Call to safeguard interests

LANDOWNERS of the proposed bauxite mine site in Dreketi want the iTaukei Land Trust Board to handle their lease and not the Land Use Unit under the Lands Ministry.

This was made known at a meeting in Nabiti Village last week where landowners of mataqali Serau expressed their desire to have the TLTB handle their lease issues because they were familiar with its procedures.

Mataqali head Aporosa Tuiloma said his members wanted TLTB to look after their lease, while members supported their chief informing government officials that they preferred the TLTB.

Macuata provincial officer Josefa Rokonai said the matter would be discussed with government departments.

He said the landowners' plea would be taken into consideration to ensure they were happy with the conditions and agreement.

Mr Rokonai also pleaded with government officials at the meeting to look after the interests of the landowners.

He said it was important to hear the landowners out and work closely with them in addressing their queries relating to land use issues.
