Tonga Police open new garage and workshop

The Tongan Police have opened a new garage and workshop on Wednesday at Longlongo Police Academy and Headquaters, a project funded by the Japanese government.


It says the project aimed at making sure Police vehicles are serviced and upgraded at all times because of the importance for them to reach out to the Tongan community whenever it’s needed.


The Hon. Police Minister Siosifa Tūʻutafaiva officially opened the new garage and the workshop and thanked the government of Japan for the project.


Hon Tūʻutafaiva said it is important for the Police to make use and take care of the new garage and workshop.


Representing the Japanese Government, Ambassador Dr Kazuchika Hamuro said his government was happy to fund the project as part of the Japan Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Projects commonly known as GGP.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
