This was relayed to The Fiji Times by one of the members of Cakaudrove Provincial Council member Terikano Takesau.
Mr Takesau said a total of 62 houses had been identified for the rehabilitation program.
"These are the houses which were damaged by Hurricane Tomas last year and the families have been living with relatives," Ms Takesau said.
Lt Col Moceica said he was made aware of the rehabilitations works including the four houses that were damaged because of severe soil ersosion.
"These matters will be highlighted to the prime minister during his visit to the Northern Division in the following few months," Lt. Col Moceica said.
He said the projects on Rabi and Kioa were directly handled by the Prime Minister's Office.
It used to be handled by the multi-ethnic affairs portfolio, which was scraped off.
