UP to 159 constituents from North Guadalcanal received sets of building materials from their MP Samson Maneka yesterday.
These were funded through public funds under the Constituency Development Fund (CDF).
Each recipient gets 24 bags of cement, 24 steel rods, 24 pieces of iron roofing, 24 color-bond roofing and 30 sheets of mesonites.
Maneka said the housing project is for 2020 but they moved it to be rolled out this year.
He said this project is vital to his people because it is part of the North Guadalcanal development picked up during a constituency assessment exercise.
“We want to support our people in terms of our standard of living because we are living next to the country’s capital but are so careless about living,” Maneka explained.
“For this particular project we aim to accommodate all families and households in my constituency,” said Maneka.
He said the only challenge they will face in implementing the project is timber but his constancy will assist people to address this challenge.
Maneka said his staff at the constituency officer have worked hard to initiative this project to support not only the now generation but the future generation as well.
He adds by advising his people make full use of the housing materials provided to them and avoid reselling them to other people.
Maneka said the constituency would not involve in building houses but only assist families with the materials.
Constituency Project Officer Jeff Alexander said for this year their priority is on housing and water supply.
