VILLAGERS of Lomaloma in Macuata want politicians to walk their talk.

This was made known at a Peoples Democratic Party meeting last week.

During the meeting the villagers said they had grown tired of false promises made by former politicians who visited the village.

But party president Lynda Tabuya assured villagers that her party would do their best to help the villagers.

She said the first thing they noticed was the absence of electricity in the village which sat by the Labasa Savusavu Highway.

Ms Tabuya said the party would also look at addressing other needs of villagers.

Party member TJ Loloma told the villagers that he would work with youths in the area.

Empowering youths to do better in life and afford a living through farming root crops was another area he would pursue with the young people.

"We need to work together to empower them and ensure that they continue to earn an income through farming as they have a lot of available land," Mr Loloma said.

"There is potential for developments in this area of Lomaloma and it just needs to be tapped.

"So we will work with these people because we want them to live a comfortable life that they will all enjoy."

Mr Loloma added that his experience in working with the youths would benefit the programs targeted for the young people in the North.

"We need to make use of our young people, their talents and ideas they have because they are also capable leaders."
