Fourth Mayors General Meeting (MGM4) Kicks Off in North Tarawa

The fourth Kiribati Mayors General Meeting, or MGM4, was for the first time, hosted in a rural area council, Eutan Tarawa Council of North Tarawa. This was the decision of the third MGM, held in USP, Teaoraereke in 2016, on the proposal by the Mayor, Harry Tekaiti.
It was Thursday, 14 June, 2018, when all Mayors went to North Tarawa, the host for the MGM4. The one-hour lagoon crossing from the Parliament wharf in Ambo was blessed with a very calm sea, as if the Mayors were welcomed also by Bakoa, the supreme god of the sea. All 23 Mayors were on the wa-uoua, including the three Mayors from the Line Islands, who had just arrived that morning from Kiritimati, via a night’s transit in Nadi, Fiji.
