TC Yasa-stricken villagers of Cogea, Wainunu in Bua on Vanua Levu will soon move to their new village site.

These villagers lost their homes to TC Yasa when it hit Vanua Levu in December 2020.

Village headman Atekini Nairibuli thanked the Government for its assistance, especially when villagers would not be paying a single cent for this new site.

Fiji’s Acting Minister for Rural Development Jone Usamate commissioned the ground-breaking ceremony at the new site that sits along the main road towards Daria Village.

“We witness the Government’s commitment in ensuring that villagers of Cogea turn a new page towards a new direction,” Mr Nairibuli said.

A total of 40 houses will be built at the new site.
