Dear Editor – I would appreciate a space in your letters column for my views to be heard. This is about the condemnable activity in West Honiara’s Karaina community.
People in the community need not to take law in their own hands. Work for your living and stop the dependent mentality.
The dependent mentality can brought about such unlawful activity because we depend on handout money.
If only we see RCDF or funding as a bonus to our communities and not an earning, we can be thankful for such a support. Receive it or not, be thankful that you can always earn your own money for a living.
It is a real shame to fight over money that does not come from our own sweat. I would also like to warn the West Honiara Council (WHC) to stop spreading hatred amongst people. Police need to properly investigate and find out the root cause of the problem.
I am sure the newly form WHC is going around like a hungry lion looking for people to devour. Such tactics will never bring any blessings to whatever plan you are executing but curse.
It was obvious days before the incident; WHC was very active in advocating against the current MP. People should by now see the tactics used by the WHC and start making up their minds as to who to vote for.
The current MP has been helping people a lot. I must also say that some of the people the current MP employ and are responsible for projects must be removed because they are the ones responsible for some unfair distribution. I heard that some of them including the CDO only give half of funding to people and get the other half. If this is true, the MP must watch his very own supporters or they are the ones who will smear his reputation.
The MP must investigate these allegations and take drastic action.
We want fairness in everything. I am sure other constituencies also want fairness, but its good that other constituencies decided to abide by the laws. What happened in West Honiara particularly Karaina must never be encouraged. Work for our own money. God only blesses those who work to earn their own living.
I hope the problem is resolved the sooner the better. God Bless West Honiara.
