HONIARA City Council (HCC) Mayor Wilson Mamae has given ‘directive’ for the council’s Law Enforcement officers to step up in their duty for this year.

The Mayor is taking action in response to continued criticisms that the council is not doing its job seeing that there is increased illegal activities going on in the heart of the city such as public drinking, drunkenness, and illegal markets.

Replying media enquiries, spokesperson for the mayor’s office said the incumbent has taken note of the public criticisms and has issued the order for his law enforcement officers.

“The Mayor, HCC Clerk and Chairman of the HCC Law Enforcement have already met last Friday with law enforcement officers to discuss over this matter of concern. Mayor Mamae had given strong talk and advice for the Officers and reminded them of their duty to keep the ordinances and by-laws being part of their responsibility.

“So for assurance, the City Mayor from growing concern has given directive to the law enforcement officers to step up this year in their role.”

It is understood according to HCC that a few arrests took place in the city last week over illegal activities.

For this year, HCC says it is looking forward to improve services in the city.

As a reminder, HCC asks the general public to comply.

“We advise to please comply with HCC as we are trying to make the capital a clean, better and safe place,” said the spokesperson from HCC.

  1. Good job Sir. We need to see people step up in their jobs and also public to be responsible for keeping our town clean, etc.

  2. I think there is no need to improve the situation , after all there is too much corruption at higher place , whilst market vendor are trying to ends meet. it would look stupid when law enforcement Division are doing their duty keeping our city a city to be proud of on the other hand organised crime on high place are painting different picture of our beloved country , with the recent issue of the forestry license department, it’ would not be fair if the HCC enforcement department up held their loyalty in law and order whilst fellow citizens are deprived of there right to survive the least.. HCC boss should take a second thought before imposing action..

  3. Honiara City is our H Q we should be proud of it . It is everybody’s business to keep law and order .Nobody is above the law .Congrat. Lord Mayor. Leadership is all about taking risks ln decision making.The problem with is hard to change habits.
