A resident of Malaita province says the Lands Ministry must become a corrupt-free organisation.
Speaking to SIBC News recently, William Gua says it’s time the Lands Minister delivers on his promise in Parliament to clean up the Ministry.
Mr Gua claims he is an eye-witness of corruption elements within the Ministry.
“We’ve been looking at it. Nothing has been done within the Ministry at this time. We still have a lot of rotten apples within the Ministry. There are People who come late all the time to the Ministry, lots of absenteeism. Nothing has been done so far. The question I want to raise with the Minister is what time they will start that clean-up. I was also assured by the PS for the same Ministry that they are going to do the job. Up until now, nothing has been done.”
Meanwhile, in an interview recently with SIBC News, the new Lands Commissioner Nelson Naoapu says the Lands Ministry is putting its house in order.
Mr Naopu says one of the first changes made is the establishment of the Lands board.
