WE have the protection of iTaukei land in our Constitution.

Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Disaster Management and Meteorological Services, Jone Usamate stated this in Parliament last week.

“We have, for the first time ever, share of royalties to iTaukei landowners,” Mr Usamate said.

“That is part of the reform. This is the Government that delivers for the people in this country,” he said.

“The kind of reform that we have, the people that were in Monasavu, they used to watch these electric poles going across, they said, “how come that electricity is not coming to us?”.

“It is through this Government that electricity is being provided to all of the people.”
