Solomon Water in dispute with peace ministry

By Mike Puia

A State Owned Enterprise (SOE), Solomon Water, has hit back at the Ministry of National Unity, Reconciliation and Peace (MNURP) by disconnecting water supply to its estate at Panatina, East Honiara.

Solomon Water claimed the peace ministry has built on its land as Solomon Water’s borehole can be found within this land.

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Justus Denni, confirmed the cut.

Mr Denni said people moved in and settled in the said land, and this is how the Ministry entered and built on the land.

He did not mention any initiative to make peace with the SOE and to find a solution to the issue.

Instead, Denni said their houses are using water tanks and they are looking at getting and installing their own water pump.
