Tokelau Ulu calls for immediate solution to ferry woes
Tokelau’s people, who are New Zealand citizens, depend entirely on the MV Tokelau for transport and supplies and the New Zealand government has been working on a replacement vessel since 2005.
Keli Kalolo said travelling on the ship, which is more than 20 years old, is especially worrisome in view of the recent sinking of a Papua New Guinea ferry and Tonga’s Princess Ashika tragedy in 2009.
“There is a fear among the leaders that we don’t want that kind of situation to happen in Tokelau, although we still need a boat. It’s good to replace this boat but we need an immediate solution to this.”
Kalolo said the council will be taking its preferred options for a replacement ferry to Tokelau’s New Zealand-based administrator later this month.
