New Subdistrict formed on Savu

A new subdistrict has been formed on Savu, combining the villages of Ei Mada Kee (Eimadake), B'eb'ae (Bebae), Dj'ii Wuwu (Jiwuwu), Ei Lode (Eilode), Ma Tei (Mataei), Lobo Adj'u (Loboaju) and Tada, all of which had previously belonged to Eastern Savu. There are thus four villages remaining in the subdistrict of Eastern Savu: B'o Lou (Bolou), B'o D'ae (Bodae), Lii Meg'u (Limagu) and Lobo Dei (Lobodei). The new subdistrict has been given the name Central Savu and Ei Mada Kee has been chosen as its capital.

Western Savu has also proposed to divide its subdistrict into two. Six villages have signed up to form the new subdistrict, which will be called Northern Savu.
