The Vanuatu Government is investigating the sale of public lands and green spaces in Port Vila and Luganville.

The Director General of the Ministry of Lands, Joe Ligo, says instructions have been issued by the Minister of Lands, Paul Telukluk, that they look into recent sales.

The investigations will include the sale of Mandela Park at Nambatu in Port Vila.

Mandela Park had been declared a green space for public use by the country's first Prime Minister, Father Walter Lini.
