MOI Constituents curious over vessel
Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 8 November 2018
“THE Malaita Outer Islands (MOI) Constituency is still without a vessel although their Member of Parliament (MP) Martin Kealoe had received $4.2 million eight years ago.
“And this had prompted constituents to question and raised their concerns to this paper by asking the government through Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MID) and the MP when the vessel will arrive.
“Parliament will dissolve next month and most of the MPs will become ordinary citizens as of 17th December.
“The Solomon Star has cited the shipping grant documents that confirmed the MP had received a total of $4.2 million from the shipping grant during his two terms in parliament.
“According to the audit report from the Auditor General it shows that in 2013 the MP received $3million under the shipping grant and again in 2015-2016 he furether received an additional $1.2 million.
“However, since then nothing was seen by constituents.”
