More than 90 percent of people in Namosi are against the proposed mine at Waisoi.

The Tikina Namosi Landowners Committee says they conducted a survey to find out the people’s views about the proposed mine.

TNLC spokesperson – Saviriano Nariva says many are against the idea.

“We conducted a survey to find what they wanted. From there we gauged that around 92% of the people who have land in Waisoi – these people do not want mining.”

Meanwhile Namosi Provincial Council chairman – Ratu Romanu Matanitobua says there the TNLCshould follow the proper channel in releasing the survey results.

“If they have the endorsement of this number why don’t they come out of their shell and talk it out with the government. They should not try to burden the company who is trying to go forth with its work.”

The mining company – Namosi Joint Venture says they have not seen the survey and therefore cannot comment on it.

  1. Unfortunately, we do not live in a society where the wishes of some peasants are high on the regimes priority list.

  2. There have been other surveys done for this run by Lands and even NJV and they’re all well above the 90% rate. Can they comment on that? Needless to say if they have been in NJV’s favour they would have published it in the papers and took it to the regime etc…unfortunately they found that the majority of landowners are against the mine and so all the results were quietly shelved!

  3. Let the kaicolo’s from NAMOSI eat their land……hahahaha

    Any land which can be beneficial to the economy and the country as a whole should be overtaken by the government for development.

    The ‘kaicolo’, or the Tikina Namosi DO eat FROM their own land you idiot. That is probably why they don’t want it destroyed for $2.50 and a cup of tea with Frank and his thugs.

    But your own racism reveals itself eh?

    More than happy to call everyone else a ‘racist’, and be racist when it suits you. Shameful.
