A plea for food – Police step in to control situation in Nadi
13 June, 2021, 10:12 am
Residents currently on lockdown in a few settlements located beside Nawaka, Nadi took to the streets yesterday to voice their frustrations and their need for basic food items and groceries.
Police officers from Nadi had to step in to control the situation and reminded people their act was unlawful.
Food rations from the Government arrived a few hours after the protest was staged by the concerned residents.
Meanwhile, in a virtual conference on COVID-19, heads of political parties have called on the Government to pull its resources together to ensure people in lockdown areas are assisted.
