The Water Authority of Fiji (WAF) is concerned with reports of graffiti vandalism to its outdoor signage.

This is after the Authority noticed graffiti vandalism on its outdoor signage at the Viria Housing Pump Station in Vatuwaqa, Suva.

WAF General Manager Customer Services, Sekove Uluinayau has issued a stern warning to vandals to refrain from committing such activity to its assets around the country.

“It is an eyesore to see our signage plastered with graffiti, this is an act of deranged minds who have no appreciation of cleanliness, beauty, order or peace,” said Mr Uluinayau.

“They need to respect and not tamper with WAF assets. It is disappointing to see that someone has vandalized our signage at the Viria Housing Pump Station in Vatuwaqa – these signages do not come cheap.”

“Graffiti vandals are being warned and are to refrain from marking and defacing any WAF premises or assets without permission. Graffiti vandalism is very costly to remove.”

“The matter has been referred to the Fiji Police Force and a stern warning goes out these graffiti artists to refrain from doing these acts, it does not look good and is now an eyesore,” explained Mr Uluinayau.

The Authority calls on members of the public with any information or if anyone who may have witnessed anything in terms of the graffiti to contact Police on 919.
