Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On
Government officials facing transport problems in the Bua Province will soon have their troubles addressed.
Prime Minister Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama heard from villagers in the province that it was difficult for police officers in Nabouwalu to get around because they had no vehicle.
This is a very good sign.
Now, our Namulomulo community post does not have a vehicle. Police officers have to walk to go and attend to reports. If victims have a vehicle they usually pick the police officer(s). And there are times when they go on community visits they simply walk.
While walking is healthy sometimes transport is better. We have a derelict vehicle parked at the post which has seen better days and in my opinion it should be removed to the junk yard because its an eyesore and taking up space.
On behalf of the officers and the community at large I request the Honorable Prime Minister to please also visit us. Namulomulo, Solovi and others areas have lots of citizens who can't wait to go and vote.
It would be nice to have a visit from government officials, at least something will be done to the road. And please also come and see the officers quarters, it could do with a little repair.
