Investigations underway for Lagilagi Tenants

Tenants at the Lagilagi Housing Project in Suva are being investigated by the Peoples’ Community Network.
There are reports that some residents were never squatters but still managed to secure tenancy.
Peoples Community Network Director Semiti Qalowasa has made it clear that flats at the Lagilagi Housing Project are not open to the general public.
“It’s only open to those people who are living in the squatter settlements in the Suva area especially Vatuwaqa, Jittu and Muslim League but the priority goes to those families who have given their area for development but you can only take ownership of the house if you are one of the consistent saving member.”
Qalowasa says the monitoring team of the Prime Minister’s Office received reports that non-eligible tenants are living in Lagilagi.
P.C.N has since set up a team to investigate and immediate action will be taken.
Qalowasa confirms under the initial agreement with the government, PCN can only accomodate people with no formal homes and earn less than sixteen thousand dollars per year.
