The locals on the island of Ha’apai are requesting the Health Officials for an immediate assistance to address the problem towards the storage area for human waste dumping site in Fotua.
Radio Tonga Stringer on the island – Moimoi Fakahua says there is a need to ensure that the dumping site has enough space especially when they are about to host national events on the island.
He says, septic trucks and other equipment are needed in order to address the problem.
