A church leader in East Malaita has lauded his Member of Parliament (MP) Hon. Manasseh Maelanga for his development plans in East Malaita constituency.
Church leader Anthony Mamali said, Hon. Manasseh Maelanga through his leadership in the past eleven years has shown great improvements and achievements through infrastructures and assistance for his people within the East Malaita constituency.
“In the past, East Malaita is one of the lowest developed constituencies in Malaita with no strong support from previous MP’s for its development plans. I salute the East Malaita MP Hon. Maelanga for taking this leadership role and meeting the needs of the people in east Malaita through infrastructure and other assistance in the constituency”, he said.
Mamali said, East Malaita is currently setting a model both in spiritual and physical developments compared to other constituencies in Malaita province.
“We are heading towards the upcoming national general election and I call upon the good people of East Malaita to think wisely and choose a unique leader like Maelanga to lead his people especially in developments and welfare concerning the important issues within East Malaita constituency”, Mamali said.
“Today life is much easier for the people in East Malaita as they now have access to roads where transport services are daily unlike before”.
Mamali said in the past, people in the highlands in East Malaita used to walk seven to ten kilometers to reach the main road from Auki to Atori to wait for public transport.
“Today trucks are carrying people from Auki to their door steps”, Mamali said.
