CHILDREN of Seaqaqa had a story to tell on Monday afternoon after meeting a person whom they only heard on radio, saw in the newspapers and on television.
Among the excited group of children that eagerly waited to meet Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama were sisters Merewalesi and Miriama Valentine.
Merewalesi is in Class One and Miriama is a Class Two student at Seaqaqa Primary School.
Miriama said she often heard the Prime Minister's name on the airwaves and TV.
"Now is my chance to meet the head of our government," she said.
"I am so glad that I met him. I said bula and he shook my hands."
Merewalesi shared similar sentiments, saying she wanted to meet Commodore Bainimarama in person.
"I am really proud to meet the Prime Minister right here in Seaqaqa," she said.
Their mother Vika Valentine said her daughters wanted to meet the head of government.
"As soon as they got home from school they had their shower and were waiting for me to take them to the Seaqaqa Central College grounds," she said.
