Bulivou says the involvement of their youths in illegal activities has portrayed a bad image not only for the two respective villages but for Kadavu as a whole.

He assured the delegation that steps were being actively pursued to discuss how to work with stakeholders in tackling the illegal trade.

Divisional Police Commander South, SSP Pita Keni while accepting the apology acknowledged the vanua’s support towards efforts in combating illicit drugs for the sake of the future generation.
