Crossing struggle

Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, March 21, 2014

CROSSING a river in their home wear every morning and changing into uniforms before walking to school has become a daily ritual for students of Korotari in Labasa.

The reverse occurs in the afternoons. The twice daily dips in the river, according to parents, is the result of gravel extraction carried out in the river a year ago.

Parent Mohammed Khalil said the situation was never an issue in the past because residents used to wade through shallow water.

He said a contractor had extracted gravel from the river a year ago.

Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said they would look into it.
