Malaita Premier, Peter Chanel Ramohia has reminded the people of Suafa and Adaua in North Malaita that Suafa bay has been earmarked for major projects in Malaita Province.
Premier Ramohia made the statement in light of the incident that occurred at Suafa last weekend, resulting in the death of a person.
Ramohia told SIBC News in an interview, Suafa bay is an important project site for Malaita and such incidents would only bring disrepute to the province.
“Suafa area is an important project site for Malaita Provinceearmarked by the National Government for Malaita projects, but when such incidents occurred they create a bad reputation for our project site and also for us Malaita, and that is why I am making this call and I think it’s time we address these issues and resolve them, together with our community leaders and the police so that we can live in peace as we Malaitans are peace-loving people.”
SIBC News understands Auki police are on the ground to ensure the situation is under control.
