We want water - in Cikobia - and in Suva
While we feel sympathy for the people on Cikobia Island because their water supply is contaminated with salt water, we also know that the people in Suva suffer the cutting off of their water supplies day in, day out. Taps are often dry with some excuse or other from the government departments. It is so unhealthy to have a house full of visitors and the taps are dry. Bottled water has been sent to Cikobia plus forty officials to a population of about 70 people. Good. I hope the houses can be rebuilt quickly, etc. But remember the long-suffering residents in Cunningham, Tamavua,and other suburbs that live day by day with sudden cut-offs.
I found an old cartoon from the Fiji Times.
