Victims of the April floods are questioning the government over the millions of dollars donors have given in aid disaster relief.
A spokesman for the victims said they believed the funds have not been properly managed.
The claim comes as the government gave the remaining victims still occupying FOPA and Rove evacuation centres to vacate the centres by tomorrow.
The spokesman said they see how the government and its relevant authorities who dealt with their issue as being corrupt and use government’s last resort to defend its failure and corrupt practices.
“We are so concerned why millions coming in the name of disaster have never impacted well on the lives of victims,” he said.
“We are the ones affected and yet we have not felt any real impact of the aid money coming in.
“What we see is millions of dollars being mismanaged by the administrators and only benefit the administrators, individuals, and private businesses,” the victim said.
He added that the rioting and burning of the shops recently in east Honiara was a result of frustrated victims who have not been well treated.
The victim said the government seems to use the police as its last resort to defend their corrupt and bad decisions which is seen as a shameful and inhuman practice.
“Giving victims only rice, noodle and taiyo and other livelihood kits does not reflect well of the millions that could have benefited victims in some tangible way.
“How could you repatriate a person with $800 with a few goods and expect them to survive with that with their relatives or to send them back to their home villages?” the victim asked.
He further stressed that many transport businesses have benefited a lot, earning thousands and even millions from the disaster.
He added victims who have lost their properties and even lives have never been given that sort of money.
He said that picture created hatred and sad memories to victims who thought they should be the ones benefiting.
The victim said it is the practice of the government to give compensation to those losing properties and lives but to date nothing has been mentioned and done about the recent happenings.
He said these are issues that can stimulate problems that will affect innocent lives.
“The government has to understand many of those affected are also public servants who see how things unfolded to be corrupt although they don’t want to speak out.
“If these public servants decide to go with others to raise their voices against the government, it would even cause a much bigger worry and problem for this nation,” the victim added.
Meanwhile, the victim said what they want is fairness and justice in the way things are done.
He said the state of emergency has not yet been lifted and to chase people out from the evacuation camps signals a bad picture which only brings hatred and sorrow in the hearts of victims who were expected to be well looked after and protected by the government.
