Government has taken over the Lagilagi Housing Project

The Fijian Government has taken over the Lagilagi Housing project and will ensure all Fijians are assisted.

This is after complaints were received from residents of Jittu Estate about Peoples Community Network’s (PCN) failure to provide housing at the Lagilagi low-cost housing project.

The Ministry also received a comprehensive 635-page report regarding the Lagilagi Housing investigation conducted by the Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission (FCCC).

At a press conference today, Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Housing and Community Development Hon. Premila Kumar stressed that Government will not tolerate any abuse of funds, especially when it was given to build low cost housing for Fijians living in the vicinity.

“Those found engaged in such activity will face the full brunt of the law.”

The Minister added that the Fijian Government is committed to the welfare of Fijians and will continuously look at ways to help the people of Fiji.
