Village wants bylaws

ELDERS of Burenitu Village in Ra are hoping for the village bylaws to be implemented soon.

Village headman Jope Bavou said the regulations would reinstate respect and order in villages.

"Some of the young people come into the village drunk and although it happens randomly, we are concerned because these things are not supposed to be done in villages," Mr Bavou said.

"When we have village meetings, we sometimes call these young people where we tell them what and what not to do.

"We hope the bylaws will be implemented so it gives them a fair understanding that villages are meant to be respected and that there are certain things only that could be done here."

He also raised concerns on issues such as alcohol consumption in the village, women wearing trousers and men wearing caps and hats inside village boundaries.
