GOV’T TOLD TO INVOLVE LANDOWNERS IN ITS LAND POLICY
An executive member of the Tandai Tribal Landowners Association wants the Government to include them in the Committee that will look into the Honiara Town Boundary.
Association Secretary Michael Ben told SIBC News, Tandai landowning tribes, sub-tribes and House of Chiefs expressed full support for the Government’s customary and alienated land reform policy.
Mr Ben however said, they are appealing to the Government to include them in the Committee which the Prime Minister told Parliament will be appointed to look into the issue.
Meanwhile, the Tandai landowning tribes and the House of Chiefs have completed demarcating and identifying customary land boundaries that were turned into alienated land during British Solomon Islands Protectorate.
These include land from Ruaniua Plantation to Foxwood.
Michael Ben says the report will soon be distributed to the Prime Minister’s office and other Government Ministries.
SIBC News understands, a two day workshop involving all stakeholders concerning the Honiara Town Boundary will be held by the government next month.
