the work done on the Northern roads particularly in rural areas. Saqani villager Nepote Buka said the road condition in Saqani had improved a lot since Fulton Hogan took over.
