DESPITE CUTTING DOWN on all operations, we still have a few visitors now and then like this fellow from the island of Santo.
His name is Frank Nisa from Kole, East Santo. The last time he was in Port Vila was over five years ago, and that was that he came to the Transparency International Vanuatu (TIV) office to get a copy of the Mama Law (National Constitution) book that TIV distributes freely through the communities that we visit.
He returned back home with this Mama Law only to have a relative, who is a politician, want it. So Frank gave away his copy of the Mama Law book.
Five years later and he is now back in Port Vila on family matters, he pops into the TIV office and the first words he says are; “do you still have copies of the Mama Law?”.
Of course we still have some! So we asked to him to sit down and brought three different booklets about Corruption, Right & Duties, and the Mama Law.
We talked a little about the importance of each booklet and how the Mama law guaranteed our transition from statelessness to becoming a Ni-Vanuatu citizen.
He left the office a very happy man.
HAPPY 37TH FREEDOM ANNIVERSARY PEOPLE OF VANUATU!
