Council criticised

THE Nasinu Town Council was criticised for its inaction by residents of Narere as their homes were flooded on Thursday.

Resident Vani Shah said the council had not addressed the complaints she raised with them regarding drainage issues in the Narere Stage 2 area.

"I told them that they need to clear the rubbish, but they never did and now it's blocking our drains and water is coming into my house, this has never happened before," Mrs Shah said yesterday.

"All our neighbours' houses are flooded too because the drains all run through our neighbourhood, but this flooding has never been the case before."

In response, Nasinu Town Council special administrator Mosese Kama said: "It's not a matter to blame anyone for, it's just that they are squatters and they are situated unfortunately in a flood-prone area, so that's the problem.

"But we're working on doing something to make sure that it doesn't happen that way every time there's heavy rain."
