THE late president of the Soqosoqo Vakamarama in Cakaudrove, Adi Mitimiti Lewenilovo, has been described as a strong supporter of women's development in the province.

Roko tui Cakaudrove Sara Bulutani said the passing of Adi Mitimiti was a big blow to the Soqosoqo Vakamarama in Cakaudrove.

Mr Bulutani said she would be greatly missed because she played a major role in the latest developments that have taken place with women in the province.

"Adi Mitimiti used to deal with women's issues with an unwavering stand often making her views known with a bit of her Cakaudrovean humour" he said.

"She was someone that we often resorted to when it came to issues regarding women and their development within the province."
