Bylaw execution difficult

Ropate Valemei In Levuka
Thursday, July 31, 2014

ONE of the challenges the Lomaiviti Province faces is the implementation of bylaws in some districts.

Many districts and representatives are waiting for the bylaws that have been implemented by the iTaukei Affairs Board," said roko tui Lomaiviti Penijamini Velitokaduadua.

The issue was raised at the Lomaiviti Provincial Council meeting at Nasova in Levuka.

Mr Velitokaduadua said representatives have been advised that since the boundary for each village in Lomaiviti had been surveyed, the bylaws would soon follow.

According to him, the iTaukei Affairs Board had requested time to organise themselves in marking the village boundaries before legislation comes into effect.

"Some have been marked, some have relied on the old ones. Some villages have moved to other lands beside villages and they have been advised to seek approval first from the landowners before they move out and extend their village boundaries."

He said there were five issues brought up at the meeting.
