Last week brought news about suspicions of foul play around a young girl's body found around Lungga River mouth. The same week saw a notorious public figure resident there - John Seti Iromea - in court over alleged arson.
"Dark corner" is what the Lungga delta area around Burns Creek has become known as. These happenings beg the question - Is it improving or is it getting darker? And what does it say about Honiara and its surroundings?
