The Min­istry of the iTaukei Af­fairs has re­cently ap­pointed three Roko Tui to be posted to their pro­vin­cial of­fices. Ac­cord­ing to the Per­ma­nent Sec­re­tary Naipote Ka­tonitabua the se­lec­tion cri­te­ria was high and was happy that the three met the cri­te­ria. All three had uni­ver­sity de­grees which was ben­e­fi­cial for the min­istry, he said. He said there would be changes in the pro­vin­cial coun­cils as there would be new post­ings to be made soon. Mr Ka­tonitabua said the Roko Tui had a great re­spon­si­bil­ity to carry out es­pe­cially with the re­forms of the min­istry. One of the re­forms he said was on service de­liv­ery as the Roko Tui needed to im­prove on this. “They are there to serve and not to be served,” he said. The new Roko Tui should be in of­fice be­fore the pro­vin­cial coun­cil meet­ings this year. The new ap­pointees and their des­ig­nated pro­vin­cial ap­point­ments will be made later.

The Naitasiri Pro­vin­cial Coun­cil meet­ing will be on Au­gust 4 in Vu­nidawa. The two-day meet­ing will dis­cuss the new pro­vin­cial coun­cil of­fice and other de­vel­op­ments in the prov­ince.
