North Malaitans celebrates country's independence anniversary for first time

North Malaita Constituency celebrated the country's 30th anniversary of independence with feasting and sports.

Lensley Kwaimani reports from Malu'u that this is the first time ever that the people there celebrated the national day in such a way.

He says money allocated by the national government was distributed among the three wards of the constituency, thanks to the North Malaita Constituency Development Officer John Suifalu who was entrusted by their M-P to take the funding down to the people.

The celebrations were held at Fo'ondo for ward 7, at Malu'u for ward 8 and at Loina for ward 9.

Mr Kwaimani says following the celebrations, the North Malaita Council of Chiefs met briefly with the C-D-O Mr. suifalu at Walo Community High School.

He says the meeting was to look at possible change to the constituency's name.
