The iTaukei Affairs Ministry will circulate the first copy of the draft village by-laws tomorrow
This has been confirmed by Permanent Secretary Naipote Katonitabua at the Tailevu Provincial Council meeting in Nausori today.
Katonitabua says all village headmen will receive copies by the end of next month and time will be given for consultations.
We will need to visit the whole of Fiji each village, it will not be a standard village by law for every village because each village will have their own focus of which customs that they would like to protect or safeguard
First consultations will begin at the end of next month and will take about 8 months.
Katonitabua is optimistic that before the next financial year they will have a fair idea on when to implement the Village by laws.
