PM assures relief will reach every affected Fijian

February 23, 2016 5:54 am

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama says while the worst is behind us, Severe Tropical Cyclone Winston has left a terrible trail of destruction on its way.

Bainimarama says the government machinery is working 24/7 to reach those affected by TC Winston.

We realise how traumatic this is for you and your families. And we ask for your patience and understanding. But as Prime Minister, I also want you to know that we will not rest until we have reached you and given you the helping hand you so badly need and deserve. We have already made a degree of progress in alleviating this crisis. We’ve identified downed power lines and have begun repairing our fallen towers. Power has been restored to some areas, but in others – including our Western Division – damage to our power network is extensive

Bainimarama says many other sectors still require substantial assessment before they can implement appropriate responses.
