THE Native Land Commission has directed the Fiji Police Force to stop tomorrow’s proposed installation of Ratu Epenisa Cakobau as the Vunivalu of Bau.
This was confirmed by chairperson of the NLC Ratu Isireli Vananalagi Vesikula during a press conference held at the iTaukei Affairs Ministry this afternoon.
He said the decision was made after the NLC tried to solve a dispute between the members of Tui Kaba chiefly households on the island of Bau.
He said the NLC had also received a letter from Ratu George Cakobau challenging the decision to have Ratu Epenisa installed as the Vunivalu of Bau.
