TEN sub-tribes of Suava bay cannery in North malaita, Malaita province have recently met and discussed the project.
The meeting was held last Sunday at the Mana’abu Training Centre.
A spokesman Henry Kamuda said, that the meeting was organised to identify the tribes that owned the land intended for the project.
Mr Kamuda added this was another idea to settle them before the start of the project.
“There were ten sub-tribes who owned the land as identified by the Bubuni Harivafa, tribe the overall one,” Kamuda stated.
He said, that upon identifying those tribes, they were also given chances to sign their land.
“This was to certify that these are the real owners of the particular place.”
Mr Kamuda added that this idea was given by the DCC government after their meeting with those tribes few months ago.
He said, that tribes are now settling them waiting for the project to kick.
He stated that this does not stop any tribes besides them who want to join in.
“All are welcome but make sure you settle your land areas with your people and come in,” the spokesman said.
