MEMBERS of the Bua Provincial Council presented their i-soro to the chiefs of Cakaunitabua seeking their forgiveness over a misunderstanding.

The members included district reps and officials from the provincial office.

Bua Provincial Council chairman Alipate Radrodro told the meeting on Thursday that the i-soro from the provincial council was to help patch up differences and reconcile with chiefs.

He said there have been times in which the council had failed to meet expectations of the chiefs or the bose vanua.

Mr Radrodro said the bose vanua of chiefs have been allocated $10,000 for 2013 because their meetings in the past years have never been funded compared to the provincial council meeting.

The late Tui Bua, Adi Ana Lalanabaravi had agreed that the bose vanua be given $10,000 to cater for meetings.

The only two chiefs who attended the meeting were Buli Dama, Ratu Kinijoji Ramasima and Tui Kubulau, Ratu Apenisa Vuki.

Ratu Kinijoji accepted the i-soro from the provincial council.
