Solomon Islands' prime minister Manasseh Sogavare has lashed out at his critics and vowed to pass a revised anti-corruption bill during the next sitting of parliament.
Mr Sogavare received widespread criticism this week when he withdrew a much anticipated anti-corruption bill which he tabled in 2016 only to have it stall after its first reading.
The opposition group voted against its withdrawal calling it a slap in the face of Solomon Islanders standing against corruption.
Manasseh Sogavare has accused them of being against the strengthening of the proposed legislation, which was the reason he gave for its withdrawal.
Koroi Hawkins has been following the story and spoke with Johnny Blades who began by asking him about the anti-corruption bill itself.
