The one time former deputy prime minister said the caretaker DCGA and its leadership has failed the people of this country.

“This country cannot continue under the past leadership and continue to be pulled by the nose at the expense of Solomon Islanders,” he said.

Mr Maneniaru also shared with the people why the Prime Minister sacked him in October 2019.

He said his sacking came after he voted abstain during the vote from Taiwan to China in Cabinet.

“In October 2019 when we vote for the switch, I told the Prime Minister that as his deputy I will not vote in support with him because he (PM) has lied to the people that no stones will be left unturned when making that decision,” he said.

Mr Maneniaru said he stood on his principles that the Prime Minister lied to the people of this country that thorough consultations must be done before making a decision.

“I voted in abstain because I am a man of principle. And in his own words the Prime Minister said anyone that vote in abstain must prepare to swallow caucus decision. So I swallowed caucus decision and got sacked,” he said.

The former West Are’Are MP said even some MPs were intimidated by certain senior ministers especially the former mines minister to vote in support of the decision.

“It was a decision cooked in a kitchen somewhere the night before it was brought to Cabinet,” he said.

The one time deputy PM said the decision was influenced by the agents and companies who have corrupted and infiltrated the government and politics of Solomon Islands for so long.

“That is why, I have never regretted being sacked. It is time this country needs new leadership and government. We have suffered enough,” he said.
