Minister for Commerce, Industries, and Labour & Immigration (MCILI) William Bradford Marau says, that his Directorship to Skyline Motors and Hardware Group Limited (SMHGL) was later realised to contradict government policy, hence the intention to operate will not happen.
Mr Marau was responding to questions raised by the public about his involvement as a director in one to the registered company of the same people who owned Skyline Investment Group Limited that earmarked to implement the public servant housing scheme.
He said, it was an initial plan, but later they realised the purpose of the registered business will not go in line with government policy, thus they will not pursue further on that.
“This will remain only a name in the records but it won’t operate,” Minister stated. “Government policy restricted transport business only for locals, in this case I advice not to operate and so far nothing happens,” he further stated.
He added the company can pursue other commercial activities but not to operate against what stated in government’s policy, which is to protect the interests of locals in the transport business.
