Villagers seek State assistance

VILLAGERS of Sese in Saqani, Cakaudrove, are pleading with the government to assist them with 10 new houses.

Two years ago the villagers collected one third of the housing cost as required by the government.

Speaking on behalf of the villagers, Osea Tulagi yesterday said they were still awaiting word from the government on such assistance.

He said they collected $40,000 in 2012 and when they approached government officials responsible, they were turned down.

Mr Tulagi claimed the officials declined to take the money and sent them back home.

He said they continuously visited the officials but was not given a satisfactory answer.

During a government roadshow in Nadogo, the villagers raised their concerns. Mr Tulagi said they had been told that the homes would be identified for assistance next year.

Acting Commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said the scheme was meant for people whose houses were deteriorating.
