Manaoba – A sad story for this nation

SO the government had spent $60 million to build the tiny airstrip of Manaoba in the northern region of Malaita. On the other hand, Munda, in the Western Province, which was built to international standard, cost only $40 million. Munda has since been receiving local and international commercial flights, while Manaopa is yet to open.…

Securing the common border

LACK of police, immigration, and quarantine presence at the Solomon Islands-Papua New Guinea common border is a long-standing issue. But past governments seem not to have taken it seriously.

The Family

Welcome to our new topic of discussion for the next couple of weeks. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians in Ephesus and said these words, “The whole family in heaven and earth” (Ephesians 3:15).

Be calm, it’s business as usual

THE FATE of a no-confidence motion tabled against Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare lies with a High Court ruling expected this morning. The motion, to be moved by Opposition leader Jeremiah Manele, is scheduled for today’s parliament sitting.
