“We the people of Tikopia and Anuta Islands want Mr Forauto explain to us how he had used the shipping grant given by the government.
“We want an explanation from him (MP) before the national general election,” he said.
Mr Putanakipenua said most of the people in these two islands are fully aware of this specific fund.
He claimed most of the people have valid documents about this shipping grant, so the MP should come clear to explain it.
