MOMENTUM FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CLEAN-UP GATHERING PACE?
Call to remove wreckage
“Farmers and fishermen coming in from the provinces to sell their produce and catch are calling on the responsible authorities to remove the two ship wreckage in front of the Central market and repair the wharves for proper use.
“The call was made through the Solomon Star North West Guadalcanal Stringer John Toki following what many farmers claimed as additional expenses on transport hiring from the main wharf to the Central Market.
“The two ships known as M.V Bikoi 11 and M.V Yandina have been washed ashore by strong winds and have been for the past years without nothing being done by responsible authorities to remove them.
Over the past years, former Member of Parliament for Aoke Langalanga Mathew Wale also questioned the legal framework as the number of wreckage increases without anything has been done to address them.”
