  1. If the Ministry equate the Chief’s consent amounting to free,informed prior consent of the landowners than we need call for a new election.

    We need Lawmakers who can differentiate between the chiefs and the commune/landowner. The chiefs aren’t the commune but the commune include the chief.

    To say consent is given and only sourced from the chiefs not the commune/landowners than we need the Court of Law to make a Declaration.

    I humbly request the Bua Youth to seek court declaration that the Ministry breached the condition stipulated under legislation to secure consent.

    The Court will ease your burden and you can focus on other capacity building exercises. Keep it Up
