Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka has reassured farmers and tenants that the State will honor all existing titles and land lease agreements.

“I want to assure tenants on these parcels of land, do not panic and do not allow these rumor-mongers to stop you from cultivating your farm, making a new investment or extending your existing investment.”

He said the People’s Coalition Government will ensure that all laws, existing titles and leases on land will continue to be upheld.

“We ask that those who spreading this rumors to stop their malicious rumor-mongering.”

“Decision on lease renewals, etc will be carried out only after extensive consultations and in accordance with due process of the law.”
