Vanuatu’s capital municipal council seeks assistance in waste management

Port Vila’s Town Clerk Peter Sakita has sought assistance from the Japanese International Cooperation in the area of waste management for the city.

Sakita paid a courtesy call on the JICA Resident Representative Naoki Takechi to see how the organisation could help the municipal council.

He had informed Lord Mayor Albert Daniel, Port Vila councilors and PVMC staff that it is his "vision to take the council to another step."

"I have discovered during my short time with the Council that waste management need to be established on its own while the JICA funded heavy machines in the dump site could not be fixed by our mechanics," Sakita told Takechi during the visit.

Sakita has wealth of experience in management. He worked with previous commissions established to oversee the running of PVMC when the Minister of Internal Affairs suspended the council in the past.

And, recently he was the town clerk of Luganville.

The Port Vila Municipal Council had been without a town clerk since 2016.
The Public Service Commission appointed Sakita town clerk after the position was advertised.
