The incident which happened as a result of frustration by some flood victims had cost many businesses and resources.
Honiara is a small community and when such things happen it causes fear and panic especially for the mother and children.
The country is currently going through a process of recovery, rebuilding and rehabilitation following the ethnic crisis, April 2006 riot and the recent disasters.
Therefore such an incident is costing us with loss of time and resources. On the economic side, its a setback for the country because investors would not be comfortable to come in and do business with us because of poor law and order situation we have.
Therefore parents, teachers, elders, chiefs, pastors and national leaders have a lot of work to do inorder to educate our children and youths about respect and honour.
On the other hand, the government must ensure there is economic activities happening in various parts of the country to avoid the increasing rate of urbanisation into city.
Most of those that are involved in the rioting and looting are jobless youths who have nothing to worry about and are opportunists who wants to get something as well get some attention.
In the meantime lets continue to support our police as they continue to do their job. If you have any information about the recent incident please do not hesitate to contact them today.
