Reconciliation done successfully in four regions of Malaita Province

The Ministry of National Unity, Reconciliation and Peace in collaboration with Malaita Peace and Reconciliation Committee through the Provincial Government, chiefs, church leaders, community leaders and NGOs has successfully completed its second phase of reconciliation through out the four regions of Malaita Province.

Malaita Provincial Government and the Coalition for National Unity and Rural Advancement government have recognised the importance of this reconciliation programme as significant prerequisite for true and meaningful development for long lasting peace that will achieve economic prosperity in longer term within the province.

The Government Communications Units says this reconciliation program became feasible after the translation of government's policy statement and the prioritization of Reconciliation and Rehabilitation as its number one priority to enable all levels of societies live in unity, peace and harmony.

The road map for this reconciliation programme was drawn in at a Leader’s Summit held in Auki in 2007.

The reconciliation program began with a two and half week training jointly coordinated by World Vision and staff from Ministry of National Unity Reconciliation and Peace on May 28 in Auki, Malaita Province.

The program further aimed at preparing the province for future reconciliation at all levels and especially the inter provincial reconciliation with Guadalcanal and other provinces in Solomon Islands.
