CONSTITUENTS of Lau/Mbaelelea in North Malaita have described their constituency as the least developed in the country.
Speaking to the Solomon Star, a group of constituents said that for the past four to eight years, no major development has been implemented by past MP’s of the Constituency.
“Most of our schools are still run down, clinics have never been upgraded, roads are in their worst state and even projects intended for constituents were never given to those who deserve it.
“Our MPs have over the years been most self serving and only support their supporters.
“Such mentality needs to change if we are to develop our constituency in the future,” spokesperson for the group Peter Silas said.
Mr Silas even added that for years, islanders living on artificial islands in the Lau lagoons have been the least supported with regards to projects and other issues of concern such as climate change.
Mr Silas was speaking in support of Niuleni artificial island elder, Abel Satu who called on the government to consider kick starting negotiations for islanders to relocate to the mainland with the effects of climate change now slowly swallowing up their islands.
“Future leaders of Lau/Mbaelelea must look seriously into these concerns and start developing our constituency.
“We have been silent and suffered for far too long,” Mr Silas said.
