Mr Siovi says Premier Veke failed to organize Executive Members and Provincial staff to attend the burial service of the late GG at the Saint Barnabas Cathedral in Honiara on February 19.
He said Mr Veke also failed to
attend the burial service of late Sir Baddely, who was also Paramount Chief of
East Tasimoboko, at his Thadiboko village, North East Guadalcanal on February
Mr Siovi said it was very
embarrassing that Premier Veke decided to stay away from the burial services
while dignitaries including the current GG Sir Frank Kabui, Chief Justice Sir
Albert Palmer, Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo, former GG Sir Nathaniel Waena,
Archbishop of the Church of Melanesia, David Vunagi, Government officials and
business executives attended.
He said Mr Veke as the Provincial
leader should have taken the lead in paying the last respect for a national
leader and a traditional leader from Guadalcanal Province.
Mr Siovi said while he appreciates Mr Veke’s apology for being absent from the burial services, and his contributions towards the services, “I call on him to change his non-caring attitude”.
