Funeral for Tui Nakelo

Siteri Sauvakacolo
Friday, January 17, 2014

Update: 12:51PM THE Tui Nakelo Ratu Manasa Talakuli will be laid to rest at the chiefly burial ground in Nauluvatu, Nakelo today.

Traditional warriors (Bati) guarded the village from yesterday to await the arrival of their late chief who slept at his chiefly residence of Marakileweni for the last time before heading to his final resting place.

Roko Tui Tailevu Semisi Saukawa said the province of Tailevu presented its I- Reguregu yesterday.

He said the Tui Vuda Ratu Eparama Kitione Tavaiqia also led the I- Reguregu from Viseisei which has traditional ties to Nakelo while the Vunivalu Ratu Epenisa Cakobau led the entourage from the chiefly island of Bau where the Tui Nakelo's late wife Adi Samanunu was from.

The government will present its I- Reguregu today prior to the church service before he would be finally laid to rest at the Sau Tabu later today.

The late Ratu Manasa who was in his 70s died last week after a long illness.
