THE chiefly Vunivalu of Natewa title remains unclaimed.
This as the two traditional clans of Valelevu and Valenisau, which belong to the tribe of Sovatabua, are yet to identify and agree on a nominee for the title.
The Masitabu and traditional kingmaker of Natewa's warlord, Ratu Josese Raya, said the two clans were yet to consult with him on who the next title holder would be.
Ratu Josese said the clans had a disagreement on the nominees for the position and they had been subsequently advised to resolve the issue through dialogue.
"There is a need for the appointment and installation of a new warlord so that the vanua of Natewa can have some sense of order and leadership," he said.
"The two clans of Valelevu and Valenisau had earlier disagreed on the next title holder and I had told them to consult with each other through dialogue before coming to a final decision.
"The people of Natewa need a leader to lead them in this changing world and this will depend entirely on the decision of the two clans."
Roko tui Cakaudrove Sara Bulutani said the new title holder was yet to be identified.
"The provincial office will only advise the people of Natewa to ensure that proper dialogue and consultation is done so that they install a new warlord," Mr Bulutani said.
"The people of Natewa know their rightful leaders and it is they who are supposed to install their new paramount chief.
"The provincial office will only ensure that the intentions of government are fully implemented and that all rightful title holders are installed within the traditional iTaukei leadership system."
