North Malaita businessman clears name over attempted murder suspect

A prominent North Malaita businessman, Jehiel Kwaimani Ausuta who comes from Loina Village, says he has no link with attempted murder suspect Philip Kwaimani despite sharing the same surname.

Mr Kwaimani made the assurance after he received overwhelming phone calls both locally and overseas from people enquiring about Philip and whether he is related to him.

Kwaimani who is a partner with international building company Fletcher in the country (Fletcher Kwaimani) said he (Philip) is not a member of his family or tribe.

Philip is a suspect in the shooting of a RAMSI vehicle at Lungga Bridge in 2004.

“I don’t know this man. And I don’t know why is he using our family name,” the businessman said. Mr Kwaimani said he was also concerned because the use of his family and business name may have an effect on his business. Fletcher Kwaimani is one of the biggest construction companies in the Solomon Islands.
