New Tui Suva to be installed

THE people of Suvavou have been advised to install the next Tui Suva.

It comes after the death of Tui Suva, Metuisela Mudunavosa on February 14. His funeral was held on Thursday.

Dona Takalaiyale, on instructions of the Roko Tui Dreketi, Ro Temumu Kepa told the chiefly family that Burebasaga would wait for the outcome of their decision.

Suvavou is part of the Rewa province.

"Sa cuva toka na kena bilo, sa gauna me vuki cake tale kina (The chiefly cup had turned down and it's about time it should be turned up again)," said Mr Takalaiyale.

He said the people of Suvavou should make the right and wise decision.

He advised them to ask for God's intervention to be part of their decision making to elect the right leader.

Therefore, he said their decision should be based on the footprints that were left by the late Tui Suva.

"You should put away your differences and work toward electing the right chief. The elected one should achieve more than the late Tui Suva had left for his people."

Mr Takalaiyale said the position of the Tui Suva was about responsibility.

"Look beyond your nose to better elect the right one.

"Burebasaga is waiting for your decision," he said.
