Its leader Ro Teimumu Kepa said despite millions being given to the Water Authority of Fiji, water woes had plagued people in Nadi, Labasa, Navua and the Suva area.

Ro Teimumu said she was contacting the relevant minister to investigate the situation urgently because it was a matter of public interest.
