MEMBERS of Parliament (MPs) for the four constituencies of Makira/Ulawa Province are being told to work together in developing the capital, Kirakira.
This was raised by a local Kirakira resident Simon Waki.
“Today, Kirakira is lacking what other provincial capitals in the country are having in terms of development.
“There are no proper wharf, market area, and other facilities that a provincial capital should have,” the concerned man told the Solomon Star.
“The four MPs together with the provincial ward members must take the issue of developing Kirakira seriously.
“It is a must that the capital must be upgraded to a standardized environment that the people of Makira/Ulawa can be proud of,” he added.
A visit through the station by the Solomon Star last Friday has seen some progressive developments at the Police station and the Hospital area.
However, such development was described by Mr Waki as limited and more work needs to be done.
“Developing the capital will see more businesses within the station and more revenue collection for the province.
“It is time now that the MPs and provincial members do some work in developing the peaceful capital of Makira/Ulawa province,” Waki told the Solomon Star.
