Council raises water concerns and general health

Jone Kalouniviti
Wednesday, February 26, 2014

THE issue of access to clean drinking water and free education were the main topics highlighted at the Nadroga district council meeting.

Nadroga provincial administrator Peni Koro said: "We have completed the meeting with 17 tikina and now have five to go. These were the topics most people raised.

"This has been the overall concern for the general health of all, especially the children, to have in place a permanent structure for this.

"For many it is to do with the intermittent supply, which has resulted in them sourcing water from the river and collecting rain water when they need to."

Mr Koro said apart from the need for clean drinking water, the government's new approach on free education was well received.

"Particularly, since Nadroga is made up of largely farming communities, so the free education program has really assisted them greatly this year."
