Leader of Opposition challenge the Sikua-led government to tell the thruth about the fund allocate for tsunami victims in his previous government.
The accusation was described as "a slap in the face" for the Western Provincial government and its hundreds of homeless people victimized by the April 2007 tsunami.
Mr. Sogavare told SIBC news that his government prioritized the rehabilitation of the tsunami victims, and millions of dollars was allocated for the rehabilitation programme.
The Leader of Opposition reiterated on his claims that the money was misappropriated by the MP for Gizo/Kolombangara, Gordon Darcy Lilo who was Minister of Finance at the time.
Mr. Sogavare said it was for that reason that he removed Mr. Lilo from the Ministry of Finance and Treasury, a move that led to the toppling of his government.
The Opposition Leader told SIBC that instead of accusing the former Government of negligence, Dr Sikua should demand Mr Lilo, now Environment and Conservation Minister to apologize to the Western Provincial government and people for corrupting the rehabilitation funding.
Mr. Sogavare said Dr Sikua must always remember the painful truth that his government was formed out of corruption and that his attempts to suppress the truth would not prevail.
The former Prime Minister told SIBC that it was his stand against corruption, and for the truth, that resulted in his downfall and he was proud of that record.
