I was quite perturbed and shocked to learn that an MOA was signed between the PM's office and KLTB Chairman Hugh Paia on the eve of Munda airfield handing over ceremony by the New Zealand Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully in Munda.
Where and how did this Board was formed is a mystery.
When did they meet with the people of Kazukuru in Munda to seek their consent to form this Board and not from the Kazukuru people living only in Honiara?
The Board consist of only 5 members that reflect the 5 original signatory to the Deed of gift of the Munda airfield, a present to the Queen.
They are Billy Gina son of Jacob Zinghite, Hugh Paia son of Willie Paia, Connie Grouse grand-daughter of Obed Bisili, Aubrey Talasasa, grand-nephew of Milton Talasasa and Tony Langstone grandson of Dan Bea.
All these people lived in Honiara.
As one can tell does this Board truly represent the whole people or tribes of Kazukuru or does the name 'Kazukuru' as portrayed in their Board’s name has been grossly misrepresented.
Secondly why did the PM's office accept readily to sign an MOA with the KLTB?
Why not sign a MOA with the MMF also?
There are no members from the Gumi-Gemu tribe especially Kekehe in this Board, neither Kindu nor Dunde to justify the name 'Kazukuru'.
This means that any matters of interest relating outside of their circle will never be addressed only be discarded into the rubbish bin except theirs.
Where does their budget come from to run the board’s affairs?
I'm concerned because this board can hinder development for the whole people of Kazukuru.
