PREMIER PANGA DESCRIBED PAYMENT OF SHIPPING GRANTS AS “CORRUPT”
Guadalcanal Premier Stephen Panga described the alleged payments of shipping grants to Bradley Tovosia MP for East Guadalcanal and Joseph Onika MP for East Central Guadalcanal as corrupt and reaping off public funds.
Mr Panga claimed both MPs do not own boats, adding Mr Tovosia had taken over MV Solomone One from the province without any legal arrangements for its lease.
He adds, Mr Onika took over the maintenance of MV Kangava without proper legal arrangement with its owner, the Guadalcanal Province.
Mr Panga claimed the MV Kangava had been out of service for over three years and the shipping grant payment to both MPs can be best concluded as corruption.
