A LOT of misinformation has been propagated by certain landowners and on social media platforms about the proposed construction of three hydro dams in Namosi, says the iTaukei Land Trust Board (TLTB).

The dams which have an estimated cost of about $200m is to be built by Hydro Fiji Limited.

TLTB chief executive Tevita Kuruvakadua said claims made of the landowners not being consulted on the issuance of these leases were false.
