"Investigations reveal that Water Authority Management have taken a strong stance against employees who were suspected to have been assisting FICAC in reporting corruption and abuse"
FICAC Investigation Into Fiji Water Authority; more details later in Fijileaks; also in the Northern Division
Infrastructure Minister Pio Tikoduadua says he is now directing that the Water Authority of Fiji consider alternatives for all of its aged and eroded pipes. “We’re doing a lot of catch up there’s been a lot of neglect over the years, we’re trying to correct that now that this is the measure of our commitment, we’ve dedicated our resources, building capacity, now we’re going out there now to try and fix it, so one of the areas that w’er gonna look at primarily that I have directed Water Authority to do is find me an alternative to take waste water to Kinoya so that it does’nt have to only go through Cunningham Bridge.” Tikoduadua adds that while the Cunningham incident has literally brought the issue to the surface, it’s an example he expects to see more of.
A temporary fix has been earmarked for Cunningham Bridge with the construction a Bailey bridge to be put in place. Source: FBC News
