Woman ordered to pay damages

A woman from Lakepa was ordered to pay reparation after her car was crashed into a power pole on September 16 causing power outage in the area for three hours.

A judge at the Nukunuku Magistrate court yesterday ordered Losaline Tonga Ma’ata, 45, to pay for the damages she caused.

The court was told Ma’ata crashed into the power pole after she attempted to overtake a vehicle infront of her at Fatai.

She was uninjured and was charged for reckless driving.

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.
