Artificial Islands and J Shiriheti

On the 17 September 2008 Joanna Sireheti reported on Solomon Times that the two factors which forced people to build the artificial islands in Langalanga and along the coast in Lau, North Malaita are because those people are outcasts and the growing population.

The above reasons are not valid. They are baseless. They have no ounce of energy. They are lies from the pit of hell.

Joanna Sireheti should have carried out comprehensive research before going out to the media to make such reports. Writing about people needs comprehensive research. Reporting without verifying your facts/ideas is not the way to report particularly when you are writing about a people that have other substantial reasons for living such a life style.

I await any response(s) from the reporter.
